A lower body lift can significantly enhance your quality of life after substantial weight loss. This procedure, offered by Dr. Kamal Sawan at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics in Oklahoma City, OK, addresses the common issue of loose skin after weight loss, which can be difficult to address with diet and exercise alone. This surgery helps contour and tighten the lower body, providing both physical and emotional benefits.

What is a lower body lift?

A lower body lift, also known as a 360 tummy tuck, is a comprehensive surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen, buttocks, and flanks. It effectively targets areas that often don't respond well to diet and exercise alone after significant weight loss. This surgery is particularly beneficial for those who have experienced massive weight loss, whether through bariatric surgery or lifestyle changes. By removing sagging skin and reshaping the lower body, Dr. Sawan can help you achieve a more toned and contoured appearance.

Can a 360 tummy tuck help deal with loose skin after weight loss?

After significant weight loss, loose skin around the midsection can be a persistent issue. A 360 tummy tuck addresses this by removing excess skin from the abdomen, back, and flanks, resulting in a tighter and smoother appearance. This procedure helps individuals who have undergone massive weight loss achieve a more balanced and natural body contour. Beyond the aesthetic benefits, it significantly enhances comfort by reducing skin irritation and mobility restrictions caused by excess skin. Individuals find daily activities easier and more enjoyable without the discomfort and limitations of excess skin.

How does a lower body lift work?

The process starts with a consultation at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics in Oklahoma City, OK, where Dr. Sawan will assess your specific needs and goals. During the surgery, which typically takes several hours, general anesthesia is used to ensure patient comfort. Incisions are made around the lower torso to remove excess skin and fat. The remaining skin is then lifted and sutured into place, resulting in a smoother and firmer appearance. The procedure can be tailored to address the unique concerns of each patient, ensuring optimal results.

What is the recovery like after body lift surgery?

Recovery from body lift surgery varies depending on the extent of the procedure and individual patient factors. Typically, patients can expect a recovery period of several weeks. During this time, it is important to follow Dr. Sawan's post-operative instructions carefully to ensure optimal healing. Patients will need to wear compression garments to reduce swelling and support the new body contours. It's also important to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for at least six weeks. Most patients can return to light activities and work within 2 – 3 weeks, but full recovery may take several months.
