Stubborn fat and loose skin on the lower body can be extremely frustrating and even uncomfortable, often making it difficult to wear your favorite clothing and sometimes causing chafing and other irritations. At Sawan Surgical Aesthetics, many men and women have finally achieved their ultimate transformation with lower body lift surgery, which can help reduce or even get rid of loose, hanging skin and resistant pockets of fat on the lower body. One area that is often addressed during a lower body lift is the lower back. Here, board-certified Oklahoma City plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan answers popular FAQs about lower body lift surgery, including how the procedure can help slim and smooth the lower back.

What's included in a lower body lift?

Because every person's body type, concerns, and goals are unique, each lower body lift surgery is customized following a thorough consultation. Generally speaking, a lower body lift is used to address the unwanted side effects of weight loss and aging, such as loose skin, hanging folds of skin, and pockets of fat that have become resistant to diet and exercise. Some of the areas commonly included in a lower body lift are:

  • Lower abdomen
  • Lower back
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks

How does a lower body lift improve the lower back?

When it comes to the lower back specifically, patients often struggle with bulging fat rolls and extra skin, which may be due to genetics, weight loss, or age. During a lower body lift, Dr. Sawan will make an incision around the lower body, near the area where a belt would typically be worn. Through this incision, excess fat can be removed via liposuction, and loose skin can be trimmed away. The remaining skin is then pulled taut over the newly enhanced contours for a smoother, slimmer body shape. This can help to dramatically reduce lower back fat, back rolls, a bulging muffin top, and more.

Where is the scar for lower body lift surgery?

Patients considering lower body lift surgery should have realistic expectations for their recovery time and outcome. Compared to other procedures, the recovery after lower body lift is often lengthier and more involved, as the procedure addresses multiple large areas of the body. Additionally, it is important that patients understand they will have a visible scar after the procedure. In many cases, lower body lift incisions run the full circumference of the body, which allows for the most complete transformation. Even with a lower body lift scar, however, patients often report that their stunning new physique is well worth it. Additionally, the scar after lower body lift surgery can typically be concealed with reasonable clothing and even some swimwear.

Is lower body lift surgery permanent?

The results of a lower body lift can be long-lasting, but patients should keep in mind that the natural aging process will not stop and that future weight fluctuation can impact their outcome. By maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle, however, lower body lift results can last for years or even decades.
