What is a Lower Body Lift Surgery?

A lower body lift, sometimes known as a 360 tummy tuck, is a surgical contouring procedure that removes excess skin and fat to lift and reshape specific areas of your body that have been altered by age, weight loss, and/or pregnancy. Targeting the mid and the lower body, a lower body lift typically addresses the abdomen, buttocks, lower back, flanks, and thighs. Depending on your specific treatment plan, an incision all the way around the waist may be performed, which permits the greatest amount of lift and skin excision. This is a major treatment and can reshape a patient’s lower body, providing stunning results. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan is dedicated to the art and science of providing you with results that you will love. For many patients, a lower body lift surgery helps to not just reach their weight loss goals but also to complete their total transformation with a taut figure that looks healthy and normal.

Can I Have a Lower Body Lift?

You may be a good candidate for a lower body lift if you have lost a lot of weight and are battling challenges due to that weight loss, including loose, wrinkled skin on the upper thighs and buttocks, skin that hangs on the abdomen, and sagging skin across the middle section. For those who are a candidate for this surgery, it's important to have realistic goals, which Dr. Sawan will help you understand during your consultation. You should be aware that despite incredible results, scarring is a part of this surgery because of the large incisions. Your procedure will also need a long recovery period compared to other cosmetic surgeries so it's helpful to plan if you work or have small children. Lastly, it is critical that you are at your healthy goal weight when undergoing lower body lift surgery.

How is a Lower Body Lift Performed?

Your lower body lift will be done while you are under general anesthesia; you may require an overnight stay, in which case Dr. Sawan will help you plan accordingly. Your surgery can last anywhere between 4 – 7 hours. The surgical incision is typically made along where a belt would be worn, which is why it is also known as a circumferential 360 or in some cases, a beltectomy. After the incision is carefully made by Dr. Sawan, he will perform liposuction to eliminate any excess fat, and hanging skin will be trimmed away. Your remaining skin will be draped taut and attached with surgical sutures. Compression garments will be placed over the treated area to help create a slimmer appearance, as well as to control bleeding, swelling, and bruising.

What Can I Expect After My Lower Body Lift?

A lower body lift is considered an advanced cosmetic procedure. It will likely take you at least two weeks to resume easy activities, and in some cases, it could take up to six months before you are able to return to more strenuous activities, including exercise. Dr. Kamal Sawan or a member of his team will go over very detailed instructions on how to best care for your wounds so that scars are minimized for the best results. While the recovery may seem long, the results are extraordinary. Once you heal, you will be left with a smoother, tighter body without the loose, hanging skin that holds you back from living a full life. Many patients feel it's one of the most valuable elective procedures available today.
