The lower body lift raises the buttocks and thighs while tightening the lower back and the abdomen. Some patients who previously had a tummy tuck seek a completion of their surgical result by doing the thigh and buttock lift.
But in the patient who has not yet had any lift surgery, the thigh and buttock lift is combined with a tummy tuck. This complete lower body lift is the most commonly requested procedure in massive weight loss patients. It tightens the trunk and the waist, raises the buttocks, and smoothes the thighs.
One of the most striking results in all of plastic surgery are patients who have had lower body lifts. Dr. Teitelbaum has been doing them for many years and has the experience to design an ideal body lift for each patient’s particular needs. He goes to the finest level of detail in order to help place the incisions where they will be the least conspicuous and to create the greatest amount of lifting and tightening where it is needed the most.
