Often when there is laxity and redundancy of the abdominal wall soft tissue, there is also laxity and redundancy of the skin and soft tissue on the thighs and buttocks. This sagging skin of the buttocks, thighs, and flanks can often times distort the contour of the body as well as produce skin irregularities or cellulite.
A Lower Body Lift procedure is an extension of an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, which follows the bikini line around the entire body. In addition to the benefits of an abdominoplasty, it removes excess skin and fat and lifts the soft tissues of the thighs and buttocks. It accomplishes more than just removing redundant skin. A Lower Body Lift actually rejuvenates the appearance of the body by tightening the supportive soft tissues of the treated area and can also improve cellulite.
