Lower Body Lift Denver

A thigh buttock lift is frequently combined with an abdominoplasty, and this is called a Lower Body Lift, a procedure very common among weight loss and bariatric patients. This involves a circumferential incision through which the excess lax skin of the buttock, lower back and hip areas is removed, elevating and tightening the buttock and lateral thigh skin while removing excess abdominal skin and tightening the abdominal wall muscles. Patients with more significant laxity of the anterior abdominal skin may also require a vertical midline incision to achieve a more three dimensional removal of skin. That way skin is tightened in two directions pulling both down and toward the midline.

Details of this procedure can be found under the Abdominoplasty and Thigh-Buttock Lift headings. Of course combining these two procedures leads to a more prolonged recovery with limitations in mobility
