What is a lower Body Lift?

Losing weight is a great way to improve your appearance and health. Unfortunately, you may be left with loose skin around the midsection. A body lift is a surgical procedure in which excess skin is trimmed away and lifted to reshape the body. Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi often recommends lower body lifts to patients who lose a significant amount of weight and are left with hanging skin on the abdomen, lower back, buttocks, hips, and thighs. The procedure may be performed with liposuction to remove small fat pockets as well. Dr. Khorsandi will consult with each patient to discuss the best approach to take. Depending on how much loose skin is going to be removed, a circumferential (360-degree) incision may be used. This treatment is reserved for those who are near their weight goals and want to complete their transformation.

Surgical Technique

A lower body lift is also called a belt lipectomy because the incision is made around the belt area around the lower torso. The incision may be extended to the buttocks and thighs. During surgery, sagging skin is trimmed away while the remaining tissue is lifted and secured by sutures. Liposuction may be used if there’s excess fat. There are also cases when the fat harvested from liposuction is reinstated into the buttocks for an instant butt lift. These cosmetic procedures may be combined in one session or they may be staged, depending on your personal circumstances.

35 Male - Body Lift and Gynecomastia Surgery - Las Vegas, NV - I decided to visit Dr. Khorsandi after doing some research online. After the initial consultation, I felt comfortable and confident enough with Dr Khorsandi to proceed with scheduling surgery. My surgery was to be in two, or possibly three stages. I am a 35 year old male who lost a lot of weight (naturally) about 12 years ago and have remained extremely health conscious and active ever since. Dr. Khorsandi recommended a belt lipectomy procedure in response to my areas of concern. If you know anything about this procedure, you are aware that it is very a extensive and time consuming surgery. This procedure lasted roughly 7 hours and required a few months of healing before I could resume my normal gym activity. It is now 14 months later and I'm extremely happy with everything. Scars are minimal and I couldn't imagine better results. The care and attention of Dr. Khorsandi and his staff is amazing. I had no problem getting a hold of him whether he was at his office, home or traveling (which I needed to a few times during the first few months of healing). My second area of concern was my chest (which had not retracted fully from weight loss). Dr. Khorsandi performed two procedures, the final one being two weeks ago. Again, I couldn't imagine better results. He has reshaped it and reduced areas which have lost elasticity leaving me with a chest that I never thought I'd have. Note that I'm very particular and had higher than normal expectations to begin with. I was very nervous in the beginning stages only to be relieved and happy at the end. If he can do this well on such extensive and detailed procedures as he did with mine, I can easily see why he has such excellent reviews in all other areas. Chris 2/12/15

Dr. Khorsandi is god sent - My experience with Dr. Khorsansi has been incredible from the start. He is very caring, smart and extremely passionate about his practice. I’ve never meet another doctor like him, and I’ve gone thru my fair share of doctors for my previous procedures that led me Dr. K. I am for ever grateful to Dr. Khorsandi for taking on my VERY hard case.?What made my case tough was that I’ve had so much ...

During/After the Procedure

A lower body lift is performed with general anesthesia and requires an overnight stay in a hospital or accredited surgical facility. Due to its nature, spinal anesthesia may also be administered. The surgery lasts from 5 – 8 hours, depending on the treatment areas involved. It is important for patients to keep in mind that a lower body lift will require slower recovery. Aside from the extensive incisions, your body and skin need time to adjust to their new positions. Most patients will need 2 – 3 weeks before returning to a light routine. It can take up to a full year for the final results of this surgery to appear.

Expected Cost

Lower body lift surgery can cost an average of $10,000 – $17,000. The cost depends on the patient’s aesthetic goals and the number of procedures performed in one session. Costs may fluctuate if the surgical sessions are staged into separate procedures. During the initial consultation, we will discuss the recommended treatment plan and associated costs. Virtual consultations are $100 and in-person consults $300 the consult fee goes towards the procedure they are non-refundable.
