Body Lift AZ Surgeons Overview

The lower body lift is a series of multiple plastic surgeries that can create aesthetic changes and improve the appearance of the torso, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.

At Elite Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, AZ, our plastic and reconstructive surgeons, Dr. Rozbeh Torabi, Dr. Ramyar Torabi, and Dr. Radbeh Torabi, can combine several lift procedures at the same time to remove excess skin on the lower body.

This process will dramatically eliminate unwanted fat (resistant to diet and exercise) and excess skin to create a sleeker, slimmer body contour. After a private consultation, our plastic surgeons can make suggestions about surgical excision and nonsurgical body contouring procedures (laser and ultrasonic fat removal, liposuction, and CoolSculpting®) based on your particular case. Although results and techniques used may vary, your personalized treatment plan can put you on the path to a firmer, leaner you.

Reasons for LBL

Many patients seek a lower body lift for the following reasons:

  • Stubborn fat that resides in the abdominal wall, thighs, and buttocks
  • Lax skin in multiple areas of the lower body
  • Recent loss of a significant amount of body weight
  • A desire to change the shape of their body for a more attractive figure

Body Lift Surgical Technique

As discussed during your treatment planning session, there will be multiple procedures completed at once during a lower body lift. Common procedures performed during a lower body lift are a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), panniculectomy, thigh lift, and butt lift. The surgical techniques will be discussed with you, along with the risks and what type of scarring will be left behind.

Our diligent plastic surgeons will take the necessary precautions to hide scarring made by the incisions within the natural folds and creases of your skin. We can also mask or remove scars with nonsurgical scar removal procedures or paramedical micropigmentation once the wounds are fully healed.

During and After Body Lift Surgery

All of your lower body lift procedures will be performed at a local hospital or an accredited surgical center with a general anesthetic. Depending on the number of procedures performed as part of your lower body lift, the length of your operation can potentially last three to four hours or longer. You may be required to spend several nights in the hospital so that your progress can be monitored, as this is a very extensive procedure. Your post-operation nurse will also manage your level of pain and provide post-op incision care.

Body Lift Recovery Time and Healing

Once you are recovering at home, we ask that you rest for at least two weeks post-op and continue to take any medications you were prescribed. Swelling and bruising are normal body responses to this surgery, and it may take six months or more to fully recover. Delayed healing, bleeding, scarring, infection, and blood clotting in the legs are all risks that can be avoided with precaution and care.

You will need to make gentle movements starting on the day after your surgery to keep your blood circulating. Wear compression garments as recommended by your plastic surgeon, but especially wear the abdominal compression garment for the first 12 weeks. You may be able to resume strenuous activities in week eight or at the recommendation of your plastic surgeon.

Other Considerations

Though differences will be visible within the first week, it takes six to 12 months before the optimal appearance becomes apparent in your body contour. Your skin will continue to age, and you will still experience a skin laxity change over the course of your lifetime. It is truly important to adhere to a healthy lifestyle and exercise regimen after a lower body lift so that you can enjoy the results of this surgery for as many years as possible.

Beautiful You with LBL Surgery

When you are at your goal weight, and it has stabilized, you may be left with unwanted excessive skin that will not be remedied by more diet and exercise. Many patients of Dr. Torabi need surgical intervention to achieve that last step in their body transformation. We also see patients who have mature skin that has lost its elasticity and want to reshape their lower body and remove the lax skin. We would love to schedule a consultation with you to discuss how you could benefit from a lower body lift.
