Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

Following substantial weight loss, excess skin can hang from the hips, and from the outer and inner thighs. This can be very frustrating for those who have worked hard to lose weight because the skin will never regain the elasticity it once had.

The only way to fix this problem is through a body lift procedure that surgically removes the excess skin and tightens these areas. This will:

  • Create a new, smoother contour
  • Help you look younger
  • Allow you finally enjoy the fruits of your labor

The Body Lift Procedure

Body/thigh lift is performed under general anesthesia. For an outer (lateral) thigh and buttock lift, the incision extends from hip to hip across the top of the buttocks. It is strategically placed so that it can be concealed under a bathing suit or undergarments.

This 23-year-old patient requested Dr. Parker improve the contour of his abdomen and flanks. He had bariatric surgery 4 years prior and subsequently lost 250 pounds. Dr. Parker performed a lipoabdominoplasty, liposuction of the patient’s flanks, and a body lift. Approximately 20 pounds of skin and fat were removed.

Recovery After a Body Lift

  • Pain is adequately controlled with oral medication
  • You can return to sedentary work within one to two weeks
  • You can slowly resume exercise in four to six weeks

The result is of these procedures is tighter, more attractive thighs and buttocks, improved contours and smoother skin. People who have experienced significant weight loss often describe the results as the “icing on the cake.”

Body lift procedures at Parker Center for Plastic Surgery are commonly combined with abdominoplastyliposuction, or male breast reduction.
