Lower Body Lift
A lower body lift can completely change the appearance and feel of your lower torso. By combining a belt lipectomy, buttocks lift, outer thigh lift, and tummy tuck, our doctors will tighten the skin, remove and sculpt any excess fat, and sometimes even create fuller buttocks.
Our doctors at Florida Plastic Surgery Group specialize in body contouring procedures for patients that have lost a significant amount of weight from either diet and exercise or gastric bypass / banding surgery. A lower body lift can achieve dramatic cosmetic improvements for these patients, giving you a flatter tummy, more contour in your thighs, and a more shapely buttock and lower back area.
