After a major weight loss, you may be faced with loose, sagging skin in your outer thigh region, back and buttocks. It’s also possible that age has caused sagging of the skin, but no matter the reason, you deserve to look as young and healthy as you feel. A lower body lift with Dr. Scott Haydon and the skilled team at Austin Plastic Surgery Institute & Skin Care Clinic can dramatically tighten loose skin and create a trim, contoured body.
Lower body lift surgery tightens and sculpts the buttocks, back of the thighs, outer thighs, inner thighs, hips, and abdomen. Dr. Haydon skillfully removes excess skin that may be causing mobility restrictions or is aesthetically displeasing.
A lower body lift procedure is a major surgery. During your initial consultation with Dr. Haydon, he’ll explain where the incisions will be placed, how the skin with be removed or tightened, and the results you can expect.
It’s common to experience pain in your thighs or buttocks for the first few days following surgery. Compressive wraps are placed on your legs and you’re typically able to be up and moving around within a week. Physical activity is put on hold for about a month following the procedure. While the surgery will leave a scar, Dr. Haydon takes every precaution to make incisions is natural folds of the body and in areas that can be concealed with undergarments. The scar will fade until it’s barely visible, reaching complete healing around 12 to 18 months.
Dr. Wilder and his staff are the best. I was very nervous going into surgery. Dr Wilder and his staff helped me through it with patience, professionalism and a good deal of empathy. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results of my surgery or my choice of a surgeon. Highest marks to Dr. Wilder and his wonderful staff!
Patients can expect a lower body lift procedure to increase the quality of life, especially when it comes to mobility and being physically active. Excess skin can be a hindrance to trying new things, exploring different activities, or wearing the clothes you like. Dr. Haydon is highly skilled in not only tightening the skin, but also pairing the lower body lift with a procedure that will complement the results.
Many patients opt to have a lower body lift performed before or after a breast augmentation or breast lift to have a proportioned appearance and feel more confident with a newly contoured body.
