What is a lower body lift? January 24, 2023 After going through a major weight loss, many patients come in complaining about the excess skin left behind. While home remedies, topical creams, and non-surgical treatments may help to an extent, large amounts of loose skin requires a more invasive, but permanent technique. Sagging or loose skin in the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs can be removed with a lower body lift. This powerful body contouring procedure is used by board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Cara Downey and Dr. Jamal Bullocks, to give the lower body the younger look and feel that patients deserve after accomplishing their major weight loss.
