What to Expect

Before, During, and After Your Lower Body Lift in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation.

If you're a patient in Houston lower body lift could be a great option for you. First, you’ll meet with a physician for a one-on-one consultation. We take the time to get to know you—your goals, medical history, body type, and more.

2. Review Your Treatment Plan.

Dr. Downey and Dr. Bullocks collaborate on every patient case to best advise you on the best way to achieve the most natural, effective results for your unique body.

3. Make Your Decision.

At Heights Plastic Surgery, our mission is to give you the information you need to decide what will work best for your desires, timeline, and budget. After we make recommendations, we give you the space and time to make your own decision.

4. Schedule Your Lower Body Lift.

We will schedule your lower body lift—an outpatient procedure performed in our private, on-site surgery center—for a day and time that works best for you. You'll want to factor in about 4 weeks of downtime from everyday activities and work after your procedure.

5. Arrive for Surgery.

We will provide you with all of the ways you can best prepare for your lower body lift well in advance of your surgery in Houston. When you arrive, we will escort you to our state-of-the-art surgical suite and review our process in detail once more.

6. Getting Your Lower Body Lift.

Your highly skilled surgeon will be in the operating room from start to finish, executing every detail of your agreed-upon plan for your lower body lift. Make sure you plan to have a plan for getting home after your procedure, as you will not be able to drive yourself.

7. Follow Up.

Following your lower body lift Houston plastic surgeons at Heights Plastic Surgery will also book you for follow-up visits to meet with your surgeon to monitor your recovery. This important step ensures you are healing properly, safely, and efficiently.
