Lower Body Lift FAQs

Lower body lift surgery is usually performed to address loose skin that develops as a result of extreme weight loss, pregnancy or advanced aging. The goal of this procedure is to restore a more natural appearance to the body. 

What is lower body lift surgery? 

Also known as a belt lipectomy, a lower body lift combines a thigh lift with a tummy tuck. Patients who’ve recently lost a lot of weight may choose to have this procedure done to remove excess skin. A lower body lift isn’t performed to remove excess fat from the body. 

What are the benefits of a thigh lift surgery?

A thigh lift can reduce excess skin and fat around either the inner or outer thighs. It improves the natural contours of the body while eliminating unwanted tissue. You should also discuss any potential risks with your Mercy surgeon when talking about the benefits.
