Correct the ravages of time and excessive weight loss
Time, gravity genetics and weight fluctuations can cause sagging abdominal skin and muscle, and loose or wrinkled skin and cellulite along thighs and buttocks. The body lift is a powerful rejuvenating procedure that corrects these ravages of time and results in a pleasing balance between torso and thighs. Body lifts can make an immense difference in patients who have had excessive weight loss.
To achieve a youthful, balanced torso, Dr. O'Daniel typically combines a tummy tuck, thigh lift and buttock lift into this single procedure, which tightens abdominal muscles, and removes excess skin from abdomen, thighs and buttocks. He also may incorporate liposuction for enhanced body sculpting. Dr. O'Daniel places his incision for greatest concealment - very low on the abdomen, higher on the thighs to preserve the aesthetic appeal of the thigh, and along the lower back, just above the buttocks. The scar is hidden by most underwear and bikini swimwear.
This procedure may be done either as in inpatient or outpatient, depending on the extent of the surgery, and initial recovery is 10-14 days.
