While a tummy tuck tightens and smoothes the abomen, a lower body lift removes excess hanging skin from the abdomen, waist, hips, buttock and thighs, usually after substantial weight loss.
A lower body lift actually combines an abdominoplasty with a thigh lift and a buttock lift, improving the appearance of the entire body in a band around the waist.
The best candidates for a lower body lift are people with sagging skin on the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks and thighs. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable, and have realistic expectations before considering a lower body lift.
