Dramatic weight loss, weight fluctuation or natural aging frequently results in sagging skin in areas below the waistline and are just a few reasons patients opt to have a lower body lift, or a belt lipectomy. A complete lower body lift has the advantage of treating the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs in one procedure and is often a part of a mommy makeover.
A lower body lift is appropriate if you are near your ideal weight and may precede or follow an upper body lift procedure. The body lift is basically a combination of a tummy tuck and a butt lift. Depending on your circumstances, the tummy tuck surgery and buttock lift procedure may need to be performed separately. Dr. Murtagh will evaluate your goals and desires at your consultation and discuss the risks, benefits and alternative treatments. We have offices that serve Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, Naples, Marco Island and surrounding areas in South Florida.
