Lower Body Lift Philadelphia
Despite an active lifestyle and healthy diet it is not uncommon for people to experience loose, sagging in the buttock, thighs, abdomen and throughout the lower body region. Often, the natural aging process, weight loss, and genetics can cause skin to lose elasticity and lead to sagging skin. Dr. Scott D. Chapin can drastically enhance the contour of the lower body that does not respond to diet and exercise with a lower body lift.
Lower Body Lift Can:
- Remove loose, sagging skin throughout the thighs, buttock and abdominal regions
- Eliminate stubborn fat pockets throughout the lower body region
- Tighten abdominal muscle wall for a firmer and rejuvenated appearance
- Improve the overall contour of the lower body
Our Customized Approach
Dr. Chapin is an expert in a variety of body contouring procedures that eliminate sagging excess skin. Typically, a lower body lift includes an abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, as well as a thigh and buttocks lift. Excess skin and fat are eliminated from the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks area to restore tighter, firmer, and more youthful appearance to the lower body. Generally, two or more body contouring procedures are performed in conjunction with each other to achieve optimal results. Dr. Chapin can also simultaneously perform liposuction that can help patients achieve the figure they always imagined.
Surgical body lift procedures require an incision in the targeted areas. However, Dr. Chapin strategically places the incision in discrete locations that are easily concealed by clothing or the body’s natural shape. Excess skin, fat and tissue are removed from the targeted areas to restore a flatter, tighter figure. Next, liposuction will be performed if it has been elected by the patient to eliminate any stubborn fat deposits. Dr. Chapin will repair any underlying muscle wall laxity by utilizing internal sutures. The remaining skin is then pulled taut and realigned as needed before closing the incisions with dissolving sutures and applying the final dressings.
Day of Your Procedure
Your procedure will be performed under general anesthesia at a Bucks County or Montgomery County AAA Certified Facility. On the day of your procedure, Dr. Chapin and his highly trained team will meet with you to review all details and answer any questions before surgery. The duration of the lower body lift surgery is typically four to five hours. However, the time but can vary based on the complexity of each situation and which procedures have been elected to be included in the lower body lift. You will receive exceptional and comprehensive care following your procedure to ensure your comfort.
Lower Body Lift Recovery
It is common for patients to experience swelling, bruising, tenderness, discomfort or pain in the treated areas. Ice packs and oral pain medication will help relieve these symptoms during the initial recovery period and any discomfort will taper during the healing process. Individuals undergoing the procedure should plan to take about two weeks off from work or their daily routine. During this time, it is crucial to avoid any strenuous activity and to get plenty of rest. Dr. Chapin will provide complete preoperative and postoperative care instructions. He will monitor and advise when patients can gradually resume their daily activities including exercise. Out of town patients may typically fly on an airplane within seven to ten days of the procedure.
