Patients in Orange County learn about lower body fat removal surgery

Extra fat deposits around the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks can make people feel self-conscious. Although liposuction is a less invasive surgical procedure, lower body fat removal surgery (lower body lift) completely re-sculptures the lower part of the body. The long-lasting results often help patients feel more confident. Patients can find lower body lift surgery in the gentle hands of Dr. Thuan Nguyen at The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery in Orange County.

A lower body lift combines several surgical procedures to achieve optimal results. A tummy tuck, buttocks lift, and thigh lift are included with the goal of remodeling the abdomen, upper thighs, hips, and buttocks. A lower body lift usually starts with the tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). During this stage of the procedure, Dr. Nguyen will make a horizontal incision at the lower section of the abdomen. He will tighten the underlying muscles of the abdominal wall and remove extra fat and skin. This procedure is followed by the buttocks lift and thigh lift. Often, liposuction is used to smooth the transition between the reworked areas and to provide a more natural look.

Patients who have experienced rapid weight loss may be ideal candidates for lower body lift surgery. Rapid weight loss often results in extra skin around the midsection that can only be removed surgically. In some cases, lower body lift surgery is performed as part of a major body weight reduction plan in obese patients. Women who want to restore their pre-pregnancy figures also seek lower body lift surgery. We offer the "Mommy makeover," which can include the lower body lift as well as another procedure such as a breast lift.

We encourage patients to schedule a consultation if they want to explore lower body lift surgery. Patients would need to wait at least one year after gastric restriction surgery. It is critical that a stable body weight has been maintained for at least six months before the procedure. Women who plan to have more children are typically advised to postpone surgery until after childbirth. Dr. Nguyen will review medical history and thoroughly examine the areas the patients want treated before determining if lower body lift surgery is right for them.
