Post Bariatric Procedure (LOWER BODY LIFT)
Lower body lift is performed using intravenous sedation combined with local anesthesia while patients remain sleep during the procedure. Lower body lifts are surgical procedures and they require extensive incisions. Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed, as well as surgical judgment. One common technique of complete lower body lift uses incisions similar to a bikini pattern to tighten the abdomen, groin, waist, thigh and buttock in one procedure. An incision around the body removes an apron of excess skin and fat and repositions and tightens tissues.Surgical body lifts may require liposuction to achieve an improved contour.
Jot something down
It’s important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion or motion during the time of healing. Dr. Ricardo Vega will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.
