Before your lower body lift surgery, there are a few things you’ll need to avoid to ensure a successful surgery. Dr. Bell will advise that you follow certain preparations in the weeks leading up to your procedure date:

  • Avoid sun damage two weeks before surgery. This can be achieved by wearing sunscreen.

How is Lower Body Lift Surgery Performed?

Before your surgery, the area of planned excision and lift is marked out. Then, local anesthetic or IV sedation is administered to ensure that the procedure is completely painless. General anesthesia might be used if the patient is combining the lower body lift with liposuction or another procedure.

During the procedure, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will make a hidden incision above the groin and pubic hair so that any scarring will not be visible following the procedure. Then, the physicians will lift the abdominal skin and trim unwanted tissue before eventually pulling the skin up and suturing the incision.

Dr. Bell and the team at Toronto Plastic Surgeons use state-of-the-art equipment and technologies during the procedure. With our expertise, you can feel confident you’ll have minimal scarring and achieve next-level results.

How Long Does it Take to Perform a Lower Body Lift?

Benefits of a Lower Body Lift

Confidence Boost

A lower body lift helps tighten weak abdominal muscles and eliminate loose skin. After the procedure, you’ll notice your clothes fit better and you have a leaner, more sculpted appearance.

Body Lift Risks

There is a small chance of potential complications with a body lift surgery. However, significant complications are uncommon. Some risks include:

  • Infections: Even though infections are rare, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons take every precaution to ensure the procedure is a smooth, seamless experience.
  • Adverse Anesthesia Effects: In some cases, the anesthesia used in the surgery can harm the patient. For this reason, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons carefully review the medical history of every patient who walks through their doors.
  • Unexpected Scarring: The surgeons take special care to conceal the scar within the pubic hair region. However, the procedure may result in ruptures along an incision. In such cases, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons offer complimentary scar-fading treatments to correct any unexpected scarring.
  • Asymmetry: Some patients may experience unmatched proportions immediately following the surgery. However, these proportions generally correct themselves after the swelling subsides.

Will I Have Scars After a Lower Body Lift?

A lower body lift procedure does involve small incisions above the groin and pubic hair area. Dr Bell and the Toronto Plastic Surgery team strive to make the scarring as minimal and unnoticeable as possible. If there is unexpected scarring after the procedure, we offer complimentary scar-fading treatments to all of our patients.

Week 2: Mild discomfort, bruising, and swelling should subside completely. Dr. Bell will provide follow-up appointments as necessary to ensure optimal healing and results.

Week 6: Patients will be able to resume strenuous physical activity, and the results of the procedure will become apparent.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Body Lift?

While light activities can be resumed within a day or two, it usually takes several weeks for patients to fully recover from a body lift procedure.

Lower Body Lift FAQ

How painful is it to get a Lower Body Lift?

Due to the anesthesia administered during the procedure, the patient will not feel any pain during the surgery. While it is normal to experience some swelling and discomfort after the surgery, there will be no extreme or long-term pain. In fact, this discomfort can be easily controlled with oral medication prescribed by the Toronto Plastic Surgeons.

How long will the results last?

If the patient maintains a healthy diet and proper exercise routines, the results of a lower body lift procedure will be able to last for several years. However, as the skin ages, it loses its elasticity, causing the abdominal area to sag once again. For this reason, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons offers several body contouring procedures to ensure optimal results that combat the aging process.

How can Abdominal Muscle Repair be performed at the same time?

Men who have lost a lot of weight and have loose abdominal skin can also develop rectus separation and weakness. The rectus abdominis muscle can be repaired and brought together tightly in the midline during a lower body lift/belt lift surgery. Post-operatively, all patients are offered EMsculpt and Evolve Tone treatments to enhance their muscle toning non-surgically.
