A Lower Body Lift can help contour your body


A Lower Body Lift can help contour your body

Massive weight loss can leave many people feeling trapped in the sagging skin that surrounds their bottom, thighs, hips and tummy. Thankfully, a male lower body lift can tighten all of these areas in a single surgery.

Dr Hunt will work with you to address your unique needs and body shape in the way that suits your new lifestyle.

He will then put together a tailored weight loss surgery plan to achieve your goals with the minimum down time, maximum safety and most effective results possible.

A lower body lift can be combined with additional surgeries such as an adominoplasty (tummy tuck), upper arm and/or gynaecomastia (chest surgery). Dr Hunt can discuss these options with you during your personal consultation.


Recovery after Male Lower Body Lift Surgery

The recovery period after male lower body lift surgery can take up to two weeks for most patients. During this time, make sure to take the analgesic medication to alleviate the potential pain and discomfort.

It is best to avoid strenuous physical activities during the first two weeks after male lower body lift surgery and make sure to take time off from work to allow your body to heal. Here are more recommendations for the recovery period after male lower body lift surgery:

  • Avoid ample body movements

What's involved in a Lower Body Lift for Men?


A male lower body lift is a complex surgical procedure, so you must ensure you choose only the very best, most experienced plastic surgeon.

Dr Hunt will perform your lower body at your chosen hospital, under a general anesthetic administered by one of his hand-selected anesthetists.

During the procedure, Dr Hunt will make a incisions around your waist, across your lower abdomen and down your thighs. He will trim any excess skin, tighten the muscles and remove all excess fat, before suturing your incisions closed with absorbable sutures.

In many cases, Dr Hunt will perform a tummy tuck at the same time as your lower body lift.

When can I go home after a Body lift for Men?


You will stay in hospital for five to seven nights following surgery. Once you are comfortable and able to get to and from a bathroom, you will be able to go home. Once home, you should limit your movements to around the house for a week or so.

The effects of your lower body lift will be almost immediate, although it may take up to two months to appreciate then full benefits.

You will have some scarring on your abdomen and thighs, and it will take at least a year for the scars to mature and fade so that they are pale and discreet. Dr Hunt will explain where your scars will be before your surgery. He will do his very best to ensure they are not visible in your swimsuit or underwear.
