In this procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the the abdomen, hips, outer thighs and buttocks, thereby creating a dramatic transformation of the mid and lower body.
A combination of a tummy tuck, thigh lift, and a buttock lift, this is always done under general anesthesia.
As with any ‘lift’ procedure, it involves making an incision in the skin and pulling it upwards to tighten it and trimming the excessive portions.
You must remember that a lower body lift is more about getting rid of sagging, loose skin than removing fat.
The goals are different for each procedure. While both aim to give the patient a slimmer contour, a lower body lift specifically targets loose, sagging skin. Liposuction removes unwanted fat pockets, but doesn’t remove sagging skin. In most lower body lift procedures, Dr. Karishma will add liposuction to remove fat pockets in certain areas.
You will need to be in the hospital for 48 hours post surgery. It will take another 4 to 6weeks for full recovery. You will need to take a month off from work and are advised not to drive for this time as well. It is most important that you wear the compression garment that we give you all day and night during this period. This helps to reduce pain, swelling, and support the newly suspended tissues.
If you have small children, you will need to have someone else take care of them for at least two weeks.

HAL 2nd Stage,
The Lower Body Lift procedure needs to be done with proper planning and preparation.
You will require a complete medical assessment and physical examination.
Dr. Karishma will discuss your goals with you and set proper expectations. She will also clarify all your concerns and set all your doubts at rest. All risks and benefits will be explained in detail.
Please remember that this procedure entails a recovery period of a whole month during which time you will not be able to go to work or perform household chores including looking after small children. Therefore, you will need to make appropriate domestic arrangements to ensure that your recovery is smooth and as per expectations.
The incredible changes made with your lower body lift are permanent. Your scars will fade and your skin will tighten to its new, much slimmer contours. Your tummy will be flatter, and your thighs and buttocks higher and firmer. As you age, your skin will relax somewhat naturally but this is happening all over your body. As almost 3 procedures are being combined into one, recovery may be prolonged but the results are permanent.
