Body Contouring After Weight Loss
Although losing weight is often rewarding, it can unfortunately result in sagging skin. After weight loss in Louisiana, many people who want to remove the extra skin that hangs around the body choose to have a lower body lift.
Gravity and aging can also contribute to sagging skin. A lower body lift tightens the appearance of skin by removing excess skin and pulling the remaining skin closer together for a more toned, healthy look.

While body contouring surgery isn't about weight loss, it can be a great way to target certain "trouble spots" when you drop the extra pounds. Quickly calculate your body mass index (BMI) here.
Who Needs It
Those who are overweight or have lost a significant amount of weight are the most likely candidates for lower body lift plastic surgery in Louisiana. This procedure can benefit those with a significant amount of excess skin hanging from their legs and buttocks.
During your initial consultation with one of our plastic surgeons, you will weigh your options and decide if a lower body lift would be a beneficial procedure for you.
During the operation, excess fat and skin is removed to smooth out the contour of the lower body area. An incision will be made all the way around the stomach and back. The scar from this incision should not be noticeable in most swimsuits. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia.
After a lower body lift, patients are usually much more comfortable wearing clothes and feel more confident about themselves as their skin is smoother and tighter following the surgery.
Our surgeons and staff look forward to helping you understand all your cosmetic options. Request a consultation at The Wall Center or call our office at (888) 791-1053 . Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas residents trust our practice to help achieve their cosmetic surgery goals.
