By lifting the thighs and buttocks with the removal a segment of skin, the procedure will allow for you to obtain a more natural look again.
Once you have undergone the surgery the remaining scar lies across the lower abdomen and just above the buttocks on the back. The major benefits to our patients are tighter buttocks, diminishing or completely removing thigh cellulite and removal of back rolls or excess back skin after losing excessive weight. A simple way to test for the result of such a procedure is to pinch the skin just above the hips on both sides while looking in the mirror.
Excess tissue is removed from two oval shaped incisions made at the top of the thigh or buttock and the skin is lifted and held to give the desired effect of firm thighs and buttocks. This can often be combined with liposuction for further body sculpting however this will increase the amount of time in surgery.
