This weight loss patient had mainly loose skin on the sides and lower back. However, you can see that the lower body lift improved the skin of the buttocks and thighs. She no longer has loose skin and cellulite due to the aggressive skin resection by Dr. Kenneth Hughes. In addition, please notice that the buttocks and hips are not flatter. She does not look boxier. She looks smoother and with more curves. There was no fat transfer for this procedure. Dr. Hughes utilizes different techniques to provide for this shapelier appearance. Not all body lift surgeons are the same and the techniques utilized are not the same.
