Body LiftHave you lost a great deal of weight and have loose skin that you would like gone for good? A body lift with Dr. Kenneth Hughes in Los Angeles may be the answer to your concerns.  Maybe you just have some loose skin you would like removed due to aging or a problematic surgery in the past.  Dr. Hughes can address any or all of these concerns.   Frequently, the lower body lift can be combined with arm lifts, thigh lifts, breast lifts, and bra line back lifts.

A lower body lift most commonly refers to recontouring the lower body by addressing loose skin and contours of the abdomen, lower back, sides, outer thighs and buttocks.   Most commonly a patient may need a tummy tuck to take care of the skin and abdominal wall laxity in the front of the body.  However, some patients may have loose skin on the back, buttocks, or lateral (outer) thighs as well. This is referred to as a posterior lower body lift. A tummy tuck and a posterior lower body lift can be performed at the same time and is referred to as a circumferential lower body lift, lower body lift or belt lipectomy.  The incision goes around the waist 360 degrees and helps tighten the abdomen, sides, back, outer thighs, and buttocks.  These results can be very dramatic.

The circumferential lower body lift can be performed in one surgical setting. This will allow for a flat abdomen and an improved lower back. At the same time, the buttock can be lifted and the lateral(outer) thighs can be improved.

Dr. Hughes performs the body lift and all other body contouring procedures including liposuction, arm lift, thigh lift, breast lift, upper back lift (or bra line back lift), and Brazilian buttlift. Dr. Hughes can provide for total body transformation like no other, because he offers every conceivable approach to body contouring and he is a master of all techniques.

If you truly want the best overall shape, Dr. Hughes can achieve your best shape through multiple surgical offerings.  Patients who typically undergo removal of this skin can be left looking boxy or dumpy or square or straight up and down.  Dr. Hughes can create a much more favorable physique and silhouette by not only the manner in which he removes skin but also in the manner he contours the body with fat resection, liposuction, and fat grafting techniques as well as offering all types of implant options for volume restoration (including buttock or gluteal implants).

Frequent Questions about Body Lifts:

I had a tummy tuck, but I now have looseness on the sides and back. Is the posterior lower body lift for me?

This is probably a very reasonable option. Sometimes, the buttocks is deflated as well after massive weight loss and Dr. Hughes can transfer fat to the buttocks and hips to help overall body contours tremendously.

How Much Can be Done at Once? How Many Operations Can Be Performed at Once?

Dr. Hughes offers the full gamut of body contouring procedures. Depending upon your overall medical healthy and BMI (or body mass index) you may be able to have several procedures done at once. Safety is of utmost importance, and Dr. Hughes never operates for more than 6 hours under general anesthesia. Shorter anesthesia times are associated with fewer anesthetic and postoperative complications.

Share Your Opinion Of Dr. Kenneth B. Hughes

After searching for months for the perfect Dr, I came across Dr Hughes. He's so kind and honest! He responds to all my emails within a short period of time. (I send him a lot of questions, trust me) I'm 5'3 about 115. Pretty petite frame but he was able to put 960 cc into each cheek and also added some fat into my hips. Which I think is ammmmazing. I didn't think I had that much fat for him to transfer. With the aggressive lipo he is known for I had very little bruising and I felt fine 3 days post op! I'm so in love with my new butt and tiny waist, it's perfect!
