A lower body lift is a plastic surgical procedure carried out by individuals to reshape their abdomen, hips, buttocks and thighs. The procedure is carried out to get rid of the loose and sagging skin developed below the waist area due to significant weight loss, pregnancy, aging or heredity. The lower weight loss surgery is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the world as most of the people consider significant weight loss occurs in areas like hips, buttocks and thighs leaving large folds and sags of skin leading to discomfort and chafing. A lower body lift not only helps get rid of the sagging skin but also is performed to lift the lower body parts and flatten contours.

A lower body lift surgery is carried out to treat the abdomen, buttocks and thighs, all in one procedure. A lower body lift surgery requires the surgeon to make incision around the waist line across the lower abdomen to the inner thighs of the patient. The pattern and length of the incisions so made would depend upon the amount of excess skin to be removed, the expertise of the surgeon and the specific needs of the patient. The surgeon would then through the incisions remove the excess tissues and fat prior to trimming the sagging skin. The incisions are then sutured and covered with bandages and the incisions are so placed by the surgeon that they can be hidden by clothing. 

A lower body lift surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia and the entire procedure is carried out as an outpatient surgery but the patient might be required to stay in the hospital for a day or two depending upon the size of the surgery and recovery speed of the patient. The patient needs to be wearing compression garments and bandages following the surgery and may have attached to them some surgical drains for a few days. There can be some swelling in the initial weeks post-surgery and the scars fade away with time. The results of a lower body lift surgery are usually permanent in nature but any significant weight loss may alter the results of the procedure.
