If you want to get plastic surgery on your lower body, you are joining thousands of other people who feel the same way. The lower body area, including your abdomen, buttocks and thighs, can cause a lot of stubborn fat that is difficult to remove with exercise. If you have been dieting and exercising and it has yet to provide you with the results you hope for, consider the following procedures.

Lower Body Lift

Your first option is called the lower body lift. This actually includes much of your lower body and tightens loose skin around your hips, thighs, inner and outer thighs, and buttocks. This is ideal for people who have lost quite a bit of weight recently and now need to tighten the loose, sagging skin in these areas. Surgeons try to hide the incisions as much as possible by placing them around the hips and sometimes on the front of the thighs. The loose skin and fat tissue is removed during the procedure, which then smoothes the lower body by allowing remaining tissue to stretch. It takes about four weeks to heal form the lower body lift.


Your next option of course is liposuction. The lower body, including hips, buttocks and thighs are a very common area to get liposuction. There is different types of liposuction, including traditional and laser liposuction, both of which have their pros and cons. How much fatty tissue you have to remove makes a big difference in what liposuction you can ask from by your plastic surgeon.

Tummy Tuck

If you have lost a lot of weight or have some loose skin and fat on your tummy from your pregnancy, you may want to get a tummy tuck. This is a very common procedure that tightens the loose, sagging skin on your abdomen and around your hips. It is a routine procedure done outpatient, and provides a recovery time of about a month.

Buttocks Augmentation

For your buttocks, you have several options, including liposuction, the body lift and augmentation or implants. Whether you are unhappy with the size, fullness or shape of your buttocks, you can get augmentation that helps provide you with a buttocks you can be more happy with.

These lower body plastic surgery options are great if you just are not happy with your body and want a little fat, fat removed or loose skin tightened.
