Lower Body Lift
In Berlin

ALSO KNOWN AS BELT LIPECTOMY

Drastic weight loss, weight fluctuations or natural aging often cause the skin to sag in areas below the waist. The lower body lift operation tightens and shapes the buttocks, the back, the thighs, on the outer and inner sides, the hips and the stomach. Sagging skin that is aesthetically bothersome or causes mobility impairment is removed. A lower body lift is appropriate when you have approached your ideal weight, and may also precede or follow an upper body tightening procedure. Each year, thousands of people successfully undergo a lower body lift surgery and are very happy with the results. In our practice in Berlin, too, we successfully treated many patients with the Bodylift

WHEN SHOULD YOU CONSIDER A LOWER BODYLIFT?

● If you had a dramatic weight loss due to surgery or dieting. 

● If you have relatively thin layers of fat under the skin on your hips, thighs, abdomen and buttocks. 

● When overhanging skin in the lower body restricts mobility and / or causes painful friction, as well as to prevent skin rashes or infection. 

● If you are disturbed by loose skin in the lower half of the body and feel impaired in your body awareness and self-confidence.

CONSIDERATIONS ON THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES

ADVANTAGES

● Sagging skin is removed and contoured so you can enjoy the results of your weight loss. 

● You will improve your self-esteem through a more handsome and beautiful body. 

● You will get rid of overhanging skin, which will eliminate the painful friction that can cause rashes and infections.

DISADVANTAGES

● Body toning is a sophisticated surgical procedure combined with a longer recovery time. 

● You will probably spend one to three days in the clinic or need skilled care at home. 

● You have a scar hidden in the bikini area.

THE MOST COMMON REASONS FOR A LOWER BODY LIFT

● They had significant weight loss through bariatric surgery or diet. 

● Pregnancy and / or aging causes sagging skin and cellulite below the waistline. 

● They have loose skin on the hips, thighs and sides, thighs and abdomen. 

● They have significant skin flaccidity, excess skin, ptosis (sagginess) of the buttocks and abdominal tensions.

ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A LOWER BODY LIFT?

After trying hard to get a healthy weight or undergoing a surgical procedure, you still feel frustrated with your appearance when you have loose abdominal muscles and loose and wrinkled skin on the lower abdomen and excess along the thighs and buttocks Skin shows. A lower body tightening leaves a circumferential scar hiding in the bikini area. A lower body lift can dramatically improve sagging skin and / or cellulite below the waistline in the above areas. 

● The fatty layers below your flabby skin are relatively thin. 

● You are ready to accept a thin scar around the waist.

● You are a non-smoker. Smoking slows down the healing process and increases the risk of serious complications during and after surgery. If you smoke, you must stop smoking at least six weeks before surgery. 

● Your weight has remained stable for at least one year and no further weight loss is expected. 

For best results, body shaping should not be performed until two years after the start of a massive weight reduction program. During this time your skin can shrink as much as possible and your nutritional intake will be stabilized and optimized. These factors will help you in your recovery.

● You have a good general health without chronic diseases like diabetes or heart disease. 

People in poor health are not good candidates for body shaping procedures. You need to get a plastic surgery clearance from your family doctor or from doctors who treat you for the medical condition. 

● They pay attention to a healthy diet. Problems like protein deficiency can interfere with healing. 

● You have mental strength. Surgical contouring procedures require patience and stamina.
If you are in good overall health and have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are probably a good candidate for this procedure.

DETAILED PROCEDURE INFO

HOW IS A LOWER BODYLIFT PROCEDURE PERFORMED?

A complete lower body lift has the advantage that the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs can be treated in one operation. Basically, the lower body tuck and abdominoplasty incision extends completely around the lower torso, allowing your surgeon to lift or suspend the thighs, tone the buttocks and perform the traditional tummy tuck. The length and pattern of the incisions depend on how much extra skin is removed and where the skin is. Dr. med. univ. Akhundov will do his best to consider your nickname preferences. Here's a typical scenario of this procedure for performing, though your surgeon uses a variation:

● Dr. med. univ. Akhundov will create a circumferential incision that extends around your torso. This incision allows him to remove and reposition an apron of excess skin and fat under the incision and tighten the tissue. 

● The remaining skin will be pulled up the buttocks and thighs and your skin and underlying tissue will be exposed and tightened. You will be positioned on your stomach or side in this part of the procedure. 

● Once your back and sides have been treated, they will be positioned on the back so the surgeon can treat your front.

At this point, there are two options that will be discussed preoperatively with you. One way is to combine the lower body lift with abdominal contouring, which is also known as tummy tucks (abdominoplasty). The other option is to combine the lower body lift with an inner thigh lift if your abdomen does not require contouring or if you already had an abdominoplasty. 

● Your incisions will be closed in multiple layers via drains to control distention and swelling. Deep support seams within the underlying tissues help to form the reshaped contours. Sutures, skin glue or tapes are used to close the skin incisions.

In this single procedure, incisions are made around the body to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, outer thighs, buttocks, hips, and waist.

WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?

LIPOSUCTION COMBINED WITH LOWER BODY LIFT

You can benefit from liposuction in addition to a lower body lift by getting the best possible contour. Liposuction can smooth and contour contour areas, regardless of the impact of body contouring excisions. In-depth discussion and review are important to determine a comprehensive operational plan.

ABDOMINOPLASTY OR INNER THIGH LIFT

You can combine the lower body lift with abdominal contouring, also known as abdominoplasty, or the lower body lift with inner thigh elevation, if your abdomen does not require contouring or if you already had abdominoplasty.

FURTHER WEIGHT LOSS OR LIPOSUCTION?

Since the lower body is tightened and the skin is subjected to tension, excessive severity of the thighs and buttocks at the time of surgery can prevent a long-lasting effect. In such cases, your doctor may recommend more weight loss before undergoing a lower body lift. If this is not possible, you can use liposuction to lower the mass of the thighs and buttocks before undergoing an excisional body tightening. For an individual consultation on these procedures you can order a free initial consultation appointment with Dr. med. med. univ. Akhundov in our practice in Berlin.

AVERAGE PLACEMENT

The scar on the lower bodylift, which extends around the trunk, is designed to hide in your underwear or bikini. Your doctor may place these higher or lower, according to your personal preferences.

WHICH SCARS WILL REMAIN AFTER A LOWER BODY LIFT?

The Lower Bodylift incision produces a permanent, visible scar around the entire lower trunk. The scar is located deep below the stomach, above the pubic area, and extends toward the hipbone. At the hip bone, the scar runs in a gentle curve towards the top of the buttock fold to accommodate the incision from the other side. The placement of your scar is determined by how you wear your clothes and how your scar can be easily hidden by clothing.

YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT

During the first consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic goals. Your doctor will assess your suitability as a candidate for the Lower Body Tightening Surgery and clarify what a lower body lift can do for you. It will help you to understand the goals and medical history, and to inform you about alternative and additional treatments (related procedures) that may be considered in your medical condition. We are happy to assist you in our practice in Berlin for an initial consultation appointment. If you come to the consultation, you should have everything ready for a discussion of your complete medical history. 

Anamnesis - this includes the following information:

● Do you have any medical findings or drug allergies? Are you treated for all these findings? 

● Medical findings of the past and present? 

● Did you have any previous operations? 

● What medications and vitamin and herbal supplements are you currently taking? 

● What is your current use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs? 

● What are your previous experiences with all non-invasive cosmetic procedures? 

● What result do you expect from the operation? What is your primary motivation to undergo a lower body lift?

DR. MED. UNIV. AKHUNDOV WILL ALSO:

● Ask them to look in a mirror and point out exactly what they want to see improved. 

● Take photos for your medical record and make the possible improvements through computer simulation. 

● Evaluate your state of health, including pre-existing health conditions or risk factors. 

● Evaluate the elasticity of your skin. 

● Explain the options that are suitable for you and recommend a treatment. 

● Discuss with you the likely outcomes, including the risks or potential complications. 

● Discuss with you what type of anesthesia is used.
