EXPERT Q&A

Q: What does a lower body lift entail? What is the recovery like?

What our experts say:

In a lower body lift, there is an incision completely around the body in the waistband area. It is a combination of a brazillian butt lift, lateral thigh lift and a tummy tuck. The recovery is not as bad as it used to be. We usually have patients up and walking the same day because there is a pain pump involved at the time of operation. Patients are observed overnight, and then go home the next day. No strenuous exercise for six to eight weeks, but they can return to work in two weeks.
