In addition to VASER® Lipoplasty and all forms of the tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Mark Jewell offers lower body lift procedures in Eugene, Oregon. These are an extensive form of body contouring designed to lift and tighten the lower body on both the front and back side of individuals who have lost large amounts of weight through diet and weight loss surgery. These procedures typically involve a 1- or 2-day hospital stay. Patients seeking lower body lifts are advised that they must be in good health and have normal body metabolic chemistry values in order to be considered for this extensive procedure by Dr. Jewell.
Am I a good candidate for a lower body lift?
The best candidate for a body lift has maintained a stable weight for a minimum of three months – preferably six months to a year – and should be participating in a healthy exercise and dietary program. Candidates who have had gastric bypass, Lap-Band or other gastric restrictive procedures should wait at least one year after weight loss surgery so that the common health problems associated with obesity have had time to improve.
What areas will be improved with this surgery?
A lower body lift (belt lipectomy) involves the tummy, the thighs, buttocks and back.
Will my results be long lasting?
The overall results are long lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness.
