Overview: Lower Body Lift
Seattle cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Craig Jonov, has reshaped the bodies of countless men and women as they complete their weight loss transformation. A lower body lift (also known as a body lift 360) is designed for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, yet still battle loose and excess skin on the hips, buttock, flanks and abdomen. To create a beautiful new figure, Dr. Jonov uses a circumferential excision that extends around the body along the lower hip. During this process, he removes excess skin and then pulls the lower body up and tightens the underlying tissues, securing the opening with sutures. The result is a smooth and toned appearance that diminishes the look of unsightly hanging skin, wrinkling and cellulite. For many weight loss patients, this serves as a final step in their weight lost journey.
