A lower body lift is a body contouring procedure that removes excess skin and fat to reshape and lift certain areas of the body affected by weight loss or pregnancy. The surgery targets the mid and the lower body, including the abdomen, buttocks, lower back, flanks, and upper thighs. Depending on how much skin removal is required, a circumferential 360 incision may be made, which allows the greatest amount of skin excision and lift. This is major surgery and can redefine a patient's lower body. Pasadena, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Husam Elias has special training in skin removal surgeries. In many cases, this surgery at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery allows patients to not only reach their weight loss goals but to complete their overall transformation with a tighter figure that looks healthy and normal.

During the procedure, Dr. Elias makes an incision around the torso from front to back. Depending on your needs, additional incisions may be necessary under the crease of the buttocks and/or in the groin area. He then removes loose skin, tightens muscles in some cases, and uses liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue. For this part of the procedure, a small tube called a cannula is inserted into an incision and attached to a suction device, which removes precise amounts of fat. This process also improves cellulite. The incisions are then sutured and bandaged, and you are given a compression garment to wear for a period of time.

Drains are usually inserted into incisions to capture post-surgical fluids. We will show you how to care for them, and they will be removed in a few days. The sutures are removed in 1 – 2 weeks. For the majority of the bruising and swelling to subside, however, recovery takes several weeks. The swelling will resolve last, but the compression garments will keep swelling to a minimum. It's normal to experience soreness, bruising, tightness, numbness, itching, and swelling after surgery. We will give you a prescription for pain medication and an antibiotic.

Since strenuous activity can increase blood pressure, it's very important to avoid heavy exercise for at least six weeks. However, being completely inactive is one of the worst things you can do after a procedure. Dr. Elias will let you know when you can begin to take regular walks. You should be able to resume light exercise after about six weeks. Scars will become less noticeable after enough time has passed for them to mature. Rest assured that we will give you detailed instructions for your recovery, and we will be available to answer your questions and monitor your progress during follow-up examinations.

I was recommend by a friend who got her breast and BBL done by Dr. Elias and I’m so glad I found him! Dr. Elias did such an amazing job with my lip fillers giving me natural results I wanted. I was debating getting them done for over a year because it was hard to find a trusting doctor and a great price. From the moment I walked through the door the staff was very kind and did not feel pressure at all to make any decisions. They took their time explaining to me my different options and made sure all my questions were answered. But not only is he the best cosmetic surgeon, he’s an oral surgeon as well which is perfect because my wisdom teeth need to be removed! We all want the natural results and if your looking for a Doctor who can do that for you, look no further Dr. Elias is the one!

My first procedure was Facetite with Dr. Elias. I was able to do the procedure awake on a Friday & was back to work on Monday! I was still swollen but not in pain at all. It’s a minimum invasive procedure to tighten the skin & gets rid of the fat. The staff was really friendly and was able to answer all my questions. I’ve been back many more times for Botox & fillers. Dr. Elias is such a perfectionist and that is exactly what I’m looking for in a Cosmetic Surgeon!
