Mini abdominoplasty is appropriate for people with redundant lower abdominal skin but acceptable skin above the belly button. Mini abdominoplasty is similar to abdominoplasty except a shorter incision is made and the skin is only lifted to the navel, which does not have to be moved (although it may be pulled into a different shape as skin is stretched).
Lower Body Lift
The lower body lift is performed to tighten and elevate sagging thighs and buttocks. It is usually performed for patients who have lost significant amounts of weight as a result of diet, exercise, weight loss surgery or who have loose, elastic skin for other reasons. The procedure is often combined with others such as breast lifts, facelifts, abdominoplasties and arm lifts to retain a proper body proportion.
A thigh lift is performed to remove excess skin and fat from the inner and/ or outer thighs. Candidates typically have loose, inelastic skin after extreme weight loss due to diet, exercise or weight loss surgery. Because of this, the procedure is often combined with others such as breast lifts, facelifts, abdominoplasties and arm lifts to achieve an attractive body proportion.
