What is a Lower Body Lift?

A lower body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is a transformative surgical procedure designed to enhance the appearance and contour of the lower body. The procedure is popular among individuals who have undergone significant weight loss, leading to loose, sagging skin, and those looking to rejuvenate their lower body appearance. It involves removing excess skin and fat, tightening underlying tissues, and repositioning the remaining skin to create a more toned and smoother lower body profile.

Lower Body lift: Consultation, Procedure, Recovery


The first step in your lower body lift journey is a consultation with Dr. Lukavsky. You'll discuss your goals, medical history, and expectations during this appointment. He will evaluate your suitability for the procedure and create a personalized plan to help you achieve naturally beautiful contours.


A lower body lift procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia. It involves the removal of excess skin and fat, along with the tightening of underlying muscles and tissues. The remaining skin is repositioned to achieve a more toned and youthful appearance.


After the surgery, expect a period of healing and recovery. There will be some discomfort and swelling initially, but these subside over time. Following Dr. Lukavsky's post-operative instructions ensures a smooth and safe recovery process. ​​These instructions may include:

  • Taking prescribed medications as directed to manage pain and prevent infection
  • Wearing compression garments to reduce swelling and support the healing process
  • Avoiding strenuous activities, including heavy lifting, for a certain period after surgery
  • Following a healthy diet and staying hydrated to promote healing
  • Attending follow-up appointments with Dr. Lukavsky to monitor progress and address any concerns
