Many patients wonder is a lower body lift can be accomplished in one operation. The answer is that, yes, it is preferable to complete a tummy tuck, outer thigh lift, and exterior butt lift in one session. The overall goal for combining all procedures into one operation is to utilize quicker recovery and less general anesthesia. The other advantage is that it reduces the possibility of embolisms, and other associated complications from general anesthesia.
Utilizing a doctor that is nationally board certified and operating in a hospital setting is not just highly encouraged; it is almost mandatory when considering a body lift. Patients need to recover in a private setting with proper nursing and physician attention. During the lower body lift patients will remain alert and awake and will be able to think clearly within one hour after the treatment has been completed.
