Many patients wonder if a lower body lift can be accomplished in one operation. The answer is, yes, it is actually 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.*
