With massive weight loss
Lower body lift - when to have surgery after major weight loss
- I am glad you are losing weight - keep up the good work.
- Your surgeon should not be done until you reach your goal weight and stay at that weight for 3 - 6 months.
- Your body will change more as you lose weight -
- These are big operations.
- Results are better and surgery safer if you wait until the weight loss is behind you.
- Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Lower Body Lift
It will be mandatory for you to reach a BMI below 30 in order to be SAFE during and after surgery.
Be encouraged!! You have done the most important decision in life and now will be the time to feel wonderful.

Best of luck to you.
Recommend dedicated procedures
1. A full tummy tuck.
2. A mons lift.
3. A strong lateral thigh lift.
4. A buttock lift.
5. Auto augmentation of the buttocks and hips. The hip flap is designed to help increase or maintain your hip / waist ratio.
if you reach your goal weight I suspect that you may well want an arm lift, thigh lift and breast lift. If so these can all be done at 2 seperate surgical sessions.
