Lower Body Lift
A lower body lift improves the contours of the lower body by eliminating skin and reshaping the buttocks, thighs, hips, and abdomen.
New Orleans cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Khoobehi, help weight loss patients achieve their final transformation goals with this life-changing surgery, which removes sagging skin that hangs due to weight loss.
Dr. Khoobehi is known for his skill and expertise in performing the lower body lift procedure, as well as his commitment to providing personalized care and attention to each patient. He works closely with his patients to understand their goals and develop a customized treatment plan that meets their specific needs. This procedure lifts and reshapes body parts back to a normal, healthy contour. It is a 360-degree treatment reserved for those who are already close to their weight goal.
A lower body lift is sometimes called a belt lipectomy as the incision is made around the belt area surrounding the lower torso. The incision is extended to the buttocks and thighs. Loose, saggy skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin will be lifted and secured by sutures. Liposuction may be used if there’s excess fat. There are also cases when the fat harvested from liposuction is reinstated into the buttocks, known as Fat Transfer, for an instant butt lift and an increase in volume. These procedures may be combined in one session, or they may be staged depending on the patient’s circumstance. Dr. Khoobehi is a trusted and experienced plastic surgeon who is dedicated to helping his patients achieve their desired look through safe and effective procedure.
During/After The Procedure
The lower body lift procedure is performed with general anesthesia at Outpatient Surgical Center. The surgery lasts from 5 to 8 hours depending on the number of procedures performed. Patients who have a lower body lift will experience a slow recovery process. Aside from extensive incisions, the body and skin need adequate time to adjust to their new positions created by the surgery. Patients may need 2-3 weeks before returning to a light routine. It can take up to a full year for the final results of this surgery to appear. Dr. Khoobehi recommends Endermologies (post surgery massage) to be completed at least 5 times after surgery which helps reduce swelling and induce circulation.
The combination of procedures can cost an average of $15,000 to $30,000. The cost fluctuation depends on the patient’s aesthetic goals as the number of procedures performed in one session will cause the cost to fluctuate.

He works closely with his patients to understand their goals and develop a customized treatment plan that meets their specific needs.
