Lower Body Lift Before and After Images
A lower body lift adresses loose skin in the buttocks, hips and thighs, often resulting from large weight loss.
Dr Jeremy Hunt has performed a large number of lower body lifts throughout his 20-year career.
Lower body lift surgery may be performed on its own, or combined with other surgeries such as an adominoplasty (tummy tuck), upper arm (brachioplasty) or breast lift mastopexy. You can see a before and after gallery of combined surgeries here.
The outcomes shown are only relevant for this patient and do not necessarily reflect the results other patients may experience, as results may vary due to many factors including the individual’s genetics, diet and exercise.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Lower Body Lift Surgery FAQs – Your Questions Answered About Lower Body Lift
When can I go home after LBL surgery?
You will stay in the hospital for five to seven nights following body lift surgery. Once you are comfortable and able to get to and from a bathroom, you will be able to go home. Once home, you should limit your movements to around the house for a week or so.
Will I have to return for post-operative care?
You’ll see Dr Hunt weekly for the first month after your surgery. As you progress, the time between visits will become longer.
How long will I be off work after Lower Body lift?
You will need to be off work for around three weeks following your lower body lift surgery.
When should I have a Lower Body Lift?
It’s important to note that a lower body lift should be performed when you are at your ideal body weight. Weight gain will stretch skin that has been tightened, undoing lower body lift improvements and weight loss will loosen and sag the newly tightened areas of skin. In order to remove excess skin, tighten muscle and remove any excess fat, I will make incisions across your waist and lower abdomen. A tummy tuck/abdominoplasty may also be performed at the same time.
Scarring will fade over time and where possible, incisions are made in areas not visible when in your swimsuit or underwear.
