Massive weight loss goes beyond shifting fat.

Massive weight loss often leaves individuals with unsightly folds of stretched skin. Thankfully, excess skin can be very effectively reduced by body lift surgery.

Dr Jeremy Hunt’s qualifications, experience and accreditations make him a highly sought-after lower body lift expert. Ideally, this procedure is appropriate as you come to the end of your weight loss journey.

Massive weight loss can leave many people feeling trapped in the sagging skin that surrounds their bottom, thighs, hips and tummy. Thankfully, a lower body lift can tighten all of these areas in a single surgery.

Dr Hunt will work with you to address your unique needs and body shape in the way that best suits your new lifestyle.

He will then put together a tailored weight loss surgery plan to achieve your goals with the minimum down time, maximum safety and most effective results possible.

A lower body lift can be combined with additional surgeries such as an adominoplasty (tummy tuck), upper arm and/or gynaecomastia (chest surgery). Dr Hunt can discuss these options with you during your personal consultation.

Is it for me?


If you’ve lost a dramatic amount of weight and been left with sagging skin in your lower body, you’re an ideal candidate for a lower body lift.

What's involved?


A lower body lift is a complex surgical procedure, so you must ensure you choose only the very best, most experienced plastic surgeon.

Dr Hunt will perform your lower body at your chosen hospital, under a general anesthetic administered by one of his hand-selected anesthetists.

During the procedure, Dr Hunt will make a incisions around your waist, across your lower abdomen and down your thighs. He will trim any excess skin, tighten the muscles and remove all excess fat, before suturing your incisions closed with absorbable sutures.

In many cases, Dr Hunt will perform a tummy tuck at the same time as your lower body lift.

When can I go home?


You will stay in hospital for five to seven nights following 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?


You will need to be off work for around three weeks following your lower body lift surgery.

When can I resume my normal activities?


It will take around three weeks for you to fully recover.

Your movements will be quite limited for the first 10 days after your surgery, and you’ll need to walk carefully. But as your skin gets used to its new position, you’ll regain your range of movement.

When will I see the end result?


The effects of your lower body lift will be immediate, although it may take up to two months to appreciate then full benefits.

You will have some scarring on your abdomen and thighs, and it will take at least a year for the scars to mature and fade so that they are pale and discreet. Dr Hunt will explain where your scars will be before your surgery. He will do his very best to ensure they are not visible in your swimsuit or underwear.
