Excess skin around the lower tummy is a common problem, especially after weight loss and pregnancy. This creates a fold in the front of the tummy which hangs over and looks unsightly and it can be uncomfortable because of sweating or a rash beneath the fold. In some patients, the loose fold can extend all around the lower body and lead to saggy thighs, buttocks and back folds.
Exercise can tone the muscles to an extent, but it will not help the loose skin. A tummy tuck is a limited procedure for the front of the tummy and is inadequate for patients with loose skin all around the lower body. These patients require a more complete procedure called the ‘body lift’. This is a comprehensive procedure that deals with excess skin not only in the tummy area but in saggy buttocks, thighs and the ‘love handle’ area.
The scar is placed in the bikini line and is well hidden. It tends to heal well and results are pleasing.
