Dr. Pickart offers lower body lift surgery to the residents of Ventura, Camarillo, and the surrounding areas of California.
Many Americans have done what nobody thought was possible: They have lost a lot of weight. Yet, their suit of skin does not always shrink to fit their new body. For patients wishing to simultaneously improve the appearance of their abdomen, hips, and buttocks, Dr. Pickart specializes in lower body lifts.
How is a lower body lift performed in Ventura?
During your lower body lift procedure, excess fat is removed via liposuction, and loose or sagging skin is removed. The remaining skin is lifted, repaired, and tightened to give your lower body the best contoured shape possible. Incisions are then closed with resorbable sutures, and drains are used to control stretching and swelling.
This procedure is performed in two parts. The patient’s back and sides are addressed first, followed by their front. Additionally, a lower body lift can be performed in conjunction with an inner thigh lift.
What can I expect after a lower body lift in Ventura?
Surgical drains are placed beneath the incisions to remove fluid as it accumulates. Drains typically are removed during a follow-up appointment scheduled two to three weeks following the procedure. Compression garments may be placed on the patient to control swelling and smooth out the skin. Patients are encouraged to start walking on the night of surgery and resume normal activities four to six weeks after surgery.
How much does a lower body lift cost in Ventura?
In some circumstances, Pickart Plastic Surgery is able to work with your insurance company to obtain coverage for a portion of a lower body lift. Dr. Pickart also offers CareCredit® to provide financing option for patients.
