Eliminate sagging skin and restore your confidence

You may have sagging skin for several reasons, such as the loss of skin elasticity, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or genetics. Beyond aesthetic discomfort, sagging skin on the thighs can lead to chafing, rashes, and physical discomfort while walking or wearing clothes. A lower body lift can restore your confidence and make your thighs and legs look more contoured.

What is lower body lift?

A lower body lift is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin tissues and fat deposits from the lower body — abdomen, flanks, hips, buttocks, and thighs. The surgeon makes strategic incisions to remove excess skin tissues and fat deposits, following which the underlying muscles might be tightened. This procedure makes your lower body look firm, taut, and youthful.

Benefits of lower body lift:

  • Remove excess skin tissues from the lower body
  • Recover your pre-pregnancy abdomen and body
  • Reverse the effects of age and sudden weight changes on your body
  • Remove excess fat deposits from the lower body
  • Enhance muscle definition in your abdomen and thighs
  • Make the lower body look firm, taut, and youthful
  • Improve self-esteem and confidence

Am I a suitable candidate for lower body lift?

A lower body can improve the appearance of your entire body from the abdomen down, including the buttocks, hips, flanks, and thighs. You’re a good candidate for a lower body lift if you have sagging skin in your lower body and are committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle after surgery. Dr. Khan will perform a thorough evaluation and review your medical history to ensure you’re the right candidate for the procedure.

Your personalized lower body lift journey in Michigan


Your lower body lift journey starts with a personalized consultation with Dr. Khan. He carefully examines the current condition of your body, measures the degree of skin laxity, marks the treatment areas, reviews your health history, and asks about your concerns and goals. Based on your unique condition and goals, he curates a personalized lower body lift surgery plan.


Dr. Khan performs a lower body lift under general anesthesia, so you won’t be awake for the surgery. Depending on the targeted areas, he makes strategic incisions along the folds of your skin, following which excess sagging skin is trimmed away. If necessary, he may use liposuction techniques to remove excess fat deposits. He may also tighten the underlying muscles to make your lower body look firm and taut.

The location of the incisions depends entirely on your condition and the targeted areas. But Dr. Khan always places the incisions along the natural folds of your skin or in other discreet locations, ensuring the scars are imperceptible or hidden. After making the necessary adjustments, your skin is redraped, and the surgeon closes the incisions with sutures. The entire procedure takes four to six hours, depending on your condition.


You will need to wear bandages and compression garments for a few days to reduce swelling. You may resume light activities and work within a few days, but strenuous workouts and heavy lifting must be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks. Your skin will also be bruised, swollen, red, and tender for a few weeks — the side effects dissipate gradually.


You will appreciate the results of your lower body lift once the side effects and swelling dissipate after a few weeks. Your lower body will look firmer, smoother, and more contoured. The results are long-lasting, but you must maintain a healthy lifestyle and a stable weight. Furthermore, a lower body lift can reverse the signs of aging, but it can’t stop aging altogether.
