Similar to a lower body lift, the procedure may be done as an inpatient in a hospital facility or, depending on how extensive the procedure is, the patient may opt for an outpatient surgical clinic.
As with other similar types of cosmetic surgery, drains will be placed post-operatively to prevent hematoma or seroma formation. Compression-style garments may be worn to help the skin maintain its new shape. Adverse events that are associated with lower body lift include bleeding, infection, clot formation, wound dehiscence, extended wound healing, or excessive scar formation. Common short-term side effects may include numbness, tingling, or other changes in skin sensation.
