Many women are unhappy with their body weight. They practice intense sports activities, follow strict diets or even decide for a gastric band or a gastric bypass. After the long process of losing weight, doctor's visits and surgeries, they will have achieved the desired body weight, but still, they are not satisfied with their looks. The reason: after the weight loss the body proportions are no longer well-balanced! A lower body lifting (abdomen, hips, buttock, and back) can help regain a harmonious look. Especially, but not only, after a gastric band or gastric bypass surgery.
Depending on the patient's situation, a lower body lifting may comprise a tightening of the abdomen, hips, buttock, and back. With this sophisticated surgery, the contours of the whole lower body will be newly defined in just one procedure. By achieving the maximal lifting effect for the improvement of the skin surface, the whole lower body may be newly shaped. Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch is renowned for her caring manners and her artistic finesse in sculpting the different body areas. How perfect the results will remain in the long period depends on a variety of factors; among which the initial body weight, secondary diagnoses, constant body weight and the strict adherence to the postoperative measures, as well as an optimal wound healing.
Between 4 and 5 hours
Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch performs the lower body lifting in the clinic «Pyramide» or in the clinic «Im Park». After the surgery, you will have to stay in the clinic for 4 to 7 days.
At least 2 weeks
A lower body lift may cause postoperative hemorrhages, accumulations of wound fluids, as well as infections. Light swellings, tearing of sutures, feeling of tightness, aesthetically unpleasant scars, thromboses and embolisms may also occur.
The risk of complications, such as circulatory disorders of the lower abdomen and impaired wound healing, is significantly higher for patients suffering from severe nicotine addiction and chronic diseases.
After the surgery, you must wear a compression girdle day and night for 4 weeks, then for 2 weeks only during the day. During this time, sport, sauna, and intensive UV exposure are not allowed.
The costs for a lifting of the lower body may vary depending on the extent of the surgery and will be agreed upon in advance. The price is inclusive of all services, such as the consultation, the surgery, the anesthesia, the medications, the hospitalization, the follow-up controls, and all potential corrective surgical procedures.
