Body Lift

Evansville, Henderson, Indiana

Why Do People Get Lower Body Lifts?

Many people have excess skin on their buttocks, outer thighs and abdomen after they lose a significant amount of weight. This is a very frustrating problem to deal with, especially since people work so hard to lose weight in the first place. A circumferential abdominoplasty, which is commonly referred to as a lower body lift in Evansville, IN, can remove excess skin from around the trunk. This creates a smoother abdominal shape. It also smooth’s the upper portion of the outer thighs and lifts the buttocks.

The Consultation

It is very important for you to select a qualified plastic surgeon. Dr. Zieg is a cosmetic surgeon who is qualified to perform a variety of procedures. During the consultation, he will examine you and discuss your needs and expectations.
