In brief: Lower body lift

In a lower body lift, excess skin and connective tissue are removed to improve the shape and contour of the thighs and buttocks.
Liposuction is frequently performed in conjunction with a lower body lift.

In brief: Major procedure

A lower body lift can lift and shape your thighs and buttocks.
It is designed to treat loose, hanging skin as well as smooth out some cellulite in the outer and inner thighs. It can be combined with an inner thigh lift and usually incorporates some liposuction. You should seek out an experienced plastic surgeon with an aesthetic eye.

In brief: Body Lift Excision

The body lift procedure involves cutting out a wedge of skin which goes all the way around your body.
This is the skin which would never retract naturally on it's own. It must be surgically removed. Thus, the procedure removes excess skin from your stomach, outer thighs, and the posterior buttocks. The goal is to remove the skin and tighten the area. Dr. Ricardo rodriguez baltimore, maryland.
