Lower Body Lift
Carrying extra weight is not only a health risk, but it also takes a toll on your skin, especially as you age. Your skin loses elasticity so it cannot reshape to fit the natural contours of your body.
Double board certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Steven J. Rottman specializes in lower body lifts for men, and he is proud to offer the procedure to the men of Baltimore, MD, and surrounding communities.
What Is a Lower Body Lift for Men?
When we are young and fit, our skin has the elasticity it needs to reshape itself as our bodies change. The benefit of this is that a man’s body looks toned and masculine. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and other substances our skin needs to “bounce back” into shape. As a result, the skin hangs loosely off our bodies.
A lower body lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat that hides your contours. The procedure involves treatment on several body areas, including the abdomen, outer thighs, buttocks, waist, and hips.
Benefits of Lower Body Lift
When performed by a qualified and skilled surgeon such as Dr. Rottman, a lower body lift enhances a man’s body. Toned muscles can be hidden under sagging skin and fat deposits that cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise.
How Is Lower Body Lift Performed?
The exact procedure for a lower body lift is tailored to the unique needs of each patient. For the abdomen, Dr. Rottman performs a tummy tuck that involves excising extra skin and fat. He may also use sutures to tighten the muscles of the midsection. The tummy tuck may also be extended to inside the waist where men develop “love handles.” The same procedure of removing skin and fat while tightening muscles is also used for the buttocks, thighs, and hips.
Preparing for Lower Body Lift
Because a lower body lift involves surgery in multiple body areas, you can expect an extensive recovery period. Dr. Rottman may perform the body lift over several appointments, or he may treat multiple areas during one surgical appointment. Please arrange to take time off work and have someone care for you at home.
Recovery from Lower Body Lift
Rest is the most important aspect of your recovery from a lower body lift. You may have multiple incision sites that need attention. Expect to feel some discomfort that may be managed with over-the-counter or prescription pain medications. You will also experience swelling, fatigue, and bruising.
After your surgery, Dr. Rottman provides detailed post-surgical instructions that must be followed carefully. You will be required to refrain from even light activities for a period of time. You will also need to avoid exercise and strenuous activities for a few months or longer.
How Much Does Lower Body Lift Cost?
The cost of a lower body lift depends on two factors:
- The number of areas that require surgery
- The extent of correction in each area
Lower body lifts are normally considered cosmetic. Therefore, your medical insurance will not cover a portion of the cost. If you want to make affordable monthly payments for your lower body lift, please visit our financing page to learn about our payment options and CareCredit®.
Is Lower Body Lift Right for Me?
If you are within your ideal weight and have loose skin and extra fat on your thighs, hips, abdomen, buttocks, and waist, a lower body lift may be right for you. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rottman so that you can have the professional guidance you need to make an informed decision about a lower body lift for men.
Why Choose Dr. Steven J. Rottman for Lower Body Lift?
Although lower body lifts are common, not every plastic surgeon has the expertise needed to perform these procedures on men. Enhancing the male body requires slight adaptations of surgical methods. Dr. Rottman is skilled in performing these adaptations to enhance the masculinity of the male body.

Dr. Rottman values the time he spends with his male patients discussing their aesthetic concerns.
