Lower Body Lift or Extended Abdominoplasty? I had a gastric band placed two years ago and now I'm ready to shed my excess midsection. What is the difference between lower body lift and extended or circumferential abdominoplasty? What would you recommend based on the attached photo?

Lower body lift for massive weight loss patients. Without the benefit of an exam, its difficult to say what type of circumferential body lift procedure you need. A circumferential abdominoplasty and a 'lower body lift' are basically synonymous. There are a couple of type of lower body lifts, each with its advantages and disadvantages and scar positions. Seek out a board certified plastic surgeon with a practice in post-weight loss body contouring surgery for an opinion.
