Lower Body Lift Utah | Crofts MD Plastic Surgery


What is a Lockwood Lower Body Lift?

A Lockwood lower body lift aims to restore the buttocks and thighs to a more firm and youthful appearance. As we age, gravity takes its toll on the lower body, giving the buttocks a boxy or saggy appearance and an increased appearance of cellulite. Weight gain and weight loss can also have a significant effect on the lower body. The Lockwood lower body lift procedure can address the loose skin, sagging, and cellulite by dissecting the skin and tissue to the mid-thigh, thus lifting and anchoring the skin into its new position, at which point the excess skin and fat are removed. The incision runs along the backside in the bikini line.

Dr. Crofts will address the expected results with you during your consultation.

The Aesthetica Difference

Dr. Crofts has performed hundreds of lower body lifts over his more than 24 years as a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Utah. Dr. Crofts uses the Lockwood Approach to body lifting. Other – less extensive – procedures take less time and cost less, but fail to achieve the superior lifting results that Lockwood’s approach yields. A belt lipectomy, for instance, only removes some excess skin and fat in the flank area. The Lockwood approach uses the deeper fascia as the anchoring point, which minimizes wound breakdown and gives a true lift in the buttocks and thighs. This approach also minimizes the spreading of the incisions, resulting in a thinner scar.
