Seattle Lower Body Lift Specialist – Dr. David Pratt
Serving Patients in Tacoma, Seattle, Bellevue and Everett, Washington
One of the most prominent changes which occur as a result of pregnancy or significant weight loss is the weakening and stretching of the skin and ligaments of the hips, outer thighs, and buttocks, resulting in sagging of these areas.
The force of gravity pulling downward on us year in and year out can also cause some of this unwanted accumulation of fat and skin where it is not welcome, such as the outer thigh region.
A lower body lift surgery hikes up these sagging tissues and tightens the hips, buttocks and outer thighs by removing excess skin and fat from the lower back and hip regions. The result is a youthful appearing buttocks, smooth and sexy outer thighs, as well as slimming of the hips, with improvement of your “muffin tops” and “love handles”

Am I a good candidate for a Lower Body Lift?
The best candidates for lower body lift surgery are men or women who are non-smokers in good physical and emotional health, but are bothered by prominent “saddle bags”, sagging buttocks, or excess stretch-damaged skin of the outer thigh region following pregnancy or significant weight loss.
Realistic expectations about your surgery’s outcome and commitment to a healthy lifestyle are also important.
Where will the scars be?
Dr. Pratt will listen to your wishes with regard to placement of scars. Typically he is asked to place the scars as low as possible. Usually, the scar is just above the buttock crease and runs around the waist to the hip bones in the front. The scars usually heal well and fade with time.

Is Lower Body Lift painful?
Typically, patients report minimal pain when undergoing lower body lift. This pain is usually well controlled with oral pain medication. Learn more about our PainBuster Program.
Nausea and vomiting can contribute significantly to postoperative discomfort, thus Dr. Pratt will prescribe an anti-nausea “patch” prior to your surgery (Learn more about our No Nausea protocol.
Your Initial Consultation
During your initial consultation, Dr. Pratt will evaluate your overall health, inquire as to what your goals of treatment are, assess your contours and skin tone, then discuss the effect of any scars that may be already present from previous surgeries.
He will review your options for treatment, whether they be lower body lift, medial thigh lift, and/or liposuction. This is your opportunity to speak openly with Dr. Pratt about any questions or concerns you may have.
