This type of body lift addresses the mid-section of the body, including the flanks, outer thighs, buttocks, and lower abdomen. An incision is made across the lower part of the abdomen down to the inner thighs. Loose skin will be removed and the remaining skin will be tightened, giving the lower section of the body a greatly improved aesthetic. Lower body lift is usually performed under general anesthesia.
    When only the skin is loose and muscle tone is very good and rectii are attached to each other in the mid-line, there is no need to plicate muscle. Only skin excision is done, which is called dermolipectomy or the only skin abdominoplasty. As muscle is not tightened, recovery is very fast. So many men just require dermolipectomy.
    Dermolipectomy is also performed in elderly or obese means less fit patient if they are disabled to take personal hygiene care because of hanging pendulum of abdomen.
