What will my lower body lift incisions and scars be like?
Lower body lift incisions leave a permanent, noticeable scar around the entire lower trunk. The scar is low on the stomach, just above the pubic hair area, and extends around the hip bones, past the top of the buttock crease, to meet the incision on the other side.
Your board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon will make every effort to make incisions and scars as inconspicuous as possible. Although incision lines are permanent, in most cases they will fade and significantly improve over time.
Your incision healing and resulting scars will depend on the surgical technique, the steps you take to prevent infection (nutrition, not smoking, hydrating), and any underlying medical conditions or genetic tendencies.
