Orange County plastic surgeon, Dr. Siamak Agha consulted with a 37 year old female patient who expressed her desire to have a revision body lift plastic surgery. She traveled to Newport Beach from Washington D.C. for her total body lift surgery. Five months before consulting with Dr. Agha, the patient had a lower body lift in the Washington D.C. area and was unhappy with her results. She initially underwent body lift surgery after losing over 100 pounds as a result of laparoscopic Roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery.
Dissatisfied with the appearance of her breasts, lower body, buttocks and thighs and having already endured a lower body lift just 5 months prior to her cosmetic surgery consultation, she expressed her dissatisfaction with the results. Specifically, there was still significant laxity in her thighs, uneven scarring on her lower body as a result of the shape and placement of the lower body lift scars. Additionally, she lacked any buttock enhancement. Her desire was to have a revision lower body lift surgery and include Dr. Agha’s signature spiral thigh lift, fat transfer breast augmentation and breast lift surgery. Related to her thighs, she decided to proceed with liposuction to reduce the overall size and enhance her buttocks.
On Physical Examination:
Due to deflated and sagging breasts upon consultation, this patient also had asymmetrical breasts with her right breast being larger than the left and an incorrect direction of her right breast. She also had substantial skin and tissue laxity in both horizontal and vertical directions along with the overall disproportionate size of her thighs. She also presented with uneven body lift scars, pubic (mons) sagging and uneven and deflated buttocks.
Dual stage body lift revision surgery, breast enhancement and thighplasty. Patient’s first stage surgery included:
- Lower body lift revision
- Monsplasty to raise her pubic area
- Buttock lift revision to rid the excess lower back tissue while lifting the buttocks and revising the unevenness of the prior incisions

- Buttock augmentation with utilizing lower back fat
- Vertical thighplasty
- Liposuction of lower back and waist, thighs circumferentially
- Buttock fat transfer (Brazilian butt lift)

This surgery lasted 7 hours. The patient recovered in the expected manner and amount of time for this amount of surgery. She returned to Dr. Agha 1 year later to undergo the 2nd stage of her surgery. Her second stage included:
- Spiral thigh lift (Dr. Agha's groundbreaking thigh lift procedure)
- J-upper body lift to reduce outer chest
