The recent enthusiasm for surgical and non-surgical weight loss has increased patients' desires to improve their appearance afterwards. Many lose a lot of weight but still feel and look fat because of excess skin as well as back rolls and a loose, saggy abdomen. The gain and loss of weight is circumferential, and a surgical procedure designed for correction of this problem needs to be circumferential.
Body Lift Consultation
At the initial consultation for a belt lipectomy or body lift, your goals and expectations about the surgery will be discussed in detail. An individual decision as to the most appropriate technique(s) to be used will be made and the advantages of each technique will be discussed.
Informational material and discussion will allow you to have a clear understanding of the procedure.
What Happens During the Procedure?
When it involves a circumferential incision around the waist and back, we refer to this procedure as a belt lipectomy. When it is performed along with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), it is a lower body lift. The procedure is performed in the hospital with a planned 2 night stay.
