360 Lower Body Lift (Belt Lipectomy)

A body lift procedure is done to tone underlying tissue that supports the skin or the fat, in the surgery the loose skin and fat is removed by tightening the back, and removing the extra roll of excess sagging skin, dimpled and any irregular skin surfaces.

A body lift procedure will improve self-image and improve a patient’s overall shape. The procedure will boost self-confidence and achieve leaner abdominal, smoother back and waistline. The appearance of excess skin from men and women after post weight loss, often happens after bariatric surgery can be significant and can seriously affect the body image.

Sometimes liposuctions and other body sculpting procedures are done at the same time. A bra line back lift leaves a horizontal incision along the bra line and a belt lipectomy shows a 360 horizontal waistline incision. Keep in mind scars differ in the quality base of the patient’s skin and it is imperative to avoid sun exposure to prevent hyperpigmentation in the area and follow a regimen of silicone scar cream to keep the scar moisturized which may help.
