A belt lipectomy addresses loose skin and fat from around the waist Rather than just addressing the front of the stomach as a tummy tuck might, a belt lipectomy or lower/circumferential body lift involves a circumferential incision, removing loose hanging skin and fat from the entire “belt line” of the patient. It essentially combines a tummy tuck with a buttock lift. Why undergo a lower body lift? There are a number of reasons you could be considering this procedure. It is of particular interest to patients who may have lost significant amounts of weight, but found their skin has not shrunk in alignment with their body weight loss, leaving them with loose, hanging skin. Whilst the patient should be incredibly proud of their achievement, this remaining skin can feel like a real roadblock to them really feeling like they have achieved their goal. This specialised procedure can add the finishing touches on their transformation.
