Surgical Procedures Belt Lipectomy

Belt Lipectomy

Correct sagging skin around the abdomen, outer thighs, buttocks, hips, and waist. Also known as a Lower Body Lift, Belt Lipectomy removes a circumferential wedge of tissue. Incisions extend completely around the body to remove a "belt" of excess skin and fat. The procedure eliminates the hanging apron of skin and fat and tightens up the underlying muscle wall, which is very similar to what is accomplished in a tummy tuck. Excess tissues located in the back and sides are removed and liposuction of the thighs is performed.
