Body Lift / Belt Lipectomy
Some patients, especially those who have lost a significant amount of weight, will have skin laxity that is obvious around the sides and back of their torso, and treating only the abdomen can make this more obvious. A circumferential procedure can deliver a much more dramatic change for those with this degree of laxity. Technique variations can allow for more waist narrowing or upper thigh lifting. The downtime for these procedures is not significantly different from a standard abdominoplasty, and the results can be remarkable!
