Circumferencial lower body lift

Circumferential lower body lift

Circumferential lower body lift, also known as circumferential belt lipectomy, is effective for circumferential removal of excess skin and fat around the waist (abdomen and back).
It is usually performed after massive weight loss (achieved by diet or in patients undergoing bariatric surgery – gastric band, gastric bypass, gastric sleeve or others). Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.

Lower body lift improves contour of the abdomen, back, buttock and thigh (posterior and lateral thigh). The result is a better-proportioned appearance with smoother contours.  The procedure can also improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface. Liposuction can be performed simultaneously to remove excess fat deposits.

Technical points

The surgical procedure takes 3 to 5H.
It is performed under general anaesthesia.
It is performed in inpatient basis (at least 2 nights).
