Shedding 40+ lbs or more is a milestone worth celebrating after weight loss surgery. However, most patients struggle with loose skin and sagging even after finally reaching a healthy weight on the scale.

Excess skin tends to accumulate around the beltline after drastic weight loss, causing stretch marks and loose skin on the abdomen, thighs, hips, and buttocks. Diet and exercise can’t remove loose skin on the lower body, therefore a belt lipectomy (body lift) may be necessary to lift and tighten the lower body after slimming down to your goal weight.

What Happens During a Body Lift Procedure?

A body lift (belt lipectomy) is an extensive tummy tuck surgery that gets rid of loose skin and fat 360 degrees around the waistline. It is usually the first surgery post-weight loss patients need for loose skin removal on the lower body. Also called abdominal lipectomy, our surgeons will carefully trim away all the loose skin on the tummy, hips, and posterior. The skin is then pulled upward and sutured in place for a nice skin tightening effect that dramatically improves the lower body.

Liposuction further sculpts and refines the waistline, removing pockets of stubborn fat. Unlike a tummy tuck, which just addresses the abdomen, it lifts and tightens the skin on your belly, hips, thighs, and buttocks. A body lift even removes many stretch marks after weight loss, which is a huge relief to weight-loss patients with stretched skin. Liposuction may also be added to refine and sculpt the lower body, leaving you with a beautiful and natural-looking result.
