For patients with excess skin and fat on the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks, a body lift may be the right choice. Also known as a belt lipectomy, this 360-degree operation goes all the way around the waistline (or “beltline”). Our specialist body lift surgeon will trim away the loose skin, then the lower body skin is pulled upward and sutured in place.
This has a nice lifting effect, tightening skin on multiple parts of the lower body in one surgery. Stretch marks around the waistline will be eliminated as well. Liposuction may be added for additional fat reduction on the abdomen, buttocks, legs, and hips if desired. A body lift is more extensive than a tummy tuck. Because it addresses the entire lower body, it requires the skill of an experienced surgeon that is knowledgeable about the body lift procedure. Dr. Otake’s surgical team works harmoniously to deliver exceptional body lift results. With Dr. Otake, your body lift surgery is personalized to your body type.
