In this video I discuss the benefits of a belt lipectomy, or lower body lift, and how it offers the most dramatic transformation of the mid and lower body. I also discuss typical candidates interested in the procedure and show a few before and after photos from our actual patients.
The body lift was designed to remove the excess skin from around your midsection, making it an ideal procedure for post-bariatric patients or for patients who have otherwise experienced a massive weight loss resulting in a lot of excess skin. However, the results are just as dramatic for patients who, in addition to a tummy tuck, want a tightening of the skin in their thighs and buttocks.
One of the best things about the body lift is that it can be done in one surgical setting, or in stages, depening on the patient's specific needs.
Today I'm here to talk to you about a wonderful technique... the body lift. The body lift is a procedure that was designed to remove the excess skin around your midsection. As such, it tightens the skin around your belly, as a tummy tuck would. It also lifts the skin in your hips at the same time that it narrows your waist. And finally, it elevates and reshapes your buttocks, giving them a much more youthful look.
The results are dramatic. The procedure is applicable to those patients who have either lost weight because of a bariatric procedure or on their own. It is also applicable for patients who, because of the aging process, have access skin in those areas.
It is very well tolerated. With the use of more modern anesthesia techniques, specifically IV sedation and tumescent anesthesia, we find that our patients can have the procedure done in an outpatient setting, in our fully accredited surgical facility. And they can be home the same day.
I strongly recommend this procedure to any patient who has done the hard work of losing weight and wants to be proud of their figure.
