Belt Lipectomy (Lower Body Lift)
A belt lipectomy or lower body lift is an effective surgical procedure for individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight through diet, exercise or bariatric surgery. This procedure involves the circumferential removal of excess skin from the abdomen, hips, back and buttocks. The lateral thighs are also lifted along with the pubis. The underlying abdominal muscles are also tightened at the same time.
Liposuction – SafeLipo®

Localized fat deposits can be removed using the SafeLipo® technique. Using this method surgeons at UELC can achieve smoother and more natural appearing contours. The SafeLipo® process involves separation of fat, aspiration and finally fat equalization. There is minimal bruising, skin dents, wavy skin, and dermal adhesions.
Tummy Tuck Without Drains

Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a specific type of lift of the buttocks using your own fat. Our technique involves liposuction and preparation of fat in a very specific manner. This fat is then introduced to the butock region using a very meticulous method. A Brazilian Butt Lift is an excellent way to improve an asymmetric, flat, sagging or small buttocks.
Autologous Buttock Augmentation
An Autologous Buttock Augmentation involves contouring the buttocks with your own fat tissue. This procedure involves the transfer of fat tissue into an area that has lost the natural fat. In this technique fat tissue is transferred and NOT liposuctioned fat. Most people who have lost a significant amount of weight and are undergoing a belt lipectomy procedure are good candidates for this procedure. Fat tissue from the lower back is rotated into the buttock to give a more contoured, rounded look.
