The Benefits of Getting a Belt Lipectomy After Weight Loss
If you have excess skin around your waist that hangs loose, you are not alone. Perhaps you have worked hard to shed some unwanted pounds, but now you are left with sagging, extra skin. Despite your efforts to work out and tone the muscle, exercise does not tone or lift the skin above. Those who have gone through extreme weight loss, losing 50 pounds or more, may find that their skin lacks the elasticity to conform to their new, thinner shape. A belt lipectomy can help you re-contour the body and get rid of the loose, baggy skin.
What is a Belt Lipectomy?
A belt lipectomy, often referred to as a lower body lift, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the lower portion of your body (including outer thighs, abdomen, hips and buttocks). There are different options and a consultation with our team is the best way to decide which one is ideal for your body. For example, one option is autologous augmentation for the buttocks. A tummy tuck at your Vaughan clinic is part of the belt lipectomy procedure. The procedure itself takes about 3 to 4 hours and there will be a need for 1-2 weeks to recover from the procedure.
Is a Belt Lipectomy Right for Me?
If you have undergone massive weight loss, or have excess skin around the waist or want to improve your outer thigh or buttock shape (including autologous augmentation of the buttocks), a belt lipectomy can give you the physique you want. Most individuals that have gone through a bariatric surgical procedure receive belt lipectomy surgery. However, you will need to wait a year or so after your bariatric surgery to undergo the tummy tuck, because it can take a year or more for the weight to come off. Once your weight has plateaued, it is the ideal way to finish your full-body transformation.
What are the Benefits of a Belt Lipectomy?
Instant Transformation – Many of us have loose, sagging skin around the waist, thighs and buttocks. You can have the skin around your thighs, abdomen and buttocks redefined to see an instant transformation. Naturally, you will have to wait for the surgical swelling to go down, but the excess skin will be removed during the procedure.
Enhances Extreme Weight Loss or excess skin – The belt lipectomy procedure will also enhance extreme weight loss from bariatric surgery and other procedures.
