Belt Tummy Tuck / Lipectomy
Losing a lot of weight is not an easy journey and if you’re in the position of having achieved that goal, you should be feeling great and congratulating yourself. However, often following extreme weight loss, people unfortunately find the loose skin left behind even harder to get rid of than the weight itself. Having lost the fat tissue, the skin can ‘hang’ from the body, creating folds – on the stomach this is often referred to as a ‘belly apron’. Despite a healthy diet and rigorous exercise regime it can be impossible to resolve naturally and in cases such as this a belt tummy tuck is an incredibly effective solution.
Belt tummy tuck surgery is similar to a straight abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), where an incision is made, the skin pulled upwards, stitched into the new position and excess skin is then removed. However a belt tummy tuck involves an incision around the entire waistline, which allows the procedure to focus on the lower back as well as the stomach, whilst also providing a lift to the buttocks.
The technique can be performed in conjunction with a thigh lift and full buttock lift to provide a wider sphere of body contouring and redefinition, this combination of procedures is often referred to as a lower body lift.
For many people, belt tummy tuck surgery is the last step in a long journey to obtaining the body they’ve been working incredibly hard to achieve. It’s a very effective procedure, boasting instantly obvious results, and as such can be life changing for those who chose it.
