What is a Belt Lipectomy?
With so many patients now presenting to us after massive weight loss and after bariatric surgery, we are getting more and more enquiries about Tummy Tuck and Belt Lipectomy surgeries.
But what is a Belt Lipectomy?
There are numerous approaches to surgically removing belly fat and redundant skin folds that people are often left with after massive weight loss. Different types of Abdominoplasty surgery include: Standard Tummy Tuck, Mini Tummy Tuck, Extended Tummy Tuck and Belt Lipectomy.
When men or women lose small amounts of weight, they are often able to tone and tighten the skin of their lower body in the process. However, the more weight you lose, the harder it becomes for your skin to regain its elasticity and return to its normal shape. Patients who have undergone dramatic weight loss will often have excess layers and folds of skin. This tissue accumulation or sometimes called an ‘apron’ not only affects how you look, but it can also cause painful skin irritation. Surgical correction eliminates this excess skin for a slimmer, more confident you.
The incision is circumferential around the body/waist. The apron of excess skin is removed and the skin is then stretched and tightened. Sagging skin along the back and buttocks can also be treated using a belt lipectomy. Each belt lipectomy is tailored to the patient, targeting individual problem areas. Your customised procedure will ensure results that highlight your body’s natural contours and curves.
A tummy tuck is a different surgery from a belt lipectomy. A tummy tuck is an effective surgery to treat loose, hanging abdominal tissue in patients whose excess fat is mostly in the front a little to the sides of their abdomen. Patients who have significant amounts of loose tissue that extends completely around their waist and lower body are the perfect candidates for a belt lipectomy.
Belt Lipectomy Procedure starts from 230,000 THB = AU$8,846
