Bodylift : Belt lipectomy

Body lift

The body lift:

A body lift is a cosmetic surgery that is performed to get rid of excess skin and fat, mainly around the midsection. Looser skin and fat storage increase is a common occurrence with ageing and bad dietary habits. In some cases, exercices and a healthy diet aren't effective at eliminating fat storage, and even less, the skin excess. The good news is that a body lift surgery provides a suitable option to solve this problem.

The body lift is nowadays a quite common cosmetic surgery due to the increasing number of people undergoing weight losses which induce cutaneous excesses, following for example a gastric band or sleeve surgeries.

The body lift has a direct effect on the following body areas: belly, upper thighs, buttocks, hips...

The procedure is meant to remove a strip of skin around the abdominal belt. The skin is then stretched up to the waist area

This surgical procedure is often combined with a liposuction of the following areas: belly, hips, buttocks, thighs

The results are always quite spectacular because of the removal of large amounts of fat and skin. The change, especially in the case of a former obese, is very impressive.

Body lift is ideal for men and women who have lost a lot of weight, either through diet or exercise or bariatric surgery. Sagging skin and excess body fat can have a negative impact on the daily activities of an individual and it can worsen skin rashes and other skin conditions.

How is a body lift surgery performed?

Your plastic surgeon will review your personalized surgical plan with you for the upper, lower, mid and overall body lift. Your surgeon will then make marks on your skin so as to demarcate where the incisions will be done.

You will then be prepared for the procedure by cleaning your skin and dressing you in a medical dress. After this, you will be given general anesthesia.

During surgery, your plastic surgeon will perform liposuction if necessary and then perform the incisions in order to get rid of the excess fat deposits, tighten your muscles, and trim excess skin before suturing it. Bandages will be placed, compression garments and drains over your incisions as needed.

Scars related to a body lift procedure

Although the scars from body lift do not totally disappear as time goes on they will fade away and look significantly less visible than after the weeks after the surgery. In addition the incisions are done in order for the scars to be positioned in a way that will make them less visible and hidden under your bra or clothes.

Postoperative effects and recovery after body lift procedure

After your surgery, you will probably spend three days in the hospital. This will allow your surgeon and his team of nurses to closely monitor your recovery, keep your incisions clean and minimize the risk of complications.

You may experience some discomfort after your surgery but painkillers can be used to reduce pains. You may have to sleep with a special pillow arrangement to stay comfortable and keep your body in the right position for healing.
