In one procedure, the sagging skin of the abdomen, outer thighs, buttocks, hips, and waist is corrected. Incisions extend completely around the body to remove a "belt" of excess skin and fat. Another common name for this procedure is a "belt lipectomy."
To treat circumferential excess of the lower trunk in the massive weight loss patient, a lower body lift/belt lipectomy is most often employed. In this procedure, a wedge of tissue that goes around the lower aspect of the lower trunk is removed to treat the entire region so that the greatest amount of improvement can be attained. Although a tummy tuck / abdominoplasty, a procedure where only the front of the belly area is reduced, can be used in some massive weight loss patients, the results are often less than ideal because the sides and back are not adequately addressed.
If you have undergone dramatic weight loss either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, and you are at your optimum weight loss goal, you may be a good candidate for this surgery and may wish to consider undergoing this procedure.
The sagging skin commonly develops around the face, neck, upper arms, breast, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs and can make your body contour appear irregular and misshapen. Cosmetic Surgery after major weight loss reduces the excess skin and fat that is left behind from the expansion of skin, loss of fat and lack of tissue elasticity that often occurs after a major weight loss. It is not uncommon, depending on individual patient factors, the extent of surgery needed and surgeon preference, for massive weight loss patients to have multiple operations performed in stages. In such cases, the waiting period between surgeries ranges from weeks to several months or longer.
