Body Lift (Belt Lipectomy)
The body lift is performed to remove excess skin and sometimes also fat from the torso and upper legs. It is a complicated procedure that can take four or five hours under general anesthesia and involves a longer recovery period of four to six weeks, but it offers an improvement in appearance for patients who have lost significant amounts of weight due to childbearing, diet, exercise or bariatric surgery, or who have loose, inelastic skin for other reasons.
The procedure is often combined with others such as breast lifts, face lifts and arm lifts to retain a proper body proportion.
