Even after significant weight loss, you might be unhappy with your appearance due to hanging skin and tissue. You may even be having trouble finding clothes that fit despite all your hard work. A belt lipectomy is a major surgical procedure in which excess skin and fat are excised from lower back and hip area. Belt lipectomy is sometimes called a reverse abdominoplasty and results in a significant improvement of your overall trunk. The results are that your “love handles” are gone, your lateral thighs and buttocks are lifted, and when combined with liposuction, is used to improve contour of your thighs.
The key to a successful belt lipectomy is finding a doctor willing to go the extra mile and get the best results possible, not just any results. Odds are you have specific goals in mind for your belt lipectomy. While it's important to realize that a belt lipectomy is a major procedure that often makes 100% perfection impossible to attain, it can still work wonders for improving and enhancing your self-esteem and physical appearance—when performed by a skilled surgeon.
