Many women want a more toned stomach and sculpted waistline. Whether you crave an hourglass figure or want a more defined midsection, a belt lipectomy procedure may be able to help. Many patients are unfamiliar with this procedure, so this post will highlight its focus and benefits.
What Exactly Is a Belt Lipectomy?
This advanced surgical procedure removes excess skin and fat around your midsection or “belt line.” Also known as a lower tummy tuck, panniculectomy, or lower body lift, it creates a smoother, sculpted appearance that gives your body a toned, contoured look.
Patients interested in this procedure usually have excess or loose skin and fat that does not improve with exercise. Rather than being a weight loss procedure, the belt lipectomy aims to eliminate unwanted and excessive fat.
Benefits of a Belt Lipectomy
Choosing this surgery can address stubborn fat around your lower back and stomach; it can also lift the buttocks and thighs while giving you a more defined midsection. Patients who have undergone massive weight loss may need a belt lipectomy to remove the excess folds of skin that impact their self-confidence and negatively affect their personal hygiene and comfort during movement.
Patients who undergo a belt lipectomy often report:
- A more contoured appearance
- Enhanced self-confidence
- Improved self-image
- A flatter stomach
- A smaller waistline
Does a Belt Lipectomy Shrink Your Waist?
A belt lipectomy can reduce the waistline size by removing excess tissue and skin. Some patients choose to combine liposuction with their belt lipectomy procedure to achieve even more refined results. Depending on the treatment area, patients can lose 1-3 inches around their waist and 15-25 pounds.
Keep in mind that results will continue to emerge for a year or more as skin settles into a new position.
