Circumferential Body Lift Q & A

A circumferential body lift is also known as a belt lipectomy, circumferential Abdominoplasty, or a lower body lift. It targets the midsection area, where excess skin remains after significant weight loss. Areas addressed in a circumferential body lift procedure include the abdomen, back, hips, buttocks, and thighs. Dr. Obasi’s goal with a body lift is to remove excess fat and skin. After he removes excess folds, he rejoins the skin and stitches it up. The surgery results in tighter body contours.

A circumferential body lift may be appropriate if you:

  • are at or near healthy body weight
  • have lost a great deal of weight from bariatric surgery or dieting
  • have more sagging skin than can be corrected with a tummy tuck or liposuction
  • see loose tissue skin around the waist and lower body
  • have only thin layers of fat remaining in the belt area.
  • experience restricted mobility, chafing, rash, or infection from overhanging skin
  • are distressed by the appearance of lax skin on the lower body

Dr. Obasi is always happy to discuss your concerns and determine if you’re a qualified candidate for this type of enhancement.

A body lift is a major surgical procedure with a substantial recovery period. Dr. Obasi takes ample time to understand your concerns before recommending it. He explains the procedure, pain management, postoperative care requirements, scarring, and realistic expectations for your results. While the surgery is highly effective, you may experience swelling and bruising, as well as a significant period where you have to limit your physical activities until you’re fully healed. You’ll also need to be mindful of your health habits, as fluctuations in weight can impact the results you get with this type of procedure. Most patients are thrilled with their results, as a circumferential body lift can dramatically improve your shape and free you from the complications of sagging skin. With a healthy diet and exercise routine, results are long-lasting.
