A Body Lift, also known as a Belt Lipectomy, is a procedure aimed to reshape and raise sagging body contours. The ageing process, causes the skin to lose elasticity, which results in loss of shape and firmness of the body’s mid section.
This procedure is designed to provide a more youthful appearance by removing fat deposits and loose skin. A body lift can be performed to the lower torso including the abdomen, waist, thighs, buttocks, hips, and upper legs.
Liposuction is often used in conjunction with a body lift.
Lower body lift (belt lipectomy) gives you a smoother, more toned appearance along your belt line. You may benefit from this procedure if you’ve lost a lot of weight and aren’t achieving results from exercise.
The procedure can also firm up the appearance of your mid-section. In addition to feeling more confident, you’ll also have an easier time finding flattering clothes.
Belt lipectomy is a surgical procedure to remove sagging skin from your lower body. It helps people who have lost a lot of weight achieve a slimmer contour. The procedure requires a larger incision than other forms of cosmetic surgery, increasing the risk of complications.
You can lower the likelihood of an extended recovery by closely following your surgeon’s instructions.

This procedure, also known as a belt lipectomy, removes loose skin and fat from around your waist. It creates a firm, more toned appearance in your lower body, including your buttocks and abdominal area.
Anaesthesia and length of the procedure
You receive general anesthesia, a combination of medications that puts you to sleep and block sensation. The duration of the procedure will depend on the patient’s body shape, age, condition. In general the operation time will be in between 2 – 4 hours.
After your procedure, bandages protect the incision while it heals. You may be asked to wear a snug-fitting garment to minimize swelling. Often, there will tiny tubes under your skin to drain excess fluid. To reduce pressure on the incision, you spend a lot of your recovery sitting in a comfortable chair instead of lying in bed.
Risks and Side Effects
Belt lipectomy complications are more common compared to other forms of plastic surgery. This is because your torso is constantly in motion. Even when you’re sitting still, abdominal muscles are working to keep you upright. Bending at your waist adds even more strain, increasing the likelihood that incisions may not heal as they should.
Mr Ferrando will talk you through any possible risks and side effects at his consultations as they will vary depending on the patient’s body shape, age, physical condition and lifestyle.
