A body lift (circumferential abdominoplasty or ‘belt lipectomy’) simultaneously treats the anterior, lateral and posterior walls of the abdomen. This procedure treats the anterior of the abdomen by a standard plasty, and improves the lateral region by slimming down the waist and saddlebags on the outer thighs. Finally, a body lift treats the posterior part by lifting the buttocks and lower back (lumbar) region.
Buttock curve and projection can also be improved at the same time by lipofilling (using liposuction to transfer autologous fat, which redefines surrounding regions such as the lumbar region and posterior part of the thighs).
Although there will be a circular scar, it is discreetly located inside the bikini line and hence hidden from view.
This surgery on the figure also corrects age- or pregnancy-related skin sagging.
