Belt Lipectomy, or Trunkal Body Lift, is a circumferential removal of loose hanging skin and fat from around the waist or “belt” line of an individual.
It could be considered an extensive tummy tuck that continues around the sides to remove the loose “love handle” skin that continues onto the lower back.
The advantage to this extensive removal of skin is that the looseness above the buttocks is removed, which has the effect of lifting the buttocks as well. Sometimes the fat in this area is used to augment the buttocks during belt lipectomy, restoring the flattened buttocks to a more youthful and projecting shape.
The surgery typically begins with the patient in the prone position (belly down) and requires the body be turned onto the back once the initial posterior buttocks and lower back area surgery is completed so that the stomach or abdominal area “tummy tuck” can be performed which completes the “belt” lipectomy. The length of the procedure is approx. 3.5 to 5 hours, performed under a general anaesthetic and 2-3 night stay in hospital is required.
