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.

Revision/Corrective Surgery Cover
All Somnio’s major hospitals in Thailand offer a client guarantee policy to cover revision operations in Thailand should it be deemed necessary by the hospital’s board. If revision surgery is required, as a result from your elective surgery in Thailand, the Hospital Board will offer full or partial contributions towards the cost for the operation (could include: flights, accommodation and surgeon/theatre costs).
In addition to the client guarantee, if flights and accommodation are NOT covered by the hospital for the revision surgery, Somnio offers a Return Travel Warranty, that can be purchased separately, covering you in the unfortunate case that you are required to return to Thailand and the travel portion has not been covered. This warranty will cover flights and accommodation for the duration of stay required by the Hospital board for the surgery.
