Belt Lipectomy

Ideal Patient:

  • Excess skin and fat in abdominal area, flanks, thighs and back
  • Lack of contour in the waist
  • Excessive protrusion of the buttocks

The Method:

If you are looking for a dramatic transformation of your midsection and lower body, a belt lipectomy reshapes and contours the body with skin and fat removal. Back rolls and love handles will disappear with this procedure. A belt lipectomy can be done alone or as part of an entire lower body lift which resculpts the abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks.

The Procedure:

A belt lipectomy is a tummy tuck that extends around the back. By removing a circumferential segment of skin and fat, the procedure will lift the thighs and buttocks and recontour the waist. The incision is made low enough to be hidden by a bikini type brief.

The belt lipectomy/body lift procedure involves a combination of several procedures including: tummy tuck, thigh and buttock lift. A lower body lift may be done in one surgery or in stages, depending on the patient’s needs.

“My breasts are spectacular”

Dr. Kagan performed breast reduction on me and my breasts are spectacular! I can’t say enough about how fabulous they look. He exceeded my expectations. I had BR surgery by another Dr. years ago and he barely reduced them – so I suffered years and money with breasts that were still way too big. Thank you, Dr. Kagan. I couldn’t be happier!
