Belt Lipectomy

Are you seeking a transformative solution to address excess skin and fat around your midsection? Belt Lipectomy, also known as circumferential abdominoplasty, offers a comprehensive approach to sculpting your body and restoring confidence. In this detailed guide, we’ll explore everything you need to know about Belt Lipectomy, including its benefits, candidacy, procedure details, and more.

What is Belt Lipectomy?

Belt Lipectomy is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat circumferentially around the waistline, lower back, and hips. By combining elements of abdominoplasty and lower body lift, Belt Lipectomy can create a more contoured and balanced silhouette.

Benefits of Belt Lipectomy:

Belt Lipectomy offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Removal of excess skin and fat from the waistline, lower back, and hips.
  • Tightening of abdominal muscles and improvement of abdominal contour.
  • Reduction of sagging skin and cellulite.
  • Enhanced body confidence and self-esteem.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Ideal candidates for Belt Lipectomy include individuals who:

  • Have significant excess skin, fat, and laxity around the midsection.
  • Desire comprehensive body contouring to achieve a more sculpted silhouette.
  • Are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.

How is the Procedure Done?

Belt Lipectomy typically involves the following steps:

  • Anesthesia: The procedure is performed under general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort.
  • Incisions: A circumferential incision is made around the waistline, extending from the lower abdomen to the lower back, allowing access to the underlying tissues.
  • Tissue manipulation: Excess skin and fat are removed, and the abdominal muscles may be tightened using sutures to create a firmer abdominal contour.
  • Closure: Once the necessary adjustments have been made, the incisions are meticulously closed with sutures.

Recovery Time:

Following Belt Lipectomy, patients can expect a recovery process characterized by:

  • Swelling and bruising around the waistline and lower back, which gradually subside over the course of a few weeks.
  • Instructions for post-operative care, including wearing a compression garment to minimize swelling and support the treated areas.
  • Return to light activities within 2 to 3 weeks, with full recovery and resumption of strenuous activities typically within 4 to 6 weeks.

Risk Factors:

While Belt Lipectomy is considered safe, potential risks and complications may include:

  • Infection at the incision sites.
  • Bleeding or hematoma formation.
  • Changes in sensation or temporary numbness in the treated areas.
  • Unsatisfactory cosmetic outcomes, though these are rare when the procedure is performed by a Rejuuvmed surgeon.

Combination with Other Procedures:

Belt Lipectomy can be combined with complementary body contouring procedures, such as liposuction or thigh lift, to achieve comprehensive body rejuvenation and harmonization.

Pain Management:

During the procedure, patients are under general anesthesia to ensure they feel no discomfort. Afterward, any post-operative pain can be effectively managed with prescribed medications as needed.

Preparing for the Surgery:

To prepare for Belt Lipectomy, patients may be advised to:

  • Quit smoking and avoid certain medications that can increase the risk of complications.
  • Arrange for transportation to and from the surgical facility.
  • Follow any pre-operative instructions provided by Rejuuvmed surgeon, including fasting before the procedure if necessary.


Non-surgical alternatives to Belt Lipectomy may include body contouring treatments using radiofrequency, ultrasound, or cryolipolysis technology. However, these options may provide limited results for individuals with significant skin laxity and excess fat.
