Does a belt lipectomy help with loose skin after weight loss?

Yes it can!  After losing weight, loose skin can remain which can be very uncomfortable.  A belt lipectomy helps in the removal of extra fat and skin from the areas around the abdomen and the back. A Belt Lipectomy helps in contouring of the buttocks and the abdominal area. Usually this procedure is performed after bariatric surgery for toning the body.  It can also be performed for those who have lost a great deal of weight for other reasons and now have loose skin.

Are You A Candidate For A Belt Lipectomy?

  1. Men and women who wish to improve the tone and contour of their abdomen post weight loss
  2. Men and women who wish to improve the tone and contour of their back post weight loss

Recovering After Your Belt Lipectomy Procedure

Dr. Haque will review what to expect with you during your plastic surgery consultation.  After the belt lipectomy procedure, patients will have to be careful to keep their bodies well hydrated and maintain proper nutrition.
