What is a lower body lift?

Plastic surgeons will often use different terms for the same procedure, causing confusion for prospective patients.

We’ve seen terms such as body lift, lower body lift, belt lipectomy, and circumferential body lift interchangeably used. Usually, for my patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, the first choice is a circumferential body lift = belt lipectomy = lower body lift. This procedure is 3 procedures all in one:

1. tummy tuck
2. waist/lateral thigh lift
3. buttock lift +/- buttock augmentation

These procedures require about 5 hrs of surgery and an overnight stay at our Houston practice.
