Lower Body Lift

Lower Body Lift – Belt Lipectomy – Massive Weight Loss

People who have undergone massive weight loss following gastric bypass surgery often find they are left with sagging folds of skin that will not conform to their new body shape. Even someone who loses a large amount of weight through diet and exercise can be left with loose, redundant skin.  Unfortunately, this skin has lost its elasticity and remains excessive, leaving surgery as the only way to reduce it.

A lower body lift can reduce excess skin around the thighs, abdomen, and buttocks, improving patient mobility and giving the lower body a more contoured, attractive shape. Depending on the patient’s needs, Dr. Mackenzie may perform abdominoplasty, belt lipectomy, liposuction, medial thigh lift, lateral thigh lift, or a combination of these procedures.  There may be other procedures that are indicated as well, such as mastopexy (breast lift) or brachioplasty (arm lift), and your body makeover may need to be completed in more than one stage.  Safety is always a priority when Dr. Mackenzie plans your plastic surgery.

If you have had massive weight loss but are unhappy with the remaining excess skin, you should consider plastic surgery in Santa Barbara with Dr. Mackenzie to complete the body makeover you envisioned when you began your weight loss process. Contact Pacific Plastic Surgery today to learn more.
