Belt Lipectomy (Individual Result May Vary)
This lady has lost about 50 pounds with a combination of diet and exercise. She wanted improvement primarily in the abdomen and to a lesser degree her flanks. Her limbs and buttock were already nicely shaped. She had excess skin and fat over the flanks and a mons pubis that was droopy. She underwent a belt lipectomy with liposuction of the flanks. This incorporated tightening of the looseness (diastasis) of the abdominal wall, suctioning to improve the contour of the upper abdomen and the flank and then the excision to remove the loose skin. The incision over the mons was placed low to facilitate an elevation and thinning of the mons to create a more youthful appearance. The scars are low and fall within most low cut clothing. She has gotten a very nice result from the surgery. It has resulted in a torso that much more closely matches the youthful features of the other parts of her body.
This lady lost about 60 pounds on her own and has developed loose skin circumferentially around her torso that she wished improved. She, in addition, had plans for abdominal hysterectomy. She had a prior breast reduction and had prominent chest wall folds from the extension of the inframammary crease. She underwent a combined operation with her GYN to remove her uterus. She underwent a circumferential belt lipectomy and revision of the scar on the breasts. In addition, the fat that was removed from her abdomen in conjunction with the abdominoplasty and the fat removed from her flank were injected into her buttocks to give a more rounded, projecting buttock contour. The results of the surgery have been very, very nice and gratifying. It has converted her buttock contour from a pear shape (V) to a more feminine (A shape) contour of her flank and buttock. This is the result you see with the Brazilian butt lift, in this case combined with her abdominoplasty. The resection of the skin across the flanks has also improved the folds across her upper back. The improvement in her contour is dramatic. It has allowed her to wear much more feminine clothing and attire.
This is a 40-year-old lady from Panama City, FL who desires some cosmetic improvement in the waist and buttocks area. She had flattening of the buttocks area with the excessive fullness in the flanks. She also had a protuberant abdomen with loose skin.

This lady had a prior abdominoplasty who wished some further improvement with her flank and buttock contour. She had large flank collections with rolls of excess skin and fat on her back and a flattened buttock contour. She underwent a buttock/thigh lift with merged anteriorly into her prior abdominoplasty scars. This allowed the abdominoplasty scar to be lowered so that the scars on the front side were easily hidden and camouflaged beneath intimate clothing. This also kept the scars on the back side low. The operation created an S-shaped contour to her back side and more projection to her buttocks. She, in addition at the same time, had a breast reduction and some liposuction of her upper back.
\This patient's main concern was the loose skin and striations in the lower part of the abdomen. On her flanks, she had large flank collections and a good bit of redundant tissue that bunched up when she sat. She underwent a belt lipectomy which tightened the abdominal muscles and removed excess skin on the front. On the back side, the flat collections over the flanks were removed as well as the removal of the large belt redundant skin. The incisions are low enough to where they can be hidden in intimate attire. Her abdomen remains flat even when sitting. The contouring in the flanks unmasked the pleasing and rounded buttock contours. The belt portion on her backside also removed the folds in the lower back.
These are photographs of a 60-year-old woman who wished improvement in her truncal contour. She wanted her abdomen flattened and the excess skin removed. She wanted some reduction in the size of her pubic area and wanted some contouring and definition of her flanks, buttocks, and hips. She underwent an abdominoplasty with a buttock/thigh lift and fat injections in the buttock. This operation greatly slimmed the silhouette of her torso, flattened her abdomen, elevated and flattened the mons. She now has concavity in the waist area and some projection across her buttock most clearly seen on the posterior oblique photographs. She has gotten a very nice result from her surgery. It has allowed her to wear more feminine clothing, which is clearly more comfortable for her.
This is a 30-year-old lady from Andalusia, AL who desires some cosmetic improvement of her abdomen and waist area. Also, She complains of flattening in the buttocks area. She said her clothes did not fit right because they were too wide in the upper hip area and did not fit her waist. She had trouble filling out her jeans because of the flatness of her buttocks. She underwent a belt lipectomy and Brazilian butt lift. Postoperatively, her abdomen is flat with contour of the waist. The butt is much more shapely since fat has been transferred into the buttocks. The buttocks has also been uplifted.
This is a 50-year-old woman who had 4 children and resulted in a significant amount of volume loss in the breasts, protuberant abdomen, and loose skin about the circumference of her torso. She also had pre-existing large collections over the flank that tended to flatten her buttock contour. She underwent in stages a breast augmentation with Natrelle Style 68 MP saline implants, 450 cc on the right and 490 cc on the left. This has resulted in a greatly improved contour of the breasts and a breast size that is more congruent and appropriate for her overall body shape and hip width. The abdominoplasty consisted of repair of the rectus muscle, Vaser liposuction of the abdominal flap, direct excision of the large fat collections over the flanks, and removal of a significant amount of loose skin about the circumference of the torso. The low incision in the front allowed elevation, thinning, and triangulation of the mons pubis and allowed the bikini scar line to be hidden under intimate clothing. She has gotten a very nice result for which she is most pleased.

This is a 40-year-old lady from Ft. Walton Beach, FL who had problems with weight loss. She has been to a weight loss clinic and has been frustrated with the inability to see any significant improvement in weight loss despite the fact that she has been on a strict diet and felt like she has been starving herself. I have done a belt lipectomy on her, which has removed a lot of excessive fat in the waist area. If she will start dieting now that I have done the belt lipectomy, she will notice a rapid improvement in weight loss and will be able to see results much quicker than she was prior to having this belt lipectomy.
