Lower Body Lift Palm Desert | Palm Springs
A lower body lift, also called a belt lipectomy or circumferential panniculectomy, is a type of body contouring surgery that improves the appearance of the mid- to lower body after massive weight loss or other reasons. Body lifts can improve sagging skin, pockets of fat, and weakened underlying tissues that leave you with hanging skin at the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and outer thighs. An incision made around the body removes a “belt” of excess skin and fat.
If you are mainly looking to reduce fat in one or more of these areas rather than improve skin elasticity, you may benefit from liposuction instead of a lower body lift. However, many patients need a combination of excess skin removal and fat sculpting. In those cases, Dr. Quardt performs liposuction at the time of body lift surgery.
