Body lift otherwise known as Belt Lipectomy is a procedure that extends a Tummy Tuck around to your back region in order to re-suspend your tummy, back, part of your buttocks and the sides of your thighs. In essence it is a 360 degree Tummy Tuck where the skin and fat are taken away to contour your stomach area and your lower body. It is like pulling up your pants along with tightening the skin and tissue around your stomach. Liposuction can also be combined with a body lift in certain body types where it is indicated. This is a very powerful procedure in terms of changing your physique. It can make a dramatic change in your lifestyle and appearance. There is upper and lower body lifts.

What is Upper Body Lift and Lower body Lift?

A Upper Body Lift involves removing the skin and soft tissue in the upper part of the back. The incision is horizpontal in the upper back and this technique is used if the upper back has significant excessive tissue or rolls. The Lower Body Lift on the other had will not have affect the contour of the upper back as much. The benefit of the Lower Body Lift is contouring the abdomen and lower to mid back area. Dr. Parikh will be able to determine what procedure you need to fit your goals and needs. At times both techniques are required.

What is Fleur-Di-Lis Abdominoplasty | Tummy Tuck?

The Fleur-Di-Lis Abdominoplasty involves and addition al incision in the midline of the tummy that connects with the traditional tummy tuck incision that is horoizontal in the bikini line.

Dr. Parikh will determin at the time of consultation whether this additional incision is required to meet your goals.

How do I prepare for Body Lift surgery?

Safety is the number one priority with any surgery. In preparation for your Belt Lipectomy surgery you should have your expectations and desired outcomes set, your medical and surgical history reviewed as well as any medications you are taking. All this is completed during the consultation with our Plastic Surgeon Dr. Parikh. Most importantly medications that thin your blood can increase bleeding risk during or after your Belt Lipectomy surgery.  You can find some of these common medications to avoid by clicking here: Medications to Avoid. Some over the counter medications or herbal medications may also contribute to blood thinning and increase bleeding risk. During your consultation, these medications will be reviewed and discussed in more detail with regards to stopping them. Sometimes, these medications may involve consulting your primary care provider on whether this is safe to do or not.

What is the postoperative care after Body Lift surgery?

After your lower Body Lift, our plastic surgeon Dr. Parikh will contact you and keep a close follow up during the initial phase. Instructions regarding wound care, drain care and postoperative medications will be reviewed with you in detail. Monitoring of your progress after surgery is very important. Complications although uncommon can occur early or later in the postoperative course. We encourage patients to contact us immediately if there are any concerns after surgery.

Can a Body Lift be combined with other Procedures?

A Body Lift can be combined with other procedures such as liposuction of the mons area or upper back. The body lift is one of the longer body contouring procedures. One must consider the anesthesia time involved and safety of combining procedures. For example a armlift or thigh lift at the same operation. Generally it is safer to stage these procedures - meaning doing them at different times as seperate procedures.

What are the possible complications after Body Lift surgery?



Wound breakdown

Loss of skin

Altered sensation to the area

Contour irregularity


Risks of the procedure are outlined above and will be discussed with you in detail at the time of your consultation. Our Plastic Surgeon Dr. Parikh encourages you to have questions ready and is always available to answer questions regarding your safety in terms of procedure and anesthetic risks.
