Thailand Belt Lipectomy, Thailand Circumferential Abdominoplasty,Thailand Body Lifts

A Thailand circumferential abdominoplasty is also known as a Thailand belt lipectomy operation and some times known as a Thai body lift. A Thailand tummy tuck is a different procedure from a Thailand belt lipectomy operation.

A tummy tuck is effective surgery to treat loose, hanging abdominal tissue in patients whose excess fat is mostly in the front and somewhat to the sides of their abdomen. Many patients, however, have significant amounts of loose tissue that extends completely around their waist and lower body. This cannot be corrected with a tummy tuck, even with liposuction of the hips and waist. In this case, a procedure call belt lipectomy is a more appropriate choice.

Belt Lipectomy is far more extensive than a tummy tuck. It is an operation to remove the excess skin, fat and tissue around your hips and waistline and back. The width of the “belt” of tissue to be removed depends upon the amount of extra skin and fat you have.

The area of skin and tissue removed can be as wide as 25cm / ten inches. A belt lipectomy provides dramatic and substantial improvement to your body shape. This procedure tightens the fascia and muscle of the abdominal wall giving your body a toned, sculpted look. A circumferential tummy tuck can be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as an arm lift, body contouring, or umbilicoplasty. A body lift can also improves a sagging mid-body caused by multiple pregnancies.
