A belt lipectomy, also known as a lower body lift, addresses multiple areas of concern in one procedure.

Incision Placement: Dr. Sof will make a circumferential incision around the waistline, strategically positioned to be concealed within the natural contours of the body. Through this incision, he will remove excess skin and fat, as well as tighten the underlying muscles if necessary, to improve body contour and definition.

Closing Incisions and Recovery: Following the procedure, Dr. Sof will close the incisions with sutures and apply dressings as needed. You’ll be closely monitored in the recovery area before being discharged with detailed post-operative instructions. Dr. Sof will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure a smooth recovery process.

Results: As you heal from the belt lipectomy procedure, you’ll begin to notice a more toned, sculpted, and proportionate appearance in your midsection and lower body. Dr. Sof’s approach aims to deliver natural-looking results that enhance your body contour while maintaining balance and harmony.

Liposuction, also known as liposculpture or a lipectomy, is a technique to remove unwanted fat deposits. The unsightly distribution of body fat is usually due to an inborn tendency to deposit fat in one particular area of the body, most commonly the hips. Other areas include; the neck, arms, tummy, loins, thighs, inner side of the knees and the ankles.

The procedure will take around 3 hours, you will either be treated as a Day case or you may need to spend the night, Dr Sof will discuss this with you at your consultation

The operation usually takes between one and three hours, depending on the size of the area being treated. You might be given antibiotics to keep the wound clean. You might go home the same day as the liposuction, or stay in hospital overnight. If you do go home on the same day, a responsible adult should stay with you for the night. Simple painkillers should be enough to keep you comfortable. You may also be given compression stockings to wear, to reduce the risk of a blood clot in the leg or the lung. All patients will be given a pressure garment to wear for up to 6 weeks after the treatment.

Liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in the area of treatment. These cells are removed permanently. If you, however, put on weight then the remaining fat cells may increase in size and result in recurrence of the fatty deposits.

While some scarring is inevitable, Dr. Sof uses advanced surgical techniques to minimise scarring and ensure that incisions are strategically placed for optimal camouflage.
