Circumferential Body Lift
This 30 year old, 6’4” tall male patient came to the clinic following major weight loss. He successfully lost 120 pounds by changing his exercise and eating habits, and his weight had stabilized at 228 pounds. His concern was the loose skin around the trunk and lower abdomen. He underwent a circumferential body lift (also called a belt lipectomy) which removed excess skin from around the entire trunk. This procedure was done at Southlake Regional Health Centre and he stayed overnight. Drains were used for this extensive procedure, and they were all removed by one week after surgery. He developed small fluid collections called seromas which were easily drained as a minor procedure in the clinic. He was off work for 3 weeks, then returned on light duties for another 3 weeks. People considering this operation must be prepared for significant downtime and potential wound healing issues after surgery. Most of these problems can be managed without further surgery. It is important to have a full discussion of the risks and healing time before having this or any operation.
