Dr. Anthony’s Surgical Technique
This procedure involves general anesthesia and generally requires one night's stay in our adjacent hotel with one of our trained caregiver personnel. The surgery can take an average of 4 to 7 hours.
According to the desired amount of skin removal, an incision may be made all the way around the waist, granting the highest amount of lift and skin excision.
This incision is typically made along the area where a belt is worn, which is why it is sometimes known as a circumferential 360 lift or beltectomy. After the incision is made, liposuction will treat areas of excess fat and sagging skin will be trimmed. The remaining skin will then be stretched taut and attached with stitches. Compression garments may be worn over the lower body to help create a trimmer result and to minimize swelling, bleeding, and bruising.
