What Are The Differences Between Tummy Tuck, Body Lift, And Paniculectomy_ (4)

  1. 1. What Are The Differences Between Tummy Tuck, Body Lift, AndPaniculectomy?Tummy Tuck only corrects the looseness and redundancy of the abdomen. Body Lift combines aTummy Tuck with the lifting and tightening of the redundant back skin folds, the sagging buttocks andthe outer thighs.Therefore, a Body Lift is a more extensive procedure, with the goal of lifting and tightening the entirelower body. Most people with loose abdominal skin or even with some sagging of the buttocks can betreated with an extended Tummy Tuck or a High Tension Tummy Tuck. For those who, as a result ofmassive weight loss, develop an abundance of lower body skin excess with sagging of the buttocksand outer thighs are better served with a Body Lift.Is the Incision for a Body Lift Larger than for Abdominoplasty?The incision of a body lift extends farther than the incision for Abdominoplasty - past the hips to theback, like a belt. Because of this some people call a Body Lift a "Belt Lipectomy." A Belt Lipectomy,however, does not lift the buttock and only removes excess skin folds.What is the Difference Between Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) and Panniculectomy?Panniculectomy is similar to Abdominoplasty in that it removes excessive abdominal skin. Morespecifically, Panniculectomy is designed for those with an extremely large hanging panus or "sparetire". On the other hand, Tummy Tuck is for those who having excess loose skin, but not a spare tire.Unlike a Tummy Tuck, Panniculectomy does not tighten the abdominal wall, narrow the waistline, ortighten the upper thighs. Panniculectomy only removes the "spare tire".real estate encino
