When did you last see curves . . . not on the road but on your body? If you can’t remember, it may be time to U-turn your figure with a pit-stop at your cosmetic surgeon’s office. A belt lipectomy, more commonly known as a Body-Lift, can put you in the fabulous fast-lane by restoring a flat tummy that accentuates your natural curves. Weight loss is no easy feat, but every year, a few people do manage to drop a significant amount of number of pounds. Sometimes it’s through diet and exercise, sometimes through a gastric bypass, but always through incredible determination. Nothing could be better than shedding the bulk that has kept you hiding in the shadows; but this weight loss can result in an unforeseen problem. Inches of loose, drooping, sagging skin may now hang around the stomach, hips, thighs, and buttocks. This flaccid, unsightly tissue can still weigh between 15-30 pounds, becoming an insurmountable barrier to finally wearing tight jeans, a swim suit, or feeling comfortable during intimate moments. A Body-Lift can tackle that excess, lifeless skin; starting with an incision that circles your body around the belt line. Once the surplus tissue has been circumferentially removed, your tummy, buttocks, thighs, lower back, and even genital area, will be lifted and raised. Through the skilled hand of an experienced cosmetic surgeon, your shapeless body will be transformed with flattering, natural looking contours. An elite, board-certified surgeon like Dr. Paul Vitenas will bring something special into your operating room, as well: a well-trained eye, artistic vision, and a passion for the human form. This ultimately enables him to bring out the shapely, well-proportioned woman that has been hiding inside you for so long. The cost of a Body-Lift is $14,000-$18,000, and includes any anesthesia fees, the surgical facility, and the surgeon’s fee. Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery offers a wide variety of payment choices, to help with the cost of surgery. Besides the standard options of cash or credit, we also offer pre-approved, interest free, medical financing through CareCredit. A Body-Lift may be pricey, but regaining your life is priceless.
