Dr. Tracy McCall provides lower body lift surgery at her practice serving the greater Milwaukee area, including Pewaukee, Waukesha and Brookfield. A lower body lift, or belt lipectomy, is often used for patients who have already lost a large amount of weight, either after dieting or after bariatric surgery, and have hanging skin. With this procedure, your abdomen is considerably improved (including a contouring of the sides) and your buttocks will be lifted. Patients at Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery in Pewaukee, WI, usually opt for a lower body lift to gain firmer, younger-looking contours.

How Does a Lower Body Lift Work?
Dr. Tracy McCall will generally begin the procedure by turning the patient over on the operating table. This position enables her to remove the skin from around the entire torso. The scar goes around the entire body at about the level of the waist in the back, dipping just above the pubic hair in the front. It allows for a much greater skin reduction than a panniculectomy. There is a longer recovery, and usually you will stay overnight in the hospital.
Even though this operation isn’t commonly performed in the Pewaukee area, a lower body lift is one of Dr. McCall’s preferred procedures. She finds that it can be a great surgery for people who are in appropriate condition.
What are Pewaukee Lower Body Lift Costs?
A belt lipectomy is an intensive procedure that requires many different stages from preparation to recovery. Dr. McCall and her team of professionals will be able to offer more detail about what the operation entails, including Pewaukee lower body lift prices, during your initial consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Lower Body Lift?
Sometimes, despite consistent exercise and a good diet, you have loose, sagging skin and uneven contours that just won’t “get into shape.” If aging, sun damage, pregnancy and significant weight changes are affecting the appearance of your lower body, then a belt lipectomy may be a good choice for you. The men and women who visit our Pewaukee facility for a lower body lift typically have one or more of the following concerns:
- Flabby abdominal area, either locally or extending around the sides and into the lower back area
- Buttocks that are low, flat or uneven
- Groin that sags into the inner thigh
- Droopy thighs, including the inner, outer or posterior, or circumferentially
Some patients are also looking to improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface, commonly known as cellulite.
