This surgery consists of two procedures, a belt lipectomy and a breast lift. Belt lipectomy is indicated to patients who have had a significant loss of weight due to gastric-banding or stomach bypass surgery or (less often) as a result of successful dieting and exercise. When the amount of loose skin is very large, especially when the excess is circumferential (circular) in nature involving the belly, hips, back, buttocks, and outer thighs, plastic surgeons choose this extensive plastic surgery to remove this circumferential truncal excess. Breast lift is officially called a mastopexy, this procedure removes excess skin in order to lift up sagging or drooping breasts.
Costs include transportation (airport pick up / drop), 2 days of hospitalization in a private room, 8 - 9 hours of surgery at the Specialized Surgical Unit, general anesthesia, surgical team fees, consumables, nursing care. Accurate estimates for care shall be provided when the patient has been thoroughly examined by the physician after admission.
