What is a circumferential tummy tuck?

A circumferential tummy tuck, also known as 360 degree tummy tuck or circumferential abdominoplasty (lower bodylift, belt lipectomy), is a more extensive procedure than a standard tummy tuck. It may sound new, but the technique is actually an old one, however, few surgeons practise it due to its difficulty. 

Abdominal dermatolipectomy/abdominoplasty has a long history. There are scattered reports of circumferential dermatolipectomy from the 20th century, but they are scarce and that type of surgery was performed by very few surgeons. Around the year 2000, bariatric surgery experienced a boom which has led to the onslaught of a new group of patients, collectively referred to as “massive weight loss patients”. Because this group of patients experienced body deformities, which occured all around the body, circumferential dermatolipectomy has quickly become a mainstream operation in plastic surgery.

Body contour deformities of the lower torso can range from “anterior only”, i.e. only relating to the front, to “circumferential”. Anteriorly, if skin laxity and/or abdominal wall weakness is present, then abdominoplasty is needed to create the best contour. If the deformities involve skin and subcutaneous laxity circumferentially, then bodylift/belt lipectomy procedures are usually required to adequately address the issue.

Who is the perfect candidate for a 360° tummy tuck?

A flat stomach requires hard work. In some cases even a balanced diet and exercise cannot result in a tight and beautiful tummy. This may occur after pregnancy or the aforementioned massive weight loss, when the amount of excess skin is so extensive, the body cannot cope with it by itself. Then people decide to turn to surgery professionals. If discomfort occurs mainly due to sagging skin on the lower part of the abdomen and the patient wishes to have a flatter tummy and a slimmer waist, then a simple tummy tuck is normally enough. A circumferential tummy tuck is a more complicated procedure and is mostly offered to patients who have experienced massive weight loss and are unhappy with sagging skin both in the abdominal and back area, so they require changes all over their body. Thus a 360 tummy tuck can help make dramatic changes that are not possible to achieve with conservative treatment methods.

There are three groups of patients that can potentially benefit from bodylift/belt lipectomy. They are discussed in detail below:

Preparing for the surgery

To begin with, the patient has to schedule a consultation with the surgeon. The surgeon will examine patient’s general health, prepare an individual treatment plan, and evaluate any possible risks.

Bear in mind that the patient might be asked to perform any necessary lab tests, including blood work, urine test, ECG (electrocardiogram), X-rays, or others.

The surgeon will also discuss patient’s previous medical history, any ongoing diseases, and drugs (aspirin, supplements or any hormonal medication) that are being taken by the patient. It is also important to prepare mentally as well as physically. It is not uncommon to feel uncomfortable when thinking about upcoming surgery. To make the procedure and hospital stay a pleasant experience, patients might ask someone close to them to assist them during time of recovery.

Patients are advised to stop smoking and avoid consuming excessive amounts of alcohol approximately one month before surgery. It would also be beneficial to ensure a well-balanced diet and to exercise regularly in order to speed up wound healing.

360° tummy tuck recovery

Even though circumferential abdominoplasty is more complex, the recovery period is similar to that of abdominoplasty. Patients normally spend two nights at the clinic. Drainage tubes are placed after surgery in order to collect fluids that the body produces when the wounds are healing. They are normally removed the second day after surgery. In some cases, if the body is producing an excessive amount of fluid, the drainage tubes may be kept a bit longer. A patient will be prescribed painkillers, if required.
