After a rapid and massive weight loss, there is a sudden change in BMI which leads to skin and soft tissue becoming redundant with a poor tone. These patents are always seeking an aesthetic outcome to improve their body image and self esteem. The first body contouring surgery is usually the lower body lift including abdominoplasty. Modifications of those surgeries occurred during the 20th century with a variety of incision designs and techniques to reach the best the esthetic outcome. Because belt lipectomy procedures are still not widely accepted, still considered time consuming and difficult to perform and well known for their high complication rate we present the full lower circumferential torsoplasty as a good alternative for those procedures.
