Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon in National Harbor Accepting New Patients Near Washington DC, Arlington, Fort Washington, Maryland & Virginia
For many people, diet and exercise can only get you part of the way to your ideal figure. If you've found that your fitness efforts haven't achieved the contoured abdominal area and waistline you desire, then a Bella Body Lift may be the right solution for you.
The Bella Body Lift is a specialized body contouring procedure designed and implemented by Dr. Michael Chiaramonte. This procedure combines a tummy tuck and liposuction (a treatment referred to as lipoabdominoplasty) in order to reshape your midsection. The end result is a more toned, sculpted figure that helps you look your best after putting in countless hours of hard work at the gym.
You can find out whether the Bella Body Lift is right for you and receive individualized treatment recommendations by speaking with Dr. Chiaramonte in person. Please call 301-567-6767 today to schedule your consultation. We serve patients in Maryland, Washington DC, and Northern Virginia.
What is the Bella Body Lift?
A tummy tuck can be an effective procedure for you when your end goal is the removal of any surplus skin from the front of your midsection. There are times, however, when a tummy tuck can leave patients with unwanted fat deposits in their back, love handles, or upper abdomen. This may mean that an additional liposuction procedure is performed a few months later in order to re-shape and contour the rest of your midsection.
This is precisely why Dr. Chiaramonte created the Bella Body Lift.
The Bella Body Lift, a combination of both liposuction and abdominoplasty, is ideal for women or men who are at a secure and healthy weight, but wish to get rid of any disproportionate bulges or fat deposits.
This remarkable operation provides you with liposuction of your entire midsection and a tummy tuck simultaneously. This means that with a single cosmetic surgery procedure, you are conserving both time and funds.
What Can Be Achieved by a Traditional Tummy Tuck?
There are a number of reasons why your abdominal region can lose elasticity and begin to droop, including:
- Pregnancy and childbirth
- Significant weight loss
- The aging process
- Genetic factors
A tummy tuck is designed to correct these issues. During the procedure, Dr. Chiaramonte creates a horizontal incision which extends from hipbone to hipbone. Separated or weak abdominal muscles are tightened using sutures placed in the connective tissue. Dr. Chiaramonte will also eliminate any excess abdominal skin and adjust your navel to align with your newly contoured abdomen. The original incision is then closed with stitches and will be easily hidden below your bikini line to ensure that your scar will be discreetly located.
What Can Be Achieved by Liposuction?
If you're simply looking to remove targeted pockets of excess fat, liposuction can provide an effective solution. Many people find that with regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle, liposuction helps them achieve their body contouring goals.
During your liposuction procedure, Dr. Chiaramonte makes a tiny incision in the treatment region. A thin, hollow tube called a cannula is inserted to suction out the unwanted fat beneath the skin. This can be accomplished with laser energy or ultrasonic vibrations which help to break up the fat and facilitate removal.
When you undergo a Bella Body Lift, Dr. Chiaramonte can avoid making secondary incisions in your treatment region since the same incision can be used for both procedures. By combining the liposuction and abdominoplasty in this manner, your midsection is firmly contoured and fat is removed in one surgical procedure.

How Does the Bella Body Lift Differ from a Traditional Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck alone will help improve any weakened muscles or lax skin in your midsection. However, it can be challenging to properly address the removal of excess fat throughout your abdominal region. By adding liposuction to a traditional tummy tuck, Dr. Chiaramonte can sculpt a beautiful abdominal profile much more effectively than is possible with a tummy tuck alone.
The Bella Body Lift allows you to reshape and contour your entire midsection with one procedure. Often, this approach will help you achieve the best possible results while minimizing recovery time and the overall cost of the procedure.
