There are several types of dermolipectomies; there is the mini-dermolipectomy, which is only to remove in thin patients an excess of skin that usually remains after pregnancies.

Another type of dermolipectomy is indicated for obese patients who have lost weight and are at their weight or only 15% above it, and have excess skin and fat especially at the infraumbilical level (below the navel)

Dermolipectomy is also performed in people who have had liposuction and may need a dermolipectomy if too much fat has been removed and the skin has not been able to retract and return to its natural condition, leaving it hanging.
