I realize that sacral agenesis usually a birth defect.
Is There a Danger of Developing Sacral Agenesis with Total Circumferential Belt Lipectomy with Certain Pelvic Structures?

Sacral Agenesis isn't usually a birth defect, it is always a birth defect. If you are asking if damage can be done to the sacrum with a belt lipectomy causing it to lose it's blood supply, I would say no to that.
There certainly are risks to consider if you are contemplating a belt lipectomy. I wouldn't worry about this one.
Sacral agenesis and total circumferential belt lipectomy
Hi fiddledd, yes sacral agenesis is a congenital birth defect. I'm not aware of any way that sacral agenesis could develop after a total circumferential belt lipectomy.
Sacral Agenesis not a risk of Body lift/ Belt lipectomy procedures
Assuming you were not born with a deformity of your lower spine, there should be no reason why undergoing a body contouring procedure would put you at risk for developing one.
