What is it?
Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure to eliminate excess flaccid skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen. The muscles of the abdominal wall are reinforced, providing a smoother, flatter, firmer tummy.
How is it performed?
This surgical procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic. An incision is made above the pubis, which is extended to the upper edge of the hip bone. The skin is then separated from the abdomen and, when necessary, the abdominal muscles are reinforced with sutures. Later, the excess skin is stretched downward and then removed.
- The abdomen acquires a smoother, firmer and flatter appearance.
- Sag is removed from the abdominal area.
- The waist becomes narrower.
Areas of application
Recommendations and care
- A compression corset should be worn for at least a month.
- After surgery, the client can shower normally, as long as they the surgeon’s indications are followed.
- After the recovery period, gently physical exercise may be resumed to strengthen the muscles in the abdominal area.
This surgery is indicated for both men and women with excess fat and sagginess in the abdominal area for whom a low-calorie diet or regular physical exercise does not help. It is also suitable after a major loss of body weight, unaccompanied by specific treatment to prevent sagging skin.
