The patients who suffer from a flaccid abdominal skin and an accumulation of grease in that area are good candidates to benefit from abdominoplasty. Some of these conditions are inherited, in other cases the laxity is produced due to pregnancy and in other occasions it is produced in patients who lost weight massively. This procedure is frequently accompanied by liposculpture to improve and beautify the shape in a complete form.
Will I be a good candidate for abdominoplasty?
You are a good candidate for abdominoplasty if you have ono or more of the following conditions:
- Excessive or hanging abdominal skin,
- an abdomen which protrudes and is out of proportion with the rest of the body,
- abdominal muscles which are separated and weak,
- if you are a woman with a satisfied maternity.
How is the abdominoplasty performed?
An incision immediately above the pubic area is done, where the C-section incisions are normally located. The extent it prolongs to the sides will depend on the laxity of the tissues, making it possible to be from a 10 cm-incision to one that practically goes all the way around.
Apart from removing the flaccid skin, the excess of abdomen and waist grease, the abdominal muscles are also adjusted in order to have an internal corset and this gives us back our lost waist.
The abdominoliposculpture is one of the most satisfactory procedures to recover the figure.
