Abdominoplasty is indicated for patients who have skin sagging and excess abdominal fat, especially in the region below the navel. The purpose of this surgery is to remove excess fat and skin from the anterior portion of the abdomen. It also aims to treat straight abdominal muscles sagging and recover the waistline, which is often lost.
This procedure is indicated for women who have had babies and show excessive skin and abdominal fat, and men and women who had marked weight loss either by nutritional control or after bariatric surgery (surgery for stomach reduction).
Generally, abdominoplasty is associated with liposuction, receiving the name of Lipoabdominoplasty. The association of these procedures improves the contours of the lateral and posterior sides of the abdomen, making results even more satisfactory by recovering an often lost waist.
