What is Abdominoplasty?
The abdominoplasty is the only real solution to the treatment of excess skin and subcutaneous fat in the abdomen. It usually requires general anesthesia but when the operation is limited to the correction of skin area only below the navel (mini abdominoplasty) it can be performed under local anesthesia and/or sedation.
Note that we almost always combine abdominoplasty with isolated liposuction on the lateral abdominal sides and with general abdominal liposuction at the same time as abdominoplasty or in a previous reconstruction stage, if this is selected by the patient, because this brings with even better cosmetic results.
