Abdominal Reduction

Abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the middle or lower abdomen and to tighten the abdominal muscles. Multiple pregnancies and marked fluctuations in weight are most frequently responsible, as they stretch the abdominal wall tissues.

Although proper diet and exercise may improve the contour of the lower abdomen up to a point, no amount of exercise will take away skin laxity and stretch marks. In addition, some surgical scars on the lower abdomen, such as those produced by caesarean section, may be improved by abdominoplasty.

Surgery is neither a substitute for weight reduction nor a cure for obesity.

Excess skin and fat are removed from the lower abdomen and the abdominal muscles tightened. In most patients the navel is repositioned. An incision is made above the pubic hairline in an area normally covered by a bikini. The skin is then lifted off the deep muscle layer as far up as the ribs. The abdominal muscles may then be tightened. Finally, the skin is pulled down and excess fat and skin are removed.

Liposuction of the hips and upper thighs may be done in association with abdominoplasty.
