|Your New Look|
Abdominoplasty is defined as a cosmetic and reconstructive procedure by which loose front abdominal wall is tightened, and redundant skin is removed from the abdomen. If abdominal muscles are dislocated (separated) by placing permanent stitches they are returned to their original form. Abdominoplasty can be combined with liposuction if necessary.
The need for surgery includes a large deposit of fatty tissue on the abdomen accompanied by redundant skin with the possible presence of striae and a weakened abdominal wall. The abdominal wall looks like an “apron”. Such a condition is the consequence of a sudden increase in the volume of the abdomen due to the increase in body weight, pregnancy and diminished skin elasticity. The surgery can be performed at any age. Women who are planning pregnancy after abdominoplasty should be warned that the condition has the tendency to recur.
