Corrects a loose, protruding or sagging abdomen and creates a flatter, tighter abdomen profile.
Technique: Surgical removal of excess abdominal fat and skin. May include tightening of the abdominal wall where muscles have weakened. Incision at or just above the pubic area.
Generally performed as an outpatient procedure under general anaesthesia, or local anaesthesia with sedation.
Complements: May be performed in conjunction with liposuction to remove adjacent areas of excess fat. Where excess skin or weakened muscles are not factors, liposuction alone is an alternative.
Results: Swelling subsides and initial results appear in 2-4 weeks. Final results appear in 8 weeks. Continued flattening and fading of incision lines for 1 year.
