Surgery of the Silhouette
An abdominoplasty removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal wall. This surgery is systematically associated with liposuction of the flanks.
Abdominoplasty also returns the tension to the abdominal muscles which improves the cosmetic result of the abdominoplasty. Note that this surgical procedure preserves the navel which is repositioned at the end of the operation. The abdominal scar is generally comparable to an “extended” caesarean scar and is generally not visible because it is hidden by underwear.
Duration of the procedure : 2 hrs 30 mins
Hospitalisation : 1 to 2 days
Location of scars : See photo opposite
Recovery time : 7-15 days
Compression stockings must be worn for 15 days to 1 month after surgery.
