With the passing of time and after pregnancies the abdomen loses its youthful flat look. Depending on the woman's body type level of exercise and weight, the problem ranges from small round tummies due to muscle relaxation, to big floppy bellies which hang over the pant line.
Depending on the size of the problem we can perform a liposuction, a mini abdominoplasty combined with liposuction with some amount of skin removal with an incision comparable to that of a C-section. Finally when faced with a serious problem coupled with extended abdominal wall muscle relaxation and dissociation a full scale abdominoplasty is indicated. During the procedure we remove the skin under the belly button, while suturing and strengthening the abdominal muscle walls. This results in a flat abdominal area. The incision length depends on the size of the problem and the patient's weight. In all cases care is taken for it to be concealed inside the underwear area.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, requires two days of hospitalization and the sutures are removed after ten days.
