Abdominoplasty (abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure that corrects sagging of the abdominal skin and other abdominal wall deformities. The most common lesions seen in the abdominal wall are skin laxity (alone or in combination with localized fat accumulation), stretch marks and thinning of the muscle wall leading to hernias in the abdomen.
These lesions are due to a variety of causes, the most common being obesity, lack of exercise, multiple pregnancies, frequent weight fluctuations and previous intra-abdominal surgery.
During abdominoplasty, skin and fat are removed from the abdominal area. The body image is therefore greatly improved.
