                  BEFORE YOU CONSIDER... KNOW THE FACTS                                                                              
Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that helps to flatten and shape the abdomen and waist by bringing the abdominal muscles to a midline, more anatomically sound, strong position and by simultaneously removing excess skin and fat. Sometimes after pregnancy or significant weight loss, abdominal muscles assume a more separated, weaker position and the overlying skin becomes lax or redundant. 

The procedure entails a low abdominal incision that spans the hips. Because sagging skin will be pulled down over the abdomen before it is removed, it may be necessary to release the navel from its surrounding skin and bring it out through a new skin opening.

There are several considerations which distinguish a superior result from a mediocre result. These considerations essentially represent attention to detail and consist of:

Location Of The Incision
  • The incision should be positioned so that the resultant line of closure is concealed beneath all garments inclusive of swimwear and lingerie.
Design Of The Incision
  • The incision should be designed so that the resultant line of closure has a pleasing, aesthetic flow, most often curvilinear, with symmetry from side to side.
The Use Of Quilting Sutures
  • One of the most frequent untoward sequelae of this procedure is fluid accumulation in the potential space created between the layer of skin and underlying musculature. Quilting sutures, described by a South American plastic surgeon, are dissolvable sutures which essentially obliterate this potential space and are quite effective in preventing this accumulation.
Quality And Uniformity Of The Resultant Line Of Closure
  • The resultant line of closure should be finely linear and without irregularity.
Attention To The Aesthetics Of The Umbilicus
  • The final appearance of the umbilicus should not be flat nor amorphous but rather taught with a hood above and a relative valley below.
