A ‘Fleur De Lis’ Abdominoplasty is a procedure to reduce the excess skin and fat to rejuvenate the abdomen in women with excess tissue over the upper and lower abdomen. This procedure also tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall and allows for ‘tightening’ in both horizontal and vertical planes.
The degree of excess skin and fat differ in amount and distribution amongst individuals. The choice of technique varies based on each individual patient and is decided after a thorough assessment at the time of your consultation.
The fleur de lis abdominoplasty involves creating both a transverse scar on the lower abdomen/pubis and a midline vertical scar. The skin and fat are lifted off from the muscles, the muscles are tightened and the excess tissues are trimmed. The umbilicus is relocated at a new point on your ‘new tummy’.
This technique addresses the excess tissues in the front of the abdomen but may not treat any excess fat on the flanks. This can be further addressed with liposuction.
