Abdominal flaws are especially distressing to patients. The advent of liposuction has transformed body contouring surgery. It allows the extent of the procedures as well as the residual scars to be reduced. To optimise the procedure, the flaws should be analysed, and in particular various parameters should be taken into account: the condition of the skin, extent of the excess adipose tissue, tone of the abdominal muscles, and overall morphology of the patient. In this way the surgeon will be able to apply the technique best suited, depending on the case to be treated. In fact, there is no universal technique; on the contrary, every case requires its own technique.
However, you should be aware that three procedures will be considered for surgical correction of the abdominal wall: abdominal liposuction (alone), abdominal contouring (abdominoplasty) or a body lift.
