FULL AND MINI ABDOMINOPLASTY
During an abdominoplasty, any excess skin and adipose tissue that causes unsightly folds and sagging is surgically removed from the abdomen. In the severest of cases, an “apron” of excess skin may droop over the pubic area. Choose from a traditional (full) or a mini abdominoplasty; the latter is indicated for less severe defects. In the former, the scar will extend from hip-to-hip; in the latter, it is shorter. Any existing abdominal hernias can also be repaired during the surgery and the rectus abdominis muscles can be drawn closer together and sutured. Abdominoplasty takes place under general anaesthesia.
