Abdominoplasty, woman
Madrid | Zurich

Abdomen and flanks can suffer significant size and shape changes due to weight fluctuations, hormonal condition, age and life-style. Ageing, in particular, causes the skin to gradually loose its elasticity. Abdominoplasty redefines muscle tone, abdomen size and shape and, in many cases, minimises pathologies such as the separation of the belly muscle(diastasis of rectus abdominis muscle), or hernias.

For optimal and aesthetically attractive results, abdominoplasty has to be tailored down to each patient. A wide range of surgical techniques are available, such as: mini-abdominoplasty, hybrid abdominoplasty, complete abdominoplasty combined with liposuction. The aesthetic results thus attained would not be achievable, in many cases, through only physical exercise or a life-style change.

Abdominoplasty surgical techniques and additional interventions

The most appropriate abdominoplasty technique is decided by the patient’s physique and wishes:

Mini-abdominoplasty:  a limited skin and sub-dermal fat resection is performed in the infraumbilical area, with or without an extensive a liposuction.

Umbilical float abdominoplasty: in this procedure, the navel is detached from its base to be adequately repositioned, after the fat and skin removal has been carried out.

Complete abdominoplasty: a maximum resection of abdominal fat and skin is performed, practically eliminating the whole area between navel and pubis and with a belly button reinserted in the correct position.

Hybrid abdominoplasty: this technique is combined with a 360-degree liposuction of  the back and front trunk areas.

Every abdominoplasty intervention sculpts a more balanced and attractive body contour, with beneficial results in the genital area, flanks and back.

The harvested fat after a liposuction can be transferred to other body or facial areas, as macro-fat (body) or micro-fat (face). Intradermal injections of nanofat will significantly improve skin quality and look thanks to its high stem cell concentration levels.

Many of our patients choose to combine abdominoplasty with breast surgery in a single intervention.

Abdominoplasty post-operative care

At Dr. Richard Fakin’s clinics we strive to prevent all discomfort to our patients. For example, we usually perform a transitory paralysation of the local sensitive nerves and of the abdominal muscle fascia, highly minimising any discomfort during the post-operative.

We also provide compression garments to our patients, which should be worn for about 6 weeks.
