Abdominoplastia: cirurgia plástica para transformar o abdômen

What is abdominoplasty?

This procedure aims to improve the appearance of the abdomen, providing a flatter, firmer and more toned belly.

Abdominoplasty is designed to remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal region , while it can repair and strengthen weakened or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis).


How is abdominoplasty performed?

It is carried out in a hospital environment, under general anesthesia, and it is important to be in good health before carrying out the procedure. The process may vary depending on each patient’s needs and goals, but here are the general steps involved in abdominoplasty:

1. Incision:

The plastic surgeon will make a horizontal incision just above the pubic area. The size and shape of the incision will depend on the extent of correction needed. The surgeon will work carefully to position the incision to minimize the visibility of the resulting scar.

2. Removal of excess fat and skin:

The first step after the incision is the removal of excess fat through liposuction. With the lipo part done, the surgeon will remove excess skin using a dissection technique. These two steps will allow the abdomen to be reshaped.

3. Abdominal muscle repair:

If there is weakening or separation of the abdominal muscles, the surgeon will perform the repair during surgery. The muscles will be sutured, providing a firmer, more toned appearance to the abdomen. This repair often improves the waist contour that has been damaged by muscle separation.

4. Navel repositioning:

In some cases, the belly button may need to be repositioned for an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The surgeon will make a new opening for the belly button in the repositioned skin.

5. Closing incisions:

After the removal of skin, fat, muscle repair, and repositioning of the belly button is complete, the surgeon will carefully close the incisions with sutures.

When is abdominoplasty indicated?

Abdominoplasty is generally indicated for people who have excess skin, sagging and abdominal fat, along with weakening or separation of the abdominal muscles. Common reasons people seek this procedure include:

1. Significant weight loss
2. Pregnancy and childbirth
3. Aging
4. Accumulation of resistant fat in the abdominal region

It is worth noting that each case is unique, and the decision to perform abdominoplasty should be made in consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon. He will evaluate your condition and your aesthetic goals to determine if a tummy tuck is appropriate for you.


Rib remodeling:

Modern and revolutionary technique that can be used to change the waist-to-hip ratio

costal remodeling is a procedure focused on making the body more curvaceous . Part of the lower ribs, also called floating ribs, is reshaped to reduce waist circumference. This process aims to create a more accentuated curvature in the waist region, providing a narrower and more defined silhouette.

The plastic surgeon will make small incisions in the waist area. Then, the excess rib bone is remodeled according to the established surgical plan.

Generally, this type of surgery is considered in specific cases, such as when the patient has a more prominent bone structure in the region of the lower ribs, which contributes to the lack of waist definition, or to the “straight body”, as they say.
