The patients who go to a cosmetic surgeon may not have the same problems; therefore their goals are not necessarily identical. For this reason, there are various methods for abdominoplasty operations according to the goals and needs of different patients.
Depending on the patient׳s aim and taking in to account the minimized unpleasant natural consequences, the surgeon chooses an appropriate technique. The abdominoplasty techniques can be classified as follows:
- Complete abdominoplasty
- Expanded abdominoplasty
- Mini Abdominoplasty (Mini Tummy tuck)
- Floating abdominoplasty
- Fleur-De-Lis abdominoplasty
- Reverse abdominoplasty
In this article, we will review the Fleur-De-Lis abdominoplasty. Stay with us.
What is Fleur-De-Lis abdominoplasty?
The name of this technique is derived from the shape drawn on the abdomen before surgery, which is similar to a French symbol.
This procedure requires more than complete abdominoplasty surgery. In this operation, excess skin and fat in the lower abdomen, the center of the abdomen, and the ribs to the pubic area are removed and the muscles of the abdomen are tightened.
This operation is designed for patients who have lost a lot of weight. Fleur-De-Lis abdominoplasty is a procedure that covers the widest range:
In this method, just like other methods, an incision is made above the pubic area. The larger the incision, the more fat, and skin can be removed. You can talk about this in detail in consultation with your doctor.
A vertical line is drawn toward the center of the abdomen, and the skin is removed on either side to form a triangular shape.
From the pubic area upwards, the skin separates from the muscle layer. The extent of this action depends on the goals and decisions you made with your doctor.
The abdominal wall is then stretched and contracted, and the new position of the umbilicus is determined.
Finally, the position of the skin is determined and the wounds are closed.
Because this technique is designed to remove large amounts of excess skin due to the weight loss, its scar is larger than all other abdominoplasty procedures.
