Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure and whose purpose is to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen and strengthen the abdominal wall musculature. This procedure drastically reduces the bulging aspect of the abdomen.
This surgery is especially useful in women who have had several pregnancies, after which the skin and abdominal muscles have relaxed and have not recovered their initial tone and in patients who have lost a lot of weight resulting in flaccidity in the abdominal wall as well as a excess of skin. In old people, it can also improve the loss of skin elasticity, a situation frequently related to moderate obesity.
Dr. Padilla always combines this procedure with a lipomolding of the body contour with liposuction assisted by the Jet Water system (WAL) and with lipotransference (EVL) to the areas where the patients require it in order to achieve harmonic, natural and much more satisfactory results for his patients and not just a simple removal of excess abdominal skin.
It is also common to associate this procedure with breast surgery in the same session to improve the effects caused by pregnancy, a procedure commonly known as mommy makeover.
