Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Also known as ABDOMINAL DERMOLIPECTOMY. It is the surgery that shapes the body and abdominal contour, by lifting, advancing, replacing and repairing the elements that make up the anterior abdominal wall: skin, fat, straight and / or oblique muscles, belly button and pubic area.

In certain cases, it is possible to combine it with back and waist liposculpture. Other times, it is better to perform each one at a different surgical time. In any case, it is always important and necessary to leave a drainage system (hemovac) through a small tube for 3 to 5 days.
