What Is Fleur de lis Abdominoplasty?

Fleur de lis abdominoplasty implies the procedure of removing the sagging skin below the umbilicus. Sagging excess skin and fat tissue can be restored to non-deformed form only if the procedure is performed with appropriate methods. Abdominoplasty also involves repairing the loosening in anterior abdominal wall with certain procedures.

Reasons of sagging in abdominal skin include:

  • Rapid weight gain and loss,
  • Wrong diet practices after childbearing,
  • Sagging due to genetic factors.
Abdominal skin loosens due to above mentioned reasons. Loosened abdominal muscles will lead to an unpleasant appearance. Patients cannot easily wear skirts and bikinis due to such complaints. Fleur de lis abdominoplasty enables prevention of intense sagging and sweating. Certain symptoms, such as skin wounds and fungal infections, may likely develop over time. The procedure should be performed by a specialist physician in order to prevent simple deformities.

How Is Fleur de lis Abdominoplasty Performed?

Surgical procedures are performed with various methods. The techniques that we perform during Fleur de lis abdominoplasty are decided in the light of detailed examinations performed by our physician. Results of the examination draw a roadmap for the procedure. Radiological images that we acquire at different times also identify the treatment process.

Methods of the procedure can be broadly listed as follows:

  • Incisions are extended from the Caesarean section to both sides of the belly.
  • Cracked skin around the belly button is removed.
  • The sagging skin located above the belly button is stretched downwards.
  • In some cases, sagging or loosening is associated with fat accumulation. Excess fat in tummy is removed with liposuction.
  • Membranes of abdominal wall around the tummy are restored to original form with sling sutures during the procedure.
  • Sutures are placed with aesthetic suturing methods during the procedure. Aesthetic suturing methods eliminate the unpleasant appearance.

The ability to eliminate the sagging around the tummy rules out the problems caused by excessive changes in bodyweight. People may suffer same problems again if they lose or gain weight quickly after the procedure or as a result of pregnancy.

More definite and healthy results are obtained when the procedure is combined with liposuction. Surgery generally lasts for 3 hours and patients should stay at hospital for 1 or 2 days.

In full abdominoplasty surgeries, the skin tightens. The procedure is performed such that the scar remains under bikini line. Therefore, it is necessary to reposition the belly button. Abdominoplasty is performed both below and above the belly button and it is preferred to remove excess skin and subcutaneous fat tissue. The muscles of the tummy are stretched. The belly button is re-positioned during the procedure.

Smokers should quit smoking 1 to 2 days before the abdominoplasty. However, diets should be planned under supervision of specialist physicians. A milder diet should be followed before the surgery.
