The modern lipoabdominoplasty

Chapter

Abstract

  • Current abdominal contouring procedures consist of suction-assisted lipectomy, dermolipectomy, musculoaponeurotic plication or some combination of these approaches. Ideally, this results in sufficient reduction of subcutaneous adipose tissue volume, maximum resection of excess skin and tightening of musculoaponeurotic laxity to create an aesthetic contour of the abdominal wall. As with all aesthetic surgical procedures, the goals of abdominal contouring surgery are to maximize the aesthetic outcome, reduce recovery and minimize morbidity. © 2006 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
