Abdominoplasty is surgery that involves removing excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen. With this intervention is also achieved a strengthening of the abdominal wall musculature. This intervention is performed under general anesthesia, through an incision in the pubic area and the navel.
Because of the incision, a more or less large scar is left in the lower abdomen, depending on the extent of the area to be treated. The scar can be treated later with laser treatments.
