Abdominoplasty, also called abdominal surgery or dermolipectomy, surgically removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the abdominal area, between the navel and the lower abdominal fold (other times from a horizontal cesarean scar). Depending on the needs of each specific patient, the muscles of the abdominal wall can be sutured and tightened. The incision is shaped like a “half moon” (its length will depend on the excess skin and fat that needs to be removed/eliminated).


It lasts approximately two to four hours.


This procedure can also be performed by regional anesthetic blocks performed with the use of local anesthetics, as well as general intravenous anesthesia.


Hospitalization for at least one night is usually required.

Side Effects

Pain and/or tenderness in the lower back and surrounding areas, postoperative swelling, numbness or numbness of the abdominal skin, and the possibility of bruising.


Wound infection, bleeding at the incision or under the skin flap, embolism (a blood clot traveling in the circulation) is infrequent, and pathological scarring (keloids).


The patient will be able to return to her activities within four to six weeks and more strenuous activities, such as physical exercise, in approximately four to six weeks. The scars will fade in color and texture from the third month to a year after the intervention. The patient is required to wear a postoperative compression garment for four weeks.


They will be visible for several years, except if the patient gains weight or if she is a woman, becomes pregnant, or if her lifestyle and eating habits do not improve. The results may vary according to each person.
