Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure in which excess fat and skin are removed and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles, creating a smoother and more toned abdominal profile.
Having a flat and toned abdomen is a common goal among the population. However, sometimes physical exercise and weight control are not enough to achieve this goal. Factors such as pregnancy, aging, significant fluctuations in weight, heredity and previous surgeries can contribute to excess tissue in the abdominal region.
What is the difference between abdominoplasty and liposuction? While liposuction is used in situations of excess fat, abdominoplasty is a more complex surgical intervention that allows for greater changes. Although abdominoplasty makes it possible to reduce weight, its main purpose is aesthetics, not the elimination of pounds, allowing good results to be obtained with little tissue removal.
