After giving birth, it is frequent for a woman to present alteration of the components of the abdominal wall such as flaccidity in the muscles, the appearance of stretch marks on the skin and increment of adipose tissue, which makes this procedure the most performed on mothers.
There are two modalities:
- Mini-abdominoplasty: it is an abdominoplasty with tiny incisions and scars, recommended for patients with just muscle flaccidity but no stretch marks.
- Abdominal lipectomy or complete abdominoplasty: right for patients with muscle flaccidity, stretch marks and alterations on the skin.
In both cases, liposculpture on the legs and back region is performed, looking to define the body contour.
