Re-tensioning of the abdomen with refinement and retightening of the waistline (liposuction)*
Under general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia (the lower part of the body is numbed).
A liposuction to reduce the volume of hip and belly is performed first.
Then muscles and skin are retightened.
Short term: hematoma, phlebitis, pulmonary embolism, necrosis (smoking cessation imperative one month before surgery).
Medium and long term:
Insensitivity of the abdominal skin above the scar.
The scar is long and visible. It will evolve over several months. It should be massaged in the postoperative and silicone dressings should be applied to flatten them.
