Dissection of the Upper Abdomen

■ Following mobilization of the cutaneous/fatty flap, dissection is continued in a lateral direction as far as the xiphoid process and the costal arch (forming the waist).

■ The lateral dissection can be performed deeply and bluntly. To do this, a moist compress should be wrapped around the right middle and index fingers and the entire lateral section, from the lateral costal arch to the iliac crest, can thus be pushed away bluntly.
