2 tissue, it may be beneficial to perform an abdominoplasty to improve the functional and aesthetic result. In the abdominoplasty, the surplus section of abdominal skin is removed with the attached subcutaneous adipose tissue. In a few cases, resection of the infraumbilical surplus tissue will be sufficient, but usually a complete abdominoplasty with umbilical translocation must be performed to achieve optimal results. In this procedure, tightening of the periumbilical area is also extremely significant, for example, with extreme fold formation following pregnancies. Rarely, there is also slackening of the abdominal muscles. This should be treated prior to tightening of the abdominal wall (e.g., by physiotherapy).
The patient's skin type and age play an important part in this operation. In many cases, it is not possible to remove all the folds and striae and this must be explained to the patient. Furthermore, female patients must avoid pregnancy in the foreseeable future. It is not necessary to achieve a specific weight for this procedure, but a few conditions relating to this should be fulfilled. The body weight should have stabilized several months before the procedure, and this should be at a level the patient can maintain after the procedure.
