Abdominoplasty / Abdominal surgery

A flat, marked and defined abdomen is the desire of almost every person. These characteristics are lost due to multiple factors such as genetic, hormonal, overweight, pregnancies, etc, which leads to a loss of body harmony, with the presence of a lax abdomen, with excess skin and fat and the presence of stretch marks that can not be eliminated with any aesthetic procedure. For these reasons, many patients seek to return to the desired silhouette through surgeries such as abdominoplasty. In this procedure, by means of an incision that is hidden in the bikini line, this surgery allows to remove the excess of skin and fat from the abdomen and at the same time to tighten the abdominal muscles allowing to fine tune the waist and obtain a flat, firm and sculptural abdomen.
