Abdominoplasty Surgery in Malaga

Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck surgery, is a cosmetic surgical technique that aims to remove excess skin and accumulated fat in the lower abdomen. It allows us to tighten the muscles of the abdominal region, even in cases where the skin is stretched, such as after pregnancy.

Often, women who have experienced pregnancies tend to have a separation of these muscles (rectus diastasis) and a consequent loss of abdominal firmness. In specific cases, as with slim individuals who have excess skin below the navel, a miniabdominoplasty can be performed. This procedure leaves a horizontal scar above the pubic area, achieving muscle tightening in the abdominal region as well.

Aesthetic and Abdominoplasty Surgery in Malaga

Abdominoplasty or abdominal lipectomy involves a surgical procedure in which the skin and fat of the abdomen are detached and removed through a small incision in the suprapubic fold (above the pubic area). This type of incision ensures that the scar is not prominent and is concealed by underwear. The length of this incision depends on the patient’s skin laxity.

This procedure results in a narrowing of the waist and an improvement in overall body contour. In most cases, Dr. Javier Collado combines this surgery with other techniques such as flank liposculpture and upper abdominal liposuction to achieve highly satisfactory results.
