It is a procedure indicated in patients with sagging skin and excess abdominal fat, mainly in the infra-umbilical region. It is mostly recommended in patients who have been through pregnancies or those who have experienced massive weight loss and as a result present a weakening or diastasis (separation) of the abdominal muscles. This surgery is usually accompanied by liposuction to achieve a more harmonious body contour. The appearance of edema and lack or loss of skin sensation below the navel is normal, but both heal over time. Lymphatic drainage massages are recommended. The final results are observed within 6 to 12 months. It is important to note that the extent of the scar is directly proportional to the skin´s excess flaccidity.
