This plastic surgery procedure addresses both females and males who, because of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, are dissatisfied with their physical appearance. Abdominoplasty offers the best results for people who have a protruding abdomen and / or flabby one caused by significant weight fluctuations, pregnancy, genetic inheritance or aging.
Efficient and effective, this plastic surgery does not replace a healthy lifestyle based on regular physical activity and a balanced diet. Regaining the tonicity and firmness of the abdomen offers more than satisfaction regarding appearance, this aspect having the ability to stimulate increased self-confidence and social skills. Maintaining results after the aesthetic surgery is very important.
The high demand for this type of surgery is the most relevant guarantee for its efficiency and effectiveness.
