Lipoabdominoplasty combines safety, efficacy and aesthetic control when contouring the female silhouette. Preoperative markings are performed with the patient upright and is fundamental to achieving a desired result. The technical details of abdominoplasty include Scarpa fascia preservation of the lower abdomen to aid in healing and lessen seroma formation. From an aesthetic perspective, we believe that a natural soft contour of the abdomen is an important aesthetic goal, rather than a "high definition" defined by an extreme unnatural appearance. For this reason, when we preform liposuction of the abdomen and truck, we tend to be conservative in fat reduction to maintain the natural volume associated with a mature female shape. Our main objective remains obtaining consistent results while minimizing the possibility of complications when combining liposuction with abdominoplasty.
