What is Fleur de lis Abdominoplasty?

Fleur de lis abdominoplasty is a special type of postbariatric surgery meaning lily flower in French language. It is called as such since the tissue removed during surgery looks like a flower.

The operation which we frequently apply in excess weight loss is a technique we utilize as an aid in body shaping surgeries. We prefer tummy tuck and back lift surgeries to give better results most of the time.

Causes of sagging in the abdomen are based on following reasons:

  • Rapid weight loss-gain,
  • Wrong diet practices after birth,
  • Genetic structure.

Laxity occurs in the abdominal skin due to these reasons. Relaxation of the abdominal muscles form an unpleasant appearance.  It becomes difficult for patients to wear skirts and bikinis as a result of these complaints. Fleur de lis abdominoplasty allows you to prevent excessive sagging and sweating. Symptoms like skin sores and fungal infections may occur in later periods. The procedure should be conucted by a specialist doctor witha view to prevent simple deformities.

How Is Fleur de lis Abdominoplasty Performed?

Surgical operations are conducted in various ways. After detailed examinations your doctor decides on the techniques to be performed during the operation. The results maintained after the examination are a roadmap for how to proceed. Radiologic images taken at different times also determine how the treatment process will be applied.

The ways in which the operation is performed generally have the following order:

  • Lines are drawn from the area called cesarean section to the sides.
  • Cracked parts in the belly button area are removed.
  • The sagging area in the upper part of the belly button is pulled down.
  • In some cases, fattening is also seen in addition to the sagging problem. Excess fat in the abdomen is removed by liposuction.
  • During the procedure, the membranes of the abdominal wall around the abdomen are restored to their former appearance with the help of a suture.
  • The sutures thrown during the surgery are stitched with aesthetic suture methods. Aesthetic suture methods eliminate the unpleasant appearance.

Elimination of sagging around the abdominal region eliminates the problems caused by excessive weight gain and loss. As a result of rapid weight gain or loss after the procedure or pregnancy, people may experience the same problems again.

To Whom Is Fleur de lis Abdominoplasty Applied?

Excess fat and sagging skin in the abdomen is removed by virtue of Fleur de lis abdominoplasty operation. The process of removing the skin and shaping this region is applied to people with weakened abdominal profile. By tightening the muscles in the abdominal region, the abdominal circumference becomes more dense and tense.

Losing excess weight and applying wrong diets are among the main causes of sagging. Exercise and diet practices can provide you with a flat and tight stomach in the long run. Improper application of these methods causes the sagging in your abdominal area to gain an unpleasant appearance. In cases where exercise and diet alone are not enough, tummy tuck surgery gives the clearest results. Cracks in the navel area after pregnancy are restored with a surgical operation. Abdominal stretching operations are applied to following people:

  • People who experience sagging due to aging,
  • People who experience sagging due to genetic factors,
  • People who underwent surgery after pregnancy,
  • People who have history of irregular weight gain and loss.

The procedure should not be seen as a weight loss surgery. The aim of the operation is to prevent sagging that occurs after rapid weight gain and loss.

What Should Be Done Before Fleur de lis Abdominoplasty?

Fleur de lis abdominoplasty procedure is applied to the abdominal region which cannot be lifted by diet. It is preferred for the correction of adipose tissue in the areas towards the back on the sides. When applied together with liposuction, clearer and healthier results are obtained. The operation time usually takes 3 hours and patients need to stay in the hospital for 1 or 2 days.

In full tummy tuck operations, the skin takes a taut shape. It is planned to remain within the bikini trace. Therefore, the navel location needs to be re-arranged. Abdominoplasty, which is applied both below and above the belly button, is preferred for removing excess skin and subcutaneous adipose tissue. The muscles around the abdominal tissue are tightened. During the procedure, the location of the belly button is changed.

Before tummy tuck surgery, smokers should quit 1-2 days before. However, the diets applied should be arranged in the presence of a specialist doctor. A lighter diet should be applied before the operation.

Things to Know After Fleur de lis Abdominoplasty

After the tummy tuck surgery heals, a dressing is applied over the suture line. A taut bandage is applied to the dressing area. Using a bandage or corset allows the edema to be resolved faster. However, the use of a corset supports the abdominal region during recovery.

The use of drains prevents excess blood formation due to the Fleur de lis abdominoplasty surgical procedure. It prevents blood and fluids from accumulating in the body at the same time. It provides rapid ejection. After the surgery, the drains used are not removed after a few days. For the first few days, it is necessary to stand fully upright. After an average of 2 or 3 weeks, the early results of the surgery are seen. Abdominoplasty is considered one of the most successful operations in the field of plastic surgery. When the early-term results are examined, more satisfactory results are obtained.

Having different operations in the long term may adversely affect the success of tummy tuck surgery.
