Lipoabdominoplasty

Procedure Overview

Definition lipoabdominoplasty is the ultimate body contouring procedure. It reshapes and contours the abdomen by combining liposuction, traditional abdominoplasty with muscle plication, fat transfer, and skin tightening with energy-based devices. Rectus abdominis fat transfer (RAFT) is an innovative surgical technique pioneered in the UK by The Ghanem Clinic, and can also be applied to achieve the absolute athletic result. A combined definition lipoabdominoplasty gained popularity among individuals seeking a more comprehensive single procedure to remove excess abdominal fat, address loose skin, and enhance muscle definition.

The procedure results in a flatter, firmer and more aesthetically pleasing midsection and is ideal for people who have undergone significant weight loss, experienced changes due to pregnancy, or simply wish to enhance their abdominal appearance.

The Procedure

The journey of a combined definition lipoabdominoplasty begins with a thorough consultation between the patient and the plastic surgeon. During this initial meeting, we assess the patient’s overall health, medical history, and aesthetic goals. This personalised approach allows for the development of a tailored surgical plan that takes into consideration the unique characteristics of each individual.

Once the patient is under anaesthesia, we make incisions strategically placed in areas that can be easily concealed, such as along the natural contours of the bikini line. The next step involves the careful separation of the skin from the underlying abdominal muscles, which allows us to access the rectus abdominis muscles. We remove stubborn fat pockets in the abdominal region through liposuction, and this fat is then reinjected into your abdominal muscles to create a more defined and sculpted appearance. Excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is re-draped over the abdomen for a smoother and more contoured look.

The Results

Definition lipoabdominoplasty surgery delivers a natural-looking and harmonious result customised to each patient’s needs. At The Ghanem Clinic, we have formulated a comprehensive patient pathway that allows a safe yet efficient surgical approach. A well-planned peri-operative period incorporates the intervention of a multidisciplinary team and the use of cutting-edge technological support to optimise recovery, minimise the chance of complications and give the best possible outcome. Definition lipoabdominoplasty can be a transformative experience, providing patients not just with enhanced body contours, but also with increased confidence and satisfaction with their body image.
