Dermolipectomy is a procedure that removes excess skin, fat and flaccidity from any part of the body with the purpose of correcting distended abdomens, saggy arms, flabby legs etc.
Removes excess skin
Smoother and firmer skin
Removes fat (lipo-dermolipectomy)
Dermolipectomy in the abdominal área is more frequent, but it is also usual to perform this intervention to correct other areas such as arms and legs affected by excessive weight loss or the simple passage of time. We talk about abdominal dermolipectomy or abdominoplasty when the removal of excess skin and fat is performed on the abdomen area. We call brachioplasty, or dermolipectomy in arms, to the intervention to the purpose of removing the excess skin on the inside and the back of the arm and Curoplasty, or dermolipectomy of the thighs, when flaccidity is eliminated in them through the tensioning of the inner part of the thigh.
It is also very common to treat several areas in the same intervention with the aim of achieving an aesthetic improvement to the whole body. Therefore, the duration of the procedure, hospital stay and the anesthesia required will depend on the part of the body to be treated.
Type of treatment: surgical.
Lenght of procedure: from 2 to 5 hours*.
Hospitalisation: 1 to 2 nights*.
Recovery: 1 to 3 weeks*.
*Will depend on the area or areas treated
During the first few days the area will be inflamed and the patient will feel discomfort or pain, they will lessen with prescribed medication. Normally you will stay in hospital for 1 or 2 days. There will be a few external stitches to the skin which are removed after 5 to 7 days, and it is not necessary to remove the internal stitches. A return to work usually occurs between 5 and 15 days depending, as we said of the extent of the operation performed.
Big aesthetic improvement to the area
