Sculpt Your Dream Silhouette

Fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty is a meticulous surgical intervention designed to reshape and tighten the abdominal region. This technique is characterized by a unique incision that resembles a fleur-de-lis pattern. Dr. Lukavsky, an esteemed Gold Coast Plastic Surgery expert, specializes in fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty and abdominal sculpting to reveal your dream figure.

What is Fleur-De-Lis Abdominoplasty?

Several factors can lead to stretched abdominal muscles and skin, such as multiple pregnancies, significant weight loss, or aging. If you're looking for a solution, consider fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty in Chicago.

This procedure involves a horizontal incision, like the traditional tummy tuck, and a vertical incision running up the middle of the stomach. This allows more access to the abdominal muscles and a larger amount of skin to be removed, resulting in a tighter waistline.

While this procedure is similar to the extended tummy tuck in that it removes excess skin, there is a notable difference. The extended technique addresses sagging skin that spans to the flanks and lower back, while the fleur de lis technique removes skin in the center of the midsection over the abdominal muscles. This can be especially helpful for patients who have recently experienced significant weight loss and want to reveal their newly slim figures obscured by excess skin.

Fleur-De-Lis Abdominoplasty Tummy Tuck Candidates

If you have a considerable amount of loose skin on your stomach, you may be eligible for a fleur de lis tummy tuck. This surgery is ideal for those who have lost significant weight but still have excess skin in the upper abdomen, which conceals their actual figure.

Keep the following in mind:

  • To undergo this procedure, it's recommended that you are in good health and free from any underlying conditions that could impair your recovery
  • Before and after the surgery, it's essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle to achieve the best results
  • It's crucial to have realistic expectations of what this surgery can accomplish and understand that maintaining a nutritious diet and exercise routine is critical to ensuring long-lasting outcomes

What to Expect During the Fluer-De-Lis Procedure

The Fleur-de-lis tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that requires general anesthesia and can be performed on an outpatient basis. You can generally expect the following:

  • Two incisions are made, one horizontally across the midline near the pubis and one that goes vertically up the abdomen
  • Dr. Lukavsky removes and repositions skin and tissue to gain full access to the abdominal muscles
  • The abdominal muscles are rejoined and tightened for a more firm and toned stomach contour
  • The remaining skin in the waist area over the muscles is tightened, and the excess skin is removed
  • The incisions are closed using dissolvable sutures
  • The treated area is wrapped in a compression garment to aid healing

After the procedure, the midsection will have a new, smooth contour that shows off your underlying true figure.

Recovery After Fleur-De-Lis Abdominoplasty

The recovery following a fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty generally spans about two weeks. During this period, you can anticipate some initial swelling and bruising, which will gradually subside over two to three weeks. Temporary numbness and tightness may also be noticeable, and Dr. Lukavsky may prescribe pain medications to ensure your comfort during the early stages of recovery. While you may feel well enough to return to work within 10-14 days, avoiding strenuous activities for the initial four to six weeks is advisable to ensure optimal healing.

Risks Involved with Fleur-De-Lis Abdominoplasty

While complications are uncommon, as is the case with any surgical procedure, fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty is associated with the following risks:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Changes in skin sensation

To mitigate these risks, selecting an experienced and skilled surgeon is paramount. Dr. Lukavsky's expertise ensures the safety and efficiency of Gold Coast Plastic Surgery's fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty.
