Limited incisions in abdominoplasty.

Author information

Plastic Surgery Division, University of The State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.


Presented here is our experience with a new approach to abdominoplasty using a limited incision with liposuction. The indications and advantages of the proposed technique are discussed. The procedure was performed in 20 consecutive cases. The benefits of the procedure are the resultant natural contour of the abdominal wall and umbilicus, the maintenance of the mons pubis at its original site, and, most importantly, a limited scar.
