It fuses together two common plastic surgery procedures into one: liposuction and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).
Lipoabdominoplasty Procedure (Saldanha's Technique), is a relatively new technique in which a combination of liposuction with mini tummy tuck (lipoabdominoplasty) is carried out to deal with abdominal excess fat and loose skin. After aggressive liposuction of the abdomen part or total skin below the belly button (umbilicus) is removed and some undermining of the skin above the belly button is maade at the operation before tightening of the underlying abdominal muscles, then the skin will be closed. During the operation, blood vessels, nerves and lymphatic are preserved. Therefore, in carefully selected cases, lipoabdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) produces more satistactory results than those other methods.
