Endoscopic Abdominoplasty

An endoscopic abdominoplasty is a specialized procedure that specifically addresses weakened muscles of the abdomen with relatively tight skin.

Endoscopic Abdominoplasty Consultation
At The Graivier Center, we value our personal relationships with our patients. Each patient is treated as an individual, and as such, is given a personal consultation prior to any treatment. Dr. Graivier and his staff will meet with you to help you make decisions regarding which procedure(s) or treatment(s) will result in achieving your aesthetic goals. The consultation will conclude with a discussion about the desired treatment, your expectations, the benefits and risks associated with the treatment and post-treatment recovery.

Endoscopic Abdominoplasty Surgery
Endoscopic abdominoplasty will tighten abdominal muscles and combine with liposuction to remove excess fat. A small amount of excess skin can be removed in the pubic area and around the belly button if necessary.

An endoscopic abdominoplasty is performed using a small camera, called an endoscope, which is attached to small surgical instruments. The surgery can be performed using very small incisions that are easily concealed and usually placed above the pubis or inside of the navel.

The muscles are tightened and sutured through the incision. Liposuction performed during the endoscopic abdominoplasty removes fat, a drain is placed to prevent fluid buildup, and the incision is closed.

Endoscopic Abdominoplasty Recovery
Patients are allowed to do light aerobic exercise, such as walking, approximately seven days following surgery. You are encouraged to refrain from serious exercise for at least four weeks after surgery, though it usually takes up to six weeks to return to your pre-surgery energy level.
