Fleur de lis abdonoplasty, Fleur de lis tummy tuck
Dr. John Anastasatos performed surgery for this patient pictured below.
This patient had gastric bypass surgery and had massive weight loss. This weight loss resulted in considerable skin laxity as you can see. The only way to treat this skin laxity following gastric bypass or lap band surgery is via plastic surgery operations. Sometimes the operations to correct skin laxity after weight loss like this can be done together or in stages.
This operation that you see is called the fleur de lis abdominoplasty. The fleur de lis abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is the preferred operation for many cases following massive weight loss to contour the torso and abdomen. This operation takes care of the excess skin in both the vertical direction and the horizontal direction.
The before and after results are self explanatory. This result that you see is after 6 months thats why the incisions are still pink-red in this patient.
