Fleur-de-Lis abdominoplasty is also known as fleur de lis tummy tuck, a plastic surgery procedure focuses on removing a large amount of excess skin from theabdomen. The surgeon will also remove some targeted fat and repair abdominal muscles during the procedure if this is needed, as with a standard tummy tuck.
A fleur de lis tummy tuck gets its name from the incisions shape. The surgeon removes a panel of skin thats shaped like the three petals of a fleur de lis. The top peak of this panel is near the breastbone, while the farthest peaks at the sides are around the hip bones.
After removing the panel of excess skin, the surgeon shapes the underlying fat and muscle as needed. At this point, the surgeon pulls the remaining skin together for a shapely contour.
