Abdominoplasty Principles

  • 1784 Accesses

Abstract

Abdominoplasty principles are those precautions to be taken in the ordinary abdominoplasty patient and not in the patient who has had massive weight loss through diet, disease, or bariatric surgery. The principles are the result of analyzing many malpractice cases with postoperative complications following abdominoplasty and the author’s 45 years of surgical practice.
