Tummy tuck with the Fleur de Lis

Tummy tuck with the Fleur de Lis method is extended abdominoplasty, which is an extended abdominal plastic surgery. It is dedicated to people after high weight loss. It happens that people require abdominoplasty with removal of excess skin and fat not only from around the abdomen, but also from the so-called sides and back. Thanks to the treatment, the flabby side muscles around the hips are improved, not just the appearance of the abdominal wall.

    Tummy tuck with the Fleur de Lis, also called Fleur – de – lis abdominoplasty or fleur de lis tummy tuck, is a very specialized tummy tuck method, typically performed in post – bariatric patients after significant weight loss. It removes skin both horizontally and vertically which creates two separate scars: one horizontal across the lower abdomen and one vertical along the midline, with the final scar resulting in an upside down “T.”  The term fleur-de-lis tummy tuck derives its name from the incision pattern once the two incisions have been partially closed to resemble a three-petal iris flower (“fleur-de-lis”  translates in French to “flower of the lily”).

    The goal of the fleur-de-lis technique is to significantly remove horizontal and vertical skin excess and narrow the waistline to provide the best possible appearance for the patient.
    The fleur-de-lis tuck surgery can be performed on both male and female patients following significant weight loss after bariatric surgery procedures. Patients who are candidates for this treatment will generally have an abdomen that is wider than their hips.

    Fleur-de-lis surgery safely removes skin excess that may otherwise be subject to skin ischemia and necrosis if traditional tummy tuck techniques are used.  Additionally, it is quite common for post-bariatric patients to present with additional skin and soft tissue redundancy to the flanks, back, and buttocks.  In these particular cases, the fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty technique (with or without concurrent liposuction) is designed to extend the scar circumferentially around the body to remove a complete block of tissue in a 360-degree manner. Thanks to the treatment, the flabby side muscles around the hips are improved, not just the appearance of the abdominal wall. Fleur-de-lis body lift is popularized as one of the cornerstone techniques for abdominoplasty in the massive weight loss and post-bariatric patients. It is a highly complicated surgical operation that should only be performed by experienced body lift specialists and the most established  plastic surgeons.

    The candidates for the procedure should be in good general health. There should be no health problems that would pose a risk to the surgery or the recovery process. Please inform your doctor about all medications you are taking and mention any concerns during your medical consultation. All required tests should be performed as prescribed by the physician prior to surgery. It is very important to stop smoking and drinking alcohol before surgery because these substances have a significant negative effect on wound healing. We recommend giving up alcohol and cigarettes for as long as possible before and after the procedure to avoid post operative scars. You should stay fasting 6 hours before the procedure.

    The patient should remain in the hospital 2-3 days after surgery. Swelling and redness gradually disappear after 2-3 weeks after the procedure. A suitable elastic corset should be worn during the day and at night for 3 months. It will allow for proper healing of postoperative wounds. Physical exercises can be performed after 6 weeks. Most of the patients typically feel good enough to begin performing light activities after about 4 weeks, but before returning to any strenuous activity the surgeon should be consulted. A full recovery after a fleur de lis tummy tuck can take between eight and ten weeks, depending on the extent of the surgery and he patient’s overall health.

    During the first weeks after the surgery, it is advisable for patients to avoid physical exertion or heavy lifting, as well as sauna visits, bathing and sunbathing. It is also worth giving up drinking and smoking nicotine-containing products as long as possible. This is important because of the proper healing of wounds after surgery and reducing the likelihood of scars.

    Usually, the surgeon will provide a prescription for antibiotics to mitigate the risk of infection and pain medication to help ease the discomfort.

    People struggling with comorbidities or other health problems must inform their physician during the first qualification consultation. Before the procedure, perform all tests as prescribed by the doctor and follow all recommendations before and after the procedure. Any surgery including tummy tuck with fleur de lis has risks,  they may include: infection or scarring (typically, these will fade over time), hematoma or bleeding (internal bleeding), asymmetry of the abdomen or reactions associated with anesthesia.

    Even though tummy tuck with fleur de lis is a more difficult treatment than typical abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), the proportion of cases with complications is fairly minimal.

    To minimize the risks and consequences associated with vertical abdominoplasty, it is critical to select the best fleur de lis surgeon with the experience and competence to perform the treatment. At KCM Clinic, all surgeons performing tummy tuck with fleur de lis, are highly established and experienced in their field of practice.

    What is the difference between the extensive abdominal plasty of Fleur de Lis and the classic plasty of the abdominal wall?

    What makes the fleur de lis tummy tuck unique is the shape of the incision and the large amount of skin removed. Unlike fleur de lis tummy tuck, standard tummy tuck uses only an incision in the lower abdomen. In this procedure, an eye-shaped flap is removed from the flabby skin of the lower abdomen. While the rest of the skin is pulled down for a slimmer and younger aesthetic effect.
