1. preoperative evaluation and marking⁣
2. excision of the lower abdominal skin⁣
3. undermining of her abdominal flap to her costal margins⁣

6. repositioning of the umbilicus⁣
7. liposuction of the flanks ⁣
8. and finally, sewing of the superior and inferior flaps in a layered closure. ⁣

The various steps of an abdominoplasty as shown here is a methodical process that needs to be precisely executed. ⁣

Preoperative evaluation is key, as well as obtaining ideal weight with diet and exercise. ⁣
