The abdomen is the body area that most accumulates fat. But at the DermAge, we can help with this discomfort by performing abdominal surgery. In women, the distention cause by pregnancy separates the abdominal muscles, increasing area deformation.
To have a “plain belly” and without stretches aids to delineate a feminine gracious figure and it is a sign of good physical tonus. The abdominal wall is built basically by three elements: skin, under-cutaneous cellular tissue with subjacent fat and muscle tension.
