What is circumferential Abdominoplasty exactly?

It is well suited for patients who have lost a lot of weight in the past few weeks.
The surgery fixes everything a conventional tummy tuck does and has the additional benefit of eliminating extra lower back skin and raising the buttocks.
As far as the procedural steps are concerned, at first, surgeons make a pretty longer incision. In general, this incision is extended all the way to the midline of the back. After creating an incision, he removes the skin from the abdomen as well as the back.
Generally, at the end of the circumferential abdominoplasty, the surgical drain is placed in the mid-section. It helps to remove pus, fluids, or blood from the wounds. And note that, drain removal is usually scheduled two to three weeks after the operation so the drains certainly can affect your life, work, and appearance.
