ABS

Management of the abdomen (ABS) in post-bariatric patients is of great importance. Not only does the anterior region of the abdomen approach the skin, fat, and abdominal muscles of the area, but also the regions of the pubis, lateral thighs, lower back, and glutes are treated. This procedure is called “lower lift”. It consists of a circumferential incision of the trunk to reposition the tissues of all these areas, placing the scar in the lower part of the abdomen and back so that it can cover even wearing clothes to the hip

Process

It is an extensive procedure, with resection of important amounts of skin and fat, so we expect some loss of blood. It is necessary to be hospitalized for an average of 1 to 2 nights to monitor hemoglobin levels, to gradually start the ambulation until the patient canis able to graduate.

Due to the extension of the surgery, it is necessary to place drains on the pubis. These are removed when there is already little leakage of fluid, to avoid a complication such as the formation of seromas.
