For many overweight patients losing weight is the first phase of their total body transformation, then comes the excess skin after the massive weight loss. Although you can lose weight yourself, that isn't the case with excess skin.

You will most likely need surgical intervention to remove the excess skin. A tummy tuck is an ideal procedure to remove loose skin around the abdominal area. But fleur de lis tummy tuck is considered a more effective procedure for patients with excess skin around the upper abdominal area.

What Is Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck?

Fleur de lis tummy tuck (FDL) is an invasive surgical procedure that helps patients to remove the excess skin in the upper and lower abdominal areas. The surgeon will create a horizontal incision from hip to hip and an additional vertical incision below the breast to the pubic area.

The cross-shaped incision helps the surgeon to remove a large amount of skin and repair the underlying muscles. Most doctors recommend you massage the incision areas after the surgery to reduce fleur de lis tummy tuck scar.

Who Can Have FDL Tummy Tuck?

You're an ideal patient for FDL tummy tuck if:

  • Your body weight is stable
  • Struggling with excess skin in the upper and lower stomach area. 
  • Have realistic expectations
  • You're a non-smoker and not diagnosed with severe illness 

Also, it is vital to remember FDL tummy tuck isn't a weight loss surgery; the procedure comes after a massive weight loss transformation. 

Fleur De Lis Abdominoplasty Treatment Duration

Typical fleur de lis abdominoplasty treatment takes 2 - 3 hours without complications.

Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Complications

Some common side effects after FDL tummy tuck include:

  • numbness, bruising, and swelling, especially around the scar line 
  • Infection
  • Hematoma
  • Delayed healing
  • Skin necrosis
  • Skin loss
  • Seroma formation and thickened scar.

Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Recovery

Expect to feel dizzy and disorientated immediately after the procedure; it is a side effect of the anesthesia. You will feel mild pain in the first week, but the prescribed painkillers will mitigate the pain. 

It would help if you surrounded yourself with a good support system (family and friends) to look after you.

Two weeks is the typical period you will need to feel normal; during this period, you will wear a compressing garment to enhance the final surgery results. You will need to take two weeks off work and expect to return to light exercise after 6 - 8 weeks.

Fleur De Lys Procedure Success Rate

Most patients report a satisfactory rate of 85% after the fleur de lis tummy tuck healed.

How Does The Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Procedure Work?

An incision is made just above the pubic region, and you will need to discuss the length of your scar at a consultation. A vertical line is drawn down the middle of the abdomen, and skin is excised. 

The skin is separated from the underlying tissue from the pubic region upwards. The extent of dissection will vary from patient to patient. 

The abdominal wall is tightened, and the tummy button is relocated. Excess fat and skin are removed. The incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches, and the skin is repositioned. It is unusual to require drains, and a compressive dressing is almost always needed.

What Is The Difference Between Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Vs. Regular Tummy Tuck?

There are two main differences between the classic tummy tuck procedure and fleur de lis tummy tuck:

  • Fleur de lis tummy tuck helps to remove excess skin from a wider area (upper and lower abdominal)
  • Fleur de lis tummy tuck has vertical and horizontal incisions that intersect. The purpose is to remove the skin from the upper stomach (below the breast) area, which a standard tummy tuck procedure can't reach. 

What To Expect After Fleur De Lis Abdominoplasty Treatment? 

  • Avoid strenuous activities during the first week after the procedure 
  • Expect mild pain around the incision area. 
  • You will need to wear a fleur de lis tummy tuck compression garment for 4 - 6 weeks during your recovery 
  • You can return to exercise after 6 - 8 weeks 
  • It would help if you massaged the incision areas, which will help improve the appearance of the scar.
  • Follow your doctor's instructions for the best possible outcome.  

How To Prepare For FDL Abdominoplasty Surgery? 

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin and any other medication that causes blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.
  • Avoid smoking before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So it would be best if you did not take alcohol before surgery.
  • Follow your doctor-prescribed medication that adjusts your current medicines.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended flymedi.com. Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
