I couldn't have chosen a better clinic. The fact it was 65% cheaper than the prices I'd been quoted the in UK and the extra help they provide is just incredible. My surgery went perfectly and they removed 10lbs of skin from my stomach and waist. I had everything I needed in my hospital room and the nurses are so attentive, kind and available 24 hours a day.

Before and after surgery I felt like I was very well taken care of! The nurses were very compassionate, and made sure I had what I needed - and that it went well! I don't think I've experienced that it's so good in Norwegian hospitals even..I will definitely recommend the clinic further, if anyone is considering it, but is insecure.

These people went above and beyond, soooo much more polite than UK surgeons, these people actually care about how you are, check up on you and answer all the questions you have. After check up a week later, my surgeon carried my luggage to my taxi. Fussy in ways you'll never know and if ever the need for surgery again, I'll go there. Anyone I know, I'll recommend over any others I've heard of.

Surgery went good and I was so happy with my stay at the clinic with extremely helpful and friendly nurses caring for me 24/7. The clinic was so fresh and I was served delicious meals. Another bonus was their transportation team who picked me up/dropped me off at the airport, back and forth from the hotel to the clinic etc. It was great not having to worry about any logistics, since it was all taken care of.

What is Fleur de Lis tummy tuck?

As elastic as our skin is, its biomechanical properties are limited. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that abdominal contour deformities are the most common complaint among massive weight loss patients wishing to undergo plastic surgery. Fleur-de-Lis abdominoplasty, also known as FDL tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure in which excess abdominal fat is removed and loose skin is tightened to restore a natural body shape. FDL tummy tuck involves both horizontal and vertical incisions in the abdominal area for a long-lasting post-operative effect.

Who is a proper candidate for FDL abdominoplasty?

In this case, tummy tuck is a real game changer that not only restores the shape and strength of the abdomen but also helps to regain a beautifully balanced waistline. However, as with all body-contouring procedures, a candidate for FDL must be aware of permanent scarring that is inevitably seen in the abdominal area where the vertical and horizontal incisions are made. Moreover, as a relatively large area of the abdomen is exposed during the procedure, a greater risk of infection and a higher complication rate regarding wound healing may be observed in those patients with pre-existing medical comorbidities, such as smoking, diabetes, immune compromise, etc. On the whole, to properly evaluate one’s eligibility for FDL tummy tuck, a plastic surgeon should be consulted.

Before After

Preparation for surgery 

Proper preparation for FDL abdominoplasty is a vital part of the procedure itself as it determines the success of the operation and the quality of recovery after it.
Here are some major pre-surgery guidelines that should be followed:

Practice a healthy lifestyle. Exercising regularly, having your diet balanced and staying hydrated will strengthen your body and recovery after the surgery will be faster.

Avoid using alcohol and stop smoking at least 6 weeksbefore the procedure. It should be emphasized that reduced smoking and alcohol consumption are not acceptable and may cast doubt on one’s eligibility for the surgery.

Stop taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and other blood thinners at least 14 days prior to the surgery as they may induce bleeding during the procedure.

Consult a plastic surgeon about your allergies, previous surgeries, daily medications and significant medical conditions. It is particularly important to inform your doctor about any medical history of hernias in the abdominal area, as it may have an impact on choosing the right surgical strategy. If you have any pre-existing conditions that require daily usage of drugs, your operating surgeon should be informed about it.

Follow your specific pre-operative instructions as they may vary depending on your medical history.

FDL tummy tuck vs. Full tummy tuck

FDL tummy tuck is an advanced version of a classical abdominoplasty, better known as full tummy tuck, and it is specifically adapted for those who have experienced a significant weight loss, as the skin is tightened not only in horizontal, but also in vertical way for a notably flatter and firmer abdomen. The major difference between FDL and full tummy tuck lies in the surgery technique that is determined by a distinct incision pattern. When standard abdominoplasty is performed, there is essentially one major incision made in the area between a belly button and pubic region. In more detail, a large transverse incision crosses the abdomen reaching the uppermost parts of hip bone on both sides. As for Fleur-de-lis tummy tuck, both vertical and horizontal resections are required. The horizontal incision is performed first as with classical transverse tuck. Once tissue is excised in that way, a vertical incision, crossing the belly button, is extended up to a level just below the end of a breastbone. When choosing between FDL and full tummy tuck it is important to find out which procedure may fully meet one’s expectations depending on patient’s personal anatomical characteristics. Therefore a plastic surgeon should be consulted.

Recovery after FDL surgery

Recovery after FDL tummy tuck takes time and patience for it to be successful.

It takes about 6-8 weeks to recover. During that time an abdominal binder should be worn to support the tissues and avoid fluid retention.

It is important to stay at least minimally active during the first 2 weeks. Short walks for a few minutes several times a day positively affect blood circulation and so the healing process speeds up.

After the first two weeks it is recommended to begin a daily routine of light exercise, if the operating surgeon has not advised otherwise.

Bruising and swelling in the abdominal area may be present up to 4 weeks as an indication of a local inflammatory response to surgery. If significant swelling is present for a longer time, a doctor should be consulted.

Tummy tuck scars are usually most visible in the first 9-12 months after surgery. Later on the color fades and the surface flattens..

In some rare cases, the wound might get infected or an abnormal blood accumulation, also known as hematoma, may form. To avoid possible skin and tissue damage, the surgeon must be informed about it as soon as possible.

Could FDL be combined with other surgeries?

There are several therapeutic and cosmetic procedures that could be performed together with FDL tummy tuck. Breast enlargement and/or breast lift is the most common one. If a patient has a medical record of a pre-existing ventral or umbilical hernia, one may have it repaired at the same time, if there are no other contraindications and the plastic surgeon has not advised otherwise.

After FDL surgery 

When FDL abdominoplasty is performed, a few more things should be taken into consideration in order to ensure a smooth recovery:

It is required to keep the incision sites dry and clean. Usually the patient can take a shower a few days after the procedure. Later on patients are highly encouraged to maintain their personal hygiene routine or adjust it to the doctor‘s recommendations.

Loose fitting clothes are advised for patient convenience as they are easier to put on and off.

It is normal to feel pain in the abdominal region in the first 2-4 weeks after surgery. It should be managed with painkillers personally prescribed by the operating doctor.

Patients are highly discouraged from using tobacco products and alcohol during the recovery time as it may result in excessive blood clotting and weaken the immune system.
