Abstract :

When liposuction is used for body contouring most of the time, the final cosmetic results are excellent. However, a problem associated with abdominal liposuction is the poor skin retraction just above the umbilicus. The result is loose skin around the umbilicus which is an aesthetic challenge for this area. This happens despite the fact that after liposuction, patients are wearing a compressive garment with the express purpose of helping with the skin retraction. To overcome this problem and to achieve a smooth belly button, we propose the use of a new device (patent pending) Post Liposuction Umbilical Support (P.L.U.S.). The P.L.U.S. device applied over the umbilical area after surgery and during the convalescence will create equal radial pressure over the skin in peri-umbilical area, facilitating uniform skin retraction, better cosmetic surgery results and satisfied patients and physicians.
