Muscle repair: body lift/tummy tuck

Published: February 28, 2017

When performing a body lift, an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a crucial part of the procedure. The abdominal muscles are sewn together at the midline when performing most tummy tucks, and this is the muscle repair that is being described also in the body lift. When doing other procedures that may be part of the body lift, such as an inner thigh lift, we will suspend the skin/soft tissue to a deeper fascial layer (a layer of strong tissue just superficial to the muscle) , although this is not truly a “muscle repair”.
