Reverse abdominoplasty is a procedure indicated when skin laxity is confined largely to the upper abdomen and a tight cleavage of the breasts is present. It is a powerful procedure for lengthening and rejuvenating the abdomen and is ideally combined with a breast lift and augmentation.
The extra tissues of the upper abdomen can be used to increase the breast volume with natural skin and fat thereby avoiding an implant for volume improvement. Reverse abdominoplasty enables a resetting of the breast position on the chest raising a low breast and improving the length and aesthetics of both breasts and abdomen.
Most patients are better suited to a conventional abdominoplasty with the scar located in the lower abdomen.
