Abdominal Rejuvenation

Before and after BBL to abdominal skin

As the abdomen ages, the following main changes will occur:

  • Pigmentation / sun damage
  • Aging of Skin
  • Lumps and Bumps Appear
  • Abdominal fat may become a problem
  • Stretch marks and loose skin

So the back first need to be assessed to work out which changes are most important to treat.

Pigmentation / sun damage

As we age, especially those with lighter skin tones, we get more sun damage on our abdomen. We get more freckles, solar lentigos and background actinic damage.

These problems are best treated with laser / IPL to improve mainly the colour, but also the texture.

Prevention of these problems is important, with sun avoidance and sunscreen. This can be challenging in the Australian climate

Abdominal skin aging

Abdominal skin goes through the normal process of skin aging, where the skin thins and becomes less elastic. The texture becomes less smooth, with more fine lines and wrinkles. These issues may  be treated with skin boosters, PRP or with fractional laser.

Lumps and bumps on the abdomen

As we age, more lumps and bumps occur on the back. We become less smooth. Seborrhoeic keratoses (old age/senile warts) become common on the abdomen. These are easily treated with single spot erbium laser. Abdomen skin can be made completely smooth again

Abdominal Fat

Liposuction may be required

Sagging abdominal skin

Will require a tummy tuck

Stretch Marks

Will need to be cut out (eg in a tummy tuck)

Or improved by fractional laser and or Skinbooster
