The REGGAZZO Clinic

Formed by a multidisciplinary team led by Dr. Marco Aurélio K. Reggazzo, it aims to offer the best of its staff in benefit of the patient.

FLANKPLASTY

FLANKPLASTY is the plastic surgical procedure that treats the flanks. It removes the sagging excess in this part of the body, resulting in a well defined waist in the posterior part of the body. In the anterior part of the body the responsible for the re-definition of the waist is the abdominoplasty. We can say in a rough way that the FLANKPLASTY does in the back of the body what the abdominoplasty does in the front.

The flankplasty is indicated in cases of skin excess, stretch marks and sagging. When there is only local fat, it is treated with liposuction. When there is a combination of local fat and sagging, both procedures are performed: FLANKPLASTY and liposculpture.

Dr. Marco Aurélio K. Reggazzo has been performing a pioneer work in this method of associating both procedures and recently presented a work in the World Congress of ISAPS (International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) in Istambul, Turkey. Since then he has been performing this procedure very often and the results have been highly satisfactory.
