What is a Fleur-De-Lis Tummy Tuck?

A fleur-de-lis tummy tuck achieves similar results as a full tummy tuck but focuses on removing excess skin from the front of the abdomen. This technique tightens skin both horizontally and vertically, leaving a scar resembling the shape of the French fleur-de-lis emblem. During this procedure, Dr. Angelina will create a horizontal incision above the pubic area (like in a full tummy tuck) and an additional vertical incision down the middle of the abdomen.

Types of Tummy Tuck

Who Is A Candidate For A Fleur-De-Lis Abdominoplasty?

  • Women who have a significant amount of loose skin on their belly resulting from a pregnancy;
  • People who have lost or experienced substantial fluctuations in weight;
  • Those in general good health;
  • Non-smokers;
  • Individuals who have realistic expectations of the surgery and the possible results. (Ask Dr. Angelina to show you some fleur-de-lis tummy tuck before and after pictures.)

You are not a suitable candidate for a fleur de lis tummy tuck if you have loose skin that encompasses your entire torso, are not close to your ideal weight, or plan to become pregnant in the future.

Fleur-de-lis vs. Regular Tummy Tuck

Benefits icon

A fleur-de-lis tummy tuck features an incision that looks like the letter T flipped upside down and is used to remove a large amount of loose skin that has accumulated around the center of the abdomen.

Benefits icon

A full or regular tummy tuck targets the upper and lower abdomen, removing a moderate amount of loose skin and repairing all underlying abdominal muscles with an incision that runs between the hips along the bikini line.

Sometimes, to provide the amount of correction required, an additional incision is needed that runs vertically from the pubic bone to the navel. An extended fleur de lis tummy tuck utilizes a longer incision along the pubic bone so the surgeon can remove loose skin and tissue from the flanks.

Procedure Steps


The patient is given general anesthesia, ensuring they are asleep throughout the surgery.


Dr. Angelina carefully makes a small incision to detach the belly button, enabling her to excise the loose skin around it so the results look natural.


Next, Dr. Angelina will make a vertical incision down the center of the abdomen, remove the loose skin, tighten or repair any loose or torn abdominal muscles, and then close the incision. She typically uses Vaser liposuction to eliminate excess fat and prepare the skin for removal, which also helps to control bleeding during the procedure.


At this point, she will create another incision that runs horizontally above the pubic area, much like the incision used in a full tummy tuck, stretching between the hips.


She will remove the loose skin, pull the remaining skin tight, and stitch it in place. For patients with stretch marks, the good news is that these are often removed during this process. Next, with precision and meticulous skill, she will reposition or create a new belly button to ensure a natural appearance.


Surgical drains may be used at the incision site to manage swelling, and the incisions covered with surgical dressings. A compression garment is then placed on the patient to reduce bruising, swelling, and fluid accumulation and to aid in shaping the body. Patients will wear this garment for about six weeks, or for a length of time set by Dr. Angelina.


Patients usually stay between 1 and 3 nights in the hospital before being sent home to complete their recovery.

Before And After

There is nothing more inspirational than seeing the transformation that occurs when comparing fleur de lis tummy tuck before and after pictures. This surgery can be life-altering for many who have struggled with excess fat and skin that has pooled around their belly. Sometimes, these issues prevent their clothing from fitting properly, and having this loose skin removed often boosts their self-esteem.

You will notice in these pictures, vertical tummy tuck scars that are unavoidable when undergoing a fleur de lis abdominoplasty. The good news is that with proper care, these scars will fade over time and will be covered by most clothing options.

Before and After Fleur de Lis Tummy Tuck


Fleur de lis abdominoplasty recovery can take between 8 and 10 weeks, depending on how extensive the surgery is and the patient’s condition of health. Patients will be given a comprehensive after-care plan detailing how to care for their incisions and manage any surgical drains if they have them.

Dr. Angelina will also offer advice on driving, optimal sleeping positions, walking, and increasing activity during recovery. Typically, she will prescribe antibiotics and pain medication to manage pain and reduce infection risks. Bruising and swelling are common side effects and can last several months, but most patients feel ready for light activities after about 4 weeks. Always speak with Dr. Angelina before engaging in any strenuous activity to ensure the incisions from your fleur de lis tummy tuck have healed.


The horizontal scar from the fleur-de-lis tummy tuck will be hidden under most underwear and bathing suit bottoms, but the vertical scar will be one of the most visible. Fleur de lis tummy tuck scars are typically thin and may be raised, recessed, or lighter than the surrounding skin, often starting as very fine white lines. Scars usually begin to flatten after the first few months and can begin to fade beginning around six months post-surgery. Over time, they can transition through various colors, such as deep purple, red, pink, and pale purple, before returning to white. (This can take 18 months to 2 years.)

Everyone heals at their own rate, so the full healing and fading process will be different for each person. Dr. Angelina will provide you with a detailed protocol for wound and scar care. Following her recommendations closely will help ensure your scar heals and fades as quickly as possible.

My surgery for a tummy tuck / lipo / fat transfer to the hips was successful with zero complications. My healing experience was above average for a person that has a medical history like mine. My TT scars are next to perfect within 3 weeks of surgery. This could have not been possible without someone like Dr. Angelina who places the patients health above a $$$.

My experience with Surgicare Arts & Aesthetics was beyond expectations. I am a 57 year old male that had Gastric Sleeve Surgery by Dr. Chris on 8/30/18. 9 months later and 150 lbs lost I had abdominoplasty surgery performed by Dr. Angelina. Dr. Angelina, Stacy, and Christine welcomed me at every visit making me feel like I was a friend as much as a patient. They answered every question pre and post operation. I plan on having additional skin removal procedures at Surgicare Arts in the near future. I am so thankful I found them.

How Long Does A Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Take?

The duration of a fleur-de-Lis abdominoplasty ranges from three to six hours, and can vary based on the patient’s circumstances and anatomy and the extent of correction needed.

How Long Will The Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Results Last?

The results of a fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty are considered permanent and will last for many years to come, provided you maintain a steady weight and live a healthy lifestyle. Sadly, nothing can stop the hands of time, so eventually some of your results may fade due to natural aging. Genetics, diet, lifestyle, and how much exercise you get will all play a role in achieving long-lasting results.
