Abstract We propose reinforcing the abdominal wall in abdominoplasties with a polypropylene mesh over three fusiform plications. A marked degree of musculoaponeurotic reinforcement is achieved and maintained postoperatively, especially if these layers are very flaccid. Indications for the procedure and patient selection are described.
