Abdominal contour surgery is performed through a low horizontal, hip to hip incision. The transverse lower abdominal incision and cephalad dissection to the xiphoid and costal margins effectively allow mobilization of the skin in order to resect the redundant and excessive tissue.
The more challenging and aesthetically significant portion of the surgery is placement of the umbilical incision.
The "umbilical locator" is a simple tool/device to allow easier localization of the umbilicus through the skin after mobilization of the redundant tissue.
