Abdominoplasty removes the fat and skin that is in excess from the medium and lower part of the belly, also firms the muscles of the abdominal wall.
Loosening of the skin of the abdomen can happen in both sexes [men - women].
It involves excessive skin [with folding], presence of cracks and deformation of the belly button.
Pregnancies, sudden increase and loss of weight are usually the causes of loosening of the skin of the belly.
With abdominoplasty, the loose [excess] skin is removed along with the subadjacent fat, firming of the inner abdominal wall is performed and re-configuration of the position of the belly button.
As with all types of cosmetic surgery, abdominoplasty also has its advantages and disadvantages, all of which we are going to discuss in detail when you visit my clinic.
Clearly, abdominoplasty will offer you a flat stomach and your body will look more youthful. We must not forget the incision, which stretches from one iliac crest to the other, or the incision of mini abdominoplasty, a small one like a caesarean section. In any case, this is covered by your underwear or bathing suit and, in order for it to improve significantly, I will prescribe silicone sheets and, when the time is right, I will recommend Fraxel Restore laser treatment, which reduces the length and thickness of the incision and smooths it out impressively.
If you are planning to have a child it would be recommended to postpone the surgery to avoid a negative impact on its outcome.
The operation begins with the surgical removal of the anterior abdominal wall and simultaneous repositioning of the belly button. It is usually combined with liposuction if there is local fat accumulation, particularly on the sides of the body.
Knowing every detail of your medical history and having carried out the necessary preoperative checks, we will avoid all trouble.
Taking drugs such as contraceptives should be discontinued for one month and taking anticoagulants must be stopped (e.g. aspirin) 10 days prior to surgery.
The abdominoplasty requires general anesthesia, but in some cases it can be done under local anesthesia and sedation in the presence of anesthesiologist.
The surgery takes place in an organized operating room and requires a hospital stay of one day. Pain after abdominoplasty is not very intense and usually subsides with analgesics, such as Depon, Ponstan or Lonarid. Patients return to their daily activities after about two weeks.
