Abdominal plastic surgery
Abdominal plastic surgery, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that allows you to get rid of unsightly skin folds in the abdominal area. People who have lost a lot of weight in a relatively short time or were recently pregnant often struggle with this condition, which often causes complexes. Tummy tuck allows you to effectively eliminate this problem.
Abdominoplasty also allows you to avoid or get rid of the unpleasant complications associated with the accumulation of excess skin in the abdominal area. If we lead to some negligence, this condition can result in mycosis of the skin, abdominal hernia, as well as the separation of the abdominal muscles. Abdominoplasty may result in better appearance, health and well-being.
Abdominoplasty – what is it?
Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that consists in making an incision in the lower part of the abdomen, removing excess skin along with fatty tissue and strengthening the muscles, which will ensure the effect of a slim figure. Importantly, unsightly stretch marks appear very often in this area. Thanks to tummy tucks, we can also get rid of this problem to a large extent by removing the surface of the skin where the changes occur. The incision is made at the level of the lower abdomen, which allows you to hide the scar under a bathing suit or underwear. Gradually, the scar matures and becomes paler and less visible.
Abdominoplasty – for whom?
The treatment is dedicated to people who, as a result of a significant weight loss, have gained excess skin on the abdomen. It is also willingly used by women who have visible skin and fat folds in the abdomen after pregnancy. It should be emphasized that abdominoplasty is not a slimming procedure, but aimed at removing skin and fat folds from the abdomen. It should not be carried out in people who have a problem with overweight or obesity, but should be aimed at improving the appearance after losing weight. To maintain the effect after the procedure, it is important that the patient maintains a stable body weight. For this reason, tummy tuck is intended for people who can control their weight. It should not be performed on women who are planning another pregnancy in the coming years.
Recommendations before the procedure
When planning an operation, remember to:
- quit smoking at least 4 weeks before the planned date of surgery
- 2 weeks before plastic surgery do not take aspirin or any of its derivatives
- tell your doctor about all the medicines you are taking or have recently taken
- tell your doctor about any medications you are allergic to
- provide a set of tests needed to perform the procedure
Recommendations after the procedure
An elastic bandage, corset or compression garment should be worn 24 hours a day for at least 4 weeks after surgery, and only during the day for another 2 weeks. The first effects of the operation are visible immediately after the procedure. Over time, the operational swelling of the tissues will subside, their structure will be rebuilt, the cut lines will fade.
After the abdominoplasty, our belly will become proportional to the rest of the body. The skin in this area will become firmer and tighter. We will no longer have to deal with hanging skin folds or stretch marks on the stomach. The abdominal area will be nicely and naturally modeled. The abdominal muscles will also be surgically strengthened, which will maintain the shape of our figure. The first effects of tummy tuck are visible immediately after the procedure. Swelling and bruising may persist for several weeks. The scars, which are red at first, fade over time and become barely visible.
