With abdominoplasty, it is possible to help women, whose anterior abdominal wall is sagging and loose, and whose abdominal muscles are weak after pregnancy. This surgery is also necessary to those, who have lost considerable weight, for example, after bariatric surgeries.
Before the surgery
The body weight should be fixed – stable, there should not be any noticeable changes in the last two or three months. Additional examinations – blood test, as well as ultrasound of the anterior abdominal wall.
Process of the surgery
Excess skin and fatty tissues are removed from the anterior and lower part of the abdomen, but muscles are tightened. An umbilical transposition is also performed, if needed. The cut is made in the lower part of the abdomen in the bikini area. The surgery lasts about 2-3 hours and the surgery is performed under general anaesthesia.
You should stay in the hospital for 3-4 days. You should wear an abdominal support belt for 2 to 3 weeks. You can start active physical activity in 4-6 weeks. Scars are bleached and become invisible within 3 to 12 months.
The result is long-term, but can be influenced by drastic changes in body weight and pregnancy. You should not plan your pregnancy faster that in a year.
