Abdominoplasty is a surgical operation that aims to the improvement of the body image, in the belly area.
Many people, men and women face problems in the belly area, either because of laxity or existence of excess fat. In the specific surgical operation, the plastic surgeon removes excess fat and skin, from the lower part of the belly while at the same time tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall.
Most of the time women choose this kind of operation after pregnancies. With this way the doctor can eliminate both the relaxation and stretch marks that may have formed in the lower abdomen. But men, who experience laxity in the abdomen or lack of elasticity, can find a solution after an abdominoplasty.
At ABH Medical Group abdominoplasty can be successfully performed on both men and women. After the operation, patients see a great improvement in their appearance, regaining their self-confidence while at the same time resolving other issues that arise such as difficulty in choosing clothes, negative criticism from others and friends, a feeling of difficulty in movement or in advanced cases and even skin problems that occur in the area due to relaxation of the skin.
There are three different techniques in abdominoplasty that are applied:
The classic abdominoplasty: this is the removal of an abdominal wall with an incision over the pube, which extends from one iliac crest to the other, allowing us to remove a large amount of loose skin resulting from pregnancy or a large and abrupt weight loss, resulting in the creation of the “hanging belly”..
Circular abdominoplasty: One of the largest plastic surgeries that mainly concerns obese people with a lot of relaxation in many parts of the body. It removes more skin and fat around the waist, while very often it is combined with simultaneous lift of the buttocks and thighs.
Mini abdominoplasty or known as “Californian Tummy-Tuck”: One of the most elegant plastic operations, where a horizontal incision is made in the lower part of the abdominal wall (similar to the caesarean section) and a smaller part of the abdomen is removed. It is usually applied to women where they are relatively thin – it can be easily combined with liposuction – and they are concerned about stretch marks or deformities that occur in the lower part of the abdominal wall. The incision is relatively small and is placed at an area covered by the underwear.
Liposuction is a procedure of choice for targeting accumulated fat around the abdomen, at the front and on the sides., It is preferred in cases of restricted skin laxity and when abdominal muscles are in a good state. In these cases, liposuction in the abdominal area can yield impressive results and there are no restrictions if the patient wish to get pregnant again soon after the procedure. However, in cases where abdominal skin laxity is apparent, as well as in cases where abdominal muscles cannot maintain a satisfactory tone (e.g. after pregnancies, hernias, major weight fluctuations etc.), then abdominoplasty is a one-way road as this is the only procedure that can treat such problems
The surgery is performed in a hospital environment with total anesthesia or sedation in the safest conditions. At the end of the surgery, patient may feel a little discomfort for 3-4 days due to the removal of excess skin and in many cases the suture of the abdominal muscles. This discomfort can easily be treated with analgesics. At the end of the procedure, a resilient corset is given, which the patient should wear for 3-4 weeks. However, the result always justifies those who has chosen this method. The recovery time is short and the patient can return to his activities after 7 – 10 days.
After surgery the results of abdominoplasty are immediately visible in the highest ercentage and completed about after a month. After such a procedure, it is very important for the patient to control her/his weight. Exercise always helps towards maintaining a good shape. Abdominoplasty involves the removal of excess skin which will never grow back. However, sudden and extreme weight gain or a pregnancy may once again change patients body appearance.
