Why Abdominoplasty Surgery Is Done?

Abdominoplasty Surgery is done if you have a flab in the abdomen that does not go with exercise. The shape of your tummy has been affected by pregnancy or massive weight loss, or you feel your protruding belly is unattractive.

What is the Procedure ?

An incision is placed in lower abdomen from one hip bone to the other , and the skin-fat flap is lifted up from the underlying muscle wall right up to the lower chest. The vertical muscles of the abdomen, may be repaired in the midline to close a gap that usually forms after weakening during pregnancy. This is done by placing internal stitches between the muscles along their whole length, which helps to reduce the upper abdominal bulge.

Then the skin-fat flap is pulled down, and all excess overhanging skin and fat in the lower abdomen is trimmed off. The edges of the incision are then closed with stitches. Finally, the belly button is re-fixed, making its appearance more youthful.

Recovery after Surgery?

The recovery period is 3 to 4 days. The patient can start routine activities after one week and strenuous activities after three weeks.

The patient is advised to wear garments to reduce edema in the postoperative period. Results of a firmer, flatter abdomen with a good waistline can be noted at the end of 1 to 3 months.
