About the Total Abdominoplasty procedure
Abdominoplasty is a surgical intervention that aims to remove fat tissue from the abdomen. Often patients choose this intervention out of a desire to get rid of the belly faster and get the right body shape.
Being a surgical intervention, the patient must know from the beginning that a recovery period will be required after the operation.
The total abdominoplasty intervention is suitable for patients who face significant excess weight, especially in the abdomen area. Even if the intervention will help you get rid of the unsightly appearance of the belly, after the intervention the patient must start a healthier lifestyle.
How is the Total Abdominoplasty procedure performed?
The abdominoplasty operation is performed through a horizontal incision, performed above the pubic area, which continues from one side of the abdomen to the other, along with a periumbilical incision. Fat tissue will be extracted through this area.
Afterwards, excess skin and fat are removed and the abdominal muscles are strengthened with special sutures.
Finally, the navel will be repositioned on the new contour of the abdomen, and then the incision will be sutured.
The final result
After the intervention, the patient will have a slightly inflamed area of the abdomen, an absolutely normal appearance after a surgical intervention.
Easy, easy, after the area will heal and the results will start to be visible. That is why it is extremely important for the patient to follow the doctors’ recommendations, for an optimal result.
The final result will be visible in approximately 6 months after the intervention, when the area will be completely restored.
