Abdominoplasty

What is Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty or "tummy tuck" is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skan and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is usually sought by patients with loose or sagging tissues after pregnancy or major weight loss.

Am I a candidate for Abdominoplasty?

An individual must be in good health, not have any active diseases or serious, pre-existing medical conditions and must have realistic expectations of the outcome of their surgery. This is an operation which requires patience and stability in dealing with the healing period. There is sometimes a lull or depression after surgery and if there is already a pre-existing emotional problem, this low period can develop into a more serious issue. Please consider this before committing to a procedure. If the above describes you and you have the desire to rid yourself of loose sagging skin of the abdominal area, you may be a good candidate for Abdominoplasty.
Normally women seek this procedure after pregnancy - although it is advised to wait until you are finished having children to have this procedure as the skin and muscles can get stretched out again as well as the dangers of your newly taut skin being unable to accommodate another pregnancy.Also, if you are considering losing weight you should wait until after your desired weight is met.

When is Abdominoplasty usually performed?

The Abdominoplasty procedure is usually performed when a person is discontent with their appearance in the abdomen region. It is most often sought out after a woman has given birth and does not plan on having any more children. After the extra skin and muscle tissue is removed, the abdomen may not be able to accommodate another child.

When will I be able to see the results?

After the swelling subsides and the drains are taken out you will start to see a difference.  However, underlying tissues have been cut and that an Abdominoplasty is a very invasive procedure. The body needs time to heal.  You will in time reap the benefits of this procedure.

How soon can I return to work after an abdominoplasty?

Typically, individuals are able to return to work after about two weeks. The exact amount of time will depend on the extent of your abdominoplasty, your pain tolerance and the physical demands of your work.

Can an abdominoplasty help me lose weight?

An abdominoplasty is not a weight loss surgery. Patients should not undergo abdominoplasty to lose weight. Rather, they should have already lost the weight through diet, exercise, or weight loss surgery and desire to improve the contour of their midsection.

Can I have breast surgery or liposuction at the time of a tummy tuck?

Abdominoplasty is frequently performed as part of a “Mommy Makeover” procedure. Abdominoplasties are often coupled with other procedures, including breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, or even liposuction. Undergoing these procedures at the same time is often desirable for patients looking to avoid multiple surgeries.

Which pre-operative exams are necessary before surgery?

After consultations with our doctors and arranged intervention, it is necessary to undergo standard lab exams like blood test, blood clotting tests, urine tests, EKG and eventually internist examination.
