is a plastic operation that can correct the abdominal shape after childbirth or weight loss, remove excess skin and fat, remove abdominal muscle strain (diastasis) and even restore the lost waist line. Over the years, our body loses its former appeal: the contours lose clarity, the tummy sags, the skin stretches, becomes more flabby. In addition to age changes, childbirth and hormonal disorders which stretch the abdominal muscles, stretch the skin tissues and form stretches have a major impact on the female figure.Statement for abdominal plasticity:
- Excess skin tissue, presence of skin «apron»;
- Excess subcutaneous fat fibre;
- Scars and stretch marks;
- Abdominal muscle diastasis.
Abdominal plastics are performed after maximum weight loss. This is due to the fact that significant weight loss after surgery can lead to skin reflux.Methods of abdominoplasty
Abdominal plastics are carried out by different methods depending on the volume of excess skin and fat deposits, the presence of muscle stretches, scars, stretches, skin condition and other factors. Classic abdominal plastic is carried out through a large incision in the lower abdomen with the detachment and excision of the excess skin-fat flap, as well as the removal of the navel to the new position.
Mini abdominoplasty is optimal for the correction of one abdominal wall area. This reduces both the amount of surgery and the healing time. Abdominoplasty, performed through a vertical incision, helps to denote the waist and eliminate skin damage in the form of scars and stretch.
Abdominal plasticity combined with liposuction is the most effective method of correcting the shape, because in one operation it is possible to eliminate both sagging skin and fat deposits.
Abdominoplasty not only corrects the contours and shapes of the abdomen, but also strengthens the abdominal muscles by eliminating the diastasis. For this purpose, stress-side abdominoplasty is carried out.
Abdominoplasty requires a surgeon to have a great deal of theoretical knowledge and practical experience, because the operation must take into account many nuances in order to avoid serious complications in the form of umbilical umbilicus or excessive skin tension.
The procedure lasts about 2-3 hours. The patient is under general anaesthesia. After the surgery, a stay of 1-3 days is required.
