Abdominoplasty, also called abdominal lipectomy, is a plastic surgery designed to restore the aesthetics of the abdomen by removing excess skin caused by pregnancy or significant weight loss.

The incision for a tummy tuck is usually made in the pubic area and around the belly button, allowing the stretched muscles to be tightened and excess skin removed.

Abdominoplasty

  • Advantages and Benefits
  • Abdominoplasty makes the abdomen look flatter, firmer and better contoured.
  • Eliminates excess fat and skin in the abdominal area.
  • The results are permanent, as long as they are accompanied by a balanced diet and exercise.
  • With this surgery, stretch marks can be removed, especially those located in the area below the belly button.

Recommendations

  • Absolute rest is not mandatory, on the contrary, it is advisable to return to normal activities as quickly as possible to the best of your abilities.
  • Avoid tanning during the first three months after the surgery, as it can cause irreversible skin spots.
  • Do not smoke for three months, as smoking does not favour healing.
  • It is important that you take care of your body posture after the surgery; above all, you should avoid body postures that involve strong stretching, which can open wounds.
  • Wear a post-surgical compression garment for as long as the doctor indicates.
  • Post-Op swelling will fade around the third or fourth month after the procedure. After the sixth month, you will be able to appreciate the final result.
