Abdominoplasty is one of the most popular procedures for both men and women.
The reasons why someone may undergo a tummy tuck surgery include:
η αφαίρεση περίσσειας κοιλιακού δέρματος
η διόρθωση χαλάρωσης ή και διάστασης των κοιλιακών μυών
η διαμόρφωση της περιφέρειας (waistline)
η δημιουργία ενός επίπεδου και αρμονικότερου κοιλιακού προφίλ
Ideally, abdominoplasty procedures should follow and not precede major weight loss or pregnancy as the beneficial effects of the procedure may be altered.
Abdominoplasty surgery can be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as breast lift and/or breast augmentation and liposuction. The common combination of procedures in post-pregnancy body contouring is internationally referred to as the Mommy Makeover.
In milder conditions of abdominal skin laxity, in which there is not much abdominal muscle separation, patients can benefit from a mini abdominoplasty, which is a much lighter procedure. In this operation, the incisions are smaller and the recovery time is significantly shorter than that of the classic abdominoplasty.
Abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. It takes 2-3 hours, while the time for the mini abdominoplasty is reduced by about half. The stay in bed should be as short as possible and patients are encouraged to get up and walk around even on the day of surgery.
Initially the appearance of the abdomen will be relatively swollen and there will be a feeling of numbness in the area. Both of these symptoms will subside within a few days. Postoperatively, the application of an elastic band for 3-4 weeks is required to achieve the best possible aesthetic result and to deal with possible fluid collection in the area.
Physical exercise is gradually allowed after the 6th week. The scar of the operation is placed in such a place that it is hidden by the underwear or swimsuit on the beach. After healing is complete, a thin line remains.
