Abdominoplasty is an aesthetic operation that can reach a very high degree of complexity.

Abdominoplasty is the ideal solution if you face:
Excess fallen abdominal skin.
Abdomen protruding out of proportion to the rest of the body.
Excess abdominal fat.

Abdominoplasty is a cosmetic operation that is performed by both young and older people. Abdominoplasty is a surgical operation that is usually used when we are dealing with considerable fat deposits on the abdomen (prominent belly) or vice versa, with that excess skin following gastric-sleeve type operations. Abdominoplasty can be total or partial.

During partial abdominoplasty, only the abdominal tissues below the navel are reshaped and mobilized, while the navel remains in place. It may be associated with liposuction in the upper abdomen and / or flanks.

Total abdominoplasty is done only if there is an exaggerated laxity in the skin in the upper abdomen (above the navel) and therefore a total correction is needed in the abdomen, and the navel will reposition properly.

Generally, a horizontal incision is placed just above the pubic area. The length of the incision, which extends between the two bones of the pelvis, depends on the amount of skin that needs to be removed. In people with a large amount of fallen skin, a secondary incision can be made around the navel and total abdominoplasty will be performed.

Abdominal lifting is performed under general anesthesia and usually lasts 4-5 hours. Drains are inserted into the wound. To prevent the risk of embolism, the compressive bandage is applied to the legs and, if necessary, special serums can be administered. Because close follow-up of patients is important in the postoperative period, and t hospital stay can be extended up to 3-4 days. Due to abdominal tension, the waist should be held slightly forward for the first 2 weeks.
