Plastic Surgery and Beauty
Improve your appearance with Abdominoplasty surgery
A firm and well-shaped abdomen is one of the criteria for fitness and almost all men and women try to achieve this by exercising and controlling their weight. But sometimes even with these methods, you can not achieve beauty and fitness. In the meantime, even people who are not very heavy can have a bulging or drooping abdomen. Here are some common causes of abdominal cramps:
- Age increasing
- Hereditary factors
- Pregnancy experience
- Abdominal surgeries
- Sudden weight gain and loss and total frequent weight fluctuations
Abdominal cosmetic surgery or abdominoplasty is performed to remove excess fat or skin from the abdomen. In abdominoplasty, recovery of the weakened and degenerated part of the abdominal muscle tissue can greatly help to tighten this area.
Is abdominoplasty suitable for me?
Tommy Tuck or abdominoplasty depends entirely on the person’s choice (regardless of the opinion of others or approaching an ideal mental image). In general, abdominoplasty can be helpful for the following people:
- People who are physically fit and have a stable weight.
- People who are familiar with the complications of this operation and have a logical idea of the results of the operation.
- People who are not smokers.
- People who are dissatisfied with the bad shape of their abdomen.
What is abdominoplasty?
Abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery used to remove excess fat from the abdomen to tighten the muscles and fascia of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is commonly used in patients with loose or weakened tissue after pregnancy or following major weight loss.
How to perform abdominoplasty surgery
After performing the necessary measures for anesthesia and preparing him/her for this extensive surgery, they start the surgery by connecting the heart rate monitors, pulse and respiratory assist device in the state of anesthesia. First, a large incision is made from the hip to the pelvis just above the urethra. Then another incision is made in and around the umbilicus to remove excess skin and fat above the abdomen.
Stretching the skin of the abdominal wall and suturing and repairing weakened muscles help to shrink the abdomen. Liposuction is often used to correct and remove excess belly fat. After the surgery, the site is bandaged and a drain is inserted to remove any excess fluid from the abdomen. Complete abdominoplasty involves suctioning of the skin and buttock skin lipectomy. In abdominal surgery, partial abdominoplasty separates the abdomen more narrowly than the muscular fascia. The skin on the lower abdomen is stretched and the excess skin is removed. Sometimes a part of the abdominal wall gets tighter. The remaining area is completely sutured.
About 100cm2 of skin is removed during a combined abdominoplasty with liposuction. In a more advanced method that takes a little over four and a half hours. Excess fat is removed in a vertical and horizontal line. As a result, with this method, the abdomen will flatten significantly.
After the abdominoplasty is over, your abdomen and sutures will be bandaged. The area to be operated on is covered with a sterile bandage so that it is neither too tight nor too loose, and the dressing should be changed frequently until the wounds are completely healed.
A small tube may be temporarily implanted under the skin to collect water or other contents.

Concerns that may arise about general health and location of surgery.
There are several techniques for breast reduction surgery. They all aim to remove excess breast tissue, re-shape breasts and re-position the nipples. The chosen technique depends on the woman’s physical condition and desired results, and also determines the position of the scar.
The most common technique is an anchor-shaped incision that goes around the areola (still leaving the nipple attached), down to the crease between the breast and chest, and then horizontally into that crease. If the breast is large and droopy, the nipple and areola may be detached and later re-attached. Usually the scar is positioned around the areola and just at the base of the breast, where it can be easily hidden.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and takes about 2-3 hours. Drains are inserted and left in place to let any accumulating fluids and blood flow out of the site of operation. These are usually removed after two days.
Antibiotics may be given before and after the operation to reduce the risk of wound infections.
Breast prostheses are breast forms intended to simulate breasts. There are a number of materials and designs; although, the most common construction is silicone gel in a plastic skin. Off-the shelf breast prostheses come in a range of shapes and sizes, while customised breast prostheses are moulded to fit an individual's chest by taking an impression of both breasts and sculpting a mirror image. Pals Breast Forms consist of a lifelike gel which can be trimmed to fit with scissors, then sent back for customization. Fabrication of customised prostheses is typically done by an anaplastologist who makes somato prostheses. The areola and nipple may be replicated by being moulded into the breast form or a separate nipple prosthesis may be attached to the breast prosthesis. Both custom made and off-the shelf breast prostheses come in varieties that are designed to either be held in a pocket in a specially designed mastectomy bra or attached to the skin and worn with a standard bra.
Liposuction is mainly used to improve appearance, rather than providing any physical health benefits. Most people would probably achieve the same or better results by adopting a healthful lifestyle, with a balanced diet, regular exercise, and a healthy sleep schedule.
Liposuction is normally advised only if lifestyle changes have not achieved the desired results. It can treat areas of fat that are resistant to exercise and diet.
When an individual gains weight, each fat cell increases in size and volume. Liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in isolated areas.
People should discuss the pros and cons of liposuction with their doctor before deciding on whether to proceed. Liposuction should only be carried out after careful consideration.
Rhinoplasty is a common cosmetic surgery performed by surgeons.
Rhinoplasty is a type of surgery performed on people who are looking to improve the appearance of their nose. Because the nose is an important member of the face. Patients have many reasons to choose rhinoplasty.
How is rhinoplasty performed?
Rhinoplasty surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and patients undergo general anesthesia during this procedure. Depending on what is done, rhinoplasty surgery is sometimes done with hidden incisions that are completely inserted into the nose (also called endonasal or occult rhinoplasty). Internal incisions are often accompanied by a small, well-hidden external incision on the columella (the skin that separates the nostrils). The skin is then removed from the structure of the nose and allows the surgeon to reshape the cartilage and bone under the skin (called open or external rhinoplasty). When the nose is finished, the incisions are closed with small sutures. Rhinoplasty can take 2-3 hours depending on the complexity of the process.
In what cases is rhinoplasty performed?
In addition to cosmetic applications, rhinoplasty is also used to treat respiratory problems and other disorders. Those who are dissatisfied with their bridge or the tip of their nose and want to remove their hump or narrow the tip of their nose should use this method. Other people who have their nose operated on for medical reasons may have a blocked nasal airway due to a fracture or congenital problems.
Avoid strenuous activities such as aerobics and running.
When you have a bandage on your nose, use a bathtub instead of a shower.
Do not hit your nose.
To prevent constipation, eat fiber-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables. Constipation can put pressure on you, resulting in pressure on the surgical site.
Avoid extreme facial expressions, such as smiling or laughing
Brush your teeth gently to restrict the movement of your upper lip.
Wear clothes that close from the front. Do not wear clothes like T-shirts that you have to wear on your head.
In addition, do not wear prescription glasses or sunglasses for at least four weeks after surgery to prevent pressure on your nose.
Use SPS 30 sunscreen when you go out, especially on your nose. Excessive sun can cause permanent discoloration of the skin around your nose.
Occasionally there may be swelling or bruising around your eyes for 2 to 3 weeks after rhinoplasty. It will take longer for the nose to swell.
Limiting sodium in the diet helps the swelling heal faster.
