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.
