Abdominoplasty

addominoplastica
The abdomen is a part of the body that is easily subject to the advent of imperfections. Pregnancies, sudden weight loss or gains and a decrease of muscle tone can cause skin excess, fat accumulation and the appearance of stretch marks.

Keeping a dry and toned belly is the desire of many women and in many cases neither proper nutrition nor physical activity are enough not to feel dissatisfaction with your body. Luckily, there is a solution, called abdominoplasty, a surgery that guarantees a new tone to the abdomen and that gives back harmony to the silhouette.

The procedure

With the first visit I make sure that the patient is in good health, I explain the risks and possible complications. I also illustrate the achievable results (realistic and in line with her wishes).

During the surgery, which I perform under general anesthesia, I make some incisions to remove excess fat and skin. Upon awakening it is frequent to feel some pain that vanishes in less than 10 days. After the surgery I first apply a compression bandage and later, a containment band to wear for another four weeks.

Some scars may be permanent but they will become small, slightly visible white marks. During the recovery, which can last from six to eight weeks, the rest from any physical activity is needed and, during the first two weeks, you should even avoid working. The result of all of this? A smooth abdomen, more tonic and in equilibrium with the other body forms.

Frequently asked questions

Doubts or questions? It's only natural to have any! Below I try to answer the most frequent ones. For further clarification you can write to me at any time, I will answer as soon as possible.
01. Do you have to be fasting to support the operation?
Yes, since it is general anaesthesia, you should not eat or drink for about six hours before the operation.
02. Is it necessary to stop smoking before the operation?
Yes. In order to promote rapid recovery and reduce the risk of infection, smokers should refrain from smoking, starting at least two weeks before the operation.
03. Is it not recommended to take medication before treatment?
It is not recommended, but there is a possibility that it is necessary to stop taking them.
04. How long does the operation last and what abdominoplasty operations are possible?
The operation takes about two or three hours and requires a one or two nights hospitalization. There are three types of possible surgery: standard, partial and extensive abdominoplasty. Standard abdominoplasty: it is one of the best known techniques, it consist in an incision along the lower abdomen that allows me to tighten the stomach muscles (contouring process) and remove excess fat and skin. I then tighten the skin down and close the incision. Finally, after a small incision around the navel necessary to reposition it, I insert the draining tubes and make a compression bandage. Partial abdominoplasty: it is a less invasive technique because it does not involve moving the navel and is dedicated to those women who have excess skin and fat located in the lower abdomen. Extended abdominoplasty: Identical to standard abdominoplasty, this procedure also requires lateral liposuction with ultrasound (Vaser) to eliminate excess skin and fat from the hips and waist.
