Abdominoplasty

Tighten Your Stomach!

What is Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin while tightening the abdominal muscles. It is not a weight-loss method but rather a way to reshape the abdomen and achieve a smooth, flat silhouette.

Ideal candidates for Abdominoplasty?

  • Individuals with excess skin after significant weight loss or childbirth
  • Those with weak abdominal muscle tone
  • Individuals seeking a permanent solution for localized fat deposits

Preparation and procedure

Preparation for Abdominoplasty

Complete preparation for surgery is done at our clinic and is included in the price.

It includes the following:

  • Laboratory tests
  • Internal medicine and cardiology examination with ECG
  • Anesthesiologist consultation

How is Abdominoplasty performed?

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, with an incision typically hidden below the bikini line. Abdominal muscles are tightened and sutured, and excess skin is removed. In many cases, liposuction is combined with abdominoplasty for optimal results.

Recovery after Abdominoplasty

After surgery, patients wear a compression garment to help reduce swelling and support recovery. Most patients go home 1-2 days after surgery and return to work within 2-3 weeks. Full recovery and return to normal activities are expected within 6 weeks.

Risks after Abdominoplasty

As with any surgery, there are risks of allergic reactions to anesthesia, bleeding, and infection, but these risks are minimized when the procedure is performed in a fully sterile operating room and strictly follows protocol by an experienced surgeon.

Before and After

FAQ

Are the results of Abdominoplasty permanent?

Yes, the results are permanent provided that you maintain a stable body weight and a healthy lifestyle.

Preparation includes laboratory tests, internal medicine and cardiology examination, abdominal ultrasound, and cessation of smoking and certain medications that can affect bleeding.

Recovery after abdominoplasty typically requires 2 to 4 weeks, during which it’s important to limit physical activity. In the first few days, you can expect discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which can be managed with appropriate pain medication. Wearing a compression garment helps reduce swelling and support the new shape of the abdomen. Most patients can resume light daily activities after 2 weeks, but should avoid intense physical exertion and heavy lifting for at least 6 weeks.
