Partial and complete abdominolasties are possible. A partial abdominoplasty firms skin of the area below the navel, a complete or full abdominoplasty extends from the ribs to pubic area. It is performed when excess skin appears after pregnancy or weight loss – the abdominal wall muscles are stretched, it causes hernia or rupture; does not hold the stomach; the skin is inflexible, full of stretch marks, with excess fat tissue. This operation removes the excess skin and fat, restores the abdominal wall, tightens muscles. This surgery can be combined with liposuction from the sides to reshape the waist. The operation is performed under general anaesthetic; an overnight stay at the clinic is required. A compressive dressing should be worn for 1 month. Limitation for 3 – 4 weeks to attend sauna, pool, bath, solarium and sports. The stitches are removed on the 10th day. It would be nice if you were free from work, children, and household duties for 1 week.
Liposuction is not a weight loss method. It is a form of body contouring. An ideal patient is the person who has normal and constant weight but cannot improve areas that have deposits of excess fat. Fat cells proliferate till puberty. Thus their number remains constant but volume increases. Liposuction is the only method to remove millions of cells. All other methods affect just the size and number of cells thus allowing their growth. After liposuction, a reasonable number of cells remain. They can increase but only proportionally in all body – body contour and profile will stay the same. You will get rid of the fat deposits on the hips or stomach. Specific areas for women are hips, thighs, sides of your body, abdomen, arms, under the chin; for men – abdomen, sides above the waist, chest, under the chin. Liposuction can also be used to correct scars and raised body defects. This surgery will require much patience as the results will be seen after a month and a half. The quality of the skin is very important in this process. Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia. You will have to spend a night at the clinic, wear the compressing garment for 3-4 weeks. Shower after a week. Limitation for 3 – 4 weeks to attend sauna, bath, solarium and do sports. Starting from the 10th day special procedures should be started. They will reduce swelling, soften the scar tissue and facilitate skin shrinking. . It would be nice if you were free from work, children, and household duties for 1 week.
