Abdminoplasty

Candidates:
Women or men with an abdomen out of proportion with the rest of their body due to either an excess of skin and fat in this area. Or due to abdominal muscles that have been separated and weakened, specifically seen in some women after pregnancy or after weight loss.


Objective:
To improve the shape of the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin and tightening the abdominal wall muscles, giving youthful appearance.


Incisions and technique:
A horizontal incision is made just above the pubic area, and extends laterallytoward the pelvic bones. The length of the scar depends on the amount of skin that needs to be removed and usually the incision can be placed within thelines of the bathing suit. When there is a small amount of loose skin and thefat deposits are concentrated below the navel, a much shorter horizontal incision will be sufficient. This is called a mini-abdominoplasty. When thereis loose skin above the umbilicus a second incision is made around the navel freeing it from the abdominal skin, the excess skin is then pulled down and the navel re positioned, thus the final position of the navel remains the same.

Operating Time:

2 to 3 hours.

Anesthesia:
General anesthesia is needed when the muscle wall needs tightening otherwise regional anesthesia with sedation is administered.


Hospital Stay/Outpatient:
A minimum 48-hour stay is advised with a full abdominoplasty (especially if combined with another procedure). A mini-abdominoplasty can be performed on an outpatient basis although an overnight stay is advised.

Recovery Period:
Temporary pain is treated with analgesics. Swelling, tenderness, numbness ofabdominal skin, bruising, and tiredness, some, or all of these can last up toseveral weeks. Small drains, removed after a few days, are used to help avoidthe accumulation of fluids in the abdominal wall. Dressings are applied andwill be changed every other day for the first two weeks. You may be required towear a girdle for 20 to 30 days. Stitches will be removed in stages over aperiod of one or two weeks.

Possible Complications:
Collection of liquid under the flap. Blood clots. Infection. Bleeding under theskin flap. Reactions to anesthesia. Delayed healing. Poor healing resulting invisible scarring or skin loss. Need for a second operation. Possibility of widescars (keloids) in patients with a tendency. Any one of these complicationscould occur and every precaution is taken to minimize the possibility. RecoveryTime: Back to work: in 2 to 3 weeks. Strenuous exercising and sunbathing in 4to 6 weeks or more. Fading and flattening of the scar: occurs after 3 monthsand sometimes up to 2 years.

Details:
Any plan to become pregnant or lose weight in the future, should be discussedbefore the operation. The scar placement and quality from previous abdominalsurgery may limit the results of your abdominoplasty. There may be animprovement in the number of stretch marks, especially those located below thenavel, as the skin of the lower abdomen that contains the stretch marks will beremoved. Sometimes liposuction may be used alone to remove abdominal fat, or inconjunction with an abdominoplasty procedure.

Duration of the Results:
The abdomen should remain firm and flat for many years, unless you gain a lotof weight or become pregnant. However, over the years, with the pull of gravityand natural aging process, a second abdominoplasty may be needed to improve thebody contour.
