The belly can lose its shape for various reasons. Most often, women think about abdominoplasty after pregnancy and childbirth. Often people who have dramatically lost weight also turn to the surgeon. A certain proportion of patients who undergo abdominoplasty are aged people - over the years, muscles and skin lose elasticity, and there is no way to correct the situation with a diet. So, abdominoplasty is an operation during which excess skin and subcutaneous fat in the abdomen are removed and the abdominal muscles are tightened. It should be understood that this is a rather serious and difficult operation for the patient, after which rehabilitation is required. Therefore, in cases where it is still possible to tighten the stomach with the help of fitness and diet, doctors do not recommend resorting to such a radical measure.
There are several types of abdominoplasty of the abdomen.
1. Mini-abdominoplasty only affects the lower abdominal wall. This operation will help if you need to tighten the skin. The scar after a mini-abdominoplasty is small and inconspicuous.
2. Classical abdominoplasty is an operation in which the surgeon not only removes excess fat and tightens the skin, but also sutures the muscles of the abdominal wall. In this case, the navel is transferred. This is a more complex operation and the scars are larger.
3. Endoscopic abdominoplasty involves only suturing the muscles, but does not involve the skin. The operation is performed through small incisions, so that scars after this type of abdominoplasty are invisible.
Abdominoplasty is performed under general, combined, endotracheal anesthesia or regional (spinal) anesthesia. The duration of the operation directly depends on how much the problem is running. As a rule, classical abdominoplasty takes place in several stages. In the first stage, the surgeon makes an incision in the lower abdomen and separates the skin flap along with fatty tissue up to the ribs, then makes an incision around the navel and peels it off. After that, hernias and muscle discrepancies are removed, excess skin and fat deposits are removed, the tissues of the upper abdomen are stretched, the navel is transferred to a new place, and the surgeon sutures. Postoperative scars can spoil the effect somewhat, although modern techniques make them invisible. Usually the seam is hidden behind the bikini line. But even if the scar is visible, this does not mean that nothing can be done about it. There are many cosmetic procedures available to eliminate scars and scars, such as various types of laser resurfacing, and with the right lifestyle, the effect of the operation will last for decades - although, of course, it will not be able to stop age-related changes. However, even after 30 years, your belly will be much more beautiful than most of your peers.
