Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery)
Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a rather complicated and much-in-demand plastic surgery aimed to restore the appearance and esthetic shape of the frontal abdominal wall. Since abdominoplasty is chiefly performed on women after childbirth, feedback is mainly received from them.
Nevertheless, most feedback confirms that the effect is worth the money. As plastic surgery is one of the main activities of the Diamondlaser clinic in Kiev, our clients will have a moderate price for abdominoplasty. Besides, from our web-site you can find out how much ordinary or endoscopic plastic surgery will cost and read feedback.
What is tummy tuck surgery?
Nowadays, there are two ways to perform such surgeries as abdominoplasty. Both traditional and endoscopic surgery is applicable here. Certainly, many things depend on the intervention type. On the one hand, it is the price related to the high cost of equipment and consumables. On the other hand, it’s the result. Endoscopic abdominoplasty does not leave any scars as it only requires 2–3 holes up to 5 mm in diameter to introduce the tools.
However, it should be noted that it is not always possible to perform a plastic surgery on the frontal abdominal wall using endoscopic equipment. It can only be confirmed after an individual consultation at the Diamondlaser clinic in Kiev.
Indications to abdominoplasty
- Age-related, post-partum, and rapid weight loss related folds and stretches;
- Excessive skin and fat tissue on the frontal abdominal wall;
- Weakened aponeurosis causing rectus abdominis muscle to come apart;
- Their laxity distorting waist contours;
- Large scars (post-operative, including after cesarean section);
- Abdominoplasty is also performed simultaneously with the surgery for umbilical hernia.
Contraindications to abdominoplasty
This operation has the same contraindications as any other surgery. These include malignant and benign tumors, blood circulation diseases, acute and chronic infections, and diabetes mellitus. Also, abdominoplasty is not performed on breastfeeding women following the childbirth.
What happens during a tummy tuck procedure?
Both conventional and endoscopic abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. Marks are made on the frontal abdominal wall for the surgeon to understand what should be left and what should be removed. Excess skin and subcutaneous fatty tissue, scarred skin and regions with stretches are excised. It contributes to natural lifting. If necessary, the weakened tendons of the abs are lifted. A neat suture is then applied.
Recovering from tummy tuck
The patient should stay at the in-patient department for several days after abdominoplasty in order to prevent complications. A bandage is worn after the plastic surgery until the scar is healed, and compression garment is worn for another several weeks. It should also be noted that physical exercise is prohibited for up to 3 months following the operation.
Just like the final price, it depends on the scope of abdominoplasty and its method (conventional or endoscopic). On average, the operation lasts for 2–3 hours.
Abdominoplasty will give you a beautiful, flat and attractive stomach. Its contours will be perfect, and you will forget that you have ever had scars or stretches on the frontal abdominal wall. It is confirmed by feedback from our former clients.
