Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) with Liposuction and Muscle Repair
Description of the procedure and the resulting effect
The incision is made based on various factors, which are evaluated at the preoperative consultation. Usually one long, horizontal incision is made in the lower abdomen. The second, small incision is around the navel. The skin and subcutaneous tissue are separated from the muscles and the abdominal wall is toned, if necessary, by suturing the abdominal muscles. Excess skin is removed, and a new hole is created for the navel. The scar remains in the lower abdomen to be easily covered with underwear.
The surgeon can assess that you suffer from Diastasis or separation of the straight abdominal muscles. This problem is solved by suturing, which re-tones the abdominal wall and the procedure has a more permanent result. The procedure can be combined with liposuction. After receiving the photos or in the personal consultation before the procedure, the attending physician will evaluate whether and which liposuction to use. Finally, the wound is closed with absorbable sutures.
The effect of the surgery is permanent if you follow the recommended diet with plenty of exercise.
