Tummy Tuck: Who are candidates for abdominoplasty?
The abdominoplasty (or the cure of Diastasis) is the most complete plastic surgery of the belly. Our technique consists of systematically removing excess skin, performing liposuction of excess fat, tightening the muscles (diastasis cure), and hollowing out the navel area.
What is abdominoplasty and what does it correct?
Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin of the belly by removing excess and/or damaged skin.
These slackenings and excesses essentially follow pregnancies and significant weight loss. Previous surgeries can also leave scars that abdominoplasty can correct.
The classic abdominoplasty consists of removing all the skin located between the pubis and at least the umbilicus (navel). The skin is then lowered above the umbilicus after having peeled it off. The umbilicus is repositioned through an orifice created at the end of the procedure. We are talking about abdominoplasty with transposition of the umbilicus. The goal is to regain the size of before (pregnancy or weight gain).
Who are candidates for abdominoplasty?
Candidates for abdominoplasty have several characteristics: abdomen with clear excess skin, looking for a really flat stomach, no fear of an abdominal scar. Patients may also have severe muscle relaxation which will require surgery to access and tighten the muscles with a scar hidden in the underwear and not in the middle of the abdomen as was done. in the past.
It seems essential that the abdominoplasty treats the abdomen in all its anatomical dimensions:
- the skin: the abdominoplasty removes the excess
- fat: systematic liposuction allows the thickness of the abdominal wall to be reduced
- the abdominal muscles: their tightening makes it possible to strengthen the abdominal belt, to correct the frequent protrusion of the stomach area, and also to refine the waist
The different types of abdominoplasty
SUPERIOR HIGH TENSION ABDOMINOPLASTY
We use the superior high tension abdominoplasty technique for the best result. It is now our technique of choice because it allows both to sculpt the abdomen in the most accomplished way, while increasing operative safety.
Indeed, this abdominoplasty makes it possible to dig into the stomach area to draw a really flat stomach, reduce post-operative risks, improve the appearance of the final scar.
In some rare cases, it is possible to perform a mini-abdominoplasty. Contrary to popular belief, this does not necessarily mean a mini-scar. In reality, the mini-abdominoplasty is indicated in cases where the excess skin is only below the navel. This excess skin is therefore removed, and no scar is made around the navel.
CIRCULAR ABDOMINOPLASTY – BODYLIFT
In case of circular excess skin extending into the back, it is possible to remove the skin from the loins by making a circular scar.
In some cases, it is possible with the same circular scar, to perform a bodylift which will also allow the buttocks and the outside of the thigh to be lifted.
Course of an intervention
It is an intervention carried out under general anesthesia which lasts between one hour and two hours thirty according to the importance of the deformation and the work to be carried out.
Associated liposuction of the flanks, epigastrium or even thighs can also lengthen the operating time.
Hospitalization is one to two nights.
PA will remove the abdominal apron and sometimes repair the distended anterior muscle wall (diastasis) with deep threads all the way up.
The navel is in cases of complete PA redrawn and sutured in the correct position in the “new belly”.
Finally, internal threads will close the entire detachment to avoid any risk of bleeding or effusion.
No drain is placed, offering more comfortable and less painful postoperative follow-up.
