Abdominoplasty: why do it?

Dr. José Cury | Home | Blog | Sem categoria | Abdominoplasty: why do it?

There are several reasons that lead a person to undergo surgery. abdominoplasty It is generally performed to correct abdominal protrusion that occurs due to muscle flaccidity or fat deposits accumulated in the abdominal region and can be done to remove stretch marks on the belly.

I understand that beyond correction or aesthetics, abdominoplasty changes the self-confidence, quality of life and psychological well-being of people who undergo the procedure.

I often receive many questions about the abdominoplasty procedure, so with that in mind, I wrote this article to solve some of them. So, if you want to know more about the subject, read until the end.

Can someone who has an abdominoplasty get their belly back?

Yes, it is possible for those who undergo abdominoplasty to have a belly again, but this is not a rule. Physical activities and a balanced diet are essential for its maintenance.

Who cannot have an abdominoplasty?

The main  contraindications for abdominoplasty  are:

  • women who intend to become pregnant;
  • obese patients;
  • people with collagen diseases;
  • people with scars in the abdominal region;
  • uncontrolled diabetes;
  • smoking people.

This entire group needs and must be evaluated by a doctor, as each case is different.

There are some conditions that indicate  when to have  an abdominoplasty:

Remembering that abdominoplasty can be done for aesthetic or therapeutic reasons, although the greatest demand is for patients with

  • abdomen disproportionate to the rest of the body;
  • weakened or separated abdominal muscles, known as diastasis;
  • concentration of adipose tissue in the abdominal region;
  • women who have had multiple pregnancies;
  • people who have lost a large amount of weight;
  • people who genetically have fat accumulation in the abdominal region.

For the procedure to be carried out successfully, the patient must be healthy.

Can people who undergo abdominoplasty get pregnant?

In general, yes. The procedure does not interfere with the baby’s development, because the skin will stretch as much as necessary to accommodate the pregnancy. Our recommendation is that after having an abdominoplasty, women wait between one and two years to get pregnant.

What is lipo with abdominoplasty?

Also known as  lipoabdominoplasty,  the technique combines two distinct procedures in the same surgery. In this case, liposuction and abdominoplasty are performed at the same time.

Recommended for women who have excess loose skin, localized fat, sagging abdominal muscles.

What is HD abdominoplasty?

HD abdominoplasty is a high definition procedure (HD = high definition). Generally associated with HD liposuction to improve the contour. It is done through more intense vibroliposuction in some areas and less in others.

Is it possible to have abdominoplasty and mammoplasty surgery at once?

It is both possible and safe to perform both surgeries at the same time. The important thing is that all safety parameters are respected.

Recovery is unique and in this case there is no need to undergo two hospitalizations. It is common for the patient to feel discomfort in the first few days and rest is essential for the first ten days. The recovery time for an abdominoplasty associated with mammoplasty lasts around two months.

When can I drive after a tummy tuck?

The timeframe for returning to main activities after an abdominoplasty varies slightly, but for  returning to driving after abdominoplasty only after 30 days.
