Step by step
First, you should register for a consultation with a plastic surgeon. During the consultation the surgeon will examine you, determine what type of surgery is right for you, answer all your questions and tell you about the results of the operation. Plastic surgeons at ANA-COSMO advise patients to combine abdominoplasty with ultrasound liposuction often. This makes it possible to reduce the traumatic nature of the operation and to achieve maximum results in the shortest possible time.
After consultation, you will undergo a preoperative examination. Directly in ANA-COSMO clinic you can make all the necessary medical tests. Also you may consult an anesthesiologist and therapist in one day. Analyzes can be handled both in ANA-COSMO clinic or in any laboratory convenient for you.
Choosing the day of operation
The choice of the day of surgery is made after examination with a plastic surgeon.
The operation lasts an average of 1.5 - 2.5 hours under general anesthesia. During the operation, depending on the complexity of the process, the doctor removes excess skin, if necessary - stretch marks, fat deposits in the abdominal area and, also if necessary, makes a "reset" of the navel to a new location.
The patient must stay in a hospital under medical supervision within two days. The first weeks will bring some discomfort feeling. Be sure to wear compression underwear for 1.5 months and exclude physical activity (especially - on the press) for 2-3 months.
Endoscopic tummy tuck. This operation is performed with slight loosening of the muscles of the press with just a few punctures in the bikini zone. At the same time skin tightening is not required.
Mini abdominoplasty involves removing a small amount of skin and fat folds without transferring the navel (cut - in the bikini zone)
Average abdominoplasty. Suitable for patients whose goal is to remove sagging skin, adipose tissue and tighten muscles (an additional incision is made on the abdominal wall)
Full abdominoplasty - removal of excess skin and fat on the abdomen, hips and back with correction of stretch marks.
