This surgery is performed under general anesthesia, for this procedure an incision is made at the level of the underwear line in order to raise the skin and achieve the best results. The abdominal muscles and oblique muscles are then joined together so that the abdomen is flat and with a defined silhouette. The skin is then stretched, excess is removed, the navel is reconstructed and sutured.
The procedure lasts approximately one and a half to two hours, for the patient's safety and according to our institution's management guidelines, the patient must be hospitalized at night, especially to monitor vital signs, adequate pain control and supervise the development of hematomas or hemorrhages that require re-emergency surgery.
It is recommended to have your abdomen covered with a bandage or an elastic girdle, which should be worn for one month.
Early wandering in this surgery is fundamental, as is lipo sculpture, to avoid the formation of clots in the legs that can result in embolisms or detachment of these to the heart and lungs, which can cause severe respiratory problems or death of the patient. For this reason, it is essential to use the white stockings that are placed before surgery, exercise the calves in the immediate post-operative period and start walking as soon as the pain and general discomfort allow it. An anticoagulant called low molecular weight heparins is sometimes sent, which are subcutaneously placed for the next 5 to 7 days and prevent thrombo-embolic phenomena.
It is recommended for people who have had pregnancies and are left with excessive flaccidity and stretch marks, or people who have suffered obesity. It is not a surgery to lose weight or lose weight, it is intended only to improve the contour of the abdomen and its strengthening, usually associated with liposuction on the flanks and some regions of the thighs.
It is recommended to have a plan for weight reduction, a fitness program and adequate nutritional control one month after surgery.
Physical activity can begin a month after surgery and strengthening of the abdomen can only begin after 3 months of surgery.
