Some real stories of our patients

Indications for abdominoplasty

Indications for abdominoplasty are the following aesthetic deformations of the anterior abdominal wall:

  • postpartum deformities, which are manifested by changes in the shape of the abdomen and the presence of significant skin stretch marks;
  • the presence of excess adipose tissue, the formation of skin and fat folds in the form of an “apron” in obese patients. In this case, not only aesthetic indications but also medical ones related to weight loss come to the fore;
  • age-related changes in the form of sagging skin and decreased tone of the musculo-aponeurotic skeleton (in the form of “beer” belly for men);
  • congenital and acquired defects of the anterior abdominal wall (hernias and scars);
  • dissatisfaction with the shape of the abdomen.

The severity of excess skin, subcutaneous fat layer, tone of the musculo-aponeurotic skeleton, the presence of hernias determines the surgical access. Horizontal (in the suprapubic region), vertical incisions or a combination thereof are made. Abdominoplasty removes excess skin and subcutaneous fat, sutures, stretches the rectus abdominis, which determines the formation of the waist and the optimal shape of the abdomen, and also moves the navel. Quite often this operation is accompanied by liposuction.

In cases where there is a discrepancy of the abdominal muscles in the absence of excess skin, which can be observed in the postpartum period, endoscopic abdominoplasty is used. Its advantage is to make small (up to 1 cm) incisions near the navel or in the suprapubic region, which will be invisible after surgery.

After the operation, it is necessary to use compression underwear for at least a month, limit physical activity and see a doctor regularly.

Performing abdominoplasty leads to a significant and lasting improvement in the aesthetics of the abdomen, as well as has a tangible positive medical result associated with weight loss.
