Abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery used to remove excess fat and skin in the abdominal area. 

Physical exercises and healthy eating don’t always help. As the body ages, it becomes harder to fight the “fat apron” in the abdominal area that also causes physical inconveniences and sometimes has a negative effect on health. Abdominoplasty is one of 5 most popular plastic surgeries, and the scar of the lifting procedure becomes practically invisible over time.

Abdominoplasty is often used not just out of aesthetic concerns, but in order to improve the patient’s health. Don’t deny yourself a good posture! At Avanta Clinic, abdominoplasty is one of the most demanded procedures. 

This type of surgery requires a longer recovery period.

The final result becomes noticeable in a year.

The recovery period is 6 months.

During the first few weeks, the patient must wear a compression corset.

Indications for abdominoplasty:

  • Stretched skin after carrying a large fetus
  • Sagging skin after weight loss
  • Excess fat congestion and impossibility to remove it otherwise
  • Abdominal wall flaccidity or ptosis
  • Hernias
  • Stretched abdominal muscles
  • A big number of stretch marks and scars from surgeries

Contraindications

  • Pregnancy
  • Lactation
  • Diabetes
  • Malignant tumors
  • Chronic or acute heart failure
  • Blood diseases
  • Endocrine-related obesity

It’s highly important to follow all instructions after abdominoplasty.

How long will the recovery take?

Depending on each organism’s individual characteristics, the recovery period varies between several weeks and several months. For the first five days after the surgery, strict bed rest is recommended either in the hospital or at home.

It’s important to know that during the first weeks following the surgery, antibiotics and pain medication can be prescribed to the patient. It also depends on the individual characteristics of an organism.

During the recovery period, the patient must lie, sit, and even sleep in a slightly flexed position: it helps the tissues heal faster.

What can abdominoplasty be combined with?

At Avanta Clinic, before and after the abdominoplasty, you can take a course of instrumental procedures to strengthen and improve the quality of your skin. Among non-invasive procedures, Indiba and Venus Legacy are highly popular.
