Abdomen Aesthetics· Cerrahi, Erkek, Kadın
Surgical removal of lipoidosis around belly, skin excessiveness and dystonia, which form gradually and cannot be removed with irregular actions. Abdomen aesthetics include hip, pubic area and lumbar region.
Depending on whether the procedure includes skin, this procedure, called “abdominoplasty”, is sometimes combined with liposuction. Abdomen is re-formed and a flatter, stretched and vivid belly is created. Surgical procedure takes 2 to 3 hours and sutures are left hidden in underwear. Hospital stay is 1-2 days.
As soon as the patient recovers after operation, they are walked, and they are only allowed to move with a protective corset for 2 weeks. Complete return to daily activities takes 15 days. Stretching-reinforcement sutures are applied to recturs and other abs, if requested, therefore providing a more tight re-formation to the body contour.
Recovery process is defined by many factors. Among these factors are patient age, general health status, whether there is a disease that requires special follow-up, moving ability, wound healing ability, time period and size of the procedure to be done, whether there is an additional intervention during operation, type, depth and quality of anesthesia applied on the patient, cooperation of the patient and their obedience to doctor, etc. can be listed.
In the case the operation “fully” realizes, since the procedures of few or much fat extraction with liposuction, tight reinforcement of muscles from middle abdomen, or even from just below the rib cage, until one handspan below the belly and suturing of skin in a stretched form, will have been done, the patient will have lost 4-5 kilos, therefore a fast, easy, untroubled and instant recovery will not be possible.
Abdominoplasty may cause loss of work strength for 7-10 days. In the recovery process, the requirements in risky patients are varsity socks for the first 3 days, abdominal corset for 10 days and doctor check-up at 3rd – 7th and 15th days after discharge. While depending on person, complete return to daily activities is 7 days average and sports activities can be started on day 15, but heavy sports activities will require weeks.
After the procedure of abdomen stretching, removal of cracking and skin desintegration seen in women with multiple pregnancies and people with frequent weight gain-loss is another advantage of this procedure.
In order to avoid rendering this outlook again in continuation of these procedures, a lifestyle containing nutrition nd exercise programs, and a more active body wherein insulin resistance and inclination to diabetes have declined, it has been scientifically proven that a permanent and general recovery is observed in all body systems, starting with cardio-vascular and muscular-articular-skeletal system.
The number of abdomen stretching (body forming) procedures conducted on male individuals is on a gradual increase. It is a known fact that men with a flat nd tight abdomen nd an aesthetically good look are perceived in social life as more successful, feisty, determined nd self-reliant compared to their rivals.
Singular abdomen procedures, by now, have been replaced by combined operations of body forming, liposuction nd contour provision. While mini abdominoplasty is considered sufficient in svelte female individuals with single complaints of fat accumulation under belly-looseness in abdomen and drooping in skin, liposuction and contourplasty is a must in overweight patients with general body lipoidosis. Since operation duration, therefore operation risk, will increase in such additional interventions, there is searching for approached that will enable completion of abdominoplasties in shorter time as a developed technic. A complete abdominoplasty (which normally takes 4 hours) can be completed in under 2 hours, with this method which we have developed over the years nd patients can be discharged the next day while risks of this operation having been minimized.
It is remarkable that many weight-losing tools, technics nd methods which are often displayed on magazines among current subjects directed to body forming and zonal fat, are not efficient on many structures under skin nd are not able to prevent drooping on the skin, therefore falling off the agenda like flash in the pan. Such attempts directed to zonal fat-burning are single-dimensional solution attempts for i.e. a 3-dimensional problem. Their effects are limited and variable, and also not sustainable, and these may only be used on suitable patients as complementary to body forming application by abdomen stretching or liposuction or lipo-implantation (liposculpture).
There may occur a weight loss of 30 to 90 kilograms in patients who have bariatric stomach reduction r small intestine shortening with the purpose of weight loss, therefore roundup operation for the whole body, which will have been deformed by such operations, shall be required. Post-bariatric surgery is the name of surgical operations applied to such patients. With this technic, corrective operations to half of the body (breasts, femur, abdomen, arms, etc.) can be applied on selected patients. As in all aesthetical operations, these operation technics must be realized by experts with plastic surgery training.
