How does abdominoplasty works?
Sudden weight loss and even pregnancy can lead to sagging skin in your abdominal area. And this sagging abdomen doesn’t give you a look you desire. Thus Abdominoplasty helps you to get rid of this problem by removal of fat, tightening of muscles, and removal of excess skin on your abdominal area.
Procedure for abdominoplasty
During abdominoplasty surgery, the surgeon makes an incision on the abdomen to remove the fat between your belly button and the pubic area. And the fascia that lies above the abdominal muscle is tightened with permanent sutures. A skin adhesive, clips, and tapes are used to close the incision. This surgery gives patients a tighter and firmer abdomen.
The target area for abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty can be used to solve the following target areas:
- Drooping skin on the abdomen
- Excess skin on the belly button
- If liposuction didn’t improve your abdominal area.
- If you have a weak abdominal wall.
Are there any risks or side effects?
Yes, like any other surgeries, an abdominoplasty in India has certain risks associated.
- Risk of adverse reaction to anesthesia
- Excessive bleeding during incision
