Our surgeon will face you with a list of things you need to take care of before the surgery itself. During the consultations, you might get asked some questions and get some instructions that are similar to the following:
- Reduce smoking and alcohol levels
- Why are you undergoing the procedure in the first place?
- Introduction of risks and potential complications
You might get asked some other questions, depending on the severity of your case as well as your personal habits and medical history.
This procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and often requires a one-night stay in the facility. Therefore, it’s not something you should be too worried when it comes to longevity and severity of the surgery itself.
The surgeon will likely make a horizontal incision just above your pubic hairline. Bear in mind, the location of the incision greatly depends on the area that requires an intervention. The procedure lasts from two up to four hours, depending on the case.
The recovery process is different for everyone, but there are some things you should prepare for. For example, make sure to arrange your obligations and business schedule properly. You can expect to be inactive for at least six weeks as far as strenuous activities go. The recovery period is usually shorter for the special abdominoplasty, but the same rules apply.
A special abdominoplasty usually results in a tighter belly area. As mentioned, this procedure is a great solution for people who struggle with excess skin and fat, especially after a massive weight loss.
