The procedure of surgery of the abdominoplasty

Following are the few steps related to the procedure of abdominoplasty:

Step 1

Preoperative preparation: Every expert specialist of his field conducts the blood tests of the patient before the surgery to evaluate his overall health. He may conduct the CBC’s which is a blood picture. It is conducted to determine the levels of blood cells like RBC’s leading to the identification of any disease prevailing in the body. Further, he will determine your LFTs, RFT’s and Hb to understand that you are healthy and physically ready for the surgery. He will also record your blood sugar and blood pressure levels. You will also be explained in detail the benefits, outcomes, and long-lasting effects of abdominoplasty.

Step 2

Preparation for anesthesia: Once you are done with the pre-operative procedure. The doctor will call you on a particular date to carry out the procedure. Before surgery, you will dress up in a hospital gown. You will be asked to choose between intravenous anesthesia or general anesthesia. It merely depends upon your choice. A doctor can only guide you about it.

Step 3

Making the incision: Once the anesthesia is administered, the patient feels relaxed and his whole body gets numb. He doesn’t feel at all what's going on. Therefore, the doctor will make a horizontal incision into the tummy. This incision will range from the belly button to the pubic hairline. The amount of excessive skin located on the belly button and surrounding region will determine the length and size of the cut to be made. The muscles inside the skin of the abdomen will be enhanced themselves if the skin from the outside gets toned properly. Another incision may be required around the navel zone to get rid of the excessive fat from the region of the upper abdomen. As we bring down a window shade to cover the window, similarly the skin from the upper region of the abdomen is brought downwards and trimmed to the desired measurements. Later it gets stitched properly. A new opening is created to the belly button by making the incisions. The belly button is also positioned with the help of stitches.

Step 4

Stitching of the incision: The incisions are closed by stitching. Some doctors may use clips to close the openings of incisions while the best painless mode is the placement of adhesive glue which gradually binds the skin together.

Step 5

Postoperative care: You will be shifted to the post-operative ward right after the surgery. You will be monitored unless the effects of the anesthesia wear off and the patient gets back to its normal situation. You may feel soreness and pain in the region of surgery. But do not worry at all. Keeping all the conditions of post-surgery in mind, he will prescribe you painkillers and antibiotics to spend the rest of the days free from pain and infection.

Step 6

Outcomes: Outcomes of the abdominoplasty are always fruitful. You will find the difference while glazing at yourself. You will be glad to see a perfectly trimmed, flattened, toned tummy. This will represent youthfulness and the proper harmony of the body. Your body will be properly contoured into a smart and presentable shape. You will gradually find a difference in your attitude while meeting and greeting people. You will feel a boost in energy.
