More About Abdominoplasty
This surgical procedure is often performed to rid the abdominal area of excess fat and skin after a major weight loss. The sagging flesh left behind by major weight reduction comes off and the muscles beneath the tightened skin are also trimmed and reattached to provide the tension that holds the abdomen in position without the bulge.
An abdominoplasty is also often a choice made by women who have developed an abdominal bulge from pregnancy or from weight fluctuations over the years. For women in particular this procedure contributes to the restoration of a more youthful profile throughout the midsection.
The surgery itself requires an incision that is cut horizontally across the abdomen, sloping down from the tops of the thighs to a low point at the pubic hair line. Through this incision the doctor can remove excess fat from the abdominal area and, with the use of liposuction, along the area above the hips at the sides of the body. As the fat is removed the skin is pulled down and excess skin is cut away to provided just the necessary covering for an abdomen without the bulge.
Just as the muscles that provide abdominal tension are tightened and reattached, the surgeon may also shorten and reattach the fascia, or internal connective tissue that also provides support to the abdominal wall. As the mass of that abdominal bulge is reduced the supportive internal structure must be tightened in order to restore the support for a new, low profile abdomen.
After the internal removal of excess fat is completed and the skin is cut back, it will be draped and sutured along the incision line. The scar left by the incision will heal and fade over time, and if properly placed by an experienced surgeon it will be easily concealed beneath a swimsuit or the bottom half of a bikini. Following the surgery and the suturing, the wounds will be bandaged and possibly wrapped in a compression garment to hold all of the newly reattached muscle, connective tissue and skin in place while the healing begins.
Many women opt for an abdominoplasty as an initial effort to reclaim a more youthful look. It will certainly provide a thinner and younger look for the midsection, and the abdomen will retain that contour if there is no substantial weight gain and loss on a repetitive basis. For women who have had multiple pregnancies, that abdominal bulge cannot be exercised away.
The surgery encourages many women to continue to seek a more youthful profile and leads them to exercise programs that will help to accomplish just that. For women who have long sought to regain some of the firmness and smooth contours of their younger days, an abdominoplasty is a big first step that leads to other efforts at a slimmer body and improved self esteem.
