Abdominoplasty

The abdomen area is ofthe plagued by dysmorphisms and blemishes that weigh down the body's outline; an unbalanced diet, a sedentary lifestyle, pregnancies, weight fluctuations can cause the stretching of the skin, and layers of fat that could become aesthetically unpleasant. Unlike in the past, today's beauty canons require a falt, toned belly area, and well defined sides.

Abdominoplasty, also known as abdomen surgery, allows for the removal of skin and fat excess from the upper and lower abdomen. It's one of hte most often requested procedurees, although it must not be embarked upon lightly, as it can leave permanente markings, which can however be easily hidden with a bikini.

Upper abdomen

Depending on the gravity of the situation, many different solutions are available when it comes to abdominal surgery: mini-abdominoplasty, which can be performed below the navel, and complete abdominoplasty, when the upper part must be adjusted as well; in the former case the proceudre takes less than a day, in the latter, a day surgery is required.  
Being a heavily customized procedure, abdominal surgery requires an in-depth consultation in order to evaluate a variety of variables, including skin elasticity and potential problems in tissue healing.

At the end of the surgical procedure, a drain must be applied for 24/48  hrs, along with protective bandages, which must be worn for at least two weeks.

An abdominoplasty can also be the perfect occasion to perform a liposuction, should the presence of fat tissue be excessive, or should other parts of the body be in neeed of remodeling.
