Abdominoplasty

Most frequent questions and answers

What is an abdominoplasty?

An abdominoplasty procedure is a common procedure performed by Dr. Beber where excess skin and fat is removed from the abdomen to improve the contour and appearance of the abdomen. Often during this procedure the abdominal muscles are tightened together to make the abdominal contours even better.

Who is a good candidate for abdominoplasty procedures?

People who are in good health but have extra abdominal skin from either pregnancy or weight loss are excellent candidates for abdominoplasty procedures.

How is an abdominoplasty performed?

Abdominoplasty procedures are usually done with patients comfortably asleep under a general anesthetic. Dr. Beber will make an incision in the lower abdomen, which usually extends from hip to hip. An incision is also usually needed around the belly button to get the best effect. These incisions will allow Dr. Beber to remove the extra skin and fat from the abdomen and also tighten the abdominal muscles. Patients who have only moderate skin excess in the lower abdomen can sometimes undergo a “mini-abdominoplasty” where the scar in shorter. The incisions are then closed using dissolving stitches. Many patients often combine an abdominoplasty with liposuction of the “love handles” to maximize the aesthetic outcome.

How long is the recovery time after an abdominoplasty?

Patients are usually able to return home the same day after an abdominoplasty procedure. Patients are encouraged to get up and walk around the house frequently to help minimize complications, but should avoid any strenuous activity or heavy lifting for approximately 4 weeks. It is important for people to protect their incisions during this time by preventing excess pulling on the incisions. For this reason patients are encouraged to sleep with extra pillows behind their head and a pillow under their legs to keep the hips flexed at night during the first 2 weeks. In addition, patients wear a special compression garment under their clothes for 4 to 6 weeks to help minimize swelling and to help in the healing process. Usually 1 or 2 surgical drains are placed in the abdomen during the surgery to help prevent any fluid buildup. These drains are removed during the 1st or 2nd week after surgery after which patients are able to return to work.
