How is the procedure carried out?
The patient is treated under general anesthesia. The skin and fat of the abdominal wall is loosened and the navel is separated from the surrounding skin. Excess skin and subcutaneous skin is removed and the skin is stretched out. As part of the surgery, the abdominal muscles are reinforced along with the entire abdominal wall. The entire procedure lasts two to three hours depending on the extent of the work carried out. With a smaller "drop" of the tummy, smaller scale surgery is possible, i.e. a mini abdominoplasty.
How long does recovery take?
The patient remains at the clinic for a minim of two days and is then release into home care. The patient should move as little as possible two weeks following the surgery and make sure to not put stress on the abdomen. The patient should rest for two to three weeks following surgery. Full physical activity is possible anywhere from six to eight weeks after the procedure. The scar goes from hip to hip in an arch that points slightly towards the pubic area. The scar is not visible when a patients wear swimwear or underwear (bikini line). In time, it fades but does not disappear entirely. The effect of a flat belly following surgery is long-lasting and significant.
