The last meal before the procedure can be performed no later than 12 hours.
Types of operations
- Classical, when excess tissue and fat deposits are removed through one incision.
- Endoscopic. The doctor makes small incisions, so traumatization of tissues is minimal. Simultaneous liposuction is possible. Contraindications — hernia. Localization is the lower abdomen. With this kind of intervention, the divergence of the rectus abdominal muscles is eliminated, but tissues are not removed.
- Miniabdominoplasty. It is used only in the lower abdomen to improve its contour. It is possible to remove excess tissues.
Taking the operation

- Cuttings are performed, unnecessary tissues and excessive fatty deposits are excised.

After abdominoplasty, the patient is provided with drainage systems for draining liquids, therefore it is important to be under the supervision of doctors for at least 2 days. Assign antibiotics, pain medications, etc. After the operation, you need to wear compression underwear. Limitation of physical activity — at least two months.
Risks and side effects
Abdominoplasty is a rather complicated operation. It is important to follow the recommendations of the doctor implicitly, so that the rehabilitation period is the most effective.
Abdominoplasty is not a method of treating obesity, because the cause of the problem is not eliminated. It makes sense to perform this operation if the weight in the future is stable and pregnancy is not planned.
