Particularly women experience stretch marks and excessive skin caused by excessive weight gain and loss after giving birth. Maintaining a thin and healthy waist and stomach area is provided by a abdomen lift (abdominoplasty) surgery.
This surgery is 2,5-3 hours long. It is performed through 2 cuts from both sides of the groin, which is concealed in the bikini area, by narrowing down the abdominals and re-shaping the umbilicus.
Performing a liposuction after this surgery helps the waist and belly area look better and more sportive.
For the first 3 days post-surgery, stiched areas should feel stretched. Therefore, walking while standing too straight is not allowed. A corset must be worn for 3-4 weeks. During this period, patient should avoid heavy exercising.
In another method called Mini Abdominoplasty, the main difference is umbiculus is not involved in the surgery while stretching and lifting the skin and abdominals. This surgery has a faster healing process.
