Abdominoplasty can create a drastic change in appearance. It can reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. An unwanted effect is a permanent scar, which can extend across the hips depending on the extent of the surgery but is hidden under the bikini line.
Dr. Lesavoy performs a number of abdominoplasty or tummy tuck procedures in his Beverly Hills office. He can provide a customized treatment plan based on your goals, anatomy, and results of the physical exam. The procedure can be performed in conjunction with liposuction for the most optimal results.
Top 5 Things to Consider If You Are Contemplating Abdominoplasty:
1. Purpose and Goals:
Understand the primary reason for seeking abdominoplasty. Is it to remove excess skin after significant weight loss or pregnancy? Or to tighten weakened abdominal muscles? Clearly defining your goals will help you communicate your desires to the surgeon and ensure you get the results you’re aiming for.
2. Surgeon’s Expertise:
Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in abdominoplasty is crucial. Review their before-and-after photos, ask about their surgical approach, and ensure they have a history of successful outcomes. The surgeon’s expertise plays a significant role in achieving the desired results and minimizing complications.
3. Recovery and Downtime:
Abdominoplasty is a major surgery, and recovery can take several weeks. You’ll need to avoid strenuous activities, including lifting heavy objects, for a specified period. It’s essential to understand the recovery process, follow post-operative care instructions, and ensure you have the necessary support during this time, whether it’s help at home or time off work.
4. Potential Risks and Complications:
As with any surgical procedure, abdominoplasty carries risks. These can include scarring, infection, blood clots, poor wound healing, or complications related to anesthesia. Discuss potential risks with your surgeon and understand the measures taken to minimize these risks.
5. Long-Term Satisfaction and Maintenance:
While a tummy tuck provides long-lasting results, significant weight fluctuations after the procedure can diminish the outcome. It’s essential to maintain a stable weight and adopt a healthy lifestyle to enjoy the results for years to come. Discuss with your surgeon what to expect long-term and any recommendations for maintaining your new abdominal contour.
Abdominoplasty can offer transformative results for individuals looking to achieve a flatter, more toned abdominal appearance. However, it’s a significant decision that requires thorough research, understanding, and consultation with a skilled surgeon. Being well-informed and prepared will lead to a more positive experience and optimal results.
