Abdominoplasty or liposuction: the pros and cons of the procedure through the eyes of a doctor.
The correct abdominal contour is restored using abdominoplasty – a surgical operation in which the doctor removes excess fat and excess skin in the lower abdomen. With abdominoplasty, the surgeon can suture diastasis, correct the umbilical hernia, move the navel or make a new one, according to indications.
Another option is liposuction or liposculpture. This operation is performed through punctures, using cannulas, large incisions are not needed here. Thus, abdominoplasty and liposuction have the same goal – to make the figure more beautiful! But liposuction is a broader operation, since it can be performed not only on the stomach.
Plastic surgeon Dmitry Alexandrovich Melnikov – on how to restore harmony and find a flat stomach.
Nowadays, a beautiful and healthy body is an indicator of vital success. Active people want to keep their youthful appearance, to look attractive, but often their plans are spoiled by ruthless time, which, together with poor nutrition, a sedentary lifestyle and other costs, does not at all favor our figure.
In women, childbirth is often a major blow. To remove fat from the abdomen, restore its proper shape, many people exhaust themselves with numerous workouts, switch from one diet to another, but the problem is not solved. Both liposuction and abdominoplasty in this context can be considered as the most effective methods of body correction after childbirth.
Each of these procedures, respectively, has its pros and cons. Abdominoplasty is a “heavy artillery” of abdominal plastic. It is carried out in cases where with the help of liposuction, special results can not be achieved. That is, the main plus of abdominoplasty is its effectiveness even in very “neglected” situations. But abdominoplasty has a significant recovery period, during which it is necessary to strictly observe all the recommendations of the doctor and be observed in the clinic. As for the complications, they are more associated with oversight during preparation for the operation, with the general condition of the patient’s body.
Abdominal liposuction is more easily tolerated than abdominoplasty due to the shorter period of postoperative rehabilitation. The peculiarity of liposuction is that all vessels, as a rule, remain intact. However, laser and ultrasonic liposuction have risks of tissue damage, so we do not use them.
By the way, if you decide on liposuction and abdominoplasty, then remember that after operations you should change your diet, adhere to a diet. After all, fat can be stored in other parts of the body.
What to agree on – abdominoplasty or liposuction – is up to you based on medical indications and after consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon. A true professional will always tell you the right decision, draw up an individual strategy for your treatment and postoperative rehabilitation.
