About 4 weeks before the surgery, you should reduce smoking. Moreover alcohol should be avoided. About 2 weeks before the surgery you should not take anticoagulants (Aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid containing drugs). In case you are a woman and you are on the birth control pill you should stop taking it for 3 weeks before the surgery.
In order to conduct the surgery you need a blood count and an electrocardiogram. In case you want to have the results before your appointment with your surgeon, your general practitioner can provide you with them. In this case you can bring the results with you (the results should not be older than two weeks). However, it is not mandatory to conduct these tests beforehand. The tests that you need in order to decide if you are ready for the operation will also be made directly at the clinic.
Before the surgery you will be informed during a detailed consultation talk on how the surgery is done. During this consultation you will be informed about possible complications and risks. It is advisable that you write down all the questions you have concerning the surgery, before your appointment at the clinic.
The surgery will be conducted under general anaesthesia. Before the anaesthesia you will be advised by an anaesthetist about the risks, complications and the course of the narcosis. The anaesthetist will be present during the surgery. During narcosis risks or complications can occur, depending on previous diseases and your general state of health.
Before the surgery the affected areas are marked on the skin. For an abdominoplasty the incision is placed just above the pubic hair. The incision runs from one pelvic bone to the other. The belly button is separated from the surrounding tissue. In order to lift abdominal muscles and fix them to the new position, the skin of the region from the abdominal wall to the rips is lifted. Usually, the waste can be made slimmer and formed.
With the lifting of the abdominal wall (partial lift) the incision is usually much smaller and separating the belly button from the surrounding tissue may be avoided. During the surgery thin drainages are inserted. After about 2-3 days the drainages are removed, depending of the scale of the surgery. The wound is closed by a wafer-thin suture. Right after the surgery you get compression clothing which you have to wear for 4-6 weeks day and night. The wound healing and the lifting effect can be improved by wearing the compression clothing.
One day after the surgery you will have a follow-up examination. Please only take the drugs that you get from the doctor in the clinic. To make it easier for you, you should have an accompanying person with you, as you should not drive yourself when travelling home. Make sure that you take enough breaks.
The stitches can usually be taken out after 10-14 days by your general practitioner. Swellings, haematoma, and possible feelings of numbness subside after a short period of time. For your well-being you should allow yourself a period of recovery of two weeks after the surgery. Please avoid bending or tearing (i. e. when lying down or getting up) of the suture. You should also avoid physical stress and sports for about 2 months.
You should avoid sun, solarium, and sauna for 8-10 weeks. Usually you can take showers again after the wounds are completely closed. After about 3 weeks you can apply scar ointments or crèmes on the scars. You can support the connective tissue of the abdominal wall by regularly applying lotion, taking hot and cold showers, and peeling. Thus the elasticity of the skin can be obtained.
Like after every other surgery, there are risks of possible infections, unaesthetic scars, enduring feelings of tautness, pain, and haematoma. A circulatory disorder as a result of nicotine can lead to a wound necrosis. Pain or a dragging felling in the affected area, usually subside after several days. The pain after the surgery can be alleviated by pain killers.
Like after every surgery small bleedings cannot be excluded. Therefore, you should avoid taking acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin) and other acetylsalicylic acid containing drugs two weeks before the surgery.
After a surgery there can occur blood clots in the main veins (thrombosis), these can be carried further and thus block a blood vessel (embolism). As prevention it can be considered to take anticoagulant drugs (i. e. injections of heparin).
In order to prevent thrombosis and embolisms you should move your legs and feet regularly. Theoretically possible complications are a necrosis of the belly button and disorders in wound healing which could lead to conspicuous scars. Even when the wound healing is normal, scars can initially become red or harden. After a while they will fade, they become inconspicuous.
The description of the operation is generally phrased and can’t replace the personal consultation with the cosmetic surgeon. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to show before/after pictures, due to the fact that this is forbidden by the Law on Advertising in the Health Care System.
