Many women long to have gorgeous figures but find that this is increasingly difficult to achieve the older they get. Whether this is due to multiple pregnancies, major weight loss, past illness and surgeries or simple genetics is not always the issue. The true issue is that no matter how hard these women work out and how many calories they cut, they are still left with sagging midsections. When women deal mainly with excessive skin and underlying tissues around the abdomen, an abdominoplasty can help. Commonly called a tummy tuck, this treatment can provide the miracle that these women long for, tightening up their abdominal muscles, removing sagging skin, and lifting drooping tissues. At Real Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in Melbourne, Mr. Salerno can help women get the figures of their dreams.
First, women should understand what abdominoplasties are truly designed to treat. This procedure is not for women who have excessive amounts of fat around their midsections. We recommend that women be at or near their goal weights before undergoing this procedure. Women who have stubborn pockets of fat around their abdomens may benefit from a dual procedure that combines the popular liposuction technique for permanently getting rid of fat cells with the abdominoplasty for tightening loose and sagging skin and getting rid of excessive tissues.
The way that this procedure is performed depends on the surgeon’s preference and on the needs of the patient. In some cases, the patient may be completely asleep with general anesthesia during the procedure. This is most common in cases when the surgeon is performing more than one treatment at the same time. However, some women may need only local anesthetic and an IV sedative to keep them comfortable throughout the entire experience. All women are sent home the same day to recover where they are the most comfortable.
Depending on the amount of work that the surgeon did, the patient may need up to a couple of weeks before returning to work or other daily activities. The hold on strenuous activities, such as exercise, will be even longer than this. However, with the proper post-operative and home care, women can experience fabulous healing and amazing results with their abdominoplasties in Melbourne.
Women who have had abdominoplasties are incredibly pleased with their results. Their abdomens appear smooth and flat once again, and their abdominals often function and look better than ever. This procedure is a great choice for women who are generally healthy but who want to have sleek, trim bellies, perfect for showing off in public and private.
