Is abdominoplasty right for me?
The best candidates to undergo abdominoplasty are women or men who are concerned about the accumulation of fat or excess skin on their abdomen, whom fail to to improve the situation throughout diet or exercise. This surgery is especially helpful for women who have had multiple pregnancies, after which the skin and abdominal muscles have relaxed, and have not recovered their initial tension.
Abdominoplasty can also improve the loss of skin elasticity in older people, a situation often associated with moderate obesity. Patients who need to lose a lot of weight should postpone the surgery, like women who are trying to get pregnant or contemplate the possibility in the near future, as during surgery vertical abdominal muscles tighten and may return to relax during the pregnancy. If there are previous scars on the abdomen, this surgery may be contraindicated.
Can abdominoplastia cause scarring?
Yes, yet the scars remain at the pubic hair level, extending roughly toward the iliac crests, depending on the tissue that has been adjusted. Under normal conditions, this scar is hardly noticeable the year after the abdominoplasty, they are only preceptible the first months after the procedure. Thus, the abdomen appears reduced, no scars are seen and the patient feels better about him or herself.
Bare in mind, that these scars are the solution to your problem as they are easily hidden beneath the underwear and are usually good scars (white and thin).
