Mini abdominoplasty

You can tighten your belly and get the desired shape with the help of mini-abdominoplasty!

Lower abdomen plastic

Mini abdominoplasty

Mini-abdominoplasty is a low-traumatic surgical intervention that allows you to correct the shape of the abdomen in the lower part (that is, over the pubic bone). Unlike classical abdominoplasty, it is easier and faster. It is for this reason that mini-abdominoplasty is so in demand among the patients of the clinic of Andrey Kharkov.

Mini-abdominoplasty is chosen by representatives of the beautiful half of humanity who strive to recreate the ideal shape of the abdomen. At the same time, mini-abdominoplasty is not traumatic.

Indications for mini-abdominoplasty

Among the main indications for mini-abdominoplasty:

  • Descent of the anterior abdominal wall.
  • The presence of stretch marks (striae) in the lower and middle abdomen.
  • Laxity of the abdominal skin.
  • Decreased tone of the abdominal muscles.
  • Bulging of the anterior abdominal wall as a result of hernia.
  • The presence of an “apron” on the abdomen, which was formed by an excess amount of subcutaneous tissue.

The above flaws can be eliminated with the help of a short operation – mini-abdominoplasty.

The causes of the above flaws are: malnutrition, pregnancy, rapid weight loss, liposuction, surgical interventions on the abdominal organs (for example, after an operation to remove appendicitis).

 Particular features of mini-abdominoplasty

Before any surgical intervention in the clinic of Andrey Kharkov, a preliminary consultation is mandatory. Also at this stage, contraindications to surgery are identified.

Thus, it is possible to determine the state of health of the patient as a whole, and also to exclude all concomitant diseases. An important point, in addition to the above, is to identify the causes and extent of pathological changes.

In order for mini-abdominoplasty to be as effective as possible and without negative consequences, special attention should be paid to the preparatory stage.

Among other things, it is obligatory to:

  1. Stop smoking and drinking alcohol.
  2. Postpone taking medications that affect the blood clotting process.
  3. Follow the prescribed diet (if necessary). Please note: if there is a risk of subcutaneous fat formation, an additional consultation with a nutritionist is required.

Mini-abdominoplasty is an operation performed under general anesthesia. Duration – within 60 minutes. If the so-called “paraumbilical plasty” is performed, the surgeon makes several incisions in the navel (their length in most cases does not exceed 15 centimeters). It is through these incisions that the subcutaneous fatty tissue and excess skin are removed.

Sutures after such an operation are made with a special suture made of absorbable materials.

If the incision is concentrated in the bikini area, excess tissue is initially mobilized at the level of the navel. The next step is muscle suturing using cosmetic sutures. In addition, the corset of muscles can be additionally strengthened.

Rehabilitation period

After a mini-abdominoplasty, the recovery process is quite comfortable. During the day after the surgery the patient stays in the hospital of the clinic of Andrey Kharkov. After this, the rehabilitation period continues at home. The patient must wear special compression garments for 4 weeks.

There are no pronounced painful sensations. During the examination period, the surgeon monitors the general condition of the area of ​​surgery and the condition of the patient in general.

In the vast majority of patients mini-abdominoplasty goes without any complications. The following recommendations of a plastic surgeon should be adhered to:

  1. It is forbidden to engage in active sports – for a month.
  2. Under the ban – visiting the sauna, bath, solarium.
  3. It is recommended to use special sunscreens with a high SPF factor (over 35).

The main stage of rehabilitation lasts within 10-12 days.  If the patient follows all of the above recommendations, no complications will arise.

Contraindications for mini-abdominoplasty

Mini-abdominoplasty is not performed if the following contraindications are present:

  1. Obesity. The patient should lose weight to the recommended levels before the operation. Most often, for severe overweight, a standard (complete) abdominoplasty is prescribed.
  2. Diabetes mellitus.
  3. There are inflammatory processes in the correction zone.
  4. Somatic diseases.
  5. Problems with blood clotting.
  6. The period of pregnancy and lactation.
  7. Problems with the heart and blood vessels.
  8. Oncology.

It is also necessary to postpone the operation if you are planning a pregnancy in the near future. If you want to have a mini-abdominoplasty after childbirth, you can think about it no earlier than in a year. This time is more than enough for the tone of the tissues of the anterior abdominal wall to return to normal, and the body had time to recover fully.

If pregnancy occurs in the first months after the operation, it can provoke the re-formation of the “apron” of the skin.
