The abdominoplasty restores tonicity and tension to a relaxed abdomen after major and sudden loss of weight or pregnancies. It is possible to intervene both on the skin and if necessary on the muscles and in some cases the operation can also be combined with liposuction, when there is a great amount of adipose tissue. Abdominoplasty is a more invasive operation compared to liposuction since it produces scars requiring a greater recovery time. For abdominoplasty operations in Milan please contact Dr. Angelo Villa who, thanks to his ten-year long experience can give your abdomen the look you want.
Abdominoplasty surgery method
During the abdominoplasty operation done under general anesthesia at the private hospital Villa Letizia in Milan, the entire abdominal skin is peeled off and placed in traction, up to the costal arch. The scars vary in size based on the amount of skin removed and will anyhow be under the slip so that they are covered. In less serious cases, it is also possible to perform a partial abdominoplasty where the cut is shorter and the subumbilical area is operated. In this case, a liposuction operation can be associated to further improve the outcome.
Duration of the abdomen operation
Abdominoplasty lasts around two hours and is done under general anesthesia. An overnight stay of 1-2 nights in hospital is required. The post-op requires a few days of rest and the use of a containment girdle for about a month.
Abdominoplasty pre and post-op procedure
After a thorough visit, Dr. Angelo Villa will prescribe a series of tests prior to a visit with the anesthesiologist. The patient is admitted the same day of the operation. The patient will be taken to one of the reserved rooms at the Private Hospital Villa Letizia in Milan to wait for the operation. All the necessary medications and care will be provided by the highly specialized nurses at the hospital. A week’s rest and no sports activities for about one month is required.
