SURGERY OF THE ABDOMEN- ABDOMINOPLASTY, "TUMMY TUCK"


Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as "tummy tuck," is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall if also needed. Please be aware that the surgery does produce a permanent scar which, depending on the extent of the original condition and surgery required to correct it, can extend from hip to hip, shorter or longer.

THE BEST CANDIDATES FOR ABDOMINOPLASTY


tummy tuck The surgery is particularly helpful to women who, through multiple pregnancies, have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin beyond the point where they cannot return to normal. Loss of skin elasticity in older patients, which frequently occurs with slight obesity, can also be improved.

Patients who intend to lose a lot of weight should postpone the surgery. Also, women who plan future pregnancies should wait, as vertical muscles in the abdomen that are tightened during surgery can separate again during pregnancy.

PLANNING YOUR SURGERY


tummy tuck You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. This will include information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments you have received, pregnancies, previous surgeries and medications. Dr. Saieh will evaluate your health, determine the extent of fat deposits in your abdominal region, and carefully assess your skin tone.

Be sure to tell Dr. Saieh if you smoke, and if you are taking any medications, vitamins, or other drugs. You can help lessen certain risks by following the advice and instructions of Dr. Saieh, both before and after surgery. Please stop, at least two weeks before surgery, all prescription and non-prescription herbal-like vitamins, diet pills, energizers, stimulants and appetite suppressants either bought in the USA or a foreign country, i.e. Mexico, etc. Bring them to the office and tell Dr. Saieh about them.

Do not take Aspirin or Ibuprofen or any other related anti-inflammatory products for a period of three (3) weeks prior to surgery and four (4) weeks after surgery, because they can cause increased bleeding. To take Tylenol (Acetaminophen) is okay. If you are a smoker, you will be asked to stop smoking well in advance of surgery.

HOW THE SURGERY MAY BE PERFORMED


If your fat deposits and loose skin are limited to the area below the navel, you may require a less complex procedure called a partial abdominoplasty, also known as a mini-tummy tuck, which can often be performed on an outpatient basis. You may, on the other hand, benefit more from a partial or complete abdominoplasty, done in conjunction with the liposuction, to remove the fat deposits from the love handles and/or hips for a better body contour. In some cases, liposuction alone may give you the results you are looking for, depending on your skin tone.

Generally, a horizontal incision is placed just within or above the pubic area. The length of the incision, which extends laterally toward the pelvic bones, depends largely on the amount of skin to be removed. The contour of this incision will vary somewhat according to the structure of your abdomen and the style of bathing suit or undergarments that you prefer. Dr. Saieh will try to keep the incision within your bathing suit lines, but this may not always be possible. Some patients have loose skin above the navel. In such cases, Dr. Saieh may make a second incision around the navel so that the redundant skin above it can be pulled down. The excess abdominal skin is then removed. The position of the navel remains unchanged. Part of the skin of the lower abdomen that contains stretch marks may be removed as well. Any remaining stretch marks may be somewhat flattened and improved, but you should not expect a dramatic change in their appearance.

The procedure may include tightening of the underlying abdominal muscles using sutures. Endoscopic abdominoplasty is another technique for minimizing scars and may be useful when patients have only a mild or moderate degree of excess fat and skin and muscle laxity. Dr. Saieh will discuss with you the particular method that he recommends for achieving the best result in your particular case.


LOCATION FOR THE SURGERY


The surgeries are done as outpatient surgery which means the patient is in and out of the hospital on the same day. Also, there are cases in which the patient would rather spend one night at the hospital for their own comfort.
