What factors should be considered after abdominoplasty surgery?
After the abdominoplasty surgery, the patient comes to the hospital room dressed in a compression garment. We recommend this compression garment is used for three weeks. Light walks can commence immediately after surgery but it is wise to wait one and a half months before undertaking heavy exercise or returning to the gym or working out. You should refrain from lifting anything heavy for 4-6 weeks following the surgery as well.
At Cadogan Clinic we offer a specialized Brazilian Abdominoplasty, which restores the shape and skin of the abdomen area. This procedure is offered for anyone who wishes to remove excess skin on your tummy that is more difficult to lose through traditional weight loss or exercise.
By combining the optimal choice of treatment with my skills and surgical vision, I am able to create the natural ‘invisible’ finish for my patients. I believe in exceptional one to one care and in taking the journey together from the start to finish.
What scars can I expect from abdominoplasty surgery?
During the abdominoplasty surgery an incision needs to be made across the hip bone along with below the belly button, these incisions lead to a small amount of scarring within these areas which gradually becomes less noticeable and will fade over time.
