Understanding Full Abdominoplasty

Dr. Kornstein Plastic Surgery Center provides complete abdominoplasty to ensure a comprehensive approach to redefine and rejuvenate your abdominal profile. Unlike its counterpart, the mini-abdominoplasty, this procedure addresses a broader spectrum of concerns, encompassing the upper and lower abdominal regions.

Benefits of Full Abdominoplasty

The benefits of a full abdominoplasty extend beyond cosmetic enhancements. Through this procedure, we remove excess skin and tighten muscles, giving your midsection a more toned look and feel. This is a holistic approach to achieving your desired figure.

The Full Abdominoplasty Procedure

Curious about the intricacies of the full abdominoplasty procedure? Allow our surgical team to guide you through each step.

From meticulous preoperative preparation to the precise execution of surgical techniques, we ensure a seamless process. Immerse yourself in the details of the tummy tuck process, where cosmetic surgery becomes a symphony of skill and precision.

Ideal Candidates for Full Abdominoplasty

Our surgical team evaluates patient suitability, ensuring realistic expectations align with achievable outcomes.

The ideal candidates for abdominoplasty are:

  • Physically healthy with a stable weight
  • Nonsmokers
  • Bothered by the appearance of their abdomen
  • Have loose skin around the abdomen
  • No future pregnancy plans
  • No plans to gain or lose weight

Recovery and Aftercare

We provide a recovery timeline and aftercare instructions. It will help guide the patient to achieve safe and optimal results.

Timeline of Recovery:

  • The first two days are the most uncomfortable, if not painful, days post-operation. The pain level gradually drops to a "nagging discomfort" within five to seven days.
  • Rest is essential during the initial days, with strict avoidance of aspirin or certain anti-inflammatory medications.
  • Walking is encouraged the day after surgery to discourage swelling and prevent blood clots.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for four to six weeks.
  • Follow-up visits within five days may involve drain removal. Swelling should decrease within five weeks.

Aftercare Instructions:

  • We recommend strict adherence to prescribed pain medications and their schedules.
  • Assistance at home is vital; do not engage in heavy lifting for four to six weeks.
  • Drain care, bandage changes, and showering guidelines will be provided by your surgeon.
  • Wear the prescribed wide elastic compression garment for several weeks to reduce swelling and provide skin support.
  • No smoking after the procedure to prevent complications.
  • Abstain from alcohol for five days post-surgery or while taking pain medication.
  • Arrange for someone to assist with mobility and medication for at least the first three days.
