Abdomen miniabdominoplasty is a plastic surgery for eliminating fatness in the lower of of abdomen, removing sagging skin, eliminating stretch marks and other aesthetic defects. Often it is resorted to after pregnancy or a sudden weight loss, but on the condition of a slight sagging of the skin. In this case, the navel is not transferred, as in a standard abdominoplasty, and the sutures are located lower and are smaller in size. That is, miniabdominoplasty is a simplified version of traditional tummy tuck, so it requires less time for recovery and rehabilitation. But in any case, it requires the skill and high level of professionalism of the surgeon, strict adherence to the protocol during surgeries and following recommendations during the recovery period.

How is Abdomen Miniabdominoplasty Performed?

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. One of following three methods is used:

  1. umbilical, in which two small incisions are made near the navel. Through these incisions, excess subcutaneous fat is removed, sagging skin is excised, after which a purse-string suture is formed – as it heals, it becomes invisible;
  2. with an incision along the bikini line, recommended in case of sagging of the skin. The tissues are mobilized up to the navel and the lower peritoneum is sutured, excess fat and skin tissue is excised. If necessary, the muscular corset is strengthened. Then a cosmetic suture is performed using self-absorbable surgical materials;
  3. with de-epidermization of the skin, suitable for only minimal aesthetic defects.

The size of the incisions and, accordingly, the sutures depends on the individual characteristics of the body and the extent of aesthetic defects, but does not exceed 1 to 15 cm.

Miniabdominoplasty may be performed along with liposuction. Separately, tummy tuck takes 1 to 2 hours, along with liposuction it takes a little longer.

Rehabilitation and Features of Postoperative Care

This is a simple, minimally invasive surgery, so the recovery period after it is short and not associated with much discomfort. The first day will need to be spent in the hospital of the clinic, for medical supervision and the exclusion of postoperative complications. There may be small bruises on the skin, swelling, but they disappear during the first week. It will be necessary to wear compression underwear, stick to a simple diet (no sweet, fatty, spicy, smoked food), avoid the pool, sauna and bath. It usually takes several weeks to fully recover. The result of miniabdominoplasty, if all the doctor’s recommendations are followed, is preserved for the rest of one’s life.
