A career-oriented female’s most dreaded fear about getting pregnant is the inability to get back into their pre-pregnancy figure post-delivery.
With the development of science and master sculpting by plastic surgeons, these females now feel a ray of hope to get timely pregnant and slip back into their previous shape through the magic of liposuction and abdominoplasty.
This procedure is usually done to trim out the extra skin and fat in the abdomen with tightening of fascia and muscles. This results in flattening of the tummy and removes that extra bulge protruding through the tummy.
If the previous delivery was through the lower segment caesarean section, abdominoplasty can be done through the same incision. Normally incision extends from one pubic bone to another pubic bone through the bikini line. Also, there is another incision around the navel, and the navel is usually repositioned.
Surgery is done under general anaesthesia (so you need to be fasting on the day of surgery) and 1-night admission is required in the hospital.
Though complications are minimal in the hands of an expert, there are some documented ones. These include – infection at the surgical site, bruising, swelling, hematoma, seroma, scarring, or rarely embolic complications. Obviously, the surgeon and the sterility of the operation theatre both play an important role in preventing these. This is the reason probably why no two clinics demand the same money for the procedure and one should choose the best instead of opting out for lucrative discounts.
Early ambulation, if possible on the same day, is promoted. Mild symptoms like bruising and swelling subside over a few weeks. Mild activity is started within a week, whereas heavy activities should be started after 12 weeks when complete wound healing takes place.
