What is an abdominoplasty procedure?

This surgical intervention entails the removal of surplus skin and fat from the abdominal region, coupled with the tightening of the abdominal wall.

The outcome typically yields a flatter stomach and a more defined waistline. It’s imperative to acknowledge that Abdominoplasty, whether full or partial, constitutes a major surgical undertaking, resulting in a permanent scar. Hence, it necessitates careful consideration before proceeding.

THE PROCEDURE

Are you considering an abdominoplasty for a flatter, toned abdomen? Discover what awaits you on your abdominoplasty journey with Dr. Sofiane Rimouche:

Initial Consultation: Your journey begins with a detailed consultation with Dr. Sof. He’ll attentively listen to your concerns, assess your abdominal structure, and discuss your aesthetic objectives. Through a comprehensive examination, Dr. Sof determines if an abdominoplasty aligns with your goals.

Preparation: On the procedure day, you’ll arrive at the surgical facility primed for your surgery. Dr. Sof and his team prioritise your comfort, ensuring you’re at ease before administering anaesthesia.

Surgical Approach: Dr. Sof employs advanced techniques to remove excess skin and fat, tighten abdominal muscles, and enhance contouring. Abdominoplasty targets both upper and lower abdomen for comprehensive results.

Incision Placement: Dr. Sof will carefully create a horizontal incision above the pubic area, strategically positioned within the bikini line’s natural contours for discreet concealment. Through this incision, he adeptly removes excess skin and fat and may tighten underlying muscles to refine abdominal contours.

Closing Incisions and Recovery: Post-procedure, Dr. Sof closes the incisions with sutures and applies appropriate dressings. You’ll receive attentive monitoring in the recovery area before discharge, along with detailed post-operative instructions. Dr. Sof schedules follow-up appointments to oversee your progress, address any concerns, and facilitate a seamless recovery journey.

Results: Throughout your recovery from the abdominoplasty, you’ll notice a gradual transformation in your lower abdomen—marked by increased firmness, flattening, and enhanced tone. Dr. Sof’s surgery aims to give results that harmonise with your body’s natural contours, fostering a balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

AT A GLANCE

Important Note from Dr. Sof: While you may observe initial improvements, the full results of your abdominoplasty surgery may take a few months as swelling gradually subsides.

Guidance on Return to Activities: Your personalised plan for gradually resuming daily activities will be carefully determined in collaboration with Dr. Sof, ensuring a smooth transition back to your regular routine.

FAQS

Abdominoplasty is best suited for individuals who have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise. However, factors such as overall health, medical history, and lifestyle habits are important considerations. Dr. Sof will assess your candidacy during a thorough consultation.

The recovery process varies for each patient but typically involves some discomfort, swelling, and bruising for the first few weeks. Patients are advised to take it easy and avoid strenuous activities during this time. Dr. Sof will provide detailed post-operative instructions to support your recovery.

While abdominoplasty incisions are strategically placed to minimise visibility, scarring is inevitable. However, Dr. Sof uses advanced techniques to ensure scars are as discreet as possible. Over time, scars tend to fade and become less noticeable.

Abdominoplasty results can be long-lasting, especially with a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and a balanced diet. However, factors such as aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can affect the outcome over time. Maintaining a stable weight and healthy habits can help prolong results.

While abdominoplasty can remove excess skin and fat, it may not effectively address stretch marks. However, stretch marks located on the lower abdomen may be partially removed along with the excess skin during the procedure. Dr. Sof will discuss realistic expectations during your consultation.

Depending on your specific concerns and goals, Dr. Sof may recommend alternative treatments such as a mini abdominoplasty, liposuction or non-surgical body contouring procedures. These options can be discussed during your consultation to determine the most suitable approach for you
