Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that aims to reshape the abdominal area.
It is often used on people who have excess skin and sagging tissue in the abdominal area caused by weight loss, pregnancy or ageing processes.
The abdominoplasty procedure usually involves several steps. First, a thorough consultation and examination is performed by Dr Adžemović to understand the patient’s individual needs and goals. Then the procedure is performed under general anaesthesia.
During the operation, excess skin and fatty tissue are removed. Depending on the needs, a tightening of the abdominal muscles can also be performed to achieve a firmer and flatter appearance of the abdomen. Dr Adžemović takes care to place the scars as inconspicuously as possible, often along the edge of the bikini or in the fold of the lower abdomen.
The recovery period after abdominoplasty can take a few weeks. Swelling, bruising and mild discomfort may occur in the first few days after the procedure. The patient should take sufficient rest, avoid physical exertion and follow Dr Adžemović’s instructions for wound care and aftercare.
The benefits of abdominoplasty are many. They include improved body shape and contour of the abdomen, tightening of the skin and removal of excess tissue, especially after weight loss or pregnancy. Many people also experience an increase in self-confidence and satisfaction with their appearance after abdominoplasty.
Abdominoplasty is suitable for people who have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area due to weight loss, pregnancy or ageing.
The recovery time after abdominoplasty can vary depending on the individual case. However, it usually takes several weeks for the swelling to subside and full recovery to be achieved.
Abdominoplasty can provide long-term results, especially if the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle. However, weight gain or new pregnancy can affect the results. It is important to maintain a stable and healthy lifestyle to maintain the results.
After abdominoplasty, the results are partially visible, but due to swelling and the healing process, it may take several weeks to months before the final results are visible. The body needs time to recover and allow the swelling to subside.
