1. Personalized Consultation:
Your journey to a firmer and more sculpted abdomen begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Gautham. During this initial meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your goals, concerns, and expectations. Dr. Gautham will assess the extent of your abdominal concerns and overall health to develop a customized surgical plan that is tailored to your specific needs.
2. Anesthesia Options:
Abdominoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Gautham will discuss the anesthesia options with you during the consultation, ensuring your comfort and safety during the procedure.
The procedure involves creating incisions in the lower abdominal area. Dr. Gautham places these incisions strategically, ensuring that resulting scars will be discreet and easily concealed.
4. Tissue Removal and Muscle Repair:
Excess fat and skin are meticulously removed from the abdominal area. Additionally, if needed, weakened or separated abdominal muscles are repaired to create a more defined midsection.
5. Skin Tightening and Contouring:
The remaining skin is stretched and tightened to create a firm and toned appearance. Dr. Gautham is dedicated to achieving a natural and harmonious result.
6. Closing Incisions:
The incisions are carefully closed, and over time, the resulting scars will fade and become barely noticeable.
7. Recovery and Results:
Following the procedure, patients may experience some swelling and bruising, which is a normal part of the recovery process. Dr. Gautham will provide detailed post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth and comfortable healing period. Over time, as the swelling subsides, you will witness the transformation of your abdominal area into a flatter and more sculpted appearance.
