A Partial Abdominoplasty Will Tighten That Tummy

Published on April 28, 2017 by

Stubborn belly fat may seem almost impossible to get rid of after years of living with it and while trying every method possible to get rid of it without much success. For many people, reducing excess fat can be a difficult thing to accomplish. Even with a strict diet and a rigorous fitness routine, removing excess fat deposits can be a challenge.

When all else fails, a great deal of people opt to undergo a plastic surgery procedure known as an abdominoplasty. For those who have a need to get rid of a small amount of excess fat, a partial abdominoplasty is exactly what you need. This is a perfect option for smaller scale procedures where a patient has excess fat deposits, but not too much.

Who Can Get a Partial Abdominoplasty?

Before undergoing a partial abdominoplasty, there are a few things that you will need to take into consideration to determine if you will make a good candidate. You should be a healthy individual who doesn’t have any serious health conditions. You should also possess a body weight within your ideal range and be able to hold a consistent weight.

Unlike a full abdominoplasty, the partial procedure is used to remove a small amount of excess fat and is better suited for those who have a small amount fatty deposits. It is a perfect solution for those who are already in good physical shape, but want to improve their look by adding more definition in the abdominal area.

What to Expect from a Partial Abdominoplasty Surgery?

Your journey to a more toned abdominal region will begin with a consultation. During the consultation, your surgeon will evaluate your body to determine if you are medically fit to undergo the treatment. The evaluation is conducted because, like any other surgery, not being in good health may cause complications to arise.

You may also be given a set of instructions to help you prepare for the procedure. These instructions may require you to stop taking certain medications and to stop smoking if you do. If you’re not within your ideal weight range, your surgeon may advise you to postpone the procedure to a later date while you work toward achieving your goal weight.

Once your surgeon determines that you are a worthy candidate, you can begin the process to more toned abs. Your surgeon will begin the procedure by making a small incision just above the bikini line. Through this incision, your plastic surgeon will remove lose skin and excess fat from the lower abdominal area. The incision will then be stitched back together.

The partial abdominoplasty is less intensive than a full abdominoplasty and takes less time to perform. Due to its less intensive nature, the recovery times are also less.
