Info

Abdominoplasty Mexico

Procedure:
The excess skin and fat are removed surgically from the abdominal area. Depending on the patient´s needs, the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened. The incision is a half moon shape (the length depends on the mass of skin and fat to be removed), and is usually made directly under the overhanging skin.

Duration:
Approximately two hours.

Anesthesia:
The procedure is most commonly performed with a regional nerve block using a local anesthetic. This procedure can also do under general anesthesia.

Inpatient/Outpatient:
Either is possible and depends on the patient’s health.

Possible Side Effects:
Temporary discomfort, post-operative swelling, soreness or tenderness in the surrounding areas, numbness of the abdominal skin and bruising are possible side effects.

Risks:
Infection, bleeding under the skin flaps or at the incision site, pulmonary embolism (a blood clot that travels to the lung), scarring (keloids), delayed healing, or the need for a second reversionary operation are the potential risks.

Recovery:
The patient may return to work within two to four weeks. Upon a re-evaluation by the physician, the patient – may return to more strenuous activity after approximately four to six weeks. Scars should fade and flatten anywhere from three months to one year after surgery
