Classical abdominoplasty is performed to strengthen and connect the muscles and muscular aponeurosis, remove excessive subcutaneous fat in the anterolateral abdominal wall area and also to tighten the skin by removing the excessive skin. The operation provides the restoration of the abdominal muscle sling properties, allows to form a waist and reconstruct the contours of the body. If desired by the patient, the navel also is shifted.
Endoscopic abdominoplasty is performed in young women who have weakened muscles of the press and who do not need skin tightening. The procedure involves the insertion of an endoscope in the navel area and also a few punctures are made in the bikini area.
Mini-abdominoplasty is indicated when a small aesthetic correction with removal of small volume of excessive skin and folds is required. The operation is performed via the incision in the bikini area while the navel is not shifted.
Apronectomy is performed to remove the excessive skin and fat and tighten the muscles of the press. For this, an additional vertical incision is made.
Abdominal Tarsorrhaphy is a quite vast surgical correction during which the fat depositions are removed not only in the abdomen area but also in the back and hips areas. The scars and stretch marks are also removed.
After the operation, the following complications may occur: bleeding, purulency, formation of non-aesthetic scars and subcutaneous seromas; destruction of part of the adipodermal flap due to insufficient skin nutrition or inflammatory process; a persistent decrease or lack of sensitivity in the area of surgical intervention; formation of the foci of non-aesthetic scars that deform the abdomen.
However, the ten-year experience of the GRACE Centre doctors who use the high-quality technologies and medications and pay increased attention to safety minimise the likelihood of the above-mentioned risks at GRACE.
