Abdominoplasty is a surgical technique performed to give a firm and uniform abdominal contour. There are two different techniques, the simple abdominoplasty whose scar is horizontal and is hidden in the underwear and the abdominoplasty performed on people who have lost a lot of weight whose pattern is in a fleur-de-lis and which combines a vertical incision with a horizontal incision.
The simple abdominoplasty not only removes excess skin and fat but must also treat the abdominal wall. Most of the time when we perform an abdominoplasty, the people who suffer the alteration of the abdominal wall have had pregnancies or are of intermediate or advanced age, which causes the abdominal tissues, muscle and fascial tissues to give way and bulge the abdomen. If we only treat the skin, the result will be unsatisfactory, so when lifting the skin of the abdomen we must make two to four suture planes to close the abdomen properly and not only the anterior part is smooth and taut, but also the flank is also narrowed and produces a slender silhouette.
Finally, we must also consider the resection of the skin below the navel and the closure of the musculature in the midline, the performance of liposculpture by vibramatic, a technique assisted by a special device that provides greater safety and a more comfortable postoperative period with greater regularisation of the skin. This technique ensures that the skin is regularly adhered to the abdomen and that the muscles can be seen on the surface of the abdomen.
Lastly, it is important that the scar is hidden under the underwear, for which a good pattern in the resection areas is very important to achieve a good result. For the first few days, a bandage must be worn in the operating theatre, which is removed a week after the operation, followed by a compression garment that must be worn for at least one to two months after the surgery. The stitches are removed after two weeks, although most of them are reabsorbable and do not need to be removed.

Yes, abdominoplasty is one of the techniques that achieves the best results, it is a very grateful technique as when it is performed correctly it achieves a firm, flat abdomen with the muscle marked underneath the skin.
Age is not an important factor when deciding to have a tummy tuck. The main reason in young women is usually if they have had a significant bulging of the abdomen after pregnancy and in older people, both men and women, it may simply be for aesthetic reasons after a significant weight loss. It is perfectly possible in both cases.
Yes, it is possible to become pregnant without risk after a tummy tuck, although we always recommend performing it when the planning of pregnancies has finished and it is decided not to have any more children, as if a pregnancy occurs after a tummy tuck, the operation will probably be altered and a defect similar to the one that existed before the operation may be produced again as a result of the pregnancy.
It is not necessary to lose weight before an abdominoplasty, but we do recommend that the weight be stable. Just as we do not recommend pregnancy after the intervention because of the risk of spoiling the surgery, we do not recommend significant weight gain or loss either, as this will negatively affect the result of the surgery in the long term. It is not necessary to be at a certain weight before or after the operation, nor is it necessary to avoid becoming pregnant, but it is important to bear in mind that any significant body change will affect the results of the abdominoplasty.
It is very important to make a good pattern when painting the resection areas before the operation so that the scar is completely hidden under the underwear. A common mistake is to only tighten the skin from top to bottom and paint the skin tightening from top to bottom without taking into account that when we tighten the skin in this direction, the skin below the pubic area will rise and therefore the skin of the pubic area must also be pulled upwards to paint the lower resection edge and therefore the scar will be hidden under the edge of the underwear.
