Abdominal Wall Surgery

July 14th, 2017

Abdominal Wall SurgeryIf a doctor finds defects in a patient’s abdominal wall, there may be a need for it to be reconstructed. There are a variety of abdominal wall surgeries that can be done, but it is mostly dependent on the patient’s particular defect. The aim of abdominal wall surgery aim is to ensure that they rectify the structure and functionality of the abdominal wall.

One of the common abdominal wall defects that require surgical intervention is the separation of the rectus abdominis muscles. This condition is quite common amongst pregnant women. It occurs as a result of the baby’s growth in the womb, and the rectus abdominis separates in order to accommodate a large fetus. Although it is not considered as a medical condition, it can still cause back pain and abdominal pain.

The separation of the rectus abdominis muscle is called diastasis recti, and not all women who experience this undergo surgery. Women who desire a flatter stomach may opt to rectify it through surgery where the muscles are tightened together, returning it to a flatter and stronger abdomen. This procedure can be done in conjunction with a tummy tuck procedure. Through this, excess fat and skin are removed while the muscles are simultaneously repaired. This creates the appearance of a flat stomach.

Other patients who need an abdominal wall surgery may not have diastasis recti but might have a hernia instead. A hernia is a protrusion caused by an internal organ pressed against the abdominal wall. The bulge can be flattened while in a supine position or when pressure is given towards it. The hernia doesn’t go away on its own and can worsen over time.

In order to treat the hernia, it must first diagnosed and evaluated by medical professionals. Certain tests such as CT scans can help identify the location and presence of a hernia. An abdominal wall procedure can treat the hernia. For some, one surgery would be enough to treat it, but there are others whose hernia returns after some time has elapsed. If the hernia is surgically treated multiple times and it still persists, it will then be classified as a complex type of hernia. It is best to find an experienced and professional surgeon to perform the repair to maximize the chances of a successful procedure.

No matter the abdominal wall defect, the abdominal wall surgery can help repair it. Before the surgical procedure, patients are assessed to ensure that they are healthy enough for the surgery. After the surgery, patients need to make sure that they treat their body well and provide it with nutrients to help aid in their recovery. The abdominal wall repair can be used to treat medical conditions like hernia or more cosmetic conditions such as diastasis recti. Either way, this procedure can improve the patient’s self-esteem regarding their body.

Body contouring after weight loss

July 7th, 2017

Body contouring after weight lossPlastic surgery is not a solution for overweight people but it can significantly help lose excess weight. There are different weight loss programs that one can choose in order to achieve a healthier body. All of these programs advocate proper diet and regular exercise in order to shed body fat.

However, flabby excess skin can be an unwanted side effect of extreme weight loss. Through the help of body contouring, you can achieve a better-looking figure after the weight loss program.

The results from a body contouring procedure may vary as people lose weight differently. The surgery is specifically tailored according to the patient’s needs, which is why a proper consultation with your surgeon is important in order to determine the best procedures to achieve the best results for your body.

Body contouring can be a combination of different procedures: tummy tuck, thigh lift, liposuction, breast lift, upper arm lift, breast augmentation, breast reduction, excess skin removal, and facial contouring. Surgeons will determine which procedures can be safely combined for you. As with any major operation, recovery will take a considerable amount of time. Patients will be provided instructions on postoperative care so that recovery will be as smooth and quick as possible.

Patients may heal differently, but it is important to let your surgeon know if you feel different or strange. The patient must be aware of possible complications so they can notify their doctors and prevent life-threatening scenarios.

Like any other surgical procedure, body contouring also results in scars. These scars are due to the incisions made to remove all the excess skin and fat in the body. The scars will eventually heal and lighten over time. There are also different products available to minimize scarring.

Once patients start to heal, they will begin to see the results of all their hard work during the weight loss program. They will be able to see a better silhouette from all the excess skin and stubborn fat that has been removed through surgery. This will provide a confidence boost so that patients can learn to love and appreciate their body more.

How to get rid of the post baby tummy

May 26th, 2017

How to get rid of the post-baby tummyWhen a woman gets pregnant, changes in the body occur. The belly stretches to accommodate the growing baby, but the stomach does not immediately return to its normal state after giving birth. In most cases, women develop a small pouch on their belly after pregnancy. This is because diastasis recti, or the separation of abdominal muscles, is a common occurrence after pregnancy. When this happens, the tummy can look big as though the woman is still pregnant, even when they return to their pre-pregnancy weight. Exercise and proper diet will help in losing the belly, though some women resort to surgery in order to remedy this.

A tummy tuck is a popular procedure performed on women after pregnancy. It is a major surgery that deals with removing excess skin and fat in the tummy area. For patients who have split abdominal muscles, suturing can also be done alongside a tummy tuck.

The procedure involves making a horizontal cut spanning from one hip to the other. Excess skin and fat will be removed and a new belly button can be made to ensure it is in the right position. The fat can also be removed through liposuction to prevent the occurrence of a “muffin top” when the patient wears jeans. The skin is tightened and during the recovery, patients are required to be in certain positions such as bending over until the skin loosens up.

As recovery can take time, patients must move around to prevent blood clots from forming. Swelling may also occur, but a drain can be placed to remove any accumulated fluid. Recovery can be especially tough for moms who have children to take care of, so having assistance while recuperating is recommended.

The tummy tuck is an effective procedure to lose one’s belly, though it cannot return the stomach to its original state prior to pregnancy. Make sure to consult with your surgeon to know the risks and complications of getting a tummy tuck, as well as set realistic expectations, in order to ensure your safety and satisfaction.

Is working out necessary after liposuction

April 29th, 2017

Is working out necessary after liposuction?Liposuction is a great procedure that removes excess fat in certain areas of the body in order to get a better shape. It is one of the surgical solutions that helps remove love handles or muffin tops that have developed over time. However, patients must understand that they cannot return to the same eating and exercising routines after undergoing a liposuction procedure.

The body has different types of fat. In particular, the fat that is removed during liposuction is called the subcutaneous fat. Fat that is found around internal organs is called visceral fat, which is not removed during the procedure. This means that even if a patient undergoes liposuction, they cannot be exempt from health problems or diseases that may develop. This is why healthy eating with proper exercise is advised to help control the visceral fat in the body, lessening the risk of hypertension, diabetes, and other diseases.

It is important to understand that liposuction is not a weight loss solution. It is simply to change the shape and contour of the body by removing fat in certain areas. Removing excess fat from the body will not prevent new fat from developing. This is why proper diet and exercise is crucial to maintain one’s figure after a liposuction procedure.

Naturally, patients need proper recovery and rest before resuming exercise. Once the body has healed, the patient can begin with simple exercises before gradually moving on to more challenging routines. Combined with healthy eating, your body will be in its best shape possible.

Preventing infection after a tummy tuck

April 21st, 2017

Preventing infection after a tummy tuckA tummy tuck surgery is a procedure that helps remove the excess skin and fat in the stomach. It is a procedure that can help patients further appreciate the type of body they have achieved through proper diet and exercise. Like any medical procedure, there are risks involved in a tummy tuck surgery. One of the possible complications is infection.

An infection can be caused by different bacteria that can enter the body. While there are natural bacteria inside the body, external bacteria can enter from the openings or incisions created during surgery. An infection should be treated with antibiotics as soon as possible, otherwise it can lead to death.

Many surgeons will prescribe pre-operative antibiotics, wherein patients would be required to take antibiotics prior to surgery to help prepare the body against any bacterial contamination that may occur. As there are a number of different antibiotics available, doctors must ensure that the patient is not allergic to these medications to avoid complications.

An infection can occur on the suture site of the tummy tuck surgery. Usual symptoms indicating an infection include abscess, fever, pain, or redness on the incision site. Even if the patient is already taking antibiotics, surgeons must assess the abscess to determine if additional medication needs to be prescribed or further procedures need to be done.

Infection brought about by bacteria such as the Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) is a more dangerous kind of infection that can occur in patients who have undergone surgery. These types of bacteria are resistant to first generation antibiotics, requiring stronger medication in order to be treated. Patients who have a history of MRSA infection are given this medication during surgery in order to prevent the infection from recurring.

Infection after a tummy tuck surgery can also occur as a result of using non-sterile tools during surgery. Certified, experienced surgeons strictly work in a germ-free environment, and only unprofessional ones (such as those that offer their services at a cheap price) would do so otherwise. It is best to be careful in selecting the right surgeon in order to ensure your own safety.
