What not to do before getting an abdominoplasty

What not to do before getting an abdominoplasty

 

Abdominoplasty is the procedure recommended for patients with a surplus of skin on the inferior tummy caused by multiple pregnancies, weight fluctuations, or other factors. The procedure is performed with the use of a general anesthetic, and it requires hospitalization of no longer than a few hours and a recovery period of about ten to fourteen days, depending on the complexity of the procedure.

Abdominoplasty is safe and very sought after as it is the only effective method we have to correct the unsightly appearance of the tummy that can occur due to different causes. Abdominoplasty is a good solution for both men and women, it has few contraindications, and the most important thing is that the patients are eligible to undergo the procedure if they are in good emotional and health condition.

When considering abdominoplasty, you should know that there will be a preparation period before the procedure, and during this time you are advised to avoid doing certain things, such as:

–    Don’t smoke

Smoking can have serious negative consequences and affect the results and also unnecessarily prolong the healing process. The tissues need oxygenated blood to heal, and if you smoke, the oxygen in the blood is affected. This means that complications such as skin necrosis and delayed wound healing are more frequent to occur in patients who smoke than patients who do not smoke. The general recommendation is to avoid smoking for at least three weeks before and after the procedure to allow for a normal healing process.

–    Don’t take medication without the doctor’s consent

In any surgical procedure, there is a risk of excessive bleeding or the formation of blood clots. Certain medication can increase these risks. For example, birth control medication increases the risk of developing a blood clot and should be avoided a month before the procedure is scheduled. Also, certain anti-inflammatory medication containing aspirin can increase the risk of excessive bleeding considerably due to their blood thinning effect.

If you are under medication for a certain condition, make sure to discuss it with the plastic surgeon during the pre-operative consultation as the doses of the medication you take might need to be lowered or increased, or it might be necessary to stop taking the medication altogether for a period of time.

–    Don’t overeat

Abdominoplasty, just like liposuction, does not give you the license to eat whatever you want, whenever you want. The procedure only targets the abdominal muscles and the skin that is in excess on the tummy. The fat tissue on the tummy and the flanks can only be addressed with liposuction that is not a necessary part of the tummy tuck procedure. Keep a balanced and healthy eating regimen before abdominoplasty is performed to make sure you get good results after the procedure.
