In today’s modern era, most people, especially women, are beauty conscious and want to look beautiful, attractive, and perfect in every possible way. Therefore for such beauty-conscious women, cosmetic plastic surgeries have been invented in which Lipoabdominoplasty is one of the most common surgical procedures. This surgical procedure is related to the flattening of the tummy by removing unwanted and extra fat in the abdominal area.
In this article, we are going to discuss all the relevant information regarding this surgical procedure. So to get yourself familiar with this treatment, you need to proceed reading further.
What is Lipoabdominoplasty?
Lipoabdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that merges two surgical procedures, Liposuction, and Tummy tuck. Liposuction removes the excess amount of fat from specific areas, but the skin does not tighten in this process. Besides that, the tummy tuck flattens the abdominal area to make it look more firm and resistant.
This surgery is specifically for the tummies of those women who have given childbirth because, after that the muscles of the abdomen become weak and turn into a fat hanging belly. So to get rid of such an unattractive tummy, this cosmetic surgery is the best treatment. It is also for those people who have a fat belly and extra fat in their abdominal area. Such people should opt for this combinational surgery because it not only removes the excess amount of fat present in the abdomen but also makes the waistline look small and smart.
Lipoabdominoplasty is the modern technique of bringing a significant change to the shape of the body. It is a combo of tummy tuck that involves the removal of loose hanging skin of the belly and tightens the baggy six-pack muscles and Liposuction, which includes the removal of excess fat from particular areas. The combo of these two procedures enhances the body structure and makes it look slim and smart.
The first step of this combinational surgery begins with the Liposuction part. In Liposuction, there are two main steps involved. Firstly, the fat present under the skin is filled with a solution known as tumescent fluid. In the second step, with the help of the suction process, fat cells are removed. At some hospitals, surgeons also add a third step to the liposuction part. This step lies between the first two steps mentioned above. In this optional step, fat and skin are treated with ultrasound energy. This energy breaks the fat into smaller pieces so that it can be removed more quickly and evenly. With the help of this ultrasound energy, skin also tightens as the result of which volume of fat decreases, and then the person will have a new and better figure.
Once the liposuction procedure is finished, the tummy tuck process, or in other words, we can say abdominoplasty is performed. In abdominoplasty, two incisions are involved. One cut at the lower abdomen and one cut near the belly button. The skin is then taken off of the abdominal muscles and stretched downwards. The excess amount of skin is removed, and another cut is made in the abdominal skin for the new site of the belly button. The rectus muscles that are present at the midline of the abdomen are brought closer together with the stitches. This part reduces the size of the waistline and makes it look more firm and flat. After removing the extra fat from the lower abdomen, the two edges of the skin are then stitched together again. At last, after 1 to 2 weeks of surgery, the stitches present on the skin around the belly button are then removed by the doctor.
It will take approximately 1-2 weeks to recover after Lipoabdominoplasty. To continue your daily routine activities, you have to wait for about 15 days. Before that, you can start light activities such as walking. But if you want to start any moderate activity like jogging, then you have to wait for about four weeks after treatment and, for the heavy activities, you have to wait for about six weeks. The results of this surgical procedure are instant, but for final results, you have to wait for a few months until all the swelling has completely gone.
Nowadays, every major surgery is expensive. Therefore, this cosmetic surgery is also high-priced and non-affordable for a poor person. According to some surgeons, the cost of this surgery lies between $5,950 to $9,950 means that if we convert it in PKR, then the price lies approximately between 9 lac 60 thousand to 17 lac. Some surgeons also say that the cost may depend on the area of Liposuction and patient risk.
