Abdominoplasty - lipectomy

This surgery can treat all the changes that take place in the abdomen due to weight gain or pregnancy. The excess skin can be removed to obtain a tight abdomen.


The muscles are tied together for a firm abdomen. Removing the excess skin can remove stretch marks from the lower and middle abdomen.


Procedure

This surgery is performed under general anesthesia. It lasts an average of 2 hours and is usually performed with liposuction of other areas to optimize the result.


I advise all my patients to take at least 10 days off, and if they come from outside Bogota, to remain a minimum of 15 days in the city before the return trip. Post-surgery requires massages and the use of a special girdle to control inflammation. The resulting scar is in an area that is easy to conceal and is usually of very good quality


Frequently Asked Questions

1¿How long is the recommended rest time?
I recommend to my patients a minimum of 7 days of rest on average
2¿How do I know if I am a candidate for a liposuction or a lipectomy?
If there is excess skin and the muscles of the abdomen are separated, a lipectomy should be done. If the skin is not excess and the muscles are in good position, the best alternative is a liposuction. In many cases the two procedures are done.
3¿What care should be taken after abdominoplasty?
It is important to use a strip with special foams and to avoid the exaggerated pressure. A massage protocol must be followed to accelerate deflation and improve skin quality.
4¿What is the difference between a liposuction and a lipectomy?
Removes excess skin and improves the position of the muscles of the abdominal wall.
