Gold Coast Plastic Surgeon Abdominoplasty
An abdominoplasty, is designed to give patients a flatter and smoother abdomen. The surgery removes surplus skin on patient’s stomachs and tightens and corrects the muscle sheath defects of the stomach wall, whilst smoothing the contour of the abdomen area. The operation is performed to correct the muscle weakness and loose skin that can occur following pregnancies, significant weight loss or other abdominal surgery.
It is important to note that abdominoplasty is not a substitute for having a healthy diet and exercise. It
is not considered a weight loss procedure. Being at your goal weight and within a healthy BMI is crucial
for this procedure.
How long the results of abdominoplasty will last will vary from patient to patient. It is recommended
that you have a healthy diet, as well as remain active to prevent weight gain that can damage results.
Those who follow a healthy lifestyle are more likely to prolong the achievements of abdominoplasty.
