Achieve the abdomen you've always wanted with our customized abdominoplasty

One of the aesthetic surgery techniques that allows you to achieve a flatter belly and a better defined waist, is abdominoplasty. In the following guide we tell you all about this procedure.

What is abdominoplasty and what does it consist of?

Abdominoplasty is a type of abdominal wall surgery. In this circle procedure, excess skin and fat is removed from the middle and lower abdominal areas, while strengthening the muscles of the abdominal wall. It reduces the appearance of a bulging abdomen or “tummy”.

In this surgical procedure, an incision is made in the upper part of the pubic hair area and goes towards the hips. This cut removes excess skin from the abdomen and strengthens the abdominal muscles.

When to have an abdominoplasty?

This treatment is usually performed to eliminate the feeling of a bulging and flabby belly. In other words, the goal is to achieve a flat stomach and a slimmer waistline.

It can also be followed to alleviate rashes or skin infections that may arise under large flaps of skin.

Generally, the ideal candidate to undergo this type of body surgery is a woman or man with a relatively good figure but who is concerned about the accumulation of fat or excess skin in the abdominal area.

Above all, this concern increases when the situation does not improve in spite of following a diet or doing physical exercise.

It is also of interest to women who have suffered several pregnancies and find that the skin and muscles of the abdomen have not regained their initial tone.

Over the years, skin elasticity may be lost and may even be due to moderate obesity. But in patients who need to lose a lot of weight, it is important to postpone the surgery, as well as women who plan a future pregnancy tomorrow.

It can also be a contraindicated operation in the case of previous scars on the abdomen. Of course, the surgery is able to eliminate them.

Preparation for abdominoplasty

The preparation for undergoing abdominoplasty is very simple.

A few days before the operation, the patient may be advised to stop taking medications to avoid a possible formation of blood clots.

The surgeon will recommend taking specific medications the day of the operation. It may also be necessary to go fasting.


After the treatment, it is normal for the patient to feel some pain and discomfort. The doctor may prescribe painkillers.

The patient should also wear a type of girdle for 2 to 3 weeks. As well as avoiding sports or activities that may cause tension or stress for at least one or two months.

In a matter of 2 to 4 weeks you can return to work. After 2 months, in general, you can lead a normal life.

Is there a scar?

The scar that remains as a result of the intervention is permanent. Its extent depends on the severity of each case, depending on the extent of the intervention.


Does it cause pain?

In the first weeks it is usual to lose a little sensitivity in the region below the navel. In any case, it will recover as the weeks go by. It is unlikely that you will suffer pain in the wound. Even so, during the postoperative period you will take painkillers.

How to avoid this fat accumulation?

The accumulation of belly fat can be reduced by following a Mediterranean diet and trying to exercise regularly. Especially specific exercises that contribute to a flat stomach.

It is also important to avoid carbonated beverages or alcohol, as they tend to increase the feeling of bloating.

Of course, many patients who undergo this type of surgery follow these good practices and fail to avoid the accumulation of fat and excess skin in this area. That is why they undergo abdominoplasty.

Are there alternatives?

Una de las alternativas a la abdominoplastia es la liposucción. Estamos ante un procedimiento que no está específicamente indicado para tratar el abdomen o vientre plano, pero permite extraer grasa en determinadas zonas del cuerpo.
