Results of Your Abdominoplasty Surgery
Abdominoplasty will enhance your body contour by making your abdomen firmer and flatter. You may find that you feel more comfortable in your clothing and are more confident about your appearance.
The incisions from the
procedure will heal and fade over time. It is important to realize, however,
that the incision lines will be permanently visible. In some instances, they
will eventually be only faint lines. Certain individuals may have incision lines
that are more noticeable. Fortunately, the incisions for your abdominoplasty are
usually in locations concealed by most bathing suits and undergarments.
Unless you gain or lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant, your abdomen should remain firmer and flatter for many years. However, gravity and the effects of aging will eventually take their toll. If, after a period of years, you again become dissatisfied with the appearance of your abdomen, you may choose to undergo a second procedure to restore a more youthful body contour.
Post Surgical Care
It is important to realize that the result of your abdominoplasty surgery can change with age, but the use of certain clinical skin care products can help maintain the youthful appearance of your skin. Dr. Speron recommends neaclearplus Liquid Oxygen Anti-Aging Body Lotion and Rejuvenating Body Scrub. To reduce the appearance of post surgical scars, he also recommends neaclearplus Liquid Oxygen Scar Advantage.
Maintaining a Relationship with Your Plastic Surgeon
You will return to your plastic surgeon's office for follow-up care at prescribed intervals, at which time your progress will be evaluated. Your surgeon will encourage you to schedule routine follow-up evaluations at the frequency recommended for your age group and the procedure performed.
Please remember that the relationship with your plastic surgeon does not end when you leave the operating room. If you have questions or concerns during your recovery, or need additional information at a later time, you should contact your surgeon.
