Abdominoplasty in Kharkiv

Abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery, the purpose of which is to sculpt the body in the abdomen area. Depending on the volume of surgical intervention, there are:

  • complete abdominoplasty;
  • mini-abdominoplasty.

With the help of abdominoplasty, you can tighten the abdomen and highlight the waist area, as well as remove fat deposits and loose skin on the abdomen.

Complete abdominoplasty

Complete abdominoplasty is a reparative abdominal surgery to remove fat from the abdomen and reshape the waist. Complete abdominoplasty also includes the elimination of separation of the abdominal muscles (diastasis).


Mini-abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery on the abdomen, which differs from a complete abdominoplasty in a smaller amount of surgical intervention. During a mini-abdominoplasty, the surgeon can tighten the skin on the abdomen and remove fat deposits locally.

Indications for abdominoplasty

The main indication for abdominoplasty is the desire to improve the appearance of the abdominal area, remove a sagging belly, remove excess skin and belly fat, and correct diastasis. Abdomen plasty can help to restore the body shape after childbirth for those women whose abdominal distension during pregnancy has led to skin laxity and sagging. Women prone to sudden changes in weight and suffering from hormonal disorders can also face the problem of a sagging abdomen.

The decision regarding complete or mini-abdominoplasty is always made by a woman together with a surgeon, depending on the desired result, indications for the intervention and the woman's health.

Preparation and procedure of abdominoplasty

Preparation for abdominoplasty begins with a consultation by a plastic surgeon. The doctor listens to the woman’s wishes, conducts examination, and refers to the necessary preoperative examinations (tests and instrumental methods of examination). If there are no contraindications to the intervention, the surgeon appoints the time and date for abdominoplasty.

Abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and lasts 3-5 hours. In order to make the scars after abdominoplasty invisible, the surgeon makes an incision in the lower abdomen along the hairline and, after the intervention, sutures the surgical wound with special stitches.

The rehabilitation duration after abdominoplasty depends on the scope of operation. The recovery period after complete abdominoplasty is 8 weeks, while the recovery period after a mini-abdominoplasty does not exceed four weeks. At this time, you must adhere to several rules:

  • wear special compression underwear;
  • sleep only on your back;
  • restrict physical activity temporarily.

The advantages of abdominoplasty are to achieve the desired appearance of the abdomen and waist in a short time, without exhausting training and dieting. Nevertheless, the result of abdominal correction will depend on adherence to the rules of a healthy diet, a regimen of moderate physical activity and doctor's recommendations.
