Thankfully, there is a surgery, called abdominoplasty, which allows the elimination excess skin and fat. The result is a more vigorous abdomen, which has regained its former tonicity, giving the entire body a more harmonious, robust and virile appearance.
I perform the surgery, which requires hospitalization for one or two nights, under general anesthesia and its duration varies from two to three hours or so. Upon awakening it is possible to feel pain and a sense of constriction in the affected area, sensations that take about ten days to disappear completely. After the operation I first apply a compression bandage and, after a few days, I remove it and use a restraining bandage to hold it for about four weeks.
The scars will be minimal and will turn into small, slightly visible white marks. During the recovery, which goes from six to eight weeks, it is necessary to rest from all physical exertion and avoid work for about two weeks. At the end of the course, my patient will be able to appreciate his new abdomen, firmer and more toned, which gives the whole body back its natural charm.
