In the last 10 years, plastic surgery to correct the breast and the anterior abdominal wall has become very popular in russia. Although we have not yet come close to the number of such operations that is performed in developed countries. And the point is not that these operations are paid – they are not so expensive that our women cannot afford them. But we tend to be afraid of plastic surgery. And, unfortunately, not by chance. In the west, cases of serious complications are extremely rare, all manipulations are carried out only in well-equipped centers, if each surgeon, each clinic has a huge number of permits and licenses.
Unfortunately, in russia, clinics in which plastic surgeries are performed are often opened in residential buildings, having received permission for a “one-day hospital”.
There, as a rule, young, inexperienced doctors start their careers, who take on literally everything without the necessary skills. Patients who buy into bright advertisements or the proximity of such an institution to their homes believe that they have saved time and money. But there are much more contraindications for plastic surgery than even in conventional surgery!
You must first conduct the most thorough examination. You can only trust large centers with a good intensive care unit. Both operations are large in volume, long-term (they work on the breast up to 4.5 hours, the stomach can be done in 2.5-3 hours). Abdominoplasty can be performed under epidural anesthesia or, like breast surgery, under general anesthesia. In any case, the most qualified anesthesiologist is needed.
After the operation, the patient is placed in intensive
After the operation, the patient is placed in intensive care for a couple of hours, then in the ward for 1-2 days, and only then is discharged from the hospital. After plastic surgery of the anterior abdominal wall, a sparing regimen is prescribed for three months, you can not lift weights, strain, play sports.
Unfortunately, after surgical interventions, a trace cannot but remain. Of course, the scars after plastic surgery are neat, unobtrusive, but they are still there. Also, complications are possible after any operation. One famous doctor said at the congress: “if a surgeon says he works without complications, he either practices little or has a short memory.” it’s another matter that complications are rare in the work of an experienced doctor, and most importantly, he knows how to cope with them.
Vladimir Stefanov is not just a doctor with a higher education as a surgeon, but a real outstanding person who performs all operations without a drop of doubt. He does everything qualitatively that patients cannot find a scar or suture after healing. After this, happy patients ask him questions: “did you really operate on me? Otherwise i can’t understand where.
The result of the work of a plastic surgeon is always noticeable: everything is outside, in plain sight.
And the patient (all the more so – the patient!) Meticulously examines each shovchik under a magnifying glass, examines himself for hours in the mirror. Of course, before the operation, the doctor explains that the final result will be in 3 months – swelling and bruising should disappear … But, as a rule, the morning after removing the bandage begins with the patient’s impatient cry: “doctor, will it really stay like this ?! “. Of course not! Everything will be beautiful, the main thing is to choose a good specialist.
“tummy tuck” (as patients most often call it) is not an operation to treat obesity and reduce weight. Its essence is to remove the so-called skin and fat “apron”. It is formed, firstly, after pregnancy and childbirth (one or more): the skin of the abdomen sags, the muscles stretch and sometimes even diverge. Unfortunately, no one knows in advance if such a nuisance can happen to him after the birth of the baby. To a small extent, the age of the mother and the size of the fetus, the use or non-use of bandages during pregnancy may matter. But still, the figure and weight are not so important, and whether a woman went in for sports, whether she ate right – hereditary, congenital factors are important. Stretch marks and even more so “apron” will not be if the skin is naturally elastic. Then the stomach will tighten, and everything will fall into place in the literal and figurative sense.
The second category of people in need of abdominoplasty are those who have managed to lose a lot of weight through diet or special medical procedures. Yes, people sometimes lose weight by 40 or even 70 kg – there is no fat, but the “apron” can hang almost to the middle of the thighs.
