Part of getting an abdominoplasty is attending an abdominoplasty consultation. There are many necessary topics which are addressed during a consultation including preparation, the process of the operation itself, and recovery steps. Equally important, an abdominoplasty consultation gives you an opportunity to meet and evaluate a surgeon personally. Since this is the person who will be cutting you open, you definitely want it to be someone you can trust and who will honor your personal vision.
When you meet the surgeon, you will discuss your goals for your appearance and have a chance to review before and after photos of previous patients. Your surgeon may offer you some suggestions based on your body type and describe some possible outcomes of the surgery. During this time you can both come to a plan of action for the abdominoplasty and you can learn details of how the procedure will be carried out.
You can at this point ask the surgeon for references if you haven’t made up your mind for sure. References will be past patients who can testify to the surgeon’s skill and the satisfaction they received from the results. You can then make an appointment for the surgery. The surgeon will provide you with additional instructions at this point. Be sure to follow these instructions so that you have the safest and most effective possible abdominoplasty operation. You will also be given post operative care instructions. Recovery from abdominoplasty is an involved process which will involve several nights of hospital care before you get to go home, after which point recovery will continue to involve a compression garment for about a month.
If you have any questions or concerns, your consultation is the time and place to ask your surgeon about whatever is on your mind. If there are options for anesthesia you will be able to declare your preference at this point in the process. A consultation is an important step in abdominoplasty because it allows you to become more informed, meet your surgeon, and make key decisions about the process.
Abdominoplasty, also called a tummy tuck, is a common plastic surgery operation which can have extremely dramatic results. Not everyone is a good candidate for abdominoplasty though. Are you?
A good candidate for abdominoplasty should be at a stable weight; if you are fluctuating, you will want to wait for your wait to stabilize before deciding to get abdominoplasty. Your lifestyle is important too. An abdominoplasty isn’t just an easy shortcut to lose unwanted weight. If you don’t work out and if you eat poorly, you shouldn’t be considering a tummy tuck to lose weight. Abdominoplasty is a solution for a person who can’t lose weight in spite of reasonable efforts in that direction through exercise and eating right. If you work out and eat well and still have stubborn deposits of fat, then abdominoplasty may be able to help you.
Are you expecting perfection from abdominoplasty? If so, you are not a good candidate. No surgery can grant physical perfection or social esteem. What abdominoplasty can do is bring you closer to your physical ideal and give you some confidence. With that confidence you may be able to improve your social life. A lot of people find abdominoplasty to be a life-changing procedure, but you are ultimately responsible for making it become one.
Finally, you should only consider an abdominoplasty if you are in good health. If you have any health conditions, let the surgeon know in advance so that he or she can advise you as to whether you should get the operation or not. If you think you might be a great candidate for abdominoplasty, then call up a local surgeon and get a consultation. During the consultation you can discuss your goals and learn more about the procedure. Once you come up with a plan which will get you as close to your ideal shape as possible, you will be able to schedule your abdominoplasty.
