Abdominoplasty

   

     An abdominoplasty is an excision of redundant abdominal skin after childbirth or weight loss together with a repair of the weakened abdominal wall beneath. It is a substantial operation performed under general anaesthesia.  Aggressive excisions  may  requiring repositioning of the navel and hospitalization or convalescent facility for several days.   Less ambitious but still pleasing results may be obtained without either.  The incision and resulting scar is a low curving one just above the pubic hair. Sutures are generally removed by the end of the second week and most patients stay home from work for one to two weeks. Insurance reimburses instances when there is an abdominal wall hernia.
