How many sittings
Patient is given anesthesia before the surgery and then under complete sedation trained plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala will make horizontally oriented incision between the patient’s navel and pubic hairline. All the excessive layers of fat and skin tissues are removed by you’re the plastic surgeon, and a new belly button opening is made. Finally, the incisions are closed with sutures and drainage tubes are placed around the area to prevent accumulation of blood and fluid. These are removed a couple of days after surgery and patient may be given special garment to prevent fluid buildup in that area which can be worn while moving around the house in Orlando Florida.
Post-surgery, you will find that your tummy has gained a contoured shape and is more aesthetically appealing and is more in proportion with your body weight. Adequate rest and restricted movements are required to safeguard the incision stitches.
