Descrição do Caso Clínico
After two pregnancies there was a large diastasis (a great distancing) of the straight abdominal muscles, which conditioned the “still pregnant” appearance she had until the date when the surgery was performed (about a year after the last delivery).
This woman underwent two procedures in a single surgery – liposuction of the flanks and abdominoplasty with correction of the rectus abdominus:
- Abdominoplasty – To remove stretch marks and some localized fat, correct flaccidity and diastasis (pulling away) of the straight abdominal muscles. This surgery consists of a plicature of the muscles (which translates into a better definition of the waist and has the effect of an internal girdle) and resection of the excess skin, with the transposition of the navel.
- Liposuction – To better define the contour of the back, a Vibroliposuction was performed, using the tumescent technique.
In the post-surgical phase, it is necessary to rest, avoid strenuous activity, use a compression girdle, and perform lymphatic drainages.
The description of this clinical case is merely informative and does not dispense consultation with a specialist in plastic surgery, since only through this consultation is it possible to clarify the indication for each procedure, as well as the inherent risks and complications.
