Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty)
Brazilian Tummy Tuck Surgery
The Avelar abdominoplasty is a tumescent liposuction-assisted tummy tuck procedure that was developed during the 1990s in Brazil. Patients who are looking for a less invasive alternative to the traditional tummy tuck may be ideal candidates for an Avelar abdominoplasty. Dr. Paine performs the Avelar abdominoplasty surgery.
Should You Consider Avelar Abdominoplasty
An Avelar Abdominoplasty tummy tuck serves a similar purpose to that of the traditional tummy tuck, but focuses on the lower region of the abdomen. Men and women who are struggling with excess skin around the lower abdomen may find this procedure an excellent alternative. The Avelar abdominoplasty can also reduce stubborn fat in the midsection.
The Avelar abdominoplasty is designed to minimize patient discomfort and recovery time—providing men and women with an attractive, less-invasive alternative to the traditional tummy tuck. Men and women who are unhappy with a significant abdominal bulge or paunch would benefit from an Avelar tummy tuck. However, those with larger amounts of hanging skin may not be right for this procedure. A determination can be made during the initial consultation with your doctor.
Abdominoplasty Tummy Tuck Steps
Dr. Paine will perform your abdominoplasty tummy tuck surgery using anesthesia. Rather than the long, horizontal incision that is used with a traditional tummy tuck, Dr. Paine will make a series of smaller incisions along the abdomen. Tumescent liposuction is then used to reduce excess fat from the upper and lower abdomen. Dr. Paine will then carefully stretch the abdominal skin downward to reposition it for a firmer, slimmer look, and feel.
After Your Avelar Abdominoplasty
Recovery from an Avelar abdominoplasty will be quicker than that of a traditional tummy tuck. You should be able to return to work and normal activity within 1 to 2 weeks. Dr. Paine will provide you with a compression garment, which you will need to wear for a few weeks to help minimize swelling.
Once you are fully healed, you will notice a slimmer and well-toned abdomen. Your skin will feel tighter, and you should be able to see more definition of your abdomen. In order to maintain long-term results, it is important to stick to a healthy lifestyle.
