The Sydney Abdominoplasty
The Sydney Abdominoplasty
The abdominoplasty is one of the procedures that is offered at The Dr Lanzer Clinic. Dr Lanzer is specialised in fat removal procedures as well as skin tightening procedures, which is why he is one of the most sought-after surgeons for tummy tuck surgery. If you are curious why you should choose Dr Lanzer for the Sydney tummy tuck, please read on.
Why Choose Dr Lanzer For The Sydney Tummy Tuck?
Dr Lanzer has enjoyed specialised training with Dr Marco Pelosi II and III, who are two cosmetic surgeons who specialised in procedures such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, and the breast reduction.
By obtaining additional training as a cosmetic surgeon, Dr Lanzer can provide customised procedures that can be more beneficial to patients. Opposed to providing a general treatment, Dr Lanzer tailors his treatments to the patient. By choosing Dr Lanzer for your procedure, you can therefore count on a procedure that is designed for you.
What Should I Know About The Sydney Tummy Tuck?
Even though traditional abdominoplasty can create a flatter abdomen for a patient, it can be associated with certain risks; this includes potential trauma and problems with the blood supply. So, even though this procedure can provide reduced physical pain such as reduced back pain, there is substantial risk associated with the original procedure.
With the arrival of the tummy tuck with tumescent liposuction, cosmetic surgeons have been able to reduce the risk of bleeding during and post-surgery. The tumescent solution used during the lipo procedure does not only numb the area with fat to be removed, it also seals some of the blood vessels, preventing excessive bleeding. Subsequently, the patient also experiences less post-operative discomfort.
What Is The Full Tummy Tuck Procedure?
The full abdominoplasty is a treatment where a cosmetic surgeon removes excess skin and fat from all over the abdomen. It can also involve the suturing of underlying abdominal muscles, which could have separated after a period of weight gain or pregnancy. The muscles can also be lifted to make the abdomen appear flatter and tighter.
Before you have any form of abdominoplasty, it is always a good idea to speak with your cosmetic surgeon about your goals. After a physical exam, Dr Lanzer can recommend the right treatment depending on the problems present and your desired outcome.
How Does Dr Lanzer Perform A Tummy Tuck?
First, Dr Lanzer make an incision along the bikini line. Then, he removes the belly button from the surrounding skin, this needs to be done to reposition the belly button later. When a patient has a significant amount of excess skin around the abdomen, it is likely that the belly button will have to be moved.
Once the belly button has been separated, Dr Lanzer will suction out persistent fat deposits and remove the excess skin through excision. Any underlying separated muscles are sutured, and the skin is pulled up to create the flatter abdomen.
Patients can also encounter a procedure called the mini tummy tuck. During this procedure, the belly button is not removed; this because fat and skin is only removed from the lower half of the abdomen.
There is also the dermolipectomy; this is the abdominoplasty procedure that does not require the suturing of the underlying abdominal muscles, but still involves the removal of fat and skin.
What Is The Lipo-Tuck?
A lipo-tuck is a procedure where the cosmetic surgeon uses tumescent fluid during the liposuction. Tumescent fluid has numerous benefits. Firstly, it sedates the treatment area. It also reduces the chance of bleeding, which has more benefits post-operatively; this includes post-operative discomfort.

Is The Abdominoplasty A Painful Procedure?
No, the patient is placed under a local or a general anaesthetic, which means they will not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure. However, it is possible that the patient experiences some discomfort once the sedation runs out. Discomfort can easily be managed with some over-the-counter medication, or Dr Lanzer can prescribe some medication for you.
How Long Do I Have To Recover From A Tummy Tuck Procedure?
Tummy tuck recovery times are different for every patient, as their healing process is unique. Dr Lanzer can provide you with a general idea of your recovery time. Nevertheless, this should be taken as a guideline and not the absolute time during which patients will recover.
How Long Does The Abdominoplasty Surgery Take?
Abdominoplasty surgery time can vary from patient to patient. It is subject to the scope of the procedure, in other words the amount of fat and skin that needs to be removed. Dr Lanzer can give you an indication of surgery time, but it may still vary on the day of the surgery.
Will I Have Any Scars After Abdominoplasty Surgery?
The scar left after this kind of surgery is situated 6-8 centimetres from the vagina; this means it can easily be hidden by underwear or a swimsuit.
What Happens To The Belly Button During Surgery?
The belly button can be separated from the skin and repositioned during this kind of surgery. However, the belly button does not have to be moved in all cases. To determine if the belly button needs to be moved, the cosmetic surgeon will determine where skin and fat must be removed before the surgery takes place.
When Are The Underlying Abdominal Muscles Sutured?
Suturing the abdominal muscles is only necessary when the muscles have been separated due to significant weight gain and pregnancy. Dr Lanzer can determine if the abdominal muscles need to be sutured before the procedure takes place.
Does The Abdominoplasty Require An Overnight Stay?
No. Dr Lanzer executes this procedure at his day surgery centre, which means it is done on an outpatient basis. Only in extreme rare cases does the patient require an overnight stay.
Can Lipo Be Done Separately From Skin Removal?
Dr Lanzer often waits six months after liposuction to excise the excess skin. During the liposuction, Dr Lanzer will remove fat through suction. He removes excess skin during the tummy tuck procedure, which takes place later on. During the tummy tuck, Dr Lanzer can also address muscle separation if required. Muscle tightening can also be a part of your procedure.
Are There Risks Associated With Abdominoplasty Surgery?
As this is a surgical procedure, you can expect some of the common risks associated with cosmetic surgery; this includes infection, swelling, and bruising. Patients should also expect to be left with a scar around their bikini line post-surgery.
What Is The Best Way To Decide On The Type Of Procedure That Is Right For Me?
As there are various techniques that can be implemented for a tummy tuck procedure, it is essential to book a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon such as Dr Lanzer to discuss your procedure including the costs. Once you have been evaluated medically, Dr Lanzer can determine the best treatment for your needs.
