WHAT TO EXPECT
Mini Abdominoplasty is a procedure to reduce the excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen.
The degree of excess skin and fat differs in amount and distribution amongst individuals. The choice of technique varies based on each individual patient.
The standard abdominoplasty involves creating a transverse scar on the lower abdomen/pubis. The skin and fat are lifted off from the muscles, the muscles are tightened, and the excess tissues are trimmed. The umbilicus is relocated at a new point on the ‘new tummy’. This technique addresses the excess tissues in the front of the abdomen but may not treat any excess fat on the flanks. This maybe further addressed in a second stage with liposuction.
Every effort is made to produce a single longitudinal scar, however, in a few instances there may also be a small vertical component in the midline
below the umbilicus.
The mini-abdominoplasty involves removing the excess skin and fat from under the area under the umbilicus without having to relocate the umbilicus.

This will be performed under a general anaesthetic (that is, you will put to sleep by an experienced consultant anaesthetist). Most patients are able to go home on the following day.
Mr. Oudit will visit you in the morning of your surgery. If you have any further questions you would like to ask him prior to the operation, he would be most delighted to answer these for you. He will then place some marks on your chest. This is an integral part of the process.
About 30-45 minutes prior to your operation you will picked up by friendly staff members and brought to the operating theatre suite.
Your operation will be done in a safe and caring manner respecting your dignity all the time.
You will have 2 drains emerging from the wound to aid in draining the extra fluid from the wound.
AFTER THE OPERATION
You will be recovered in a safe environment by caring staff members before you are transferred to the ward where you will be nursed overnight. The following day, if you have drains, these will be removed, and you will be discharged after Mr. Oudit has seen you. You will be seen in the Outpatient’s clinic one week after your surgery. The dressings will be removed, and wounds inspected. You will then be seen the following week to ensure the wounds are healed and all is well. You will then be reviewed 3 months and then at 6 months later for the final time before discharge.
