The first interaction with Dr.Kumar will be a detailed discussion explaining the procedures,your requirements and deciding the best possible procedure which would benefit you. It would include a thorough assessment of your skin quality,amount of excess skin,the present tone of the abdominal muscles & hernial sites.Remember  a good result depends on the best possible procedure for that individual considering his/her parameters and not a generalized approach for all the patients.

You will be best advised & explained regarding the current status and the possible options which could benefit you from the surgery. One can see the representative clinical pictures of patients to be satisfied before deciding for a procedure.One should be well prepared with the medical history (if any) at the time of consultation.This would include any information about medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments received, previous surgeries.Depending upon the individual one can consider combining an abdominoplasty along  with liposuction of the thighs for optimal results. Routine diagnostic tests will be ordered.

Once the decision to undergo surgery has been taken, patient is assessed for fitness for anaesthesia & surgery. Dr. Kumar will examine the abdomen,its measurements and clinical photographs for the medical record. The skin quality, amount of fat deposited, tone of muscles and presence of any hernia or scar will be noted. If hernia is suspected a USG will be mandatory.The consent forms along with detailed preoperative instructions would be given.

The patient has to report to the hospital on the day of surgery. The abdominal markings would be done in standing position before going to the operating room for better judgement of desired shape. The operation will be performed under general anaesthesia and would be pain free.
