Cummerband abdominoplasty refers to a tummy tuck technique developed by Dr. Shahram and entails removing the excess skin and fat of the tummy area, whilst simultaneously preserving the inner facia of the lower abdomen entirely, then plicating and tightening this after addressing and tightening the abdominal muscles. The advantages of preserving this tissue and tightening it, like a cummerbund used in tuxedos, is that the natural contour of the abdomen is preserved, and the waistline improves, unlike the typical traditional abdominoplasty, which resembles a barrel shape. It also preserves the lower lymphatics, improves the safety of the procedure, and drastically facilitates recovery.
In-patient, usually a two-night stay.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
The swelling of the lower abdomen is slightly more in the first few weeks. By preserving the lower abdominal lymphatics, the rate of seroma and hematoma and even infection is drastically reduced.
This is a very safe procedure that can even be used in smokers and diabetics.
Recovery is quicker than the traditional tummy tuck, with the drain, if used at all, removed before the patient leaves the hospital. A garment should be used for 4 weeks.
The results are impressive with a low scar, improved waistline and a natural looking but improved tummy.
In a traditional abdominoplasty all the skin and fat of the lower abdomen is removed, the muscles are plicated and the skin redraped, this typically results in a shapeless, barrel looking unnatural but flat abdomen. In cummerband abdominoplasty the skin and fat is removed from the lower abdomen leaving the superficial facsia of the lower abdomen in-tact which after the plication of the muscles under it, its lifted and brought in and plicated also, leaving a completely natural looking 3 dimentional waist and abdomen and also lifts a bit the thighs. It takes a bit longer in the operating room but the recovery is way faster and the results way superior.
