Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
This cosmetic surgery is performed in order to flatten the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin from the middle and lower abdomen and also to restore or tighten the weakened and separated muscles in your abdominal wall. It should not be considered the same as liposuction although it is often combined with liposuction contouring, breast reduction or breast lift. When it is performed with breast procedures it is usually called Mommy Makeover.
Males and females, both the genders having good health condition can undergo this surgery. People who have sagging skin after a drastic weight loss or the females who have loose tissues, muscles and excess skin after several pregnancies prefer this surgery to have a toned body. Even individuals with normal body weight and proportion can develop a loose and sagging skin due to several reasons such as aging, heredity, prior surgery or sometimes due to significant fluctuation of the weight.
Facts to be considered
If you are planning to have a baby or lose some significant weight then you must postpone your surgery, and wait until you stabilize your body weight and become a mother. This surgery will not assist you to correct your stretch marks although during the process the excess skin with stretch marks may get removed. Your surgeon will review your medical history, do your physical examination, discuss your expectations and may get the photos clicked before the surgery.
The techniques of the surgery
You must analyze your situation with the help of detailed discussion with your surgeon before arriving at a decision as the procedures which your surgeon is going to opt for depends upon the amount of skin and fat you wish to remove. He may advise the following techniques:
This is the most common and standard abdominoplasty. In this procedure, the surgeon will make an incision from hip bone to hip bone just above the pubic area which will be in a horizontal oval shape, and then he will shape the skin, tissue and muscles as needed. Liposuction is often combined with this to refine the transition. Your navel (belly button) will be moved to free it from surrounding tissues. Drainage tubes may be needed for the drainage of excess fluid and blood afterwards. These will be removed when the surgeon sees it right.
This is an ultimate re-contouring procedure. It is also called Belt Lipectomy. It is an extended abdominoplasty combined with buttock lift. It will have a longer incision to remove the excess skin and soft tissues from lower tummy, butts, hips, and thighs. Your belly button is also repositioned.
Mini or Partial abdominoplasty is opted when people have fat deposits below their navel and have less excess sagging skin. It is performed with shorter and lesser incisions and even your belly button is not moved. Liposuction is often used to contour the transition zone. It will certainly have fewer scars and will take less recovery period.
