Tummy tuck also known as abdominoplasty in medical terms, is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat and skin and tightens the abdominal muscles to give a flat rejuvenated appearance to the tummy. It is done for both men and women with good health. It is often done to reshape the tummy after gaining and losing a lot of weight or after pregnancy. In the case of women, pregnancy tends to weaken their abdominal muscles and to naturally regain the shape is a difficult process. Tummy tuck is a remedy for this and can be considered as a measure to regain the shape.
There are two ways in which tummy tuck can be done. They are mini tummy tuck and complete abdominoplasty. The type of procedure would depend on the extent of skin laxity. In mini tummy tuck, a smaller skin incision is put and the lower abdominal lax skin is excised without the need for umbilical repositioning.
In a full tummy tuck surgery a large incision is made across the lower tummy from hip to hip just above the pubic area. A second incision is also made to free the belly button. The skin is separated from the abdominal wall and abdominal muscles are realigned by removing excess fat and skin. A new hole is cut for belly button and it is repostioned back in new position. It takes around 4 to 5 hours to complete the procedure. An expert doctor’s service is needed to perform this surgery There is increased risk of complications if the patient is diabetic, has heart, lung or liver disease or is a smoker. General/regional anesthesia is given during abdominoplasty procedure.
The results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent. To maintain the results , avoid big fluctuation in the weight. After surgery it is recommended to wear compression garments and instructions are given how to position themselves while sitting or lying down. Tummy tuck removes the stretch marks that are below the belly button. A surgeon’s fee for tummy tuck will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used and the geographical location of the hospital.
It takes about 4-6 weeks for a person to go about their regular life after a tummy tuck.A follow up appointment is needed to make sure that the wound is healing properly. The more extensive the abdominal contouring is, the longer it may take to recover fully. The final results of tummy tuck surgery may be initially obscured by swelling and your inability to stand fully upright until internal health is complete. Within a week or two , the person should be standing straight and confident in the new slimmer profile. Tummy tuck will result in a flatter , firmer ,abdominal contour ,that is more proportionate to the person’s body type and weight. The appearance completely changes after the procedure and rejuvenated new appearance surely boost the self confidence of the person. A proper diet and regular exercise is very important to maintain the new appearance.
