WHAT IS ABDOMINOPLASTY OR TUMMY TUCK SURGERY?
Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery is an aesthetic plastic surgery procedure to remove excess skin and fats from the abdomen to provide a more toned and contoured appearance to your body. Natural body types with loose skin and poor elasticity, aging, prior c- section, and pregnancy contribute to abdominoplasty. Also, patients with excess skin around their belly button and weak abdominal walls go for abdominoplasty. Anyone in good physical health with no underlying diseases can benefit from the procedure.
You are the perfect candidate if you have realistic expectations and positive motivations for the outcomes of the surgery.
You may not be viable for going into a tummy tuck procedure if the prior abdominal surgery has caused the development of scar tissues. Similarly, if your BMI is greater than 30 and you plan to have babies in the future, you must not opt for the surgery. Patients with chronic conditions like diabetes and heart diseases are also not ideal for abdominoplasty.
HOW IS ABDOMINOPLASTY PERFORMED?
The typical abdominoplasty surgery is performed by administering local or general anesthesia. Incisions are made in horizontal, oval, or elliptical shapes to remove fats between the belly button and pubic area. Next, the fascia above the abdominal muscles is tightened and sutured permanently. Your plastic surgeon may also reposition the belly button by bringing it out with small incisions and suture it back to the normal position after tightening and repositioning the skin around it.
