Abdominoplasty(Tummy Tuck)

The quest for a perfect figure is the desire of most women. Repeated pregnancies, aging and rapid weight loss contribute to a sagging abdomen.

Many women are not happy with their sagging abdomen or belly. Whatever be the cause, one can get a flat belly and the washboard appearance by getting an abdominoplasty, also called "tummy tuck" surgery. The procedure can act as a psychological booster when performed with an experienced surgeon and can produce gratifying results that will boost up one’s confidence and self esteem

Although abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure, it is important that you be aware of all the issues involved. There are various surgical techniques and it is better that you discuss these with your surgeon before going under the knife. A perfectly done procedure will give you a flatter, tighter stomach. Stretch marks on your lower abdomen will also become less visible.

The procedure

A Classical abdominoplasty may take two to five hours while mini abdominoplasty may need one to two hours. Surgery is done under spinal or general anesthesia. You can be back to work in 2-4 weeks time. The results following abdominoplasty are permanent.

Surgical cuts are made into your abdomen by the surgeon. Belly button is cut from the surrounding skin. Thereafter, the surgeon pulls together torn or stretched muscles and stitches them into place. This is necessary in order to produce the washboard appearance that most women seek for following a tummy tuck. If there is an associated hernia then the hernia is repaired. Excess fat is removed as well. Then the excess skin is pulled down and trimmed off. Belly button is repositioned to fit into the new tummy shape. The procedure is often combined with liposuction to contour the abdomen, flanks and love handles. The whole idea is to sculpt the body and achieve the figure that one is desirous of.

Prior to surgery, you may be asked by your surgeon to lose weight, stop taking the contraceptive pill, give up smoking and avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements.

Abdominoplasty requires a surgeon’s expertise to produce aesthetically satisfying results.
