Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck Surgery
Surgeons refer to tummy tuck surgeries as Abdominoplasty. The procedure is completely different from Liposuction, though a liposuction may as well be performed during an Abdominoplasty.
WHAT IS Abdominoplasty?
It is a surgical procedure as well as a cosmetic procedure in which one’s abdominal region is flattened, made thinner and firmer by removing extra fat, skin, and at the end tightening the muscles in the abdominal wall.
It isn’t a weight losing tool because it only focuses on the abdominal region. Men and women who have failed to achieve a firmer tummy through diet, sit-ups, and other exercises can consider Abdominoplasty as an ideal solution
When aesthetically conducted, the procedure eliminates all the unwanted flab, excessive skin and fat, allowing you to enjoy the best body contour
Candidates Of Abdominoplasty
Considering a consultation may help you evaluate your candidacy for Abdominoplasty but an overview of the ideal candidates is;
- Women who have had multiple pregnancies and still have that droopy belly.
- Those with extra skin and muscle weakness in the abdominal region
- Individuals in a relatively good physical shape and health
- Men and women who were once obese
- Aging can also lead to a sagging abdominal wall requiring surgical assistance to get back the best shape
The Procedure Of Abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty takes two or more forms, each performed as per the patient’s requirement, the amount of fat and skin and so on. The procedures are performed under local anesthesia, but one may require hospitalization for a single day for monitoring.
Before the Abdominoplasty surgery in India, you will need to have a consultation in which the surgeon will explain the pros and cons or risks and complications of the procedure.
Partial OR Mini Abdominoplasty
Also known as Mini tummy tucks, they may take up to two hours and are performed on patients whose fat deposits are situated below the navel. There is no repositioning of the navel and only a single incision is made
It is a bit lengthy procedure in which an incision is made from one side of the hipbone to another in order to correct the abdominal region. Usually, the navel is repositioned and drainage tubes will be inserted under your skin.
It is for those with massive weight loss with extreme loss of skin elasticity. This procedure involves removing excessive skin from the surrounding abdominal regions
Who Shouldn’t Consider Abdomioplasty
- Those with hopes of getting pregnant in the future
- Those planning to lose weight
- In case you smoke, the surgeon may instruct you to withdraw for at least 2 or 3 weeks. Much as the surgeon may withhold one from smoking, smokers are usually not ideal candidates for the tummy tuck surgery
Risks & Complications Of The Surgery
Pain and Swelling are common side effects of the surgery, but the surgeon may prescribe painkillers to stop or control the pain.
Numbness & Bruising
This may also occur, but usually fades with time
Infections may occur in the case of any surgery, antibiotics must be taken as prescribed to avoid infections
Bleeding & Blood Clots
