What Is Tummy Tuck Surgery – Abdominoplasty?

Tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery method used for making abdomen slimmer, firmer and tauter. During the surgery, excessive fat and skin is removed from middle as well as lower abdomen. Apart from that the procedure also helps with tightening the abdominal wall muscles.

 

In case of excessive fat build-up around the abdomen, liposuction can effectively reduce the fat volume but it does not remove saggy skin. Individuals with flabby belly fat or those having excessive stretch marks and scars from giving a birth can consider tummy tuck to improve their body contours. 

Who Needs Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Tummy tuck surgery is recommended for individuals who:

  • Lost a lot of weight
  • Have saggy abdomen caused by elasticity loss
  • Have stretch marks and saggy skin after childbirth
  • Lost of skin elasticity due to quick weight loss/gain
  • Wish to refine their skin after having a liposuction

Who Needs Tummy Tuck Surgery?

1. Partial Abdominal Lift

 

In this procedure, an incision is made under the belly button ideally in cases where sagging becomes notable in lower abdomen. It does not affect the shape of the belly button. Similar to a C-section, an incision is made below the bikini line and it is readily hidden behind a regular swimwear.

2. Overall Abdominal Lift

 

It is a common treatment method which addresses sagging of the abdomen with an incision from the top of belly button to lower abdomen. It is recommended for individuals who are around 20% overweight compared to the normal BMI. The incision made is larger compared to the C-section, but the treated area can be hidden easily behind swimwear or underwear. The shape and location of the belly button can be altered if necessary.

3. Extended Abdominal Lift

 

If the patient has sagging skin both at the front of the abdomen as well as the sides, an extended incision that goes beyond the regular abdominal lifting procedure is required to address loose skin, excess fat and muscles in that area to achieve an over abdominal lift. The location or shape of the belly button may be improved, and a better and complete result can be expected with wider liposuction area.
