Achieve a Flat and Well-Toned Abdomen with Tummy Tuck Surgery

Share Button

Often, people who lose weight significantly end up with loose or hanging folds of skin. Multiple pregnancies can also stretch the abdominal skin so badly that it creates stretch marks or folds.  Even people of normal body weight and proportion can develop loose or sagging skin. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is the ideal solution for such conditions.

This plastic surgery procedure involves the removal of excess fat and skin that builds up in the abdominal or belly area which is resistant to diet and exercise. This abdominal contouring procedure is popular because it can help men and women who are conscious about their appearance to achieve a flat and well-toned tummy and look and feel good in all types of outfits. It helps to restore the weakened or separated muscles thereby creating a toned and smoother abdominal profile. It tightens the muscles and fascia of the abdominal wall to result in a more natural contour.

Ideal Candidates for The Procedure

Generally, men and women who are in good health and have excess skin and fat in the abdomen can undergo this surgical procedure. It is also important that you are close to your ideal weight and have realistic expectations. Research published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports that many women who were just under borderline for overweight experience lasting weight loss one year after abdominoplasty.  The plastic surgeon may advise liposuction along with a tummy tuck to improve the results.

This procedure is not a substitute for a weight loss program. Also, this cannot completely correct stretch marks, though they can be improved to some extent if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be excised. Moreover, women who are planning to become pregnant in future are advised to postpone their tummy tuck surgery.

The Procedure

There are various approaches such as full abdominoplasty and mini tummy tuck. The plastic surgeon will determine the right option you should have based on the extent of correction required.

Advanced modalities such as laser-assisted SmartLipo Triplex, radiofrequency-assisted BodyTite and ultrasound-assisted VASER are used to achieve the desired body contouring effects. These safe, minimally invasive body contouring technologies can provide optimal results with high-definition sculpting capabilities and proven tissue coagulation and skin tightening benefits.

Minor swelling and bruising will be quite common after the surgery. You may have to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling and to support the abdomen as it heals.  In most cases, the recovery can take up to 2 weeks after the surgery (which may vary depending on the type of tummy tuck undergone and the patient’s physical condition).

If you are planning to undergo abdominoplasty, it is important to select a qualified and skilled plastic surgeon to ensure safe procedures and optimal results.
