Abdominoplasty is the surgical cosmetic procedure more commonly known as a tummy-tuck surgery where a plastic surgeon will flatten a protruding abdomen through fat removal (liposuction), excess skin removal and muscular tightening in the lower stomach, waist and pelvic region. People who have stretch marks on their lower abdomen that lies in the area of surgery will also enjoy removal of those marks. It is popular with women who have stopped bearing children, people who have lost excess weight and have a flabby abdomen or loose muscles that deforms natural body contours. This procedure is cosmetic and elective in nature, resulting mostly in increased self-esteem that stems from a better looking body.
This article will briefly go over the procedure known as a tummy tuck. There are several techniques for a tummy tuck and the two most common ones are discussed below.
For a full tummy tuck, an incision will be made across the lower stomach in addition to the traditional incision around the belly button. From the surgical site, excess skin is snipped away while the muscles are tightened and liposuction is also utilized to shape the contours of the waist. In a full abdominoplasty loose skin is removed from the navel down to the pelvic area that is in excess due to pregnancies, hereditary factors or obesity.
For a mini tummy tuck, a single incision of size varying from a few inches to all along the abdomen is made as low on the pelvic region as possible through which your plastic surgeon will excise loose skin, tighten flabby muscles and apply liposuction if necessary. A mini abdominoplasty candidate is ideally an individual who sports a protruding belly (loose skin and fat) below the belly button. This procedure is advised for those people who are in good health and as close as possible to their ideal weight but have come to discover that diet and exercise won’t help improving their body shape.
Outlined below are the basic steps taken for tummy tuck surgery.
