BlogA Reshaping Miracle: Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Tummy tuck is the cosmetic medical procedure which aims to improve the appearance of the abdomen by reshaping it surgically. During a tummy tuck (“abdominoplasty” in medicine) excess skin and fat around the abdomen are removed, leaving a healthier and fitter look.
Who Tummy Tuck is for?
Anybody who has cracks and sagging problems around the belly, but is looking for a boost in body image is a candidate for Tummy Tuck. Women who has given birth, people who rapidly lost weight or has excess fat and skin around the belly are among those.
Who Tummy Tuck is not for?
The procedure might not be an alternative for everyone. Your surgeon might caution against abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) when:
– You are planning to lose a significant amount of weight
– You are considering pregnancy
– You have a severe chronic issue, such as diabetes or heart disease
– You have a BMI (body mass index) above 30
– You are smoking
– You had abdominal surgery in the past that left a significant scar tissue
How to prepare for Tummy Tuck?
Your first step must be consulting a doctor to get your medical history reviewed. He/she will want to learn your current and past medical conditions, including all the medications and surgeries. Through these meetings, ask all your questions and tell your doctor your motivation and expectations from Tummy Tuck.
If you’re a smoker, stop if possible. Smoking decreases blood flow and slows any healing process. If you smoke, your doctor will probably recommend that you stop smoking, at least before surgery and during recovery period.
You’ll also have to stop certain medications like aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements which can increase bleeding.
As soon as you decided for a tummy tuck try to maintain your body weight till the procedure. If you’re overweight, your doctor might ask you to lose weight before the procedure. This is because significant weight loss after the procedure will diminish all your gains from the surgery.
How Tummy Tuck is done?
The procedure is done in surgical facilities and you’ll be under general anesthesia. Total time it takes will be two to three hours.
You will have several options of procedures, depending on the type of change you want to see. During a typical abdominoplasty, your plastic surgeon will make incisions to remove unwanted skin and fat. Connective tissue (fascia) that lies over the abdominal muscles will be tightened with permanent sutures.
Then the skin around your bellybutton will be repositioned and your bellybutton will be brought out through a small incision and fixed in its ideal position. The incision above the pubic hair will be stitched and will leave a scar that falls along the natural crease within the bikini line.
