When there is excess abdominal fat coupled with weakened abdominal muscles and/or excess and loose hanging lower abdominal skin, then the candidate may require this surgery. Yes, genetics and/or pregnancies have an important role in the sagging of the abdominal skin. But this sagging skin can be surgically removed by a procedure known as Abdominoplasty or commonly known as Tummy tuck.
The procedure of tummy tuck: First of all, your surgeon performs liposuction of the abdomen. This step increases the mobility of the abdominal skin and which is an added advantage for better draping and contouring of the skin. Then the surgeon makes a horizontal incision above the pubic region in the natural crease line and a second incision may be required around the navel. The abdominal wall (muscles and fascia) is then tightened with the underlying tissues using sutures. The excess skin is then removed and the abdominal skin is pulled downward and sutured at the natural crease line. An opening (a small one) is made to get the navel through. This procedure may improve upon the stretch marks made during pregnancy and make it better.
Tummy tuck (Lipo-abdominoplasty) is performed by well-experienced, seasoned cosmetic surgeon at Cutis cosmetic plastic surgery center.
The best way to prevent complications is to follow the instructions of the surgeon before and after the surgery. The complications are more possible to occur in smokers and diabetics. And after the surgery, the patient will have to come for follow-up visits for a prescribed time period.
The surgery’s effect lasts for a very long time. Unless there is sudden gain of weight or pregnancy in the near future, your tummy shall stay flat for years to come. Once the procedure is done, you have got yourself a flat tummy and a peak in self-confidence to take on the world.
