Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty

Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. After multiple pregnancies or large weight loss, abdominal muscles weaken, and skin in the area can become loose. Abdominoplasty can tighten the abdominal muscles and, in some instances, improve stretch marks. In men and women who have fat that is concentrated in the abdomen, the procedure will remove excess skin and fat. The surgery may not eliminate minor wrinkling or take the place of dieting, but it can improve a loss of skin elasticity in combination with localised fat accumulation.

This operation may be performed under general anaesthesia and you may need to stay in hospital for one or two days.. The surgeon works through a low abdominal incision that spans the hips.The skin is detached from the abdominal wall to reveal the muscles and fascia to be tightened. The muscle fascia wall is tightened with sutures.The sagging skin will be pulled down over the abdomen before it is removed, so it would be necessary to release the navel from its surrounding skin and bring it out through a new skin opening in the skin flap The. scars across the public area and around the navel are permanent but improve ,flatten and lighten in colour over time.

Sometimes, abdominoplasty may be combined with liposuction of the upper part of abdomen and flanks to achieve the best result. In some instances, when skin laxity and muscle weakness are limited to the area below the navel, a modified or mini abdominoplasty may be required. This procedure usually leaves a shorter scar and no scarring around the navel and recovery time is less. Endoscopic abdominoplasty is another technique for limiting scars and is useful when patients have only a minimal amount of excess skin and muscle laxity

After the surgery, you will be advised to wear a light support garment during the recovery period and to avoid strenuous activity for a few weeks.Dr Anup Dhir performs all types of tummy tuck procedures at Image medical cen
