Get Your Belly Flat With A Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Date :25-Jul-2019

What is Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure. It is effective in eliminating the excess fat and skin from your abdominal area to flatten the tummy. It is also beneficial in tightening the muscles around the abdominal region. It’s a minimally invasive procedure with shorter incisions.

Ideal candidate for Abdominoplasty:

Non-smokers, people with good physical health and stable weight are the best candidates for abdominoplasty. This surgery is one of the best options for slightly obese people whose skins have lost the required elasticity and also for women whose muscles have stretched up due to pregnancy.

The procedure:

The patient is placed under general or spinal anesthesia during an abdominoplasty, an incisions is made on the lower belly, just above your (pubic ) hairline, the skin is separated from the abdominal muscles, muscles are pulled together and are stitched into a place to get the required narrow and firm abdomen. Thereafter, the separated flap of skin is stretched over the newly tightened muscles, the excess skin is removed and the navel is attached to a position so as to get the natural look. Finally the belly button is refashioned into a better position on your belly. The surgical procedure comes to an end by closing the incisions and by applying a sterile dressing over the area. It takes just two to four hours to complete the entire procedure.

Recovering from Abdominoplasty:

For a week or two, patients are recommended to avoid any sort of strenuous activity like lifting heavy weights or running. After that the patient can gradually increase their activity levels.
