What is Tummy Tuck?

Also known as Abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery used to remove excess fat and skin from the upper and lower abdominal area resulting in a more flat and well- toned abdomen. It also restores the weakened muscle and helps tone a loose or sagging abdominal muscle caused by:

    1. Aging
    2. Pregnancy
    3. Weight fluctuation
    4. Prior surgery

Types of Tummy Tuck Surgeries (Abdominoplasty)

Complete abdominoplasty- The surgeon will cut the abdomen from hipbone to hipbone and then contour the skin, tissue, and muscle as needed. The surgery will involve moving the belly button, and may need drainage tubes to be put under the skin for a few days.

Partial or mini abdominoplasty- Mini-abdominoplasties are often done on people whose fat deposits are located below the navel. During this procedure, the surgeon most likely will not move the belly button, and the procedure may only take up to two hours, depending on the case.

What does Tummy Tuck procedure do?

A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program and its effect may be significantly diminished if there are frequent fluctuations in weight. It also does not help in correction of stretch marks. Tummy tuck simply gives a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more proportionate with the body type and weight.

Who is the right candidate for Tummy Tuck?

You are a suitable candidate for this procedure if you have:

    1. Good physical health and a stable body weight
    2. Realistic expectations from the surgery
    3. No smoking habit.
    4. Concerns like loose or sagging or protruding abdominal fat.
    5. Had multiple pregnancy and wish to have a firmer abdomen.

Who is the right person to perform a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is surgery similar to any other and must only be performed by a board certified and experienced plastic surgeon.
