Abdominoplasty


“Abdominoplasty is a way to removethe fat from the middle and lower abdomen to tighten the abdomen wall muscles”

Abdominoplasty

It is a cosmetic procedure used to remove excess fat or skin from the abdomen area. Also called as tummy tuck, this procedure involves the removal of fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscles of the abdomen wall.

Abdominoplasty is performed if regular exercise and diet doesn’t result any effect in reducing the fat deposited in that area. It is typically preferred by pregnant women whose tummies become loose after delivery and also by both men and women who have suddenly shed plenty of weight. If one is considering on having more kids, has to stabilise their weight or has some form of illness, they should reconsider getting abdominoplasty done.

Abdomioplasty is done under general anaesthesia and takes up to four-five hours. Usually performed as outpatient procedure, abdominoplasty is divided into different categories depending on the extent of the surgery.

Step 1 – Anesthesia

Step 2 – The incision

Step 3 – Closing the incisions

Your surgeon will create incisions to remove most of the skin and fat between your bellybutton and pubic hair in a horizontal oval or elliptical shape. The fascia, that overlies the abdominal muscles, will be tightened with permanent sutures.Your cosmetic surgeon can then reposition the skin around your umbilicus. Your bellybutton will be brought out through a tiny incision and sutured in its normal position. The incision from hip to hip above the pubic hair will be stitched along and will leave a scar that falls on the natural crease within the bathing suit line.

During the procedure you would be given an antibiotic to prevent infection.

The procedure typically takes about three hours.


Frequently Asked Questions

Most men and ladies make for good abdominoplasty candidates. You will be a perfect candidate for a Tummy Tuck if you:

  • Are in good physical health
  • Have excess loose skin with little-to-no fat
  • Are not obese
  • No longer plan to have children
  • Should not smoke, as nicotine interferes with the circulation of blood in the tissues after surgery and can increase the risk of complications substantially.
  • Women with loose skin and muscles from pregnancy often benefit from a tummy tuck. As pregnancy will stretch the abdominal skin.
  • Patients who are planning to become pregnant should consider postponing this procedure until they are done having children.
  • Patients who would intend to lose weight should do so before undergoing the procedure. If you have loosenweight after the procedure, there may be additional laxity of the skin.
