Abdominoplasty – Tummy Tuck
What is tummy tuck?
Abdominal retraction (or abdominoplasty) is a common term for a surgical procedure that corrects a swollen, sagging, or sagging abdomen. Treated areas may include the middle of your abdomen, or may extend to the entire area between your lower chest and pubic bone, as well as your hips and back.
Abdominal shaping can be accomplished through a variety of techniques. In cases where the cause lies in the accumulated fat in one place, only liposuction techniques can be used for abdominal plastic surgery. When excess fat is combined with sagging, sagging skin and other tissues, tummy tuck removes unwanted fat, sagging tissues and skin by cutting. Abdominal muscles, when relaxed or separated (a condition called diastasis), can also be corrected through the abdominal retraction procedure.
Abdominal retraction (abdominoplasty) is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program. Although the results of abdominal retraction are technically consistent, the positive result can be significantly reduced in cases of sudden changes in weight. Therefore, it is recommended that people who are planning drastic weight loss and women who are considering future pregnancies postpone the procedure until they realize their plans.
Harvesting is best applied to adults of all ages, who are in good health, who are close to the ideal weight for their body type and size, who are in relatively good physical shape, and who generally have good-toned muscles.
Suitable for the procedure are:
- Healthy people who do not suffer from medical symptoms that may interfere with treatment or increase the risk of surgery;
- People who have a positive attitude and have realistic goals for shaping their body.
In addition, previous abdominal surgeries may limit the potential outcome of the abdominal retraction procedure. In women who have had a caesarean section, existing scars can often be used or corrected when making new incisions.
Your procedure will be considered in the light of the specific situation of your case and may include:
- Excess, concentrated in one place fat in the abdominal area
- Loose and sagging skin in the abdomen
- Relaxed or split muscles in the abdominal area due to pregnancy, weight loss or aging
One or all of these conditions may be present and may be surgically improved by abdominal retraction (abdominoplasty). However, abdominal plastic surgery cannot erase stretch marks, although they can be partially removed or corrected if they have been in areas with excess skin that needs to be cut. In general, these are the areas that are below the navel.
Surgical removal of excess fat and skin can be combined with liposuction during abdominal retraction, but it is recommended to perform abdominoplasty and liposuction in two successive stages with a distance of at least 3 months from each other, and even better if they have passed 6 or more months. Abdominal retraction surgery has different options. The chosen technique depends on the degree of relaxation of the tissues and, accordingly, on the need to correct them in order to achieve a flatter and tighter abdomen. The length and pattern of the incision depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed, as well as the patient’s personal preferences and the plastic surgeon’s judgment.
Liposuction can be used in parallel with the retraction of the abdomen or to shape other parts of the body by removing excess fat accumulated in certain places. Other body shaping procedures may be performed alone or as part of a tummy tuck operation. However, in all patients, a combination of surgical interventions is appropriate. Your case will be considered independently.
