Dr. Hickman discusses Tummy Tuck surgery



Our skin is a surprisingly flexible organ. When we grow, lose or gain weight, build muscle or become pregnant, in most cases it simply adapts to the circumstances. But sometimes that doesn’t work. Especially if the waist size is shrinking very quickly. After significant weight loss or pregnancy, the stomach is suddenly much flatter. However, the overstretched connective tissue and often also the underlying muscles cannot or only slightly recede and adapt to the new figure.

In this case, a tummy tuck can make sense and help you feel better about yourself and have more self-confidence: the skin is tightened and excess tissue is removed. Depending on the initial situation, the procedure can also be combined with liposuction (lipoabdominoplasty) or tightening of the abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck can also be used to remove fat deposits that the patient was unable to fight successfully despite exercising or dieting.

A tummy tuck (also known as a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty) is a common and major operation that requires optimal planning, precise surgery, and careful aftercare. Therefore, you should only have such an operation performed by experienced, competent experts in aesthetic plastic surgery.

Requirements for an abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty is not always useful or possible. In order to have a tummy tuck, you should be in good health and able to maintain your weight. If you want a comprehensive weight loss or want to have children as a woman, you should therefore only have the tummy tuck performed afterwards.

Even if it’s only been a few months since you lost weight or became pregnant, your skin may shrink back on its own. If your condition has not changed after a period of time and conventional measures, surgical removal of the excess skin may be a good treatment option for you.

Methods of tummy tuck

A tightening of the abdominal wall ranges from a small operation (just below the navel) to a very extensive operation in which the hip is tightened from hip to hip. In the case of an abdominoplasty, not only does the actual operation have to be carried out very carefully, planning is also extremely important in order to achieve the best possible result. For a beautifully shaped waist, it may be necessary for fat to be removed from the sides or hips in order to achieve a harmonious overall appearance. If liposuction is necessary, it can also be combined with breast augmentation using autologous fat if desired.

Then trust a competent specialist who can assess how much tightening should be done in order to achieve a well-formed stomach. The focus should also be on the natural, unobtrusive design of the new belly button.

Major tummy tuck

A major tummy tuck tightens the skin in both the lower and middle areas of the abdomen. To do this, the surgeon first makes a semicircular incision in the bikini area from one hip bone to the other. Since the navel usually also has to be moved, a small circular incision is also necessary in this area. In the case of major surgeries, an incision perpendicular from the navel downwards may also be necessary in rare cases. The operation is performed under general anesthesia.

The excess, loose skin is removed by the surgeon, and the abdominal skin is tightened towards the pubic bone. It is important to include the hips to give you a beautiful silhouette. Excess fatty tissue can also be removed in this step. It is also possible to tighten the vertical abdominal muscles during the procedure. It is often permanently slack after pregnancy or extreme weight loss and cannot be brought back to its original shape even with a lot of sport.

The surgeon then puts the navel back in the correct position and carefully sews it up and the abdominal skin on the pubic bone. A scar from the tummy tuck will remain here. However, this cannot be seen when you show off your new figure in a bikini.
