There are many reasons why an individual may want to choose abdominoplasty as their method of choice when it comes to tightening up their stomachs. The following are just a few:
- To help improve self-confidence. There are so many people out there who have bellies that hang over their waistlines, that they actually feel embarrassed about having them. By getting this procedure done, you can rid yourself of that embarrassment once and for all.
- To get rid of stretch marks.
Then you remove sagging and excess skin and fat on the abdomen (middle and lower region) and tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall, after which the skin is sewn together.
There are some risks associated with this procedure which include bleeding, bruising, infection and poor healing which may cause scars to become prominent.
Abdominal plastic surgery is best performed when there is excessive fat in this region that cannot be removed with diet or exercise alone. This is known as liposuction. Abdominal plastic surgery is also recommended for those who have lost an excessive amount of weight, usually due to dieting or gastric bypass surgery and desire to have excess skin removed in order to look slimmer and more fit.
When it comes to choosing your doctor for abdominal plastic surgery, be sure to choose one thoroughly experienced in performing multiple types of belly tuck operations. Not all abdomens are created equal; some are just more difficult than others in their current state. There are no guarantees that all abdominal plastic surgery operations will be 100% successful for 100% of patients
The goal of tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, is to restore a firmer, flatter abdominal contour by removing excess fatty tissue and skin, and by tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall.
The procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall is called tummy tuck or abdominoplasty. It can be performed at any age but is more commonly done after pregnancy and weight loss.
The surgery itself lasts about 1,5 hours depending on the extent of surgery necessary but you should plan on a stay in hospital for 2 to 3 days. During this period you will be given oral pain medication. Most patients return to work within 10 to 14 days
Afterwards you must wear an abdominal binder garment for 6 weeks while your body heals. If you have had a large amount of skin removed then you may need drains placed under the skin which are normally removed after 5-7 days while stitches are removed after 2 weeks.
If you have had muscle tightening only or a mini tummy tuck then it is possible that your recovery time will be much faster since no skin was removed. You may need to wait until swelling has gone down before your final result becomes obvious.
In the procedure, called a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, the surgeon makes an incision just above the pubic area. A second incision is made to free the navel from the surrounding tissue. The skin is then detached from the abdominal wall to expose the muscles and connective tissue. The surgeon tightens these muscles by pulling them close together and stitching them into place with sutures. The skin is then stretched down and the excess is removed. A new hole is cut for the navel, which is then stitched into place.
A full tummy tuck involves extending the incision around to your backside, so that loose skin on your flanks can be removed as well. This will leave you with a long scar that runs across your lower abdomen. Many women opt for a mini-tummy tuck or a modified version of this procedure instead, since it requires a shorter incision in the bikini line and spares you any scarring on your backside. This second approach isn’t appropriate for all patients though, as it won’t tighten muscles that run horizontally across your belly (a common problem after pregnancy).
