Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

     An abdominoplasty is suited towards those who can’t lose weight by diet and exercise alone and/or who have saggy skin and would like a permanent solution. With high patient satisfaction, it is preferred by men & women who’d like to improve their physical appearance and gain more self-confidence. It’s also suitable for those who suffer from stretch marks on the abdomen or weak abdominal muscles because of giving birth or losing excess weight quickly.

-If you can’t lose the stubborn fat on your abdomen,

-If you’re not happy with how your abdomen looks after giving birth,

-If you lose and gain weight quickly, resulting in permanent fat storage on the abdomen,

-If you desire to have a tighter abdomen, get rid of your love handles, and acquire the so desired hourglass figure, an abdominoplasty is what you need.  

 

How Is An Abdominoplasty Performed?

     The excess fat and skin in the abdomen are removed, stretch marks on the belly are minimised and abdominal muscles are tightened and strengthened. The abdomen and the belly are reshaped; while the abdominal muscles get tightened, the waist size is also reduced. It is recommended to perform a liposuction in addition to an abdominoplasty with patients whose skin is very thick or who have too much excess fat. First, the skin gets tightened and excess fat is removed with a liposuction and then an abdominoplasty is performed. In cases where the belly button gets deformed, a new one is reconstructed. This is done purely for cosmetic reasons. The operation may last 1-5 hours, depending on the operated areas and the amount of fat removed. You will be informed by the surgeon during a consultation before the procedure.

 

Will There Be A Permanent Scar After The Procedure?

     There will be virtually no scars visible after an abdominoplasty. The sutures will remain invisible under your underwear. The sutures and the scars will not be visible when you wear a bikini or an underwear. There won’t be any visible signs that you’ve undergone an abdominoplasty procedure.

     Patients may be afraid of ending up with a long incision scar and may desire a smaller incision to be made. Acquiring an attractive body is the reason why this procedure is performed. This is accomplished with a physically appealing belly button and a slimmer waist. If the obliques are also operated upon after having reconstructed the belly button, excess fat and skin around that area are also removed. The curve of the waist looks more natural and attractive and we end up with better results. 

 

How Long Does It Take To Recover?

     Patients have to be hospitalized the night of the surgery. In about 10 days, the bruises will disappear and you may return to your daily life. The sutures made during the surgery  are under the skin and will dissolve over time. For this reason patients must walk bending over for the first couple of days so as not to damage the sutures. You may begin to walk normally after 3-4 days. It is advisable to use a compression corset for 2 months after the procedure to reduce swelling and to further slim the body. The results will be seen immediately after the surgery.  You may start light walking or jogging a month after the procedure. Heavy physical activity and weightlifting may be started 2 months after the procedure.

There are some cases where performing an abdominoplasty  may be delayed, such as with:

-People who intend to lose weight,

-Women who will give birth shortly after the procedure,

-Lactating mothers, because of the drugs that will be given during or after the surgery,

     An abdominoplasty is not a solution for obesity. People who wish to undergo an abdominoplasty sugery should first consult our surgeon and see if they qualify for an abdominoplasty.

Which Surgeries Could Be Done In Conjunction With An Abdominoplasty?

     A rhinoplasty, breast surgeries, an arm lift and a brazilian butt lift could be performed during the same procedure.
