Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty is a popular procedure to improve the shape of your tummy. Women after childbirth do tend to gather lot of lax tissue and skin on the belly area. The skin loses its luster, develops varying grade of stretch marks and becomes wrinkled and lax. This is very common if the baby is large one. This transformation wrecks the dressing styles and clothing choice for many women. The unsightly bulges and stretch marks make skin exposure unpleasant. The shape is no more the same and women have a very strong desire to go back to their pre pregnancy look. This demand is progressively getting more as many mothers go back to very active social life and demanding work situations. A high level of self esteem and good physical bearing contributes to their feeling good, and plastic surgery can give them this strength. Also called "tummy tuck" it is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen more flat, taut and firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is usually sought by patients with loose tissues after pregnancy or individuals with sagging after major weight loss.

Complete Abdominoplasty

A complete (or full) abdominoplasty involves:

  • An incision is made from hip to hip just above the pubic area.
  • Another incision is made to free the navel from the surrounding skin.
  • The skin is detached from the abdominal wall to reveal the muscles and fascia to be tightened. The muscle fascia wall is tightened with sutures.
  • The remaining skin and fat are tightened by removing the excess and closing the defect.
  • The old belly button stalk is brought out through a new hole and sutured into place.
  • Liposuction is often used to refine the transition zones of the abdominal sculpture.
  • A dressing and sometimes a compression garment are applied and any excess fluid from the site is drained.
