What is Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)?

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the abdominal area's appearance. It involves removing excess fat and skin and tightening the abdominal muscles to create a smoother and firmer look. This procedure is ideal for individuals who are looking to improve their abdomen following pregnancy, significant weight loss, aging, or genetic factors. Abdominoplasty can significantly boost confidence by offering a more contoured abdomen.

Who is suitable for Abdominoplasty?

While considering whether you are suitable or not for the abdominoplasty procedure, we need to consider these factors:

  1. Patients need to be close to the ideal body weight.
  2. Candidates should be in good physical health to minimize the risk of surgery and anesthesia.
  3. Since future pregnancies can reverse the effects of the Abdominoplasty, candidates should not plan to have children in the near future.
  4. A good candidate must have realistic expectations about the results.
  5. Emotional readiness and a positive outlook are important for a successful outcome.
  6. Ideal candidates have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area that does not improve with diet and exercise.
  7. Patients need to have weakened and separated abdominal muscles.

The key point is to check every patient's unique needs, to decide whether they are suitable or not.

Which problems can be solved with Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty, a transformative cosmetic surgery, effectively addresses multiple concerns related to the abdominal region:

  • Flattens the Abdomen
  • Tightens Abdominal Muscles
  • Improves Body Posture
  • Boosts Self-Confidence

Important information!

  • Ensure your surgeon is board-certified in plastic surgery and has extensive experience with abdominoplasty procedures.
  • Undergo a thorough medical evaluation to ensure you're fit for surgery. This may include lab tests and a pre-surgical physical examination.
  • Smoking can significantly impair healing and increase the risk of complications. Quit smoking at least 4-6 weeks before and after surgery.
  • Achieve and maintain a stable weight before surgery. Significant weight fluctuations can affect the results.
  • Eat a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals to support healing.

Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with your doctor to discuss your goals, outcomes. After agreeing on the details, our medical staff schedule your operation day.

  • Before the surgery, your surgeon will mark your abdomen while you are in a standing position.
  • The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, ensuring the patient is asleep and pain-free throughout the surgery.
  • The surgeon makes a horizontal incision above the pubic hairline, extending from hip to hip. The length and shape of the incision can vary based on the amount of excess skin and the specific goals of the surgery.
  • The skin and fat are lifted away from the abdominal muscles up to the ribs, allowing the removal of excess fat and skin.
  • If the patient has weakened or separated abdominal muscles, the surgeon will stitch the muscles together, creating a firmer abdominal wall and narrowing the waistline.
  • If a second incision around the navel was made, the surgeon will cut out a hole in the redraped skin and stitch the navel into place, to maintain a natural-looking belly button position.
  • The remaining skin is stretched down to the pubic area, and the excess skin is trimmed away. The sutures may be internal, dissolving over time, or external, requiring removal during a follow-up visit.
  • After the incisions are closed, the surgeon will cover the area with dressings or bandages, and drains may also be temporarily placed under the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid that might collect.

However it's crucial to follow post-operative care instructions provided by the surgeon to ensure optimal healing and results.

Adhering to the specific guidelines provided by your surgeon is crucial in order to prevent any complications and ensure successful results.

  • Use the prescribed pain medications as directed by your surgeon to manage the pain and discomfort in the days following the surgery.
  • Sleeping in a slightly bent position, such as in a recliner or with pillows propping you up, can help reduce tension on the incision, decrease swelling, and make sleeping more comfortable during the initial recovery phase.
  • Walk in a slightly forward leaning position in the first couple of days, to avoid opening the wounds.
  • A compression garment helps reduce swelling, supports the abdominal area, and helps the skin conform to the new body contours. Wear it as directed by your surgeon, usually for several weeks.
  • Focus on eating foods rich in vitamins and minerals, especially those that promote wound healing, such as proteins, vitamin C, and zinc. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  • Avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and exercise until your surgeon gives you the green light.
  • Follow your surgeon's advice on bathing and showering. Keeping the incision area clean and dry is essential for preventing infection.

Following your surgeon's post-operative instructions is really important for having the best results.
