Unraveling Tummy Tuck Surgery

Stomach tuck is a procedure aimed at removing excess fat and skin. In some cases, the procedure can also be used to separate or rebuild weak muscles. The end result of the procedure is a smoother and smoother stomach profile.

How the procedure is done

This procedure is performed by a qualified surgeon. In traditional abdominal tucks, horizontal slits are usually made on the lower abdomen; right above the female's natural hair line.

The length of the cut is usually determined by the amount of skin you have and the more skin you have, the larger the size of the cut needed to be.

After the incision is made, the skin is then opened to the rib cage and the muscles tightened. The belly button is then reposted and the excess skin removed.

In some cases, you may find that loose skin extends backward. Here the piece should be extended to the back.

To ensure that you do not feel pain, the procedure is usually performed under anesthesia. The good side is that the procedure only takes a short time to complete; about 2-3 hours.

The surgeon watches you for a while after the procedure and after confirming that you are in stable condition, he lets you go home.

Since it is common for fluids to go out according to procedure, you are provided with tools to assist in their removal. In the event of complications after the procedure, you should return to the hospital and resolve the problem.

Types of abdominoplasty

Depending on your condition, there are different types of surgery that can be performed on you. The different types of surgery include:

Complete abdominoplasty: This type of procedure involves the incision on the genital hair (to remove excess skin) and tightening of the rectum abdominis. If you have a lot of fat, liposuction can be done at the same time as surgery.

Partial abdominoplasty: a procedure performed in patients with simple abdominal contour changes. This procedure is also common in those who have slight skin or minor weakness in their abdominal wall. Here, navel incision is avoided. In rare cases, liposuction can be done at the same time as the procedure.

Abdominoplasty covers: This procedure is performed when you have significant excess fat in the abdomen and in the back. The main benefit of this procedure is that it helps in removing skin and fat in the hips and back areas resulting in a three-dimensional body contour.

Risk involved

Abdominoplasty is an invasive procedure that comes with some risks. Common risks include: scary scarring, infections, blood clots, weak wound healing, heart and lung complications, excessive bleeding, among others.

Although, these risks are similar to the procedure, you should note that the surgeon you hire plays an important role in reducing the risk. This means that if you want to reduce your risk, you need to hire a high quality surgeon.
