One of the commonest areas that cosmetic surgeons work on is the tummy. Tummy tuck is an effective cosmetic surgical procedure done to reshape and improve the muscular tone and appearance of the tummy. The basic concept of the procedure is to remove the loose skin and excess fat from a flabby abdomen. Tight sutures and proper repositioning of the remaining skin renders a well-toned look for the tummy after the procedure.

Often people opt for a tummy tuck if the stomach has sagging and loose tissue due to:

  • Aging
  • Familial conditions
  • Pregnancy-related stretching and weight gain.
  • Surgeries in the past and retracted scarring.
  • Drastic loss or gain in weight.

Things to remember before undergoing a tummy tuck procedure:

  • It is not a substitute for weight loss or instant quick fix for ideal weight.
  • Ladies planning for pregnancies in the future should refrain from it.
  • It will not help in the complete removal of stretch marks but some improvement can be brought about.
  • If you have any serious systemic condition like heart disease, diabetes or irritable bowel syndrome, your doctor will advise you against it.

Like any surgical procedure, a tummy tuck procedure has some associated risks:

  • Poor wound healing and scarring.
  • Sloughing of tissue.
  • Altered skin sensation
  • The risk of bleeding.

Often before opting to undergo abdominoplasty, the cosmetic surgeon will do a thorough review of medical history and a physical examination. An expert cosmetic surgeon will clarify your queries and discuss your expectations in detail.

The procedure

Oval shaped incisions are made in the region between your bellybutton and pubic hair. Most of the skin and fat tissues are removed. Skin is repositioned around the bellybutton and the incisions are stitched together.

The results of a tummy tuck are usually forever, provided you maintain a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle.
