Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at enhancing abdominal contours by removing excess skin and fat while tightening the abdominal muscles. It's designed to achieve a firmer, more toned midsection, particularly beneficial for individuals with stretched or sagging abdominal tissue due to weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or aging.

The Procedure

During a tummy tuck, incisions are strategically placed to access the abdominal area. The surgeon removes excess skin and fat, tightens weakened abdominal muscles, and repositions the remaining tissues to create a smoother, more contoured appearance.

Operation Duration and Techniques

The duration of a tummy tuck varies based on the extent of correction required, ranging from 2 to 3 hours. Techniques may include a horizontal incision above the pubic bone, allowing for excess skin removal and muscle tightening. Mini-abdominoplasty techniques involve smaller incisions and focus on limited skin and muscle adjustment. The tummy tuck is usually combined with liposuction.

Recovery and Follow-up

Post-surgery, patients can expect temporary discomfort, swelling, and bruising, managed with prescribed medications. A compression garment is typically worn to support the healing tissues. Most individuals can resume light activities within a few weeks. Adhering to post-operative care instructions and attending follow-up appointments are crucial for optimal healing and results.
