If your abdomen area looks flabby or has a deposition of excess skin or lipid and moreover your rigorous diet and workout regimen is unable to give you a flat tummy you may give the concept of ‘tummy tucking’ a thought. The process is also addressed as “Abdominoplasty” by the doctors.
The purpose of the surgery is to remove the extra fat and skin from the abdominal area thus tightening the muscles making the tummy look flat.
It’s not the same as liposuction, although you may choose to get liposuction along with a tummy tuck.
This surgical procedure is a big deal to try so proper information and precaution is needed for the patient who is considering going for “Tummy tucking.”
Who Are the Best Candidates For a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is suitable for men and women who are in good health.
The surgery is very effective for women who got a flabby stomach after pregnancies. In the process the excess skin is reduced thus the abdominal muscles get tightened and firmed.
A tummy tuck is also an option for men or women who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly.
Who Should Not Consider a Tummy Tuck?
Women who going to give birth in near future should not even think of Tummy Tucking surgery until you delivered your baby. Because, during surgery, your vertical muscles are tightened, and future pregnancies can separate those muscles.
Are you planning to lose a lot of weight? Losing weight is a good thought but if you want to lose a significant amount of fat from your abdomen then also Tummy Tucking is not advisable in the initial stage. A tummy tucking is the last option remaining after you tried every bit of ways like exercising and dieting, to shed those fats from your stomach.
You must also consider a doctor before surgery about the post-surgical visual impact of the scars and its length and placement.
How to Prepare for Tummy Tuck Surgery?
The first step is to choose a surgeon and see him or her for a consultation. At that meeting, you’ll talk about your goals and the following options: Complete abdominoplasty. During the surgical procedure, a surgeon will cut your abdomen from hipbone to hipbone and thereafter will start the contouring of skin, tissue, and muscle.
