Tummy Tuck

Service Description

This procedure is indicated in patients with excess abdominal fat and sagging It is practiced commonly in women who have given birth, as pregnancy stretches skin and abdominal muscles, likewise in men and women by genetic condition or for overfeeding which has accumulated excessive fat in this region.

Abdominoplasty usually begins with liposuction to remove excess fat from the abdomen and finally removes excess skin, and muscle tissue is modified to get a round and better modeling of the waist. In most cases the navel can be reshaped for aesthetic purposes.

Are you a good candidate for a tummy tuck?

There comes a time when you realize that efforts at dieting and exercise are yielding lower numbers on your bathroom scale but not changing the appearance of your sagging and protruding abdomen. The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider a tummy tuck:

  • Aging, heredity, pregnancy, prior surgery or weight fluctuations have left you with extra skin on your abdomen, abdominal muscle weakness, or both.
  • You do not smoke. Smoking slows down the healing process and increases the risk of serious complications during and after surgery. If you smoke, you must quit at least six weeks before surgery.
  • Your weight is stable. Slender individuals with extra fat and loose skin in the lower tummy are the best candidates; if you are generally obese, this procedure is not appropriate for you.
  • If you have a significant amount of intra-abdominal fat surrounding your internal organs, you may need to slim down before considering a tummy tuck.
  • You are physically healthy. You must be in relatively good physical shape to tolerate this procedure.
  • You are finished having children. The muscles that are repaired during an abdominoplasty can separate again during future pregnancy.
  • Internal or external scars from any previous abdominal surgery may also affect your candidacy.

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
