What is Tummy Tuck?
Tummy Tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or amputated muscles, resulting in a smoother, firmer abdominal profile. A flat and firm stomach is what many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. These methods may not reach your goals. Even people with normal weight and proportions may have an abdomen that is loose and sagging. Tummy Tuck is a popular operation worldwide. However, our doctors are some of the most experienced ones who have long studied different techniques to improve it. Our surgeons use techniques to ensure that the new abdominal contours are as flat as possible, the waist is slim and hourglass-shaped, and the risk of complications is minimized.
Who is a good candidate for Tummy Tuck?
In general, you may be a good candidate for Tummy Tuck if you are physically healthy and at a stable weight. You should also have realistic expectations. If you are not happy with the appearance of your abdomen, then Tummy Tuck is the right option for you.
What to expect during the Tummy Tuck procedure?
During your consultation, our doctors will review with you the various options available for abdominal rejuvenation. In general, more extensive abdominal wall laxity, particularly in the upper abdomen, requires a full abdominoplasty. This traditional procedure usually requires an incision around the belly button and another incision across the lower abdomen, often extending hip to hip. To blend the contours, liposuction is usually recommended to the waist and abdomen during this surgery. After excess soft tissue is removed, the muscles are tightened or repaired, and the skin is re-draped and closed in a skilful manner.
Is Tummy Tuck surgery safe?
Surgical interventions are always associated with specific risks and side effects. When considering tummy tack, consulting an experienced plastic surgeon is often the best way to ensure safety during surgery. Our doctors discuss the strengths and weaknesses of abdominoplasty, including potential risks. Possible complications include seroma, bleeding, poor wound healing, scarring, numbness, swelling, and / or pain. Patient safety is our number one priority and our doctors recommend abdominoplasty only if it is the best option for you.
