What is a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?

   One important part of a beautiful bikini body is a flat tummy; abdomen area is usually the first area to get effected from weight changes. Therefore, it is very open for deformities such as saggy skin, stretch marks, loosened muscles or ingrained fat deposits. Tummy tuck, or in medical terms abdominoplasty, is a procedure designed to remove the damage caused by major weight changes.

   A tummy tuck procedure starts with proper incisions; plastic surgeon removes the excessive skin and fat in your tummy area; abdomen muscles are restored and your remaining skin and belly button are repositioned for a balanced and aesthetic look. A flatter tummy and healthier abdomen are achieved at the end.

What can you achieve with abdominoplasty?

   Tummy tuck is a very highly demanded procedure all around the world due to its advantages. Beside a flatter tummy, it has other benefits as well.

   A tummy tuck surgery can be helpful to decrease the back pain and provide support for your posture. After the weight changes or pregnancy, abdomen muscles may get harmed and cause back pain. When the muscles are repaired, they can support the back area better; restored abdomen muscle support can reduce the back pain and improve the posture.

   In some cases, it is possible to repair abdominal hernia during a tummy tuck surgery; if you have a hernia situation that you know of and would like to get it repaired during your surgery, you should consult to your surgeon in your consultation process because some plastic surgeons may not practice hernia repair.

   Tummy tuck operation involves a significant amount of skin removal from your tummy area; this means most of your stretch marks are likely to be gone with the removed skin.

Am I a good candidate for tummy tuck?

   There are certain factors causing deformities in the abdomen area such as pregnancy, weight loss after a bariatric surgery or aging.

   Pregnancy may cause your tummy skin to sag and your abdominal muscles to get loose. With an abdominoplasty procedure, a flatter tummy and firmer muscles can be achieved after a pregnancy. The procedure gives permanent results but if the patient would like to have more children in the future, tummy would get back to its saggy and deformed state; therefore, it is highly recommended to be sure you are done with your childbirth process before you decide to have a tummy tuck. After giving a birth, patients should wait at least for 6 months for their body to heal adequately for an abdominoplasty operation.

   Bariatric surgeries are to help overweight people to lose a great amount of weight in a short time; this process almost always results with saggy skin in the tummy area. Therefore, tummy tuck procedures are also very popular among patients who had bariatric surgeries before, such as gastric sleeve or gastric bypass. The important point about abdominoplasty after a bariatric surgery is to wait until the losing weight process is completely done in order to obtain the most efficient results.
