Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the middle lower abdomen and to tighten muscles of the abdominal wall. Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) is not a surgical treatment for overweight individuals. Obese individuals should lose weight and be able to maintain their weight loss before undergoing Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery. Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) will give you a flat stomach and remove overhanging skin.

There are two main types of Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery. The first is known as the mini-abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck of the lower abdomen. The surgeon will make a small incision just above the pubic area, and remove the excess fat using liposuction. The lower abdominal muscles are tightened and the navel need not be repositioned. The second type is full-abdominoplasty, which is usually performed on those who have a lot of excess skin or loss of skin elasticity caused by severe stretch marks. The surgeon will remove the excess skin below the navel and tighten the abdominal muscles from the lower part of the breastbone down to the pubic area. The remaining skin is then pulled down. A new navel will be created for you, and the underpants will hide the scars.

You will be given a local anesthesia with IV sedation if you undergo an Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery, and the procedure should take 4-5 hours. If you undergo the Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery in the operating theatre, you will be given general anesthesia. After the Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery, you will need to sleep in a half sitting position, or on your side for the first 2 weeks. Your surgeon will remove the drain on the 3rd day during your follow-up consultation, and the stitches will be removed after a week. You also be given a course of antibiotics and painkillers for 3 days. You will feel normal again after 6 weeks. However you might experience some numbness and slow healing, and you might have thick scars if you are dark-skinned after the Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery.
