The accumulation of excess flab or skin on your belly causes obesity in people. And if, by chance, it doesn’t get corrected by exercise or diet, you may be advised by the doctors to go for “Abdominoplasty “or tummy tuck treatment. In this treatment, all the extra fat and skin is removed from your abdomen and muscles of your abdominal wall are tightened.
Liposuction is an altogether different concept; however, you can choose to get it done along with tummy tuck. This surgery is recommended to those men and women having good health. It is beneficial for the ladies who’ve had many pregnancies as it will tighten their abdominal muscles and reduce skin. Before undergoing a surgery, always talk to your doctor about all the possible options. There are two ways of doing this treatment:
- Full abdominoplasty- Incision will be made in your abdomen from hipbone to hipbone and then contouring of your skin, muscles and tissues will be done as per requirement. The skin will be removed from above the navel to the pubic area.
- Mini or partial abdominoplasty- This is done generally on people having fat deposits below the navel. This may not require moving of your belly button, and the whole process may take around 2 hours to be done, depending upon individual state.
If you are in a habit of smoking, you’ll have to quit it at least 2 weeks before the surgery till 2 weeks after the treatment. Eat healthy and balanced food. It speeds up the healing process. Pain and swelling might be a possible complication post surgery. Numbness, tiredness or bruising may also be experienced by some. This treatment will leave scars and doctors will suggest certain ointments or creams that may help in fading up of those scars. Proper diet and exercise will help in maintaining results.
