Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall.This procedure is commonly done in conjunction with liposuction of the waist and back for better results.
The abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a low risk procedure due to the muscles, entrails, nerves or vessel are not involved only fat and wall abdominal skin. The only inconvenient is the scar in the pubis level, however it can be hide with the underwear. The scar size depends of how damaged and flaccid the skin is.
Who are the best candidates for an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)?
A tummy tuck is suitable for both men and women who are in good general health overall and are at a stable weight. It is best to be a non-smoker.
A tummy tuck should not be confused with a liposuction (the cosmetic surgery used to remove fat deposits), although your surgeon may choose to perform liposuction as part of a tummy tuck. Women who have muscles and skin stretched after several pregnancies may find the procedure useful to tighten those muscles and reduce that skin. A tummy tuck is also an alternative for men or women who were obese at one point in their lives, and still have excessive fat deposits or loose skin in the abdominal area.
