What Is Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure in which excess skin and fat are removed from the lower abdomen and the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened. This procedure can drastically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen and reduce the waistline. This procedure is particularly helpful for women who, through multiple pregnancies, have stretched the abdomen so far that it does not return to its normal shape. Tummy tucks are also helpful for those who have lost a significant amount of weight, but still possess loose, sagging skin. At times, tummy tucks are performed in conjunction with liposuction. In some cases, where only a limited fat deposit in the lower abdomen is deforming its contour, a liposuction procedure will take care of this without a large incision. Click here to contact Dr.
Excess skin and fat from the abdomen are removed and the underlying abdominal muscles tightened. Often, the navel will need to be relocated. Incisions are generally made along the bikini line to minimise the visibility of scarring. This operation is performed using general anaesthetic. Numbness and sensations of uncomfortable tightness are common and may continue for some months after surgery. Complications include infection and the formation of fluid pockets. What is Breast enlargement (augmentation mammaplasty) ? Enlarging the breasts requires the insertion of saline or silicone implants. An incision is made under the breast or armpit and the implant is pushed through. It may be positioned either behind or in front of the chest pectoral muscle. There will be bruising and swelling for a few weeks. Complications include the formation of hard scar tissue around the implant, deflation of the implant, and implants that move out of position.
The tummy tuck is designed reshape the abdomen by removing excess fatty tissue and loose sagging skin, and tighten the abdominal muscles. The result is a smoother, flatter, more youthful abdominal profile. The incision is placed within or just above the pubic area and is hidden within your swimsuit lines.
