Why tummy tuck?

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is labeled as a cosmetic surgery performed in order to flatten the abdomen by removing the excess fat tissue and skin. As the definition of the procedure states it is intended for those with loose abdomen skin that may emerge after intense weight loss or childbearing. Concentration of fat tissue in the abdomen area and the abdomen of abnormal proportions compared to remaining body are considered to be the indications for the procedure. Besides, it is also used to correct the separation of abdomen muscles (diastasis recti) which is a common consequence of pregnancy.

Possible restrictions

On the other hand, the procedure is not recommended for those women who consider having a child in the future. The reason lies in the technical part of the surgery during which abdomen muscles are tightened by sewing them. As it was mentioned, during pregnancy they tend to move one from other in order to make more space for a child. This process will be blocked if tummy tuck was performed before. By the way, procedure is not suitable for patients who are planning on losing weight or are displeased by surgical scars.

About tummy tuck surgery

After all preparations a tummy tuck procedure will be performed. Since the general anesthesia is applied the surgeon will make an incision which will take the place in the pubic area or a little bit higher. Note, that before the procedure the doctor will show you where exactly the incision will be and what variations could be depending on your underwear style. This will make you more comfortable because you will be guaranteed that the scar will not be exposed. Later the incision has to be expanded toward sides of your pelvic bones. In the cases where loose skin is around the navel the second incision is performed in order to maintain the position of latter structure. Then excessive tissues are removed and the margins tightened up by sewing one to each other.

Types of tummy tuck

There are two types of procedure which mainly differ in whether the navel will be removed or not. During the complete abdominoplasty excessive masses are distributed throughout all abdomen area, huge amount of tissue is removed and in order to preserve the position of navel the skin around the structure is cut to make.
