Why a tummy tuck is so cool

A tummy tuck is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures in the world, second only to breast augmentation and rhinoplasty. Such an operation, also known as abdominoplasty, is a procedure that drains excess fat from the abdomen, thus eliminating annoying and unattractive “muffins.”

Following your liposuction procedure, excess skin is carefully and meticulously removed before the surgeon proceeds to tighten the loose abdominal muscle and fascia through the use of sutures. The result: a new slimmer, leaner, fitter and more attractive you!

Who benefits most from abdominoplasty?

Most patients seeking the operation are mothers who have recently given birth, are obese, and those who have just lost a large amount of weight. Others are those with flaccid skin and stretch marks.

Before you approach a surgeon about performing the procedure, make sure they are accredited by an officially recognized body, such as the Australian Medical Council and the Australian Health Professionals Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

The different types of tummy tucks

Depending on your surgeon’s advice and the extent to which you want the surgery to take place, you can undergo different levels of the operation.

A complete operation involves extensive fat removal and skin removal, as well as muscle tightening, which is usually done if you have a very loose abdomen.

The first step is to create an incision just above the pelvis and below the belly button from hip to hip. The surgeon carefully frees the stalk of the belly button from the surrounding muscle and tissue, then removes the skin to reveal the underlying muscle.

After tightening the muscles by applying sutures, the doctor drains the fat around the abdominal muscles to achieve a more contoured body. After completing the surgery and sewing up the incisions, the surgeon may prescribe the use of a compression garment around the abdomen until the muscles are healed enough to work independently.

While similar to the full procedure, other, more minor procedures called “mini tummy tucks” are performed on a smaller scale. These options do not involve as much muscle tightening or liposuction.

Benefits of the operation

Abdominoplasties transform large patients with persistent body problems into attractive and healthy images of physical fitness itself.

A slimmer aesthetic physics

It is a highly sought after procedure by obese patients who cannot exercise or diet. The immediate and drastic change that surgery achieves is enough to inspire you to vow to keep that new body afterward.

Improved Body Posture

Tightening of the fascia and abdominal muscles is not just a vain procedure. In fact, it results in tangible anatomical improvements. Corrects posture defects that affect a large part of the population, which translates into a rounded back to compensate for the weakness of the core muscles. The improved posture also resolves your back pain as a side effect.

What about the cons?

The tummy tuck procedure can leave some scarring on the abdomen. When viewed critically, this is only a small price to pay for the body that will be bestowed upon them.
