Abdominoplasty Tummy Tuck Explained
- Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery that helps get rid of excess skin and fat around the belly, tightening the abdominal muscles, thereby giving the belly a taut, firm look.
- You need to be in good general health to qualify for the procedure.
- If you have any plans for losing weight, then you can put tummy tuck on the back-burners.
- A tummy tuck is also not recommended in case you plan to have any future pregnancies.
- Tummy tucks are to be used as a last resort if diet control and exercising have failed to give you a lean, shredded belly.
- Post surgery, you will have to abstain from strenuous activities for at least six weeks.
- Tummy tucks are of two types:
- Complete abdominoplasty: This involves making a long incision running all the way from one hip bone to the other. The surgery will entail moving the belly button up.
- Mini abdominoplasty: It is suitable for people who have fatty pouches right below the navel. Unlike traditional tummy tucks, mini tummy tucks do not require moving the belly button.
