Tummy Tuck

 

In today’s society of body consciousness, much greater attention is directed to the size and shape of our bodies than ever before.In an attempt therefore to control any bodily changes which may occur in this respect, we try to make use of exercise and diet to the best of our abilities. However certain areas of our body can become stubbornly resistant to any improvements.

In some individuals the localised deposits of fat in the abdominal region combined with muscle laxity can make any hopes of a “flat tummy” very difficult to achieve. In women this becomes all the more difficult if stretched and loose skin appears following pregnancy. The children are, of course, worth every inconvenience. Nonetheless this does not stop us from thinking whether or not anything can be done to improve this.

Alternatively there are individuals who may have lost a large amount of weight and subsequently find as a result that they have an “apron” of skin which hangs down in front of the abdomen. This occasionally can lead to problems of chafing and rashes appearing under this “apron”.

Surgical procedures can selectively be employed to improve situations in which these problems arise. These operations however are not directed toward weight reduction, which is still primarily a dietary problem. In cases where improvements can’t be made despite even the most diligent efforts, an abdominoplasty may be appropriate.Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” as it is commonly known is an operation to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall and to remove excess skin folds and fatty tissues from the middle and lower abdominal region.

There are a number of variations in techniques with this surgery. As such it can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen and lead to a flatter, firmer, tighter stomach and when liposuction is combined with this procedure, a thinner waistline can be achieved also. When abdominoplasty is combined with liposuction we call it lipoabdominoplasty.

Many times however the problem is basically confined to only localised fat in the abdominal region without any associated skin laxity or stretch marks. In these cases liposuction alone may be suitable. Other times, as mentioned liposuction can be performed in conjunction with one of the many variations of an abdominoplasty procedure.
