The surgery that tucks in the stomach fat is called ‘Tummy Tuck’ or Abdominoplasty. This surgery flattens the abdomen by removing the excess fat and skin on the abdomen and tightens the abdominal muscles that enhance the shape and appearance of the abdomen by creating a more toned look of the remaining skin. Abdominoplasty is not the same as liposuction. Although in some cosmetic surgeries, you may choose Tummy Tuck surgery along with Liposuction.
There are several reasons for having extra weight or weakened tissues in the abdomen that needs abdomen reduction surgery including:
The Abdominoplasty can remove the excess fat and skin on the abdomen as well as tightens the weak abdominal muscles. It can also help to remove stretch marks in the lower abdomen under the belly.
For the patients who need more correction, this option is most suitable. The surgeon makes a cut at the bikini line and will then remove the fatty tissues and loosen the skin in the abdomen to make it flatter. The incision around the naval is made to free the skin from the tissues.
The risk and complications occur after Abdominoplasty if the patient continues to smoke or has heart, lung, or liver diseases. Risks of the surgery can include:
After Abdominoplasty usually you can able to stand after 1-2 weeks. Each patient has a different recovery time. Some may take longer than 3 weeks to completely stand straight.
To avoid constipation, add a high fiber diet both before and after surgery to make it easier for the bowels to empty.
For several days after Abdominoplasty, you will find it hard to take deeper breaths as things will be very much tight and you will also feel extreme pain with each breath.
After Abdominoplasty always be careful while coughing and sneezing. A violent sneeze can cause a surgical incision to open. Bracing your incision is essential when coughing, sneezing, or even going to the washroom.
Stitches can be popped easily after tummy tuck surgery and thus, doctors won't be allowing you to do any exercise, heavy lifting, or straining for weeks. If you had an abrupt move or your stitch has been torn you will most likely have sharp pain, bruising, and a bulge in the area.
Mild to moderate discomfort may be possible for a few days and can be managed with proper medications.
Tummy Tuck reconstructs the muscles underneath and remove excess skin, while Liposuction only removed excess fat and it will not reduce or remove loose, hanging, or excess skin.
