A taut, flat tummy always looks very beautiful and aesthetically pleasing. But sometimes after pregnancy or rapid weight loss, the skin cannot completely contract and sag in the form of an “apron” and striae (stretch marks) are formed. Very often, even in slender people, the stomach is a “problem” place, which neither diet nor exercise helps to get rid of. A circular abdominal tightening procedure called abdominoplasty can solve this problem. Its essence is to remove excess body fat and excess stretched skin.
An apron, which is formed after a person has dramatically lost weight, can spoil the whole result that was achieved by such work. Unfortunately, no exercise in the world can help get rid of drooping skin, but there is a way out – this is abdominoplasty. It will help in the shortest possible time to get rid of excess skin, which causes irritation and discomfort.
Abdominoplasty is an aesthetic operation to remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen and tighten the abdominal muscles, which allows you to get a flat stomach, remove a sagging stomach, and improve the stomach after childbirth.
The reasons for the appearance of these changes are associated with genetic characteristics, pregnancy, childbirth, and overweight. The abdomen after childbirth and stretching after childbirth are the results of overstretching of not only the skin, but also of the muscles (when abdominoplasty is performed, the muscular skeleton is strengthened and the waist is reduced), the abdomen becomes too convex even without pronounced subcutaneous fat. In addition, predisposing factors are hormonal and metabolic disorders, due to a significant accumulation of fatty tissue in the abdomen, and alimentary obesity associated with malnutrition. Deformation of the abdomen, expressed by the formation of excess skin or adipose tissue, cannot be corrected either by physical exertion or by diets.
In cases of postpartum deformation, when not only the skin but also the muscles are stretched, the surgeon not only removes excess skin, but also restores the abdominal muscle pressure, which can significantly reduce the size of the waist.During the operation to reduce the abdomen, a transfer and plastic of the navel usually occur. If necessary, abdominoplasty is supplemented by liposuction of the sides, back and other parts of the body.
Preparation before surgery:
Before the operation, you must pass the necessary laboratory tests. It is also advisable to take vitamins before the operation, eat fully, eating enough meat, fruits and vegetables. Smoking is an unfavorable factor for healing after abdominoplasty; therefore, smokers are recommended to quit smoking at least two weeks before the operation on tummy tuck and do not smoke for at least two weeks after.
Stages of the operation:
Tummy tuck in India is usually performed under general anesthesia. The incision runs along the bikini line – runs transversely in the lower abdomen above the bosom. The scar eventually turns into a thin line, which hides under the underwear or swimsuit.
Surgery to reduce the abdomen includes detachment and subsequent excision of the skin and subcutaneous tissue of the abdomen. In cases of postpartum deformation, when not only the skin but also the muscles are stretched, the surgeon not only removes excess skin, but also restores the abdominal muscle pressure, which can significantly reduce the size of the waist. During the operation to reduce the abdomen, a transfer and plastic of the navel usually occur. If necessary, abdominoplasty is supplemented by liposuction of the sides, back and other parts of the body. A distinctive result of such an operation is the achievement of a lasting effect, minimal postoperative suture and a flat stomach.
