Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure where excess fat present in the middle and lower abdominal region and the dorsal skin tissue are removed while the abdominal muscles are tightened.

Tummy tuck surgery helps achieve an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. The operation can be seen as a solution when exercise and weight control don’t have an effect on a loose and saggy abdomen.

Cracked, deformed and saggy tissue is removed while healthy tissue is stretched down helping renew the abdominal skin. Additionally loose frontal abdominal muscle structure gets tightened helping achieve a fit and tight abdomen.

As in all operations, you should stop smoking, taking blood diluent medications, herbal and vitamin supplements one week prior to the operation. If you’re taking birth control medication this should be stopped 20 days prior to the operation.

Leading a balanced life with proper diet and exercise after the operation will help maximise the benefits of the operation.

One of the biggest problems, especially after pregnancy, is the cracks in the abdominal area. While there are many treatments applied (like laser therapy) that are related to these cracks, these have limited success rate.

It would be fair to say that the most effective method of getting rid of the cracks in the abdominal region is abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).
