Abdominoplasty- Tummy Tuck: Types And Surgical Plans

Are you just on the verge of giving up and nothing worked the way you had assumed? Be it dieting or the rigorous exercise, but nothing could help you to reach the aim of a waistline size that you desired, the role of tummy tuck comes in for achieving a well-toned and flat abdomen sans all the hanging fatty skin.

The muscle present in the abdominal wall is tightened with the muscles, allowing to reduce and flatten the abdomen region removing excess skin and fat from within. As it is a major surgery, the patient must be well educated about the process and outcomes along with all the negatives of the surgical procedures.

This must be kept in mind that it is the last resort for the people who have tried and failed and exhausted all the other measures, but it shouldn’t ever be taken as an alternative means for the weight loss.

How Is This Process Done?

This surgery usually takes 1-5 hours to complete. The complexity of the situation is determined from beforehand and is undertaken either as an in- patient or out- patient procedure depending on the amount of area targeted.

It will take place with general anesthesia and you will be put to sleep during the process. And it is really important that you may require someone to drive and take her home along with taking you care for a couple of weeks. There are number of tummy tuck procedures, which are as follows:

  • Complete Abdominoplasty

The patients who require the most correction prefer this. Not only this incision is made low in the abdomen, but usually extends upto the hip bone.  The surgeon is free to manipulate the contour of the muscle and the skin required and you shall have another incision around the surrounding tissue and belly button, through which the drainage tubes are inserted to apply a sufficient amount of fluids in the body.

  • Mini Abdominoplasty

Mainly performed on those whose fat deposits are located below the navel areas and could be corrected with shorter incisions. The skin is to be separated from the line of incision and belly button and worked upon for a couple of hours.  There are usually no drainage tubes involved in the mini Abdominoplasty process as the hours of operation are lesser and the changes of getting dehydrated are also less.

  • Circumferential Abdominoplasty

This option includes the back region and is considered when there is excess fat in the abdomen area, for which you may either have liposuction on circumferential abdominoplasty or back region. Though the former procedure requires removing both the fat and skin from the hip and back region improving the body contours three dimensionally.
