The Big Tummy Problem Area And Solution With Liposuction and Tummy Tuck

Plastic Surgery Options To Curb Belly Fat

There are two main procedures that attend the abdominal contouring purpose in plastic surgery—

  • Liposuction

This minimal invasive procedure is ideal for removing small deposits of fat from underneath skin folds. But it does not aid much in tightening skin.

The procedure is performed using a cannula that is inserted inside the skin and oscillated to break down fatty tissues and separate it from surrounding skin. Due to the soft tissue nature of the fat, it reacts faster to the oscillation, than the surrounding tissues, and turns into a liquid like melted butter. This liquid is then drained out of the body with an aspiration mechanism attached with the cannula.

The procedure is normally performed under local anaesthesia and on an outpatient basis. Large volume liposuction, is a more invasive form, which is performed under general anaesthesia on an inpatient basis.

  • Tummy Tuck

This is an invasive plastic surgery procedure ideal for contouring lax skin in the abdominal region. Liposuction is included and is only a part of this procedure, to assist for fat removal. The traditional procedure involves opening up the entire fascia of the abdomen including dethatching the umbilicus from the surrounding skin. The incision takes place just above the pubic region. Skin is excised from end of the skin flap, fat is removed with liposuction, and the abdominal wall muscles are tightened using permanent sutures. The skin flap is sutured back to the original incision line. A new cavity is created for the belly button since the original cavity displaces after the shortening of the fascia.

Further Subcategories To Liposuction And Tummy Tuck

There are further subcategories to the two main procedures, including extensive tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, belt lumpectomy, lower body lift and body sculpture. The difference between these interrelated procedures is mainly the extent of incision. Different regions, different surgeons term the procedures differently.

The Big Tummy Problem— Persistent Belly Fat Despite Dieting And Exercising

The entire torso region including abdomen, flanks and waist works as the focal point of a body contour. And the belly is the most common “problem area” that is prone to face sagging skin, or volume of stubborn fat. Many people have a tendency of putting on bulging fat in the abdomen among other regions. Physical changes like childbirth or massive weight loss often turns the skin laxity in the abdomen to be loose. The skin folds may develop envelops of subcutaneous fat.

A good walk and a religious workout regime is majorly sufficient for fitness and maintaining an ideal BMI rate, however, oftentimes dieting and exercising may be insufficient to maintain a figure, despite being ideal for maintaining ideal body weight.

Not everyone can own up to a high profile workout regime or are even are eligible to, to live up to the body contour of his or her dream. The saddest part is that even the desired body contour is achieved it does not stay and it is seemingly impossible to keep it that way. Therefore, the “problem” continues with people who associate a lot of their body image with their belly fat.

You Don’t Look Fat In That Dress, Curves Are Welcome

Slim and well contoured are two different things. You may not have a slim waist, but a flat abdomen, as well as smooth flanks is the realistic expectations to have from a waistline. It is not about fitting a dress size or the number in the weighing scale it is the lack or loss of a body contour, which is the problem. Women obsessing over their weight and dress sizes often misunderstand the fact, and hence are misunderstood as well and lied that they are not looking fat in that dress.
