Our hectic and unhealthy lifestyles result in unwanted abdominal bulges. Eating junk food and no exercise is resulting in abdominal fat equally in both men and women. Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a plastic surgery treatment which can help you in significant reduction of belly fat if exercise and diet aren’t showing any results.
The process involves excision of excess underlying fat and skin surface to define the contours of your abdomen. Abdominoplasty is mostly preferred by women after childbirth as it leaves the abdomen loose and bulging. Abdominoplasty also strengthens the abdominal musculature which had become loose after the pregnancy. You can expect a flatter and firmer belly, desired waist contours and significant reduction in stretch marks.
The scars from the surgery will be hidden in the panty line. This is a quick surgical procedure performed by experienced female plastic surgeon and therefore, needs no admission in the hospital.
Tummy Tuck Treatment at Aestiva Clinic includes repositioning of the umbilicus and removal of excess skin as well as the fat tissues. Dr. Mrinalini Sharma suggests a mini-abdominoplasty in case where umbilicus doesn’t need to be re-positioned. And depending on the degree of laxity a total abdominoplasty can be suggested if umbilicus needs to be re-positioned/recreated.
Post surgery you’ll be advised to regularly wear a compression garment to retain the posture and control internal bleeding, for first few weeks and during this period no exercises should be done by the patient.
