TUMMY TUCK AND LIPOABDOMINOPLASTY OVERVIEW
Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a procedure which helps you to get rid of excess fat as well as laxity of the skin around the tummy area caused due to excessive weight loss, pregnancy, abdominal operations, or congenital spine abnormalities etc. Even individuals having otherwise normal body proportions develop a protruding, loose or sagging abdomen. A lax abdomen or a pendulous fold of skin is generally observed in women after pregnancy in the infra-umbilical area, where the skin has been stretched, there are stretch marks, they could have a caesarian scar in the lower abdomen. The skin becomes inelastic and forms a pendulous fold or causes a bulge in the front. This inelastic skin will not shrink by any means non-surgical. Abdominoplasty surgery helps you get rid of the loose skin and tighten the abdomen muscles. You will be left with a low caesarian scar which fades over time, most of the stretched marked skin below the umbilicus is gone as well to give your tummy a sexy taut look.
If you do liposuction at the same time for the upper abdomen, flanks or the lower back where you have the bulge, then it improves the figure even more and gets the pre-pregnancy figure back. This is called lipoabdominoplasty. Often, this enhances your body image and confidence. It can improve your posture. It also enables you to wear better fitting clothes.
Often after weight loss or fat removal, our skin sags down. You seem to have plenty of loose and lax skin drooping down with gravity. If you have a pendulous skin fold in the tummy area, sagging buttock, and love handles, you may be a candidate for a body buttock lift or circumferential lift. This is a surgical procedure to remove the excess skin and fat. It tightens, tautens and rejuvenates the skin.
