This surgery flattens the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall.
A Tummy Tuck surgery (Abdominal contouring ) can be done using a variety of techniques. If the cause is localized fat, the surgery can only be performed using liposuction techniques. If excess fat is combined with loose, sagging skin, abdominoplasty removes unwanted fat and skin by excision.
Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominal Contouring )
A tummy tuck is suitable for both men and women who are in good health. This surgery can take anywhere from one to five hours. You may need to stay overnight in the hospital, depending on your situation. You will get general anesthesia, which will put you to “sleep” during the operation.
Whether you’re having a partial or complete tummy tuck, the area that’s operated on will be stitched and bandaged. The bandage used will be a firm, elastic band that promotes proper healing. You will have to severely limit strenuous activity for at least six weeks.
