What is tummy tuck?

Some people have too much flab or excess skin in their abdomen. Aging, heredity, pregnancy, prior surgery, and fluctuations in weight are the most common reasons for this condition. For example, in postpartum women who usually suffer from sagging muscle in the abdominal area and their abdomen doesn't respond to exercise or diet. Likewise, a significant weight loss also leaves a surplus of skin in large quantities. Even some individuals have normal weight but their abdomen is protruded or is loose and sagging. Also, it is advised to perform a tummy tuck, in people with an abdominal hernia. The goal of surgery is purely cosmetic and has no medical necessity. The tummy tuck is commonly performed by a plastic surgeon on the tummy. Patients can feel confident again in swimwear and form-fitting clothes. It might be performed alone or in combination with other procedures such as liposuction. It is not recommended for people who suffer from restricted blood flow, diabetes, coronary artery disease or a weak immune system. Abdominoplasty is directed when all other methods have failed.

• Adults with good skin elasticity and muscle tone. • Patients who are within 30% of ideal weight. • Adults who are conscious about excess fat, skin, scars or a lack of definition around the tummy. • Patients with the weak lower abdominal wall. • Patients that Liposuction didn't adequately improve the appearance of their abdomen.

Preparing for abdominoplasty includes a preliminary consultative meeting, during which it is ensured that the person who wishes to perform tummy tuck surgery does not suffer from diseases that prevent him/her from performing it. The surgeon may mark the areas of the body that will be treated and also take some photographs. The doctor will explain to the patient the areas from which excess skin can and should be removed. Usually, there is no need for many tests, except for the complete blood count (CBC), blood chemistry test, and coagulation tests. Older patients may be asked to have a chest x-ray. Consult your doctor about medications that should be discontinued before surgery. Patients should stop taking Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medicines at least 2 weeks before the surgery. Women should be asked to stop taking the contraceptive pills. Patients who suffer from anemia should be asked to take iron. You should refrain from drinking alcohol for a full 48 hours, and fast for 8 hours before surgery. Patients should stop smoking a few weeks before and after the surgery. Patients may need to take an anticoagulant agent to prevent blood clotting. They should maintain a stable weight at least 12 months before the tummy tuck. If they are overweight, the surgeon may recommend losing weight before the surgery.
