Tummy Tuck Surgery, also known as Abdominoplasty(Tubeless tuck) removes excess fat and skin from the lower abdomen. It restores the weakened and separated midline abdominal muscles creating a waist profile that is shapelier, firmer and stronger.
The following can opt for a tummy tuck procedure:
If you are having loose and sagging lower abdominal wall skin with weakened muscles eg generally after a number of pregnancies, age effect, previous surgeries.
If you are not able to tighten the tummy wall skin with exercise.
You will have a smoother and flatter tummy.
Stronger tummy muscles with a good waist contour.
The Tummy Tuck procedure is carried under general anaesthesia.
The mini abdominoplasty tightens the lower abdominal skin only. It dosenot work on the muscles or supra umbilical skin.
Standard abdominoplasty tightens abdominal wall skin as well as the midline abdominal muscles. It works on the supra umbilical skin as well and a new shapelier umbilical is formed. It has a standard scar.
Extended abdominoplasty tightens the abdomen and the flanks or sides. The scar extends from the lower abdomen to flanks onto the lower back as well.
