Whether due to pregnancy, major weight loss or the natural aging process, the skin of the stomach can become flaccid, loose and discomfort. Physical exercise and diets can help you lose weight, but these changes are unfortunately ineffective against excess or distended skin. The Abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck, can instead smooth and tone the belly, to the delight of patients who find a thinned and balanced personality.
Tummy tucks are a surgery that removes excess skin from the belly and tightens the underlying abdominal muscles, resulting in a flatter, smoother belly than most patients seek. You may not know it, but the timing of the intervention directly affects the quality of the result. Here are some types of tummy tuck that will help you choose the right surgery for you.
Types of the tummy tuck
Mini tummy tuck: it is a normal tummy tuck, but it removes a smaller amount of fat and skin, so its name mini. Like, all unlike a conventional tummy tuck, everything is in smaller quantity, starting from the incision. The rest of the procedure is similar to a common tummy tuck.
Circumferential tummy tuck: It should be noted that this procedure is indicated for people who have lost weight and the excess skin of the abdomen, thigh, and pomp are removed. It is called circumferential because it works in the area of the belly one in the area of the lower back, in both areas it is sought to eliminate excess skin.
T-shape: it is called this way because the incision that is made to the patient is precisely in the form of a T in the central area of the abdomen. Also, it is considered for patients who have lost a considerable amount of weight and who have undergone bariatric surgery.
Endoscopic-assisted tummy tuck: it is designed to work only the abdominal muscles, therefore, no fat and no skin is removed. As we have mentioned in previous paragraphs, the surgeon strengthens the muscles with the help of sutures and all this through small incisions that are not noticeable and therefore leaves no scar problems.
Dermo-lipectomy: It is very similar to mini-tummy tuck, but the procedure is reduced to remove the skin, fat is not removed and the muscles of the abdomen are not worked either.
Can one Give Birth to a child after the tummy tuck?
Of course, if a pregnancy occurs after the tummy tuck, it means that the belly skin and the muscles will have to stretch again to accommodate the baby’s growth. Again, this is safe for pregnancy, however, the corrections made by the tummy tuck can be erased and cause discomfort as well as the appearance of the belly.
The Abdominoplasty changes the appearance of the abdomen consistently, but do not take this result for granted for life. The duration of this result will depend on you and your willingness to avoid gaining weight. The Tummy Tuck Surgery cost in India is not so high in comparison of other countries. It is an investment that you must protect by adopting good eating habits and a certain level of activity. Achieving a balanced weight and maintaining it for several months is a good way to see if you are ready for your tummy tuck.
