What Is A Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?
Women’s bellies tend to accumulate a lot of loose tissue and skin after childbirth. The skin loses its shine, develops stretch marks of various severity, and becomes wrinkled and slack. Many women’s dressing patterns and wardrobe choices are ruined due to this shift. Worse yet, showing skin is uncomfortable because of unsightly bulges and stretch marks. Understandably, many new mothers strongly desire to return to their pre-pregnancy appearance. As new mothers return to hectic lives and stressful job conditions, this desire only grows.
Tummy Tuck (also known as Abdominoplasty) is a cosmetic surgical technique that flattens, tautens, and firms the abdomen. The procedure involves the excision of extra skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen to tighten the abdominal wall’s muscle and fascia. Patients with loose tissues after pregnancy or persons with sagging after considerable weight reduction typically seek this surgery.
How Does Tummy Tuck Surgery Work?
Tummy tucks, also known as abdominoplasty, are plastic surgeries that flatten the abdomen by removing extra skin and fat. The surgeon will also tighten the muscles inside the stomach during this treatment to give them a more attractive and symmetrical appearance.
Excessive stretching of Tummy (Abdominal) skin occurs due to pregnancy/obesity (loss of skin elasticity) or following significant weight loss in severe obesity. When the skin does not recoil and re-drape on its own, the belly requires Tummy Tuck surgery or Abdominoplasty.
