Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck surgery

Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the lower and middle abdomen, and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall.

Abdominoplasty is not a surgical treatment for excess weight. Obese individuals who intend to lose weight should postpone any type of body contouring surgery until they are able to maintain their weight loss.

There are several different abdominoplasty techniques. It may be combined with other forms of body contouring surgery including liposuction, or it may be performed at the same time as other elective surgeries.

A tummy tuck is performed when there is excess abdominal skin that causes sagging.
Likewise, abdominoplasty can be performed when after pregnancy there is a distension of the abdominal wall due to a diastasis or separation of the rectus abdominis muscles.

The anesthesia used for abdominoplasty is general. In some particular cases it can be carried out using spinal anesthesia.

A tummy tuck is not the same as liposuction of the abdomen. Abdominal liposuction is performed when there is excess fat without the skin hanging. Excessively lax skin in the presence of fat and subjected to liposuction can worsen the appearance of the abdomen.
