What is Abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck)?
An abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery to reshape the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin and tightening the abdominal wall muscles.
Abdominoplasty help create a more visually appealing body for those who have excess fat, loose skin or have undergone a pregnancy or weight loss.
Full Abdominoplasty vs mini Abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasties are broken down into two types: full and mini.
As implied by the name, a full abdominoplasty is a more intense and invasive procedure for patients with more extreme cases like post-pregnancy or after a sizable weight loss.
It aims to treat muscle separation, removing and separating loose skin in the abdomen area. Abdominoplasty procedures involve general anaesthesia and typically last from 3-5 hours. Most patients make a full recovery in 4-6 weeks.
Why have a tummy tuck?
As well as the potential self-conscious issues associated with large abdominal fat deposits or loose abdominal skin, there are a number of health risks associated with these conditions such as back and posture difficulties.
History has also proven that these areas often don’t respond well to diet and exercise. There are a number of reasons for choosing to have an abdominoplasty including:
To remove loose abdominal skin after losing weight
To reduce excess skin and fat without any weight loss
To improve your muscle and skin tone after pregnancy
To remove large fat deposits in the abdominal area
To improve skin elasticity if you are an older patient
At your consultation with Dr Goldman, you will discuss your expectations and the ideal results you are looking for.
Abdominoplasty Cosmetic Surgery is a major cosmetic surgical procedure so it is imperative that all options are considered in detail before making a final decision.
Dr Goldman will thoroughly go through this important choice with you.
As a guideline, if large fat deposits are involved and there is bulging of the abdominal muscles or excess skin and fat hanging over the pubic region, it is most likely that you will require abdominoplasty cosmetic surgery.
If the excessive skin and fat is focused more directly below the navel, then a smaller operation termed “Mini-Tuck” Cosmetic Surgery is potentially a better choice.
Dr Goldman will review your body areas of concern and recommend the procedure that will work best for you.
