  • Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Sometimes, relentless exercise and countless hours spent at the gym seem vain when we are unable to get that perfect 'flat tummy' that we've been vying for. While it is said that the best way to change your body for the better is with diet and exercise, it doesn't work for everyone. In some individuals, the localised deposits of fat in the abdominal region combined with muscle laxity can make a "flat tummy" very difficult to achieve. In women this becomes all the more difficult if stretched and loose skin appears following pregnancy. Tummy tuck is done to remove the excess, lax skin from the area, and tighten the remaining to smooth out the abdomen. The surgeon works through a low abdominal incision. Because sagging skin will be pulled down over the abdomen before it is removed, it may be necessary to release the navel from its surrounding skin and bring it out through a new skin opening. Resulting scars across the pubic area and around the navel are permanent but flatten and lighten in colour over time. Sometimes, abdominoplasty may even be combined with liposuction to achieve the best result. In some instances, when skin laxity and muscle weakness are limited to the area below the navel, a modified abdominoplasty may be recommended.
