Tummy Tuck

A flat and well-toned belly is everyone’s dream. Some people are lucky enough to make their dream come true with strict diet and exercises. But others feel wretched for the fatty tummy that refuses to budge even after following diet, exercise and other weight loss measures. 


Some people may lose those extra kilos but get loose and saggy skin around their abdomen which looks even worse.  

However, plastic surgery offers a great solution for both these problems. Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty is a one-step procedure that not only gives a flat abdomen by removing excessive fat but also tightens the weak or separated muscles of abdomen to give your abdomen a smooth and firm appearance.
There are different variations in the technique and types of tummy tuck. Broadly speaking, Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty is of following three types: 

  • The Mini Tummy Tuck or the scar less tummy tuck, removes only a small amount of stubborn belly flab along with small portion of skin with the help of a small incision. 

  • The Extended Tummy Tuck removes excessive fat and extra skin from the abdomen, hips and sides of lower back. 

  • The Standard Tummy Tuck removes a good size of loose skin especially from the midsection. It is mostly done along with liposuction now and is known as lipoabdominoplasty.

Do I Need a Tummy Tuck?

Now after knowing about tummy tuck, the first question that strikes everybody’s mind is “Do I need a tummy tuck?” Well here is an answer for this query.
Tummy tuck is the best solution for otherwise healthy male and female with following issues:  
  • Sagging and protruding abdomen: In some cases, the person looses considerable amount of weight by following a strict diet and regular exercise routine but is left with loose skin around the tummy, flanks and back. These areas become saggy and look like an overhang or apron of skin covering the abdomen. Tummy tuck or Extended tummy tuck can remove this extra skin to give a tight appearance to the abdominal area.

  • Stretch marks, lose skin and muscles due to pregnancy:  Women often face this problem of lose skin, muscles and flab in the abdominal area after pregnancy and childbirth. The stretch marks in the target area of tummy tuck can also be resolved.

  • Frequent weight fluctuations: Frequent weight gain and loss can result in loosening of skin around abdomen that gives a fatty look to the person. This can also be managed by tummy tuck.

  • Separated abdominal muscles: Abdominal muscles that have separated either on their own or after pregnancy can cause loose and saggy skin. The relaxation of these muscles lead to tummy bulging that can be addressed by tummy tuck procedure.

Most importantly, the person should be positive and must have realistic expectations from the procedure.

 I need a Tummy tuck but can’t afford it

Tummy tuck is not a regular procedure that can be done anywhere. It should be performed by a specialist who understands the art of body contouring. Moreover, most of the health insurance companies do not consider it a medical procedure. It falls under the purview of cosmetic procedure and is not covered.
