Tummy Tuck

Best Tummy Tuck Treatment Clinic in Ranchi

Sudden massive weight loss and pregnancy can cause the skin over the abdomen to droop. This can also occur in people who have had BARIATRIC SURGERY to lose weight. Looseness of the abdominal muscles which can lead to hernias can also be treated at the same time. Unlike liposuction which is meant for removing fat only, abdominoplasty is more extensive and involves removal of fat, tightening of the musculature and removal of excess skin.
Tummy Tuck Surgery – Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a procedure which helps you to get rid of excess fat as well as laxity of the skin around the tummy area caused due to excessive weight loss, pregnancy, abdominal operations, or congenital spine abnormalities etc. Even individuals having otherwise normal body proportions develop a protruding, loose or sagging abdomen. A lax abdomen or a pendulous fold of skin is generally observed in women after pregnancy in the infra-umbilical area, where the skin has been stretched, there are stretch marks; they could have a caesarian scar in the lower abdomen. The skin becomes inelastic and forms a pendulous fold or causes a bulge in the front. This inelastic skin will not shrink by any means non-surgical. Abdominoplasty surgery helps you get rid of the loose skin and tighten the abdomen muscles. You will be left with a low caesarian scar which fades over time; most of the stretched marked skin below the umbilicus is gone as well to give your tummy a sexy taut look.
If you do liposuction at the same time for the upper abdomen, flanks or the lower back where you have the bulge, then it improves the figure even more and gets the pre-pregnancy figure back. This is called lipoabdominoplasty. Often, this enhances your body image and confidence. It can improve your posture. It also enables you to wear better fitting clothes.
Often after weight loss or fat removal, our skin sags down. You seem to have plenty of loose and lax skin drooping down with gravity. If you have a pendulous skin fold in the tummy area, sagging buttock, and love handles, you may be a candidate for a body buttock lift or circumferential lift. This is a surgical procedure to remove the excess skin and fat. It tightens, tautens and rejuvenates the skin.

Tummy Tuck Surgery:

Thorough liposuction of the abdominal skin is first carried out. The excess skin then moves more easily and the skin to be removed is marked. The incision is marked within the bikini line and the excess skin is excised, the belly button is then cored out. The abdominal muscles are tightened in the midline and if required in the lower abdomen. In case there is a hernia that is also repaired at the same time. The belly button is brought through good skin and the incision closed in layers over a suction drain. Contrary to what you may think, the belly button is not removed during the operation.

Recovery from Tummy Tuck Surgery:

After surgery, you will put in a pressure garment for about 6 weeks. There will be fluffy dressing over the suture line. You will feel sore for a few days but will be essentially mobile. The drains will be removed once the drainage volume is low. You will be discharged from the hospital in a couple of days. You will be able to walk and go about your routine activities with due care.
Early mobilization is very important as this prevents formation of blood clots in the legs. Injury to deeper organs is rare as the surgery is done under direct vision. CT scan is done before surgery to assess any weakness of the abdominal wall or pick up intra abdominal problems that can cause abdominal fullness.
