What is Tummy Tuck?
Those who cannot solve such problems get a Tummy Tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, and get a firmer abdomen and a firmer abdominal profile and a tummy with strengthened connective tissue.
Tummy tuck surgery is for both men and women whose bodies have undergone dramatic changes from fluctuations in weight, pregnancy, loss of skin elasticity, effects of aging and gravity all contribute to loss of tone in the abdomen. These problems can be seen in any part of the body, especially in the abdominal area and abdominal lipoidosis generally cannot be eliminated with exercise and diet. Tummy Tuck allows you to regain your figure, feel more confident about your body shape and, wear a wider choice of outfits.
Doctor B points out four important issues for a beautiful and natural tummy;
1. Placement and shape of belly button
The most important, but most ignored issue of the Tummy Tuck surgery is the location of the newly formed belly button. The new belly button should be aligned with the pelvic bone in accordance with the body proportion. If the belly button is not properly placed, this causes an odd look and gives an unaesthetic look.
2. Correlation between tummy and pubis
Tummy Tuck operation allows you to have an aesthetic abdomen and this puffy area between clitoris and caesarean scar should support this new formation. The lipoidosis problem in this area named the Venus bump, this can be resolved within the same surgery. This area has the same lipoidosis problem as like the abdomen area and it is essential to give an aesthetic form to this area as well
3. Localization of incision under bikini level
The incision scar should be within the bikini area after the Tummy Tuck to conceal it and provide an aesthetic look. It should be located low inside the caesarean stitches.
4. Formation of a curved waist
The newly formed tummy area will not match the waistline, that’s why it is important to also reshape the waist curve. Lipoidosis on the waist area must be eliminated.
Who is a good candidate for Tummy Tuck?
If you have excess skin or sagging in your abdominal area or an excess fat tissue that affects your general appearance, if your abdominal muscles are weak and you have regional lipoidosis you might be a good candidate for a Tummy Tuck. Especially women who want to get Tummy Tuck surgery should tell Doctor B about their pregnancy plans before the operation.

During Tummy Tuck
Tummy Tuck operation begins after applying the preferred anesthesia type. There are a number of variations of an abdominoplasty. They include: total tummy tuck is major surgery, it tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall and removes loose skin and fat from your abdomen to create a flatter, more toned and shapelier tummy.
Mini tummy tuck, is suitable if you have just a little excess skin. In a mini tummy tuck, abdominal muscles are shaped in a limited area without touching the belly button, but, in total tummy tuck, all excess skin and fat are removed in the area and the belly button is placed back. Muscles in the area from which the excess is removed are sewn together. We get rid of the bulge areas in the abdomen and waist curve is shaped. Operation is completed by placing the drains at the area in order to stop excess blood or fluid discharge.
After Tummy Tuck
When the Tummy Tuck operation is completed, the abdomen area is loosely bandaged to minimize the swelling and bruising. A drain is placed under the bandage in order to stop excess blood or fluid discharge. The recovery time of the first scar is observed within 5 to 10 days. Swelling dissipates within two weeks after the surgery and incision lines start to fade. After the operation, it may take a couple of weeks for the swelling to go down. Your body gets used to its new contour and you regain your form each day. You will have an abdominal scar that is normally hidden by your underwear. It will fade overtime and become barely noticeable. If you watch your weight and live a healthy life, Tummy Tuck will help you to stay fit for the rest of your life.
