Are exhausting sit-ups and exercises not giving you the tummy you want. It you still want to get rid of too much flab or excess skin that doesn't respond to diet or exercise, DeConsilior suggests you to consider a "tummy tuck," which doctors call "abdominoplasty."
Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is the removal of the excess skin and stretch marks after pregnancy or weight loss. During the abdominoplasty plastic surgeon removes excess skin and fat and tightens the abdominal wall.
Typically, for most patients it is possible to remove 30-50% of the abdominal skin that helps to get rid of any stretch marks. The rest of the skin covering the entire abdomen is stretched, and thus, visually you become much thinner.
During abdominoplasty surgeons pays attention to the belly button: it becomes more nicer than before the operation.
Of course, you might be interested in the location of the incision. The standard abdominoplasty incision is located in the lower abdomen and will remain under the underwear that will not be seen.
In addition to abdominoplasty you might consider to make a liposuction. Liposuction will help to reduce thebody fat. The final result will completely satisfy you.
There are two types of abdominoplasty:
• Full abdominoplasty
The plastic surgeon removes fat and excess skin from your abdomen and your surgeon will then manipulate and contour the skin. After, the incision will be made across the lower abdomen from one side of the pelvic bone to the other. The operation also includes the movement of the belly button.
• Mini abdominoplasty
Mini abdominoplasty is often done for patients whose fat deposits are located below the navel. During this procedure, the surgeon will not move your navel, and the procedure will take about two hours, depending on the situation.
If you are in good health condition, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are likely a good candidate for abdominoplasty. The operation lasts about 2-3 hours. After surgery, the patient is staying for 1-2 days in the clinics, and a week later will come to the postoperation examination by the surgeon. Within 8-10 days ahappy patient can return to normal life.
