Tummy Tuck Surgery Overview
The tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin and in most cases restores the weakened or separated muscles by creating an abdominal profile which is smooth and firm.
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something which most of us strive for through weight control and exercises. Even people with normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen which protrudes and is loose and sagging. The common causes for this can be heredity, aging, prior surgery, pregnancy and significant fluctuations in weight.
Who Are The Best Candidate For A Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck surgery is suitable for both men and women with good health. Women having had several pregnancies may find this procedure useful to tighten their abdominal muscles and reduce the skin. A tummy tuck surgery is also an option for men and women who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits and loose skin around the belly.
Who Should Not Consider A Tummy Tuck?
If you are a woman who plans to get pregnant, then you should postpone a tummy tuck surgery until you are done having children. During a tummy tuck surgery, the vertical muscles are tightened and hence the future pregnancies can separate those muscles. If you are planning to lose a lot of weight, then a tummy tuck surgery is not appropriate for you and therefore it should not be used as an alternative to weight loss.

Hello, my name is Becky Davies from the UK. I had twins some 15 years before and had very loose hanging skin. I had lost about four and a half stone weight before getting a tummy tuck surgery in India. Having lost weight, I decided to get rid of that excess skin, since it was quite ugly. Since the long waiting period at the local hospital, I was searching for surgery options abroad. One of my friends recommended me to get a free consultation in India. I found the process very simple and straightforward. I also talked with the surgeon who was very kind and explained me about the procedure. I got a date booked with them and travelled to India. They helped me arrange the medical visa, travel and accommodation during my trip to India. After the surgery, my recovery was reasonably smoother and I wasn’t in too much pain. I am happy to get my surgery in India, the surgeon and the hospital staff were very caring. It was an amazing experience getting my surgery in India at such an affordable price.
Preparations For A Tummy Tuck Surgery
The first step is to choose a surgeon and discuss about the following options:
- Partial or mini abdominoplasty: It is often done on individuals whose fat deposits are located below the navel. The surgeon will most likely not move your belly button and the surgery will take up to two hours, depending on your case.
- Complete abdominoplasty: During this procedure, the surgeon will cut the abdomen from the hipbone to hipbone and then contour the skin, tissue and muscle as required. The surgery will involve moving your belly button and you will have drainage tubes under your skin for a few days.
Your doctor will ask you to quit smoking from at least two weeks before the surgery and also two weeks after the surgery. Do not try a drastic diet before the surgery. Eat a well-balanced, healthy diet which may help you to heal better. Tell your doctor about the prescription drugs, herbal medicines or other supplements that you take. Your surgeon will instruct you to stop taking certain medications before and after the surgery.
Before getting the surgery, get your home ready with the ice packs, petroleum jelly, loose, comfortable clothing, hand held shower head and bathroom. You will need someone to drive you home after the tummy tuck surgery.
How A Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty) is Performed?
The tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty surgery can take anywhere from one to five hours. You will get general anaesthesia, which will put you to sleep during the operation. During the surgical procedure, medications such as intravenous sedation and general anaesthesia are administered for your comfort. Your surgeon will recommend the best choice for you. A full tummy tuck requires a horizontally-oriented incision in the area between the belly button and the pubic hairline. The length and shape of the incision will determine the amount of excess skin. After the abdominal skin is lifted, the underlying weakened abdominal muscles are repaired. A second incision is made around the navel, which is necessary to remove the excess skin in the upper abdomen. The upper abdominal skin is then pulled down like a window shade. The excess skin is trimmed and the remaining skin is sutured together. A new opening for the belly button is created which pops through the surface and sutured into the position. The skin adhesives, sutures, tapes or clips are used to close the skin incisions. Your tummy tuck surgery will result in a flatter, firmer abdominal contour which is more proportionate with your body type and weight. Depending on your case, you will need to stay overnight in the hospital.
Depending on the choice of the tummy tuck surgery, the area operated on will be stitched and bandaged. You will need to follow all the instructions provided by your surgeon. You will be given instructions on how to care for the bandage in the days following the surgery. The bandage will be a firm, elastic band which promotes proper healing. Your surgeon will instruct you on how to best position yourself while sitting or lying down to help ease the pain. You will have to strictly limit strenuous activity for at least 6 weeks. You may need to take off from work for a month after the surgery to ensure complete recovery. Your doctor will advise you on what you need to do or not do.
Most people love their look after undergoing this procedure. Diet and exercise can help you maintain the results.
