Abdominal plastic surgery involves procedures to remove and tighten excess skin, fat, and muscle tissue. Abdominal plastic surgery also called as a tummy tuck, is a commonly requested surgery of the abdomen.
Abdominoplasty is performed to correct the abdomen which has become large, droopy, and wrinkled over time. Many seeking abdominal plastic surgery have lost large amounts of weight and now have saggy skin and tissue which abdominal plastic surgery can remove.
Abdominal plastic surgery usually includes liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), or both. In some cases, abdominal plastic surgery is performed on a small, particular section of the stomach—this is called a “mini-tuck.” This type of abdominal plastic surgery removes fat and stiffens skin and muscles below the belly button.
Abdominal plastic surgery is impersonated on a small or a specific portion of the stomach called as a mini-tuck. Tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure which can be enacted on an inpatient or outpatient basis using general or regional anesthesia. A horizontal gash is made at the lower abdominal area, from hip bone to hip bone along the "bikini" line, just above the pubic area were the resulting scar could be concealed by clothing.
A second incision is made to free the navel from surrounding tissue. A mini or biased tummy tuck is used to remove fat deposits near the navel, the incision is much shorter and the navel may not be moved, though it may be pulled into an unnatural shape as the skin is tightened and stitched.
The abdominoplasty is attained by the surgical removal of excess skin and fatty tissue, through incisions around the lower portions of the abdomen, and around the umbilicus. More traditional abdominal plastic surgery reduces the size of and strengthens the complete stomach area.
Abdominal plastic surgery in these cases include of small incisions above the pubic bone. This type of abdominal plastic surgery removes fat and tightens skin and muscles beneath the belly button.
In the conventional abdominal plastic surgery, the incisions are larger in size, and the site can take longer to heal. A complete tummy tuck normally takes about 2 to 5 hours.
