Basics of Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty

Best Tummy tuck Abdominoplasty for fat belly to thin belly in Kolkata India

Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) is a major surgery to strengthen and reshape the abdomen resulting in a nicely chiselled smooth and firm abdomen. Excess skin and fat from the abdomen is removed permanently. In post-pregnancy women, this includes removal of most of the stretch marks along with loose saggy skin below the navel. Weakened or separated abdominal muscles are strengthened, and simultaneous liposuction is performed wherever necessary.

Well-toned, flat ideal abdomen
A well-toned, flat abdomen is a desired ideal of many. In spite of diet, exercises and weight control regimes, it may become very difficult in achieving that ideal. An abdomen that is protruding out or is loose and flabby can occur even in people with normal weight and adequate body proportions. Some of these problems are hereditary, unfortunately. For most women, it occurs following pregnancy, previous abdominal surgery, fluctuations of weight or even as a natural ageing process.

Best Candidates for Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty

Best Candidates for tummy tuck are:
  • All people who are otherwise in good health
  • It is very good for all post-pregnancy women. This surgery removes abdominal protrusion, tightens the abdominal muscles and removes lax skin containing stretch marks. The abdomen looks rejuvenated. The patient appears almost the same as what she was before pregnancy.
  • It is a good option for both men and women with massive weight loss - who were once obese and have lost weight later. This procedure takes care of the excess fat deposits or loose sagging skin in the belly, including stretch marks.

N.B. The patient must always remember that this plastic surgery is for reshaping the abdomen and is not an alternative to diet and exercises for losing weight.

So, it is better not to do a tummy tuck when:
  • Patients plan to go through weight loss regimes in future
  • Women who plan for pregnancy in the near future. (A better idea is to perform this procedure in women after their family is complete).

Different Types of Tummy Tuck

Complete / Standard Abdominoplasty

In this classical or standard surgery, a long incision runs from one hip bone to the other. Another smaller circular incision is placed around the umbilicus, separating it from rest of the abdomen. In post-pregnancy women, this will excise out previous Caesarean section scars and surrounding lax abdomen with stretch marks. The whole abdominal skin and fat is separated from underlying abdominal muscles. Excess skin and fat is excised. Lax abdominal muscles are tightened with sutures, creating a snug reshaped abdominal midline. Additional liposuction is frequently performed to remove stubborn fat pockets in the abdomen. Results are excellent, with taut muscles and taut abdomen, with nice shape and contours.

Extended Abdominoplasty:

Some people have greater amount of loose sagging skin in their entire lower body including the lower abdomen, hips and abdominal flanks. Most people with massive weight loss fall in this category. Extended abdominoplasty, a major plastic surgery, is performed for such people to give a nicely shaped contoured abdomen.
Incision made in this surgery is longer, extending the entire front sides and back of the abdomen and lower body after going round above the hip region. In almost all cases a simultaneous liposuction is necessary to remove excess fatty tissues. Muscles in the abdomen and around the flanks over the hip regions are then tightened in two planes. One is in the midline vertically and the second transversely from one flank to the other. This major plastic surgery called 'lateral high tension abdominoplasty' makes the entire abdominal musculature tight from all sides. Overlying abdominal front flank and back skin-fat envelope is shaped and draped on top of this newly tightened abdominal muscles.

Mini Abdominoplasty:

This is the smallest surgery in this series. Because of its short incision, it is sometimes called 'Scarless Tummy Tuck'. It removes a smaller portion of skin and fat through a short incision in lower abdomen and tightens the abdomen in the lower part only, upto the navel. It can help only those people with a small amount of stubborn belly flab that does not  respond to diet and exercise. Most of these people are otherwise healthy and fit. They want to get rid of an extra pouch of overhanging skin and fat in lower abdomen that hampers the shape and look of an otherwise sleek physical shape.

Endoscopic Abdominoplasty:

For people who have a gap in the abdominal midline and want to tighten the muscles only, Endoscopic Abdominoplasty is a good alternative. This is performed through small incisions and removes lesser amount of skin and fat. Frequently it's done only for the abdominal muscles above the navel; and combined with mini abdominoplasty for the lower abdomen.

Costs of Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty

The costs of tummy tuck / abdominoplasty includes surgeons' fees; hospital or surgical facility costs; anaesthesia costs; medicine costs; post-surgery compression garments costs & costs of medical tests. Thus, the costs can fluctuate depending on the hospital facility chosen, whether liposuction is combined with tummy tuck, the instruments for liposuction utilised and the type of tummy tuck being performed.  Ultimately, your satisfaction after a well performed tummy tuck is much more precious than the price paid for tummy tuck surgery - in fact, it is 'priceless'.
