"Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a major cosmetic surgery that makes the abdomen firmer and thinner. The procedure includes the surgical removal of excess fat and sagging skin, and tightening of the skin."Types of Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Depending on the patients, there are three types of tummy tuck surgeries performed in our plastic surgery clinic in Dubai. Abdominoplasty can be minor or more involved procedure. It all depends on the final goal and amount of skin and fat needed to be removed.
- Complete Abdominoplasty: Patients who need major corrections goes for this option. The surgeon makes an incision on the bikini line, at the same level of your pubic hair. The surgeon removes the extra fat, skin, and tissues from the region. The length of the surgery scar depends on the length of extra skin removed. The surgeon may also make an incision around the belly button (navel region) to free the navel from surrounding tissue. Post-surgery, most patients have drainage tubes placed under the skin for few days.
- Partial or Mini-abdominoplasty: Mini-abdominoplasty is performed by making small incisions and removes excess fat around the navel area. The surgery is advised to patients who have less excess skin. The surgeon separates the skin between the line of incision and the belly button. The procedure takes only a couple of hours to be completed. Due to less complexity, the surgeon may or may not have drainage tubes after surgery.
- Circumferential Abdominoplasty: Circumferential abdominoplasty includes back surgery. The surgeon uses a longer incision to remove excess skin and fat from the patient's backside, mainly from the hip and butt region. The surgery aims to improve the shape of your body from all sides.
Tummy tuck must not be confused with liposuction or considered an alternative to weight loss. The procedure is safe for both men and women who have good health and stable weight. However, people who are obese and have undergone a drastic weight loss can also use the procedure to tighten loose skin and shape up their abdominal muscles. Many women who have loose and sagging skin around the waist after having several pregnancies can get their smoother and tightened waist back. The tummy tuck procedure helps people get back their confidence.
