    Abdominoplasty

    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.

    Possible Causes

    Abdominoplasty is an elective surgery for people who love to achieve a more sculpted form. The transformative tummy tuck procedure is also recommended by doctors when underlying abdominal muscles are stretched or damaged.

    Many women who have loose and sagging skin around the waist after pregnancy can get their smoother and tightened waist back. The tummy tuck procedure helps people get back their confidence.

    Risk Factors

    Just like any surgery, abdominoplasty also poses various risks. Some of them are fluid accumulation beneath the skin, unexpected scarring, changes in skin sensation, etc.

    Signs and Symptoms

    Apart from loose sagging skin there is no specific symptoms or signs when you need an abdominoplasty. If you have a wrinkled and sagging skin around waist you can consult with our cosmetic surgeons in Dubai.

    Diagnosis

    Ensure that you have a detailed discussion with our aesthetic surgeon before you undergo surgery. It is essential to understand all the benefits and risks associated with a tummy tuck. There are two reasons doctors recommend abdominoplasty—medical or cosmetic. There are various imaging techniques used to diagnose if you need the surgery or are an ideal candidate for abdominoplasty. The doctor will evaluate your pre-existing health condition and risk factors as well.

    Depending on the patients, three types of tummy tuck surgeries are performed in our plastic surgery clinic in Dubai. Abdominoplasty can be a minor or more involved procedure. It all depends on the final goal and the amount of skin and fat needed to be removed.

    • Complete Abdominoplasty: Patients who need major corrections go 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.
    • Partial or Mini-abdominoplasty: Mini-abdominoplasty is performed by making small incisions and removing excess fat around the navel area. 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.
    • 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.
