Even if proper dieting and exercising routines are in place, some loose skin or fat deposits, as well as stretch marks, can persist in the stomach region. Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, can restore a proper abdomen appearance.
A tummy tuck is not the same as Liposuction which is considered to be a less invasive procedure using general anesthetic with no removal of skin. Many people in Chennai choose to have both surgeries as they need the fat sucked out and the skin cut away and tucked in to tighten the body.
Tummy tucks are not a substitute for weight loss or excuse one from engaging in exercise. Also, tummy tuck operations won’t remove stretch marks.
While the reasons to get one of these operations are legitimate, many people get these surgeries to correct a past filled with lots of sweet & fatty food, fast food & junk food.
Tummy tuck is a procedure, in which the extra fat and skin are excised, and the abdominal muscles are tightened. This procedure can be done alone, or in a conjunction with a liposuction that could improve body contours further.
People, who consider a tummy tuck should be healthy, relatively fit and not plan any future pregnancies for they may return the tightened muscles to a stretched position.

What is a Tummy Tuck?
One of the most popular procedures for women who have had a baby, people who have enjoyed incredible success with their weight loss method, or people who have had other surgeries to remove unnecessary and unwanted body fat from their systems, tummy tucks are an incredible breakthrough in modern medicine and science.
A procedure that removes all of the extra skin and fat from around your lower stomach and abdominal area, leaving you with a clean and tight midsection again, it’s important to understand that this is not a weight loss method.
Rather, this is the ultimate solution for taking your weight loss to the next level with cosmetic surgery, helping you to really display your hard-won body with very little effort on your behalf.
Mini & Full – Tummy Tuck
Full & Mini Tummy Tuck are usually done under the local anesthesia and sedation, where the area that is being operated on is numb and you are relaxed. General anesthesia can also be administered.
The procedure length may be different, depending on how much tissue is going to be removed and whether the liposuction will be performed. The physician makes an incision over the pubic area.
This incision is made as inconspicuously as possible, and is usually hidden under the bathing suits or undergarments – but you should understand that some scarring will remain. Next, an incision is made around the navel that will free it from the surrounding tissues.
Skin and fatty tissue layers are elevated to open the muscles in abdominal area. The physician then sutures the muscles, pulling them together and creating a flat and firm abdominal wall, as well as a slimmer waistline. When the muscles are tightened, this layer is stretched backwards and a new hole is created for the navel.
Extra skin and fatty tissues that are hanging over the original incision are removed. The tubes are placed around the abdomen that will drain any liquid from the area and are usually removed within a couple of weeks after the operation.
Sutures are removed around this time, as well. Pain, bruising and swelling are to be expected and they usually vanish in several weeks. Scars will slowly fade to thin in time.
Benefits of undergoing a Tummy tuck
The first major benefit you’ll be able to enjoy is a radically improved appearance almost overnight. While this cosmetic surgical procedure is minimally invasive, it is still a surgical procedure, and therefore will produce results faster than anything else on the planet.
This also means that your tummy tuck procedure will have to incur some increased risks, which makes it all the more important to ensure that you are only trusting the most skilled and experienced professionals to help you with this overnight change.
The second major boost you’re going to notice right after you have a tummy tuck is that your self-confidence will go through the roof. Most people who have worked incredibly hard to lose a dramatic amount of weight are all almost heartbroken when they look at the scale and see a low number but look in the mirror and see the costs of cutting that weight.
Almost all men and women that have dropped a noticeable and significant amount of fat in the past have to deal with at least some form of loose skin and fatty tissue that is almost impossible to remove – unless you go for a tummy tuck.
Benefits – Aesthetic vs. Practical
Aside from the cosmetic results you’ll be able to enjoy moments after your tummy tuck surgery has been performed, you’ll also be able to enjoy some very real pain relief at the same time.
If you have had trouble sleeping or had to deal with loose skin getting pinched in your clothing, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Once you’ve had the best tummy tuck performed, you can forget all about all of the little annoyances and even shooting pains you’ve had to deal with because of your loose skin problem. They’ll all but disappear the moment you move forward with this cosmetic surgery solution.
The recovery of a Tummy Tuck procedure varies among individual patients mainly based on amount of skin / fat removed, which area of the body the procedure was for and the type of procedure they underwent (mini, full, muscle tightening etc.).
On an average, complete recovery times can vary from anywhere between one week to three weeks, but patients can get back to their normal daily routines within just a few days.
Do not smoke for at least two weeks after any kind of surgery. Not even a little, for smoking can inhibit the healing after a procedure and cause complications to the surgery if you smoke prior.
There will be pain and swelling. It is suggested that you spend as little time on your feet at possible and have someone to assist you for at least the first few days post op. You will want to have ice packs, easy fit clothing handy and you’ll want to take care getting in and out of the shower.
It will take up to 2 months to heal completely and it is recommended that you prepare to take month off from work. After healing, and becoming satisfied with your Tummy Tuck Surgery, diet and exercise will help you to maintain your new body.
The only thing you really have to be aware of is that the medical professional that is handling your tummy tuck is absolutely reliable, professional, and has the necessary skills to give you the outcome you’re looking for. All of this can be researched on the Internet inside of just a few moments, giving you the peace of mind you need.
