What Is Abdominoplasty Surgery?
An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that can be used to improve the appearance of the abdomen. During the procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the lower abdominal area, and the muscles may be tightened for a more toned look. Abdominoplasty is often combined with liposuction for optimal results. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that can be used to remove excess fat from specific sections of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, and arms.
How Abdominoplasty Is Performed
An abdominoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia. First, a horizontal incision is made along the lower abdomen, just above the pubic area. Next, any excess skin and fat are removed from the area. The abdominal muscles may also be tightened during this process. Once the excess skin is removed, the incisions are closed with sutures and a compression garment is placed around the area to help with healing.
The Benefits of Abdominoplasty
A male abdominoplasty can help improve the appearance of the midsection by removing excess skin and fat, and tightening the abdominal muscles — leading to a more toned and sculpted look. If you have lost a large amount of weight or have fluctuations in weight, it can be difficult to obtain this improvement in contour with diet and exercise alone.
Dr. Bajaj performs abdominoplasty with general anesthesia to help you avoid any pain or discomfort. Before she begins the procedure, she will choose the incision technique that is best suited for your individual needs. The size of the incision will depend on the amount of excess skin that needs to be removed. If you are receiving a full or extended abdominoplasty, the incision will be placed from hip to hip right above the pubic area. The resulting scar will be easily hidden under clothing, underwear, or swimsuits. Abdominoplasty can also be combined with other body contouring procedures, including a circumferential body lift and/or liposuction.
