Tummy Tuck Aesthetics: Who is it suitable for and How is it performed?

Tummy tuck aesthetics is a preferred aesthetic surgery procedure for many people who experience dissatisfaction due to sagging, loosening or excess fat tissue in the abdominal area. This procedure may be suitable for those who want to achieve a firmer and flatter abdominal appearance. Here are the things to know about tummy tuck aesthetics:

Who is it suitable for?

1. Sagging Abdominal Region: Abdominoplasty is ideal for those who experience discomfort due to sagging skin or muscle relaxation in the abdominal area. This condition can often occur due to ageing, pregnancy, weight loss or genetic factors.

2. Healthy Body Weight: Candidates should have a healthy body weight prior to surgery. Tummy tuck surgery is not a procedure targeting weight loss.

3. General Health Status: Candidates should undergo a general health examination for surgery. Chronic health problems may increase the risks of surgery.

4. Preoperative and Postoperative Care: It is important for candidates to follow the care instructions before and after surgery as recommended by the doctor.

5. Realistic Expectations: Candidates should have realistic expectations regarding the results of surgery. The surgery can tighten the abdominal area but does not completely change the body contours.

How is it done?

1. Consultation: The first step is to have a consultation with a specialised plastic surgeon or surgical oncologist. At this stage, the purpose of the surgery and the expectations of the candidate are determined.

2. Anaesthesia: The surgery is usually performed under general anaesthesia so that the patient is asleep during the operation.

3. Incision: The plastic surgeon makes an incision to remove excess skin and fat tissue in the surgical area. Since this incision is below the bikini line, the scars will remain under the underwear.

4. Tightening the Abdominal Muscles: During the tummy tuck procedure, the abdominal muscles are tightened as needed. This gives the abdominal area a flatter and firmer appearance.

5. Skin Tightening and Stitches: Excess skin is cut and stretched. The skin sutures are then removed and the surgical area is covered with a bandage.

6. Corset Use: At the end of the operation, the patient should use a medical corset for 1 month.

7. Recovery Process: The postoperative recovery process varies from person to person. It usually takes a few weeks and physical activities are started gradually.

Tummy tuck aesthetics can help the person to correct body contours and achieve a tighter abdomen. However, providing care as recommended by the doctor before and after surgery is the key to successful results. Candidates can evaluate whether surgery is a suitable option for them by consulting with a specialist plastic surgeon.
