Symptoms

A tummy tuck is suitable for men and women who are in good health.
Women who have had several pregnancies may find the procedure useful for tightening their abdominal muscles and reducing skin.
A tummy tuck is also an option for men or women who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly.

Causes

Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that improves the contour of the abdomen and waist. A tummy tuck flattens the stomach area by removing excess fat and skin and tightening the muscles. When you cannot achieve the above by dieting or exercise, tummy tuck or Abdominoplasty is the only solution.

More about Treatment

This surgery can take anywhere from one to five hours. You may need to stay overnight in the hospital, depending on your case. You will get general anesthesia, which will put you to "sleep" during the operation.

The surgery requires two incisions– one from hipbone to hipbone, close to the pubic area, and another around the navel. The skin is then separated from the abdominal muscles which are then pulled together and stitched. This provides a taut abdomen and smoother waist. Next, liposuction is performed on the abdomen and flanks. The remaining skin flap is then pulled down over the tightened muscles and excess skin is removed. The navel is reattached in a natural position.
