Tummy Tuck/Abdominoplasty in Jaipur

Tummy Tuck/Abdominoplasty

A tummy tuck is a procedure commonly sought when abdominal area experiences changes due to massive weight loss and pregnancy. Tummy tuck better known as lipoabdominoplasty is the term which refers to tummy tuck being performed with liposuction to give more effective results and remove any contour deformity. Tummy tuck results in a flatter abdomen that results in improved body image and self-confidence.

When to consider a Tummy Tuck?

  • Post-pregnancy excessive loose lax abdominal skin with stretch marks resulting in loss of self-confidence.
  • Post weight loss, excessive loose skin in lower abdomen not affected by exercise.
  • Protruding lax abdomen.

What are the types of Abdominoplasty?

  • Mini abdominoplasty
    The skin incision is made in the bikini line and excess loose skin tissue is removed best suited only for those patients who had skin excess in the lower abdomen but otherwise good body shape.  
  • Full abdominoplasty
    Bikini line incision is made. The umbilicus is relocated. Muscle tightening is done till epigastrium along with liposuction of flanks to give the proper shape. This procedure also results in the removal of stretch marks present over the abdomen after childbirth with a properly shaped and toned abdomen.  
  • High Tension Lateral Abdominoplasty/ Lower Body lift
    The procedure is considered in patients who along with abdominal laxity needs improvement in flanks, thigh laxity, and buttock ptosis.

What to consider before surgery?

  • The best time to consider a tummy tuck is 9-12 months post-delivery.
  • Ideal to consider when a woman has had completed her family, a tummy tuck doesn’t affect conception but childbirth affects the results of tummy tuck (as abdominal skin again stretches during pregnancy).
  • It is best to quit smoking at least 2 weeks before surgery and till two months after surgery.
  • If a person is morbidly obese they must consult the plastic surgeon first as they may require weight loss surgery or dietary counseling first and months later when body weight falls one can consider for abdominoplasty to get rid of the extra skin fold.

  • Naval is then repositioned at a new place.

FAQs

Usually, the epidural catheter is kept to keep patients pain free for a day or two. In most cases but also depending on the patient’s threshold, patients are up and about from day one. Drains are out by 2nd or 3rd day, and the patient can be discharged. A pressure garment needs to be worn for one month. Work off/leave is recommended for 1 week to 10 days.

The results last forever if patients maintain body weight. But if pregnancy and massive weight gain occur, then there will be again stretching of the skin and loose skin appears. But usually, patients are so motivated after the surgery that patients tend to maintain weight and take care of themselves in a much better way.
