Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty (or tummy tuck) aims to restore a flat and well-toned abdomen. Tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that addresses a protruding or loose and sagging tummy. Causes of such a condition are:
  1. Pregnancy
  2. Aging
  3. Significant fluctuations in weight
  4. Heredity
  5. Surgical history

Procedure

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. Umbilicus is relocated with a pleasing appearance. This procedure may be combined with liposuction to achieve a better shape and contour. Stretch marks may be removed or improved if they are located on the lower abdomen.

Anesthesia and Aftercare

The surgical procedure is undertaken under general anesthesia and a couple of days of hospital care is required. A week or two of healing rectifies the bruises caused due to the surgery.
Medical tip
Basic therapy against this medical condition is medical compression garment like Lipomed basic (GN model). Medical compression garments are prescribed by the doctor if required, and the patients are measured for the correct fit by specialist medical retailers (e.g. surgical appliance dealers): the user’s relevant measurements are taken so that the compression garment matches his anatomy exactly.
