Abdominoplasty is popularly known as ‘tummy tuck’. It is a cosmetic procedure, which is performed to make your abdomen look in shape. It involves removing excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen. It also involves stitching of connective tissues to give a toned look to the stomach.
Steps to take before the surgery
Our doctors at Medanta will review your medical records and history. You will need to share information about your medications, allergic reactions, and about your weight gain/loss. The doctor will do a physical examination of your abdomen. In addition, your expectations will be discussed in detail, so that you have a satisfactory outcome. You will also be advised to stop certain medicines and quit smoking. The doctor may prescribe new medications too.
What happens during the surgery?
The surgery is done under general anaesthesia. Under complete abdominoplasty, the abdominal muscles are tightened by surgical statures. The excess skin and fat are removed. During the procedure, the excess fluid is also removed from the abdomen. Your navel will be put back into normal shape. Later, the surgical cuts are stitched and closed. The surgical wound is then dressed up. In partial abdominoplasty, the excess fat in the lower abdomen is treated. Under this procedure, a surgical incision is made above your pubic hairline, and the excess skin is removed. No muscle tightening is done, and even the naval is not repositioned.
After the procedure
A surgical dressing is done on the incisions in the naval area. You will be clinically assisted to walk as soon as possible. The normal recovery time is 4-6 weeks. Your doctor will prescribe you antibiotics and painkillers.
