Want to Get a Flat Abdomen? A Tummy Tuck Can Help!

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure used to remove excess fat and skin through surgery. 

You may also consider this for tightening abdominal muscles to have a flat-looking abdomen. However, our expert plastic surgeons in Delhi don’t advise tummy tuck as an alternative to healthy weight loss methods including diet management and physical activity. 

They can help you with the procedure if non-surgical methods are no more effective to control dangerously rising weight levels.

 Eligible candidates for a tummy tuck

Our cosmetic surgeons in Delhi may recommend a tummy tuck in the following circumstances:

  • If you have gained localized fat around the abdominal area after pregnancy
  • If you have excess and bulky fat pockets due to aging 
  • If a sedentary lifestyle has led to the development of excess fat and skin around the abdominal area
  • If your excess weight is compromising your confidence and self-image

However, it is important to note that you should go for a tummy tuck if you: 

  • Have a BMI above 30
  • Are a smoker 
  • Are planning a pregnancy in the near future
  • Are expecting a significantly high cut in your weight
  • Are struggling with chronic illnesses such as heart disease or diabetes

You can speak to our expert plastic surgeons in Delhi to know your eligibility for a tummy tuck.

Preparing for a tummy tuck

To prepare for a tummy tuck, you are first required to meet our plastic surgeon in Delhi for a pre-surgery consultation. The meeting will include a discussion on the following important things:

  • Knowing your medical history if you have some present and past medical conditions. 
  • Learning about an allergy to any medication, especially the anesthesia
  • Understanding the expectations you have from a tummy tuck procedure
  • Allowing you the opportunity to share your doubts and concerns about the surgery 
  • Sharing with you the possible risk factors and precautions for the procedure.
  • Explaining to you the procedure that involves the use of anesthesia, and the need to make incisions on the targeted area

After discussing the essentials of what happens before and during the procedure, let’s tell you how you can take care of yourself post-surgery for a speedy recovery.

Should you add liposuction to your tummy tuck?

During a tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, a plastic surgeon will remove any excess fat and skin from your stomach area. They may also choose to reposition certain muscles in order to help with any weakness in the area. However, if you’re simply looking to remove any extra fat that might be present, liposuction can be performed which removes fat from under the skin. This option allows for more fat to be removed as well as shaping/contouring of the area.

Experiences post procedure

While most of our patients get a discharge on the same day, an overnight stay at the hospital may be required in some rare cases. If you are thinking you are ready to flaunt to a newly-found physique immediately after the procedure, you are expecting too much too early.

You will do it eventually but like any other major surgery; you have to give your body some time to heal. And, the recovery period may comprise some unpleasant experiences like:

  • Swelling or discharge at the surgical area.
  • Carrying dressing on fresh incision wounds 
  • Bearing small tubes to allow discharge of blood or mucus
  • Keeping pain medication handy to relieve pain. 

Here are some of the possible but normal discomforts following a tummy tuck procedure. But, in some cases (especially in those with problems that don’t support surgical procedures) some possible risks may evolve, like:

  • Unexpected scarring 
  • Poor wound healing
  • Changes in skin sensation
  • Accumulation of fluid beneath the skin (seroma)
  • Poor wound healing
  • Changes in skin sensation
