What is Tummy tuck?

Tummy Tuck surgery, scientifically known as Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the abdominal contour which has been deformed due to some or the other reason.
The commonest reason of a deformed abdomen is pregnancy when the uterus expands to accommodate the growing baby. To restore the shape or the anatomy and to bring the structure to the pre-pregnancy level, the muscles have to be tightened and excess skin has to be removed. These changes can be only be brought about by the surgical procedure called Abdominoplasty surgery (repair of the abdomen) or Tummy Tuck surgery.

Also known as Mommy Makeover, the additional benefit of Tummy Tuck surgery is that the stretch marks are removed. Also, another reason is massive weight gain. Apart from pregnancy, massive weight lost, by bariatric surgery or a gastric balloon results in the loose hanging skin that may require a tuck procedure.

Types of Tummy Tuck

Complete Tummy Tuck Complete Tummy Tuck surgery means the deformity of the whole of the abdomen, both above and below the umbilicus is corrected. The cut for abdominoplasty is taken in the panty line inferiorly. The dissection is carried out below the umbilicus, around the umbilicus, protecting the umbilical stalk and in the upper portion of the abdomen. The umbilical stalk is detached and freed. Excess skin is then removed after taking key stitches. Umbilicus stalk is then reattached at the appropriate new place giving a complete makeover. This is also termed as called Umbilicoplasty or Umbilical recreation. A complete tummy tuck is a procedure which requires admission for a few days.

Mini-tummy Tuck Mini Tummy Tuck involves the correction of a lower portion of the abdomen usually below the umbilicus) where the excess skin below the umbilicus is removed. The lower abdomen muscles are tightened at the same time. The umbilicus is not repositioned. The incision is in the lower abdomen just like cesarean section. Mini tummy tuck may be carried out as day care procedure.
