- Before & After
A tummy tuck, scientifically referred to as abdominoplasty, is a common cosmetic surgery procedure that can reduce and reshape the stomach area. The procedure is performed with a scalpel and the plastic surgeon makes at least two extensive incisions (one vertical and the other horizontal) plus a small cut around the navel, removing saggy skin and adipose tissues from the area. The muscles are also sutured, resulting in tighter and firmer looking abs. The purpose of the procedure is to obtain a slimmer appearance of the core region. The recovery period is up to six weeks. However, the scars will mature within one year. The typical results of a tummy tuck may be noticeable after the side effects of the surgery subside. The patient will have slimmer and firmer abs. The scars are permanent and visible, even if they fade after the surgery. Patients that want to avoid scarring can opt for less invasive treatments such as liposuction. The main advantage of a tummy tuck over liposuction is the reshaping of the abdominal wall muscles, which may greatly influence the overall appearance of the abdomen. The tummy tuck may last for life, however, if the patient gains weight, the pounds are likely be seen in the stomach area.
