It does this by removing excess skin and fat, and consolidating the abdominal muscle wall. A lot of the issues that make abdominoplasty a good choice have effects in other parts of the body, and consequently it’s not unusual for patients to request it to be performed alongside breast augmentation and lift or laser liposuction treatments. Generally, however, it’s done as a standalone operation for the purposes of simultaneously achieving a slimmer profile and smooth, tight, healthy skin on the stomach and abdomen.
The high value placed on slimness and great skin in today’s world makes abdominoplasty a very popular choice, as it can achieve amazingly transformative results with minimal surgery. At Australia Cosmetic Clinics, however, we would like to stress that abdominoplasties are most important when it comes to solving specific issues. While almost anyone can benefit aesthetically from a tighter stomach and thinner figure, the most striking results are always in situations where the patient was previously experiencing flaccid skin, a protruding abdomen or build-up of fatty tissue. Abdominoplasties can give almost anyone a flatter belly and younger-looking skin, but the most suitable candidates are experiencing one or more of the following issues:
During the initial consultation your surgeon will inform you of all advantages, drawbacks and potential complications involved with abdominal tucks, but in particular they’ll ask about any future plans for pregnancies or weight loss. This is because abdominoplasties have the potential to interfere with these things. In general, the perfect time for a tummy tuck is after you’ve finished having children or pursuing weight loss regimes. Here, abdominoplasties can essentially put the finishing touches on your body by removing the excess flab and fat deposits that won’t go away with traditional means.
Because there are a lot of individual factors in play, not everyone will get the same results from an abdominoplasty. The only way to get a clear picture of how it will help you is by having a consultation session with an expert cosmetic surgeon.
Any abdominoplasty will involve at least one incision, but certain cases may require more. All, however, utilise a similar process.
The entire operation takes anywhere from 2-3 hours, and your anaesthetist will be next to you the entire time to make sure you safely sleep through it. Recovery times vary largely depending on the patient and the surgical parameters, but you will enjoy normal walking and movement within five days, even after the most extensive abdominoplasty.
A common variation of this surgery is known as a mini-tuck or partial abdominoplasty. This is employed when the amount of loose skin is minimal and all excess fat deposits are situated below the navel. The process is similar, but it can be done with just one small incision and localised rather than general anaesthetic.
The first thing to do is make sure you know all the ins and outs of the operation, and have your needs assessed by an expert. Call 1300 559 848 or contact us online to speak with a professional. They’ll help you take the next steps towards a slimmer, fitter, happier and healthier body.
