A Tummy Tuck?
Also referred to as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck surgery is a safe and effective surgery which aims at tightening the abdominal muscles, removing the stretch marks and contouring the abdominal area to give a pleasing, shapely appearance.
A tummy can be bulging and out of shape due to various reasons. Some of them involve:
- Pregnancy: A woman’s body undergoes tremendous changes during pregnancy. The abdominal area is affected drastically as the muscles stretch in order to accommodate the growing baby. After delivery, the loosened muscles and skin stay drooping. It becomes difficult to achieve pre-pregnancy tautness in such situations.
- Ageing: Loss of elasticity and firmness of skin in one of the most prominent characteristics that accompanies age; and the mid section is not an exception to this. Aging generally results in a flabby and rotund abdomen which affects the once youthful appearance of an individual.
- Excessive weight loss: A significant change in the weight of a person also results in a drooping and hanging skin around the abdomen. Even when one performs vigorous exercise, this skin and extra fat refuse to budge. This hampers the actual results of the weight loss as the hanging skin does not look appealing and attractive. This might affect the self confidence of the person.
An unshapely abdomen due to these and various other reasons can be corrected through a tummy tuck surgery. Dr Santosh Bhatia first analyzes the issue at hand and then decides upon the type of the surgery that one needs to undergo. He believes that each case is different,and this is the reason the tummy tuck surgery needs to be tailored according to every individual’s need.
