Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty Dubai
You may have some loose skin around your tummy if you’ve lost a lot of weight or had a baby. A tummy tuck (also known as an abdominoplasty) can give you a smaller, firmer stomach by removing extra skin and fat and tightening the abdominal muscles. It could help lessen the visibility of stretch marks.
There are several types of Tummy Tucks, so Dr. Leonard will go through your options with you to help you choose the one that is best for you. Dr. Leonard will make a cut across the lower belly if you’re getting a typical abdominoplasty. He will remove any extra skin from behind your belly button, use liposuction to remove any fat, tighten your muscles, and realign your belly button. In an extended abdominoplasty, your groin and lower back skin and fat are also removed. The location of your abdominal button won’t alter with a minor abdominoplasty.
BENEFITS OF A TUMMY TUCK/ABDOMINOPLASTY
A Tummy Tuck is often the procedure that newly pregnant women who seek a mommy makeover decide they need. Your abdomen’s extra skin can be removed during this surgery, up to 10 pounds of it. It might offer you a toned, well-defined stomach by tightening the muscles. Stretch marks can also be removed by a belly tuck, which is also routinely done to remove extra skin following weight reduction. This will undoubtedly boost your confidence if that’s what you’re going for.
Other reasons to decide on a tummy tuck include the following:
In addition to obesity, the size of a person’s waistline can predict numerous other health issues. Yes, a belly tuck has numerous favourable effects, but the health advantages can “outweigh” the aesthetic ones.
TYPES OF TUMMY TUCK/ABDOMINOPLASTY
The most frequent stomach tuck procedure is a standard or full abdominoplasty. The whole abdomen, from the pubic region to the ribs, is reshaped by Dr. Leonard after making a lengthy incision from hip to hip. They can also tighten, restore, and strengthen the underlying abdominal muscles while removing extra skin and fat. Dr. Leonard will position the scar such that it is covered by knickers at the bikini line. He could also need to realign or repair the navel, in which case the area around your belly button will also be scarred.
The mini abdominoplasty is appropriate for persons with minor skin excess. Under the belly button, Dr. Leonard trims away excess skin and fat from the abdomen. It works well to address localised fat, fullness, and skin that hangs over the pubic area. Dr. Leonard creates a smaller incision similar to the Caesarean section scar. A small tummy tuck typically results in a shorter recovery than a traditional treatment.
A minimally invasive treatment called endoscopic abdominoplasty can be used to tighten and mend the muscles in your abdominal wall. A tiny digital camera connected to a short, flexible tube that transmits clear images to a screen will be inserted through tiny incisions by Dr. Leonard. To strengthen your abdominal muscles and repair any separation, they will introduce surgical instruments that were especially created for the job.
Finally, Dr. Leonard will close the incision with stitches and apply dressings. The theatre staff will take you into the recovery area and monitor and support you as you wake up from the anaesthetic.
With the aid of a certified anaesthesiologist, the procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic in a facility that has received complete accreditation. Patients often need to stay in the hospital for one to two days after the operation, which can take anywhere from two to five hours.
A horizontal incision is normally created in the pubic area during the treatment; the precise location and length of the incision are determined by the quantity of skin to be removed and the patient’s abdominal anatomy. The final scar is precisely positioned to blend in with the patient’s swimwear and undergarments.
Drainage tubes are often retained in place for up to a week following surgery, and a compression garment needs to be worn for six weeks to aid in the healing process. Any bruising or swelling might go away after six weeks, but it could also last for several months. After the treatment, light exercise can be resumed after two to three weeks, but heavy lifting and strenuous activities should be avoided for up to eight weeks.
Weight loss, yo-yo dieting, or pregnancy are the typical causes of flabby skin on the abdomen. In more severe situations, the muscles are strained and there may be unsightly, overhanging folds of skin that won’t bounce back into form. In some cases, the problem may just be slack, wrinkled skin that has lost its elasticity.
Excess, sagging skin around the stomach (abdomen) area can be a result of pregnancy, weight reduction, and the ageing process. Exercise or non-invasive procedures cannot eliminate this extra skin. The solution is an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck (mini tummy tuck), which will give you a flatter, firmer abdomen.
