What are a Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty and its benefits?

A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the shape and appearance of the abdomen. A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen. The connective tissue (fascia) of the abdomen is also usually tightened with sutures. Then rearrange the rest of the skin to create a tighter look.

Benefits of Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty are:

  • Excess belly fat loss
  • Tighter abs
  • Better posture
  • Young body recovery

How does the Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty procedure work?

The first stage of the tummy tuck is an incision in the abdomen below the navel. The length of the incision depends on how much skin is removed.AIG Tummy Tuck Doctors enter the second stage by separating and lifting the abdominal skin from the navel, repositioning and fixing the muscles. After that, in the final stage of the surgery, excess skin is removed while the skin is stretched down, the navel is put back, and finally, the skin is smoothed to complete the abdominal tuck or tummy tuck.

There isn’t so much that you need to do on your end when dealing with one of the best tummy tuck clinics in Dubai. Here’s how to prepare for tummy tuck in Dubai:

  • Review medical history

Your doctor will inquire about your present and past medical history during your initial consultation. Talk about your current medication or previous surgeries that you’ve had. 

It will also be prudent to speak with your doctor about any allergies that you may have towards particular medications. All this will enable your doctor to advise you if you’re an ideal candidate for tummy tuck.

  • Physical examinations

Your doctor will thereafter conduct a physical examination on your body to help determine the ideal tummy tuck options for you. They might even take pictures of your abdomen for medical records.

  • Discuss your expectations 

Always be ready to let your doctor know exactly why you want to get a tummy tuck and what you expect to be the final results. Don’t worry though, as your doctor will guide you through the whole procedure, including the options available.

This surgery can take from one to five hours. You may need to spend the night in the hospital, depending on your situation. You will be given general anesthesia, which will put you to sleep for the duration of the operation.

In most cases, a full abdominoplasty involves:

  • The medical practitioner makes a horizontal, curved incision that goes from one hip to the other near the pubic hairline.
  • The skin and fatty tissue are lifted from the underlying tissue.
  • Separated abdominal muscles are stitched and tightened by the medical practitioner.
  • Fat is removed from the body.
  • Extra skin is removed.
  • The navel is repositioned.
  • Stitches, tape, or clips are used to close the wounds.

Healing after tummy tuck in Dubai solely depends on the procedure done. Fleur-de-lis and extended tummy tucks take more time for one to heal. On the other hand, a mini tummy tuck and full tummy tuck should expect to engage in normal light activities within a week or two after the procedure. 

Nevertheless, it will take a few weeks for you to comfortably engage in strenuous activities. You need to wait for at least 10 to 12 weeks before engaging in any activity that would exert force on the stitches.

Your tummy tuck surgeon in Dubai will recommend some blood-thinning medicine to help avoid the risk of clotting. You’ll also be provided with an exercise pattern that you will follow for at least 6 weeks after the procedure.
