Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
The tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases weakened or separated muscles creating a smoother and firmer abdominal profile is repaired.
Many of us struggle to have a flat and well-toned abdomen through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods fail our goals. Even some people with normal body weight and shapely can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and hanging. Among the most common causes of this are:
• significant weight fluctuations
• previous surgeries
Abdominoplasty is not the same as liposuction, which is a way to extract fat. Abdominoplasty combined with liposuction to remove small clusters of fat that are not removed by thinning.
In obese patients is recommended, whenever possible, prior weight loss by controlling the endocrinologist or a nutritionist. Due to the large expanse of sweeping and dimensions of the flap that normally practiced in this type of intervention is important for patients to stop smoking do so for about two weeks before the operation. The reason for this is that the snuff causes impaired microcirculation may severely compromise the final result.
Consider that the choice of technique is determined by the type of structure of the patient and the particularities of each abdomen.
