The emergence of social media has led people to become conscious of how they look. It has got them thinking about their physique, skin, and appearance more than ever. They have started trying too hard to achieve the perfect Instragrammable picture. This has resulted in an increase in cosmetic procedures globally. From dental procedures such as implants and whitening treatments to fillers and microdermabrasion, the cosmetic industry is booming.
One popular cosmetic procedure is abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck. Although it helps the person getting more toned, it is not a weight-loss option. The extra fat is removed along with the tightening of muscles during a conventional tummy tuck. Both men and women, with weight issues, can opt for a tummy tuck while following a strict exercise regimen and healthy diet. Also, tummy tucks are popular in new mothers who want to get rid of their loose skin and shape their abdominal muscles.
There are different types of tummy tuck surgery available. Let’s break it down so you can get an idea of which type shall suit you best:
The Standard Tummy Tuck
This is the most common tummy tuck procedure that focuses on shaping the lower abdominal area. Women who have gone through childbirth and pregnancy are the common candidates for this surgery. The surgeon makes an incision above the pubic area below the belly button. This is usually hip to hip. This allows them to remove all fatty tissue and excess skin.
Then, with liposuction, they contour the lower abdominal area to give the patient a flattering look. They also tighten the abdominal muscles. In some cases, the surgeon may also have to reposition the belly button for a natural look.
The Mini Tummy Tuck
In mini tummy tuck, only a small amount of excess skin or fatty tissue is removed below the belly button. It is a less invasive procedure. This is great for a person whose diet and exercise efforts have left him with a small area of pooch right below the belly button.
The incision is much smaller in the case of a mini tummy tuck. It is made above the pubic area and there is no need for the belly button to be repositioned. The scarring is also limited.
The Extended Tummy Tuck
This type of Dubai tummy tuck is suitable for those who are looking to get a major amount of fatty tissue or skin removed from their lower abdominal area. Also, from the hip or lower back ‘love handle’ regions.
It is a more invasive procedure in which the surgeon makes a longer incision above the pubic area, the entire width of the abdominal area that goes back of each hip. In this procedure, they also remove the belly button and reposition it to look normal.
Then, with the help of liposuction, the surgeon removes excess skin and fatty tissue for a contoured physique. At the same time, they also tighten abdominal muscles. Since this procedure is more invasive, a night has to be spent at the hospital for recovery. Using a bathing suit or undergarments can help hide the incision.
This surgical procedure happens to be a variation of abdominoplasty that focuses on those patients who shed a significant amount of weight. Patients that have lost 100 or more pounds have excess loose skin after bariatric surgery – called an apron. It’s a more complex abdominoplasty in which the surgeon removes a substantial amount of tissue.
In this surgery, the surgeon makes an incision above the pubic area from hip to hip. However, this surgery may not always affect the belly button and abdominal muscles. During the surgery, the surgeon removes the excess folds of loose skin. Sometimes, the patient may also need to undergo microsurgery to achieve life-changing results.
The Reverse Tummy Tuck
This surgery involves the upper portion of the midsection, just below the breasts. Sometimes, people can have a flat and toned lower abdominal area. But the upper torso has extra fatty tissue or loose skin.
In a reverse tummy tuck, the surgeon makes a single long incision or two small ones in the breast folds or underneath the breasts. Then, they remove the excess skin and fat that is present in the upper torso. For those seeking an overall midsection makeover, this procedure is great. One can also get this procedure along with breast enhancement or augmentation as the placement of the incision allows for these cosmetic procedures. This incision leaves a scar, but you can hide it with a bra.
