If you’ve worked hard to lose weight, you may be dismayed to find that your abdominal skin has been left stretched and saggy – and it feels like there’s nothing you can do to change it. This is the cosmetic procedure abdominoplasty comes in.
Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck reshapes your abdomen and improves its appearance, restoring your natural, attractive shape. It involves removing excess fat and skin from the abdomen and tightening the connective tissue (fascia) with stitches to give the tummy area that fresh and toned look you desire.
So choose tummy tuck surgery in Dubai to remove loose skin around your abdomen, strengthen weak abdominal walls or improve abdominal shape.
When is a tummy tuck recommended?
While you may have worked hard to shed excess weight, the sagging skin that remains can make you feel like your efforts were for nothing. Tummy tuck surgery is the solution to get rid of flabby skin due to excessive weight loss, pregnancy, or aging.
Tummy tuck surgery in Dubai is a popular cosmetic procedure for both men and women, helping them to achieve their desired shape. If you’ve lost a significant amount of weight, you may find that loose, flabby skin is left around the belly button. This means that fat can redeposit in a thick layer around the waist, undoing all your hard work. Tummy tuck removes the excess skin, boosting your confidence and supporting you to continue and sustain your weight loss goals.
Who might choose a tummy tuck?
You might opt for a tummy tuck for one of the following reasons:
- Significant weight loss
- C-section or previous abdominal surgery
- Body type
Note that your doctor may advise you against a tummy tuck if you:
- Are planning future weight loss
- Are planning a future pregnancy
- Have a condition like heart disease or diabetes
- Have a body mass index of more than 30
- Smoke tobacco
- Have had previous abdominal surgery, leaving scar tissue
Types of tummy tuck
There are two types of a tummy tuck: full and partial.
The surgeon will first assess your body and abdomen to recommend the best option for you. Partial abdominoplasty is a customised tummy tuck procedure in which the excess fat from below the belly button is eliminated and the area is toned.
In full abdominoplasty, the surgeon makes multiple incisions to remove excess fat deposits from both above and below the belly button. Sometimes abdominoplasty is also accompanied by liposuction.
