DRAINLESS Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A full tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces and reshapes the abdomen. This is achieved by removing excess skin and fatty tissue in the lower abdomen, by tightening and realigning the central abdominal muscles and by repositioning the belly button.
A tummy tuck is a procedure that can instantly and dramatically improve and slenderize a woman’s figure, creating a flatter and firmer abdomen along with a slimmer waistline. A tummy tuck is oftentimes performed in conjunction with liposuction of the flanks or “muffin tops,” located just above the buttock region. This additional procedure completely contours a women’s trunk.
A mini tummy tuck procedure is ideal for women with limited excess skin and fatty tissue along with abdominal wall weakness and bulging of the lower abdomen only. This procedure is similar to a full tummy tuck. However, it only involves the lower half of the abdomen and there is no repositioning of the belly button. The surgical incision is not much longer than a C-Section scar, and the recovery period is shortened.
The majority of women interested in an abdominoplasty procedure are those who have had children and/or who have experienced notable weight gain or loss. These women have excess and stretched out sagging skin, excess fatty deposits that are difficult to get rid of, and an abdominal bulge that will not reduce in size no matter how dedicated they are to doing repetitive abdominal exercises.
