What is Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a surgical procedure to remove excess belly fat, skin, or muscle that is contributing to an unappealing profile. It removes the unwanted fat along with lifting the abdominal skin and repairing the weakened muscles in the area. If additional fat is left in other areas of the abdomen, liposuction is carried out along with abdominoplasty. By tightening the muscles underneath the skin, tummy tuck surgery provides a flat profile that cannot be easily obtained with a normal diet or exercise. In some cases, tummy tuck also helps enhance waist narrowing. As opposed to what some commercial products such as tummy tuck belts suggest, there is no efficient non-surgical way to get rid of the excess skin and fat.

How is Tummy Tuck done?

The surgery can remove excess fat from almost the entire abdomen area (complete abdominoplasty) or merely the fat that is below the navel area (mini/partial tummy tuck). If the plastic surgeon decides that you need a complete abdominoplasty, he or she will make a horizontal incision somewhere between the pubic hair area and your bellybutton. Then, excess fat and skin are removed from the stomach and the weakened muscles are repaired. He or she might also move your belly button by making an additional incision around the navel to have access to the underneath fat. You may need to have drainage attached to the surgical area after the complete procedure. 

Post-operatively, the surgeon suggests 1-3 days of hospital stay. You can leave Iran in a couple of weeks but consult with your surgeon beforehand. If your job is not physically demanding, you can get back in 2 or 3 weeks. Otherwise, you should take time off work for more weeks. It is recommended that you do not get back to sever exercises in under 6 weeks.

Mini abdominoplasty 

When the patient is suffering from minor belly fat, a mini-abdominoplasty is a more efficient, less invasive option. In this procedure, the same horizontal incision is made from one hipbone to another. However, the plastic surgeon doesn't need to make any alterations to your belly button. A mini tummy tuck is also known as partial tummy tuck and could be performed in under 2 hours.

Many patients are concerned about the initial results. At first, all the swelling and bruises around the incision could obscure the result of the surgery. After the redness is diminished, the scar will fade away to some extent but not entirely. A number of studies report some patients may experience numbness in the abdominal area for months after the surgery.

Should I get a tummy tuck surgery?

Tummy tuck surgery helps you achieve a flat stomach that fits in your favorite shirt. Sometimes, no matter how many diets you go on or which strenuous exercise you try, that excess belly fat doesn't seem to go away. Well, abdominoplasty is the answer to your prayers. Factors such as aging, heredity reasons, and previous pregnancies can lead to weakened stomach muscles and increase the amount of fat in the abdomen area. With a tummy tuck, you can fight these aftereffects.

However,abdominoplasty is not a weight-loss procedure. If you are someone who is overweight, you should lose some weight before undergoing abdominoplasty; because tummy tuck results might be affected by the weight-loss process. Also, if you are likely to get pregnant in the future, you should consider postponing the surgery to at least a year after the childbirth. In a nutshell, abdominoplasty surgery is recommended for people older than 18, with a BMI of about 30 who are otherwise healthy and are not planning on getting pregnant in the future.
