What do you see when you picture a perfect body? Every 8 out 0f 10 people will quickly imagine someone with a flat and perfectly toned stomach. People of all shapes and sizes who have appropriately flat stomachs are usually considered to be the best looking of people. Some are born with their great abs, most sweat all years long at the gym and they eat low calorie foods, but some have a different a method. They get a good old tummy tuck from their local plastic surgeon. Most of these surgeries are undetectable to the untrained eye, but believe me when I tell you that people are getting this surgery done and it is not the minority of society.
So what exactly is a tummy tuck? The medical name for the procedure is known as abdominoplasty
and there are actually two types of procedure that you can choose to have. The first is partial or mini abdominoplasty. It is usually done on people who happen to have their fat deposits below their navel area. During this surgery the plastic surgeon will probably not feel inclined to move the patient’s belly button.
The surgeon will only remove a little bit of the excess fat and then tighten the skin resulting in a flat stomach.
This form of abdominoplasty only takes about two hours to complete depending on the patient’s condition. The other tummy tuck is known as complete abdominoplasty, during this surgery the surgeon will cut the patient’s abdomen from one hipbone to the other and then they will contour the skin, tissue, and the muscles as requested by the patient.
With this surgery, the patient’s belly button will be moved and they might have to left with drainage tubes under their skin for a few days.
Abdominoplasty is not recommended for everyone. It is suitable for both men and women; no gender is excluded from the possibility of having the surgery. One thing that is important to keep in mind if you are a woman considering the surgery is that you should probably only have the surgery done when you are finished having children.
The surgery is mostly beneficial to women who have had several pregnancies or people who have recovered from having obesity. The abdominoplasty surgery can even be performed with liposuction.
