The effects of sudden weight loss or pregnancy can have a profound influence on your body and the body part which gets most affected by all this your stomach. Our stomach stores more fat than any other body part and it is very difficult to lose all that fat.
Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a method which allows you to have a flat and firm stomach after all the excess skin and fat is surgically removed which tightens muscles in your abdominal wall. . At Care Well Medical Center for Holistic health and plastic surgery we go to great lengths to assess the patients physical condition because if they choose for extensive abdominoplasty procedure they must be physically be fit for the procedure.
At our clinic we do not take chances. If the person is young and healthy it is possible the doctor may just ask to run couple of tests just for precaution. But when people reach middle age we have to analyze their entire medical history and then ask them to run tests.
At our clinic the following types of abdominoplasty/tummy tuck procedures are done
The surgeon will make a incision in your abdomen from hipbone to hipbone and then sculpt the skin, tissue, and muscle. This surgery will involve moving your belly button from the surrounding skin and using liposuction to reduce fat.
This is the very latest in stomach contouring where the surgeon is able to give you a flat abdomen and waistline by tightening the muscles vertically and horizontally. This procedure is only performed by a skilled plastic surgeon and the surgery can last from four to five hours.
This procedure is perfect for people who have excess fat deposits below the navel. It is quite likely the surgeon will not move your belly button and it takes about two hours to finish the surgery but sometimes longer because it differs from patient to patient.
In extended abdominoplasty the surgeon make incision which runs from the posterior axillary line which enables them to do abdominal contouring and smoothing the contour of the upper lateral thigh.
