What Is a Tummy Tuck?
The tummy tuck procedure involves the trimming of excess skin and fat from a patient’s abdomen allowing the patient to have a slim, fit-looking stomach that is free of sagging skin. The tummy tuck also involves surgical tightening of the abdominal muscles through suturing. This procedure is sometimes performed along with liposuction.
How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
When a tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty is performed a plastic surgeon will first make an incision from hip to hip along a patient’s bikini line. The plastic surgeon will then free the navel from the skin around it and detach the patient’s skin from the abdomen.
After the abdominal muscles and fascia are exposed the surgeon will move and tighten them by applying sutures. The skin is then stretched back over the muscles, excess skin and fat is trimmed and removed, and everything is stitched into place to heal. The plastic surgeon will reconstruct the skin around the navel area to recreate a natural-looking belly button as well.
