To look better - it's not luck, it's a decision!
Small or partial tummy tuck is performed to correct stomach part and diastasis part below the navel. Navel is not moved during this correction.
Full tummy tuck is performed from ribs to pubis area. Excess skin and fat tissue is removed during surgery, the front abdominal wall is rebuilt, muscles are reinforced, diastasis is removed together with navel or white hernia lines by creating “an internal corset”.
In what cases abdominoplasty is suitable?
Tummy tuck is suitable for cases when the front abdominal wall is damaged after sudden weight changes – muscles are stretched, a diastasis has formed (a space between muscles, which causes hernia and is unable to hold the stomach together), as well as in cases of excess skin, torn low quality and rigid skin, excess fat tissue.
Abdominoplasty can be combined with liposuction on the sides to create a more pronounced waist area.
Liposuction is a fat removal procedure during which fat is removed from particular areas of the body, for example, stomach, hips, thighs, arms or neck.
Fat suction is not a weight correction method or an alternative to weight loss.
In what cases liposuction is suitable?
This procedure is suitable for people with normal or constant weight with body areas with fat tissue accumulations.
Fat cells multiply until puberty, and afterwards their number remains constant, but the size changes. Liposuction is an only way to remove billions of fat cells. After the removal of excess fat, a normal number of cells remains in the area, however, the fat cell size may increase due to weight increase, but it will remain proportional in all of the body – silhouette and shape will remain unchanged.
Most common liposuction areas for men – stomach, sides above the waist, chin area, breasts. Liposuction allows to correct scarring and body defects.
Procedure results become visible approximately after 1.5 months. Skin quality is important for a good liposuction result.
This correction type is usually performed after rapid weight changes, which has caused large volumes of sagging skin.
To perform this surgery the goal weight must be achieved and it must be stable for at least 6 months.
It is important to know that visible scars remain after this surgery. With time scars become less noticeable, but will still remain visible.
The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia.
