BEST CANDIDATES FOR TUMMY TUCK SURGERY

Are workouts not giving you the firm tummy you long for? If the extra fat or additional skin on your tummy has failed to shrink with exercise or diet, you may want to try a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty. Slide1The tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure that makes your abdomen firm and flat by taking out surplus fat and skin and tightening the abdominal muscles.

The tummy tuck is a major plastic surgery, so it is important to educate yourself about the procedure before making the decision to go under the knife. You should analyze your personal situation, your medical conditions, and your expectations of the procedure. Remember, a tummy tuck should be the last option after you have tried all other options to no avail. It is also important to note that a tummy tuck should not be used as a weight loss substitute.

To analyze your candidacy for a tummy tuck, you should start by making sure that you are doing it not to satisfy the desire of someone else, but for yourself. If you are in good physical condition and you haven’t experienced any major health problems in the last five years, you are possibly a good candidate for the procedure. In order to be an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck, you should have realistic goals and expectations for the procedure in addition to having a positive attitude.

You may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck if:

  • Factors like aging, genetics, surgical procedures, weight loss, or pregnancy have given you extra loose skin on your tummy.
  •  You do not smoke or are ready to quit smoking months before the procedure. It is important to understand that nicotine slows the healing process and makes you more susceptible to infection, inflammation, and other complications.
  • Your weight is stable. If you are slim and have excess skin or fat on your abdomen, you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck. If you are highly obese, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure.
  • You are in good physical condition to stand the surgery.
  • You have no plans for more children, if you are a woman. Remember, the muscles restored during a tummy tuck can disengage again when you get pregnant.

You may not be a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you are in poor health or if previous surgeries have created scars on your abdomen.

If you are a woman who wants to be pregnant in the future, you should delay a tummy tuck. Moreover, if you are planning to lose weight, you should postpone a tummy tuck until your weight has stabilized. Also, you should know that the tummy tuck is a surgical procedure, and it will create scarring on your body. If you don’t like scars, you should reconsider your decision to have the procedure.

As said earlier, the tummy tuck procedure is a last resort to get rid of unnecessary fat on your abdomen. You should try every other option like exercise and diet before undergoing surgery. Go for this option only if you’ve exhausted all other options, and if you feel that the shape of your abdomen is marring your self-confidence.

One of the common procedures that I perform is to create an hourglass shape. During this procedure, it is crucial to diminish your waistline as much as possible, but there are anatomical limitations. You need to understand that how much your waist is going to decrease shutterstock_401336872in size will depend on your anatomy. Some patients bring pictures of other patients who have very small waists and request the same waist size, but this may not be possible.

To understand why not everybody can get an extremely small waist, you need to have a clear idea of the anatomy of the abdominal wall. The abdominal wall is made up of muscle and the fascia that surrounds the muscle. On top of this muscle, there is subcutaneous tissue—in other words, the fat. When I perform the surgery, I do liposuction to diminish the thickness of this layer. When we reach the abdominal wall, it is like hitting a wall. You are not going to be able to suck the muscle out, so once we reach the abdominal wall, that is how small your waist is going to get.

However, we can certainly do other things to diminish your abdomen further, particularly in patients who have had babies. Suturing the abdominal wall at the midline to correct abdominal wall weakness essentially recreates and diminishes the waistline, by tightening the muscle and pulling the sides of the abdominal walls toward the midline. Let’s go back to the diagram; if we suture your abdominal wall, the transverse dimension of your abdomen will decrease.

By understanding your anatomy, the surgeon can determine before surgery how small your waist is going to be. You cannot pick and choose the waist size that you desire. The only thing the surgeon can do is make your waist as small as possible based on your anatomy and other factors.
