Are you tired of trying various exercises, but find no change in the size of your waist? Is there are a lot of fat and extra skin accumulated around your stomach? Then you must visit your wellness or healthcare expert to receive advice for surgical treatment.
The surgery to help you get your stomach in shape is called Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty.
The price of treatment is very affordable in India. It starts from USD 3,000 and can go high depending upon factors like:
Sometimes, the doctors perform the treatment not only for the abdomen, but they also include thighs and hips. It may highly increase the cost of the procedure. However, if you compare it to the price of surgery in other countries, then it is four times less in India.
Abdominoplasty refers to the process of removing unwanted fat & extra skin around your abdomen and tightening all the muscles to the abdominal wall to provide the perfect shape to the body. The flattening of the abdomen or tummy tuck is different from liposuction. However, surgeons opt for liposuction along with the abdominoplasty, in case it is not possible to achieve the desired results with abdominoplasty alone.
Abdominoplasty is a suitable procedure for both men and women. The patient must be fit and in good health to undergo surgery without having any severe health disorders. It is beneficial for women who are struggling to regain their shape post-pregnancy. Doctors have found satisfactory results of Abdominoplasty for people who have shed several pounds but have loose skin and fat surrounding their lower abdomen. One who is planning to lose weight, should not opt for abdominoplasty. It is the last option for people who have tried every possible way of losing weight but have not received any fruitful results. Also, it is not advisable for a pregnant woman.
Preparations Before the Surgery: The doctor may ask the patient to take up with specific tests. It may include blood tests and other general physician tests to know about the physical and mental health of the patient. If you are addicted to smoking and alcohol, your doctor will ask you to quit the habit for a minimum of two weeks before and for two weeks after the surgery. However, you may have to quit smoking all through your life to avoid the adverse consequences of the treatment. You must not make any drastic changes in your diet; a healthy diet is a must before the surgery. The patient must share the entire medical history with the doctor before the surgery. Also, let him know about the medications if any, he may ask you to stop the intake of certain medicines. Ask your friend or family to accompany you to the hospital to take care of you after the surgery and help you reach back home safely. During the Surgery: The patient is generally put to unconsciousness using general anaesthesia. Then, as per the body analysis of the patient, the doctor may choose the best possible abdominoplasty out of the two different types. Partial or Mini Abdominoplasty: If the fat deposit in a person is below the navel, the doctor opts for a mini abdominoplasty. In this process, the doctor does not remove the belly button of the patient, and it takes around 2 to 3 hours to complete the surgery. The time taken to complete the operation may vary from one patient to another. Complete Abdominoplasty: In this method of abdominoplasty, the surgeon makes a large incision in the patient, starting from hip bone to hip bone. The surgeon then gains access to your skin, tissues and muscles as per the requirement. He will reshape your body by removing the extra fat and skin from your abdomen. This process of Abdominoplasty is essential when there's an accumulation of fat throughout your abdomen, including the lower and upper abdomen. It may involve moving your belly button. The doctors may put drainage tubes under your skin for a few days. After the Surgery: There are not many complications that associate with the surgery. The surgeon will keep you under observation for 24 hours and then will discharge you depending upon your condition. Your wellness coach will guide you on your physical activities, exercises and diet though you will have to be on bed rest until you recover and follow the liquid diet. It is essential to follow the instructions to attain the desired results from the surgery.
There can be certain complications after abdominoplasty, but those are temporary. Your surgeon will prescribe you drugs and medicines to overcome those side-effects. It generally includes pain, swelling, numbness, tiredness, dizziness and bruising. In case the patient has poor blood circulation, there can be some severe and rarer risks like: Infection Blood clotting Diabetes Bleeding under the flap of the skin Heart Disease Lung Disease and Liver Disease etc Sometimes, it is possible that the patient does not receive the expected results and have to undergo the treatment once again. If the surgeon opts for liposuction along with tummy tuck, there can be significant scars on the body of the patient. These scars may fade, but they will never subside. The doctor may prescribe ointments and scar removal creams, but the results depend on your skin type and other surgical conditions.
