Which are the best stomach tightening procedures? - Dr. Srikanth V

That depends on the body

That depends on the body type that you have. If you have a very small excess of tummy, then the procedure is very different, if you have a moderate excess, the procedure is different and if you have a large excess of stomach, then the procedure is entirely different. Typically if you are married or if you are unmarried. The procedures are entirely different, to lost out a few procedures, we have liposuction, we have mini tummy tuck, we have full tummy tuck, we have a tummy tuck along with liposuction. When do we do liposuction? Usually we do in unmarried people or in people who are yet to start their family or their pregnancy, if they feel that their stomach is larger in excess, then liposuction will help them to tighten their skin and give you a firm looking abdomen. Or if there is a slight excess of skin, then you can go for a mini abdominoplasty or a mini tummy tuck. if there is a lot more excess of skin or who had a pregnancy or after pregnancy , your stomach has not shrunk back to its original shape or if it is associated with hernia, then you need to go for a full tummy tuck, where in the excess fat, the excess skin and the stomach muscles are tightened and in case the stomach muscles are not tightened you have to put a synthetic mesh to tighten your stomach so that you get a nice and flat stomach.

Live Surgery: What is an Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) and Rectus Plication: Muscle Tightening

176 636 views | 31 May. 2013

This is a surgical video

This is a surgical video in which I show a surgical example of a Abdominoplasty and Rectus Plication. So what is an abdominoplasty? Its the surgical removal of excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen. Removing this skin and fat is important for improving the abdominal appearance. However just as important is performing the rectus plication. What is a Rectus Plication? It is tightening / eliminating the space between the muscles. By placing sutures the abdominal wall tightens on the inside and greatly improves the contour of the abdominal wall. I prefer to use interrupted sutures in case one of the sutures breaks or pulls through the fascia. Many surgeons use a running stitch from top to bottom however if the knot breaks or unwinds then the entire plication may come apart. When this happens the patient can have bleeding or end up with abdominal bulge that they were hoping to eliminate. Individual suturing takes significantly more time (30min) however may result in a more stable plication until healing occurs.

See my abdominoplasty page for additional information:

I was fine with everything else but then when I saw the belly button I was like “AYO HOLD UP.”

Sonia Ckm

Doc is it possible to do tummy tuck during c section .. I feel very tired coz of my tummy... Kindly suggest


I don’t like how the side or hip after the tummy tuck look ?

Ofelia Alfaro

I dont want surgery. I rather do exercises

J.-Army S.

I'm ready to have a procedure done. After I deliver with my fourth baby by the end of March, I know i would have to wait a couple months to recover from my c section. It's due time I get my body back. I love myself of course no matter how big i am. But I also want to stay healthy and live longer for my kids. As much as I love being a big momma bear for my little ones when they sleep with me. I want to exercise before having to see a consultant for one tummy tuck and then be ready to be active again. YaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSS ??

Amitabh Thacoor

As usual, excellent videos Dr McClelland! I was looking for videos on rectus plication techniques for a while, until I saw yours! Thanks!

Livid Horizon

Imagine Anastasia awareness during this fuckkk

Elena Marie

Wow I never imagined how the procedure was done, Amazing results

Alpha Fort

i was wondering whether this procedure can be done in younger ppl (about 20 to 30), and also about the condition of the abs if the person did intense workouts after full post op recovery - will the appearance be natural (i.e., the six - pack) or would the appearance be affected by the earlier surgery?


Wow this looks like an extremely well done surgery from my view. I have a friend that has this much visceral fat on her belly like this lady , She is considering having this surgery but need a ballpark figure of how much money it will cost. Can you help me with some information on this cost? I appreciate any information you can give me even a ballpark figure is fine. Thank you so much

Mrs Magaña

Where are you located Dr? The website you have in your description says it's invalid


Is it possible for the suture to tear/break? what type of material is the suture? Does the sutures stay inside for indefinite?

Asif Khan

This type of surgery take alot of time for healing and some time cause a severe infection

Miss Chloe Carly it’s me a YouTube about doing more so I have a good day and I’m 60 years old walking to school for teaching grade 5


The bb scar isn't concealed well.

Lisa Steeples

I have an appointment on 10-9 to see the surgeon. Hoping for some skin off my breasts. I have lost 88 pounds and have only 1 leg. It will be so much easier to get around. I can't wait.

Mary Dicerni

Mine is worse... and higher as well. with the abdominal wall seemingly sitting up high pushing the breasts up, but not able to go up any further. I am 84 and it was made much worse by a colonoscopy I did not need, and now no one will help me find a proper surgeon. It happened at age 75.. when I went to see about a hernia popped up on my chest. Is there a surgeon who uses pig skin for a patch? There is one in Toronto, but no one will allow me to see him. Why are we not allowed to have surgery at 84? They just delay everything ..not to have to do it. Mary

Is it bad to get a tt with muscle repair if i have mild cystocele rectocele and uterine prolapse

Crystal_ MeMoRiEs

Omg its soo scary


I have the same body. Do you think it’s possible to get rid of all the loose skin by working out and dieting?? I really want to know because I e been trying for 4 years now and I want to get extremely toned and flat belly.

maddie roberts

wait i didnt realize it would make that big a difference


Doctor Thomas :) Would you advise patients to remove the fat naturally through being in a negative energy balance and improving lifestyle ? Won't any and all forms of surgery tend to weaken our immune system in some way ?

Hyoyeon's Lover

Kris jenner brought me here

Collette Harvey

Can I ask why the patient didn’t have contouring liposuction? Was that her choice ? Or did you advise against it ? I’m booked in for a tummy tuck, muscle repair and liposuction next month .. very nervous about the recovery from the muscle repair more than anything

Hekidonmuya Salisburry

Hysterectomy is the suggestion of the family doctor to me in order that the 3 big fibroids in my own uterus are taken away. Sticking to this fibroids , Sυnu Shocking Guide (go ogle it) has enabled me to lessen 80% of my fibroid tumors. I`m having a normal menstrual cycle right now and the pain whenever I`m having it is manageable to none.

Chante Hayward

My God, I never realised just how much trauma is inflicted during this procedure. I didn't think it was so... Invasive... ? excellent information and demonstrate. ???

Makina Estabrook

I have 7 kids and wont be having anymore. My stomach issue wont go away even with a diet and exercise. Last 5 years after I had my last 2 babies, my self esteem is nothing like it used to. I hate my stomach so much its controlling every day. I even hate myself I wont go out do to my stomach, I'm severely depressed EVERY SINGLE DAY. Its actually ruining my life. I cant even do things with my husband to make him happy cause I'm insecure and always covering up. I day dream nearly every single day of having a tummy tuck maybe even a mommy make over. But I'll never be able to afford either one. I pray for miracle to happen. I want to feel better about myself and not let it control me anymore. I would be set free


Do some patients come to you with lower and mid back pain, from the diastasi recti, before repair?

Sam Sako

Is the scar going to go away ?

I just had this exact procedure done a week ago and now realize why I was in so much pain the first five days. Holy shit my whole upper belly was lifted up separating skin from muscle with a big metal thing to keep it open and then muscles sewn tight, cut hip to hip , extra skin cut off, belly button relocated and stitched all the way across. Plus I had lipo too! This is major surgery and so happy to see doctor explaining everything involved.

Mithee Hesan

Fasinating!!! I had a tummy tuck done and it was the best decision I made!!! Surgery and having babies destroyed my stomach. My advice, do your research, make sure the doctor is board certified. DONT pick a Doctor based on price, cheapest is not better. Thank you for the video, you are truly talented!!!

Luci noel
