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.
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.
