Tummy Tuck Dubai | 20 May 2022

Over the years, celebrity influence and social media culture have convinced us that the perfect body is a flat belly. Of course, staying fit is more important than having rock-solid abs and washboard abs, but for some, a coveted flat stomach can be achieved with just a little shape, tone, and tone.

The abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck” procedure, creates a flatter, firmer abdomen by removing excess fat and skin, and tightening the abdominal muscles. You are a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you are at a stable weight and are physically healthy, you have realistic expectations, and ideally you do not smoke.

Anatomy of the abdomen

The abdominal wall consists of skin, fat, and muscle. The rectus abdominis muscles, which form the “six pack” of muscles on the abdomen, are covered by a firm sheath called the rectus fascia. This fascial layer frequently weakens and stretches out with pregnancy and weight gain. As a result, once a patient loses weight or has her children, she may be left with laxity of the abdominal wall. During surgery , the fascial layer over the rectus abdominis muscles is tightened, and the excess skin and fat are removed.

Surgery steps

A tummy tuck is a horizontal incision in the lower abdomen within the bikini area. for patients who have had a previous cesarean section, the incision can be made in the same location and extended to both sides. The rectus muscles of the abdomen are tightened, and excess skin and fat are trimmed and re-covered. 

Most tummy tucks require repositioning of the umbilicus or umbilicus through a second incision. a “mini” tummy tuck uses only a limited horizontal bikini incision to remove fat and skin and tighten the lower abdominal muscles without repositioning the belly button. The resulting scar is usually low on the abdomen and can therefore be hidden in most swimsuits and clothing. in both techniques, small drains are placed.

Additional procedures

Liposuction is sometimes performed in conjunction with tummy tuck surgery to contour the flanks. Some patients wish to undergo simultaneous breast surgery to lift, add volume, or both. The combination of tummy tuck surgery and breast augmentation or lift surgery is commonly referred to as a “mommy makeover” procedure.

Additional procedures incur additional operating time, anaesthesia, and surgical risks.

Surgery and anaesthesia

The surgery lasts 3-4 hours and is performed under general anaesthesia. Many patients worry about the risk of general anaesthesia, but it is very safe, and it assures that you will be completely comfortable during surgery. Before surgery you will be required to obtain medical photographs, blood tests, and in some cases preoperative clearance.
