Facts About Adominoplasty Procedures

Sep 3, 2008
I have often wanted a flawless toned tummy, one that I can feel confident in showing off wearing smaller fitted tops and perhaps with a gap to show off my flattering figure. Unfortunately this does not come as easily as I would like as it requires a very strict diet, an equally strict exercise regime and an even higher amount of motivation. I wish I could say I have all three of the above on board, however that would be just silly and unrealistic.

Nonetheless, there are many people out there who have trouble losing weight, especially women who have spent time trying out various diet plans and stick to an intense exercise routine. This may give them the desired results they are looking for in terms of a more physically fit body, however, some women after giving birth find that they have problems reducing the bump on their belly. This can contribute to feelings of insecurity and low self-esteem.

For some people this is a stubborn problem area which may seem to stay at its shape for a long time, no matter how much effort is put in trying to reduce it. This may then lead to people deciding to go through abdominoplasty procedures, to aid them in gaining that youthful, fit and trimmer looking torso. Many people will find that reading up about the procedure seems more daunting and frightening than it really is. Generally private practises provide the best possible pre and after care.

Abdominoplasty (or otherwise known as a tummy tuck) is a procedure that removes excess fat and tissue that causes an oversized belly. This can create a look that is most unappealing to the individual and as mentioned before this can cause low self esteem and lack of confidence. Many celebrity mums have been rumoured have had the tummy tuck procedure, soon after being given a caesarean, which may explain the speedy weight loss and glamorous look after a short period.

The procedure usually requires plenty of research from the individual seeking a boost in obtaining the body shape they desire. The best place to start is by looking online and reading up information on the procedure itself. When searching for a consultant it is best not gamble with your health or body, and opt towards a reputable well-established private practitioner. The worst thing you can do is to approach a clinic that offers cheap surgery promising amazing results. You would much rather trust a clinic that has had positive feedback from people and has been recommended by other accredited doctors.

One important thing to remember about abdominoplasty is that it is an extremely invasive procedure, which will require a lot of time to recover so you will be expected to pay for the best. If money is an object then this is something you discuss with the consultant, during the consultation period as he may be able to come up with a monthly payment plan.

As the procedure requires incisions in the actual abdominal area, it will mean that you will need to prepare for the procedure, for instance giving up smoking for a few months and giving any medications or contraceptive pills. This may interfere with the recovery progress. You will also need to allow yourself a good six weeks to recover, which will mean plenty of rest, no heavy lifting and low physical activity.

You will also be required to wear a garment that supports the back and abdominal area which will stop you from using the muscles in that area. The muscles in the abdomen will have been stretched and brought in more tightly providing you with that tight toned look. This is not a weight loss regime, therefore, in order to feel the long lasting effects of an abdominoplasty you will need to continue with following a healthy balanced diet and exercise regime after recovery.
