A Tummy Tuck for Christmas

Aug 17, 2007
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure which involves reshaping and refashioning both the stomach and the skin and muscles surrounding it. The correct term for it is an Abdominoplasty. The tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure and must be thought over well before having it done.

This procedure is normally used for cosmetic reasons in which the person having the procedure dislikes his or her body shape and wants to improve it.

The usual type of person who undergoes a tummy tuck is very often a woman who has had children and has ended up with stretch marks and loose saggy skin on her abdomen. Other women, who may favour undergoing the procedure, are often those who have undergone a caesarian section, appendectomy or who have scars on their lower abdomen.

Other people who often benefit from the procedure are those who have lost a great deal of weight. Because of their great weight loss, they are usually left with great folds of hanging skin on their abdomen. This can be depressing for the person who has lost the weight; therefore a tummy tuck can be just the boost they need to ensure they don't slip back into bad habits and regain their lost weight.

The scar from a tummy tuck usually runs horizontally from hip to hip over the pubic region. The surgeon who is normally a plastic surgeon appreciates the anxiety of his patients that as little scar as possible will be visible. Therefore a good surgeon will do his utmost to ensure the scar that is left is as low as possible so it is as least visible as possible.

It's important that patients who have decided to have a tummy tuck realize that they will be left with a scar. Many people seem to think that this type of procedure leaves a very fine scar or no scar at all, however it should be remembered that this procedure is classed as major surgery, and there is bound to be some form of scarring. Being major surgery, the tummy tuck is usually on performed on otherwise healthy people.

Some people also opt to have liposuction performed when they have a tummy tuck. Liposuction performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck can enhance the whole look of the abdomen giving it a completely new shape. We see instances of both men and women under going these procedures.
