Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty : To Go Or Not To Go For It?

Aug 18, 2007
Been exercising and dieting recently? That's good, you probably lost some serious kilos and are looking good except for a certain protrusion. Yes, that's a tummy bulge. Its hard to go away despite rigorous exercises and dieting. What to do? What to do? Should you go that tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty surgery)? Read on...

What is abdominoplasty surgery? An abdominoplasty procedure, generally known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical process that allows the removal of the extra skin and fat from your abdomen. This surgery will lead to tighter collection of muscles in the abdominal wall thus giving you a flatter stomach.

Tummy tuck treatment varies depending on your conditions and requirements. Some people go for both abdominiplasty treatment and liposuction because they have that need. Others go for one or the other only.

Abdominoplasty treatment aims to remove or lessen the sagging of the skin in the portion around the stomach area. For example, a woman may develop stretch marks or sagging skin after birth - she may want to go for surgery to remove these. With a tummy tuck, it is possible to recreate the abdominal skin and restore it to its original flatness but it comes with its own risks, of course.

Take note that abdominoplasty surgery is not a cheap operation. It is more expensive than most cosmetic surgeries but despite this, it remains the most sought after surgery in America and other western countries. And there are risk of surgical failure as well. People are well aware of the risks of such a treatment, yet thousands chose to go under the knife each year for the sake of physical beauty and self esteem.

But before you join the crowd and go under the knife, ask yourself these questions :-

1. Do you really need a tummy tuck? Is your problem that bad? Can you live with it without an operation?

2. Have you check out other options that may eventually lead you to the same result? Or at least alleviate your problem? How about more appropriate dressing, tummy targeting exercises, etc?

3. Can you afford the cost of abdominoplasty surgery which can set you back at least a few thousand dollar? Is this expense worth it?

4. Are you physically and mentally prepared for the psychological transistions of such an operation? Any surgery entails lots of inconveniences and medical or no-pay leave etc. Are you prepared for the consequences?

If you have decided to go for abdominoplasty treatment, then hope for the best but prepare for the worst as anything can happen. Get as much info as you can on it, ask your doctor for his professional opinion and generally use common sense before you really go under the knife.
