Different Types of Abdominoplasty Surgery

by Dr. Akangsha Sharma Plastic Surgeon

A protruding tummy is one of the most common reasons that cause distress among many men and women. A tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is a widely performed cosmetic procedure. It aims at removing extra fat and skin from the abdominal area as well as the tightening of the abdominal muscles. This surgery helps restore the weakened muscles and focuses on creating a smoother, firmer, and abdominal profile. This surgery's main benefit is that it helps patients attain aesthetically pleasing, slimmer abdominal appearance.

Dr. Akangsha Sharma is one of the best cosmetic surgeons in Jaipur who performs tummy tuck surgery. She holds an extensive experience of more than a decade in performing various body contouring procedures.

Types of abdominoplasty

Mini Abdominoplasty

This is best suited for those patients who have excess skin in the lower abdomen only.

Full Abdominoplasty

In this procedure, the umbilicus is relocated, and muscle tightening is done, excess skin is excised and the liposuction of flanks is also performed. This procedure additionally helps to remove stretch marks as it involves skin removal. It is also known as lipo-abdominoplasty.

High Tension Lateral Abdominoplasty/ Lower Body lift

The procedure is considered in patients who along with abdominal laxity need improvement in flanks, thigh laxity, and buttock ptosis.

The ideal age for undergoing tummy tuck is after 18 years. Dr. Akangsha Sharma performs all these types of abdominoplasty surgeries at her clinic AK Aesthetics. She also performs different cosmetic surgery in Jaipur including liposuction, breast augmentation, breast reduction, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, and many more. All these procedures focus on providing effective and impressive results.

Abdominoplasty is performed in people suffering from:

Loose, lax abdominal skin with stretch marks post-pregnancy, which results in loss of self-confidence.

People suffering from excessive loose skin in the lower abdomen area.

Women who had several pregnancies can undergo this surgery as this surgery also focuses on tightening the abdominal muscles.

The procedure of abdominoplasty

Before beginning the surgery, the surgeon assesses and makes markings on the target area. For a pain-free experience, general anesthesia is administered. The incision is made in the bikini line so that it is not visible. In a full abdominoplasty, another incision is made around the umbilicus. A skin envelope is raised, and muscle tightening is done. Umbilicus (navel) is then repositioned if required. Skin is stretched, and excess skin is removed. Two different drains are made to control fluid accumulation. Suturing is done in the layers, and absorbable sutures are used. After this, the umbilicus is stitched using non-absorbable sutures.

The best time to consider tummy tuck is about 6 months post-delivery. Women who have completed her family are considered as an ideal candidate for the abdominoplasty. Tummy tuck surgery does not affect conception, but future childbirth does affect the results of tummy tuck surgery. Candidates who are looking forward to this procedure must quit smoking as smoking delays the healing process after the surgery. Abdominoplasty usually takes about 3-5 hours, depending on an individual requirement. The patient must wear a compression garment after the surgery.
