Advantages and Disadvantages of Tummy Tuck
Abdominoplastic surgery, better called a tummy tuck, is a major cosmetic procedure to eliminate unwanted fat and skin from either the upper or lower abdomen. A long, deep cut is performed under the abdominal skin so all unwanted fat and skin are removed and the remaining skin is pulled tight. In addition, other cosmetic surgeries may be done including the reduction of breast implants or liposuction. This procedure may be done together to achieve an optimum effect.
Many women choose to have this type of cosmetic surgery when they reach the menopause or after childbirth. A tummy tuck is usually performed in a hospital operating room, however more surgeons are using surgical suites in their offices. The main advantage of an in office surgery is that patients can recover much faster and go back to work soon after the procedure. In addition, there is no need for anesthetics and therefore a shorter recovery period.
The tummy tuck procedure is often combined with other procedures such as liposuction or a facelift in order to give the patient a good overall appearance and improve self-esteem. If you are considering this procedure, you should have a healthy weight loss, regular exercise, and a stable body weight. Your age, general health, and your commitment to the procedure should also be considered. Make sure that you feel completely comfortable before having any procedures done to your body.
