What Is Tummy Tuck And When It Is Required?

A tummy tuck, medically known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the appearance of the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat while also tightening the abdominal muscles. At Bizrahmed, we provide top tummy tuck in Dubai for patients who need them for different reasons.

It’s important to note that a tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure and should be considered carefully. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon is essential to assess candidacy, discuss goals and expectations, and understand the potential risks and benefits of the procedure based on individual needs and health status.

Common Factors Of Losse Or Sagging Skin

This procedure is often considered by individuals who struggle with loose, sagging skin and weakened abdominal muscles due to factors such as:

1.      Pregnancy

Pregnancy can cause significant changes to the abdominal area, stretching the skin and muscles. Following childbirth, some women may find it challenging to regain their pre-pregnancy abdominal shape, leading them to consider a tummy tuck.

2.      Significant Weight Loss

Individuals who have undergone significant weight loss, whether through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, may have excess skin around the abdomen that fails to conform to their reduced body size. A tummy tuck can help remove this excess skin and achieve a more contoured appearance.

3.      Ageing

With age, skin elasticity decreases, leading to sagging and laxity in various body areas, including the abdomen. A tummy tuck can address these issues by removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles.

4.      Genetics

Some individuals have a genetic predisposition to store excess fat or have weakened abdominal muscles. Ultimately, it results in a protruding abdomen that is not easily improved through diet or exercise alone.

What Are The Different Types of Tummy Tucks?

  1. Full Tummy Tuck: This involves incision from hip to hip, removing excess skin and fat, tightening abdominal muscles, and repositioning the belly button for a more contoured appearance.
  2. Mini Tummy Tuck: Suitable for individuals with less skin and muscle laxity, this procedure involves a smaller incision and primarily focuses on the lower abdomen, addressing limited excess skin and tightening the area below the belly button.

When is a Tummy Tuck Required?

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty in Dubai may be considered at Bizrahmed when:

  • Excess, loose skin on the abdomen does not improve with diet or exercise.
  • Abdominal muscles are weakened or separated, leading to a protruding abdomen.
  • Individuals seek to achieve a flatter, more toned abdominal contour.
  • The excess skin and fat in the abdominal area negatively impact self-confidence and body image.

How To Complement Tummy Tuck With Muscle Strengthening?

Before considering a tummy tuck surgery in Dubai, individuals may benefit from strengthening their abdominal muscles through exercise. However, a tummy tuck specifically addresses excess skin, fat removal, and muscle tightening in cases where exercise alone cannot achieve the desired results.

If weakened or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) are a concern, particularly after pregnancy or significant weight loss, a tummy tuck can help by surgically repairing and tightening these muscles along with removing excess skin and fat. Combining a tummy tuck with a strong foundation of toned abdominal muscles can result in a more contoured and toned appearance after recovery.

It’s important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine the most appropriate course of action. A surgeon can evaluate the condition of the abdominal muscles. Moreover, discuss surgical options, because they recommend suitable exercises or preparations before and after the procedure. After all, optimize results and support abdominal muscle health is essential.
