All non-surgical options have limited shown they benefit individuals.. who are few kilos over their normal weight all others require a surgical procedure. It could be.. Liposuction (or) a combined Liposuction with Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) or Abdominoplasty alone. Each of these techniques have definite role, in individuals with different problems. Liposuction is a surgical procedure by which the fat between the skin and the underlying muscle is removed.
The result of liposuction, depends on the quality of skin. Once the fat between the skin and the muscle is removed, the skin has to shrink and REdrape over the muscle, to give a good contour. In individuals with lax, excess skin, liposuction alone will not be of much benefit. Liposuction is performed by introducing small cannulas of the size of four and five millimeter, under the skin to suck the fat between the skin and the muscle. Usually the procedure is performed as a day care procedure and patient could return home the same day. Normal activity could be resumed after one week however, (if) multiple areas are performed in the same sitting, pain discomfort could be expedient for a period of six weeks.
Following liposuction, bruising or skin discoloration with numbness over the liposuction area, could be experienced for a period of six weeks. Contour irregularities occur rarely, when performed by experienced hands. Liposuction is a good procedure for contouring the abdomen, however liposuction is beneficial only to individuals who have a good quality skin, and there is no weak muscles. Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck removes all excess skin between the hairline at the pubic region and the navel. The underlying muscle is plicated or tightened.
The skin is pulled and re-stitched and the resulting scar is hidden under the undergarments. Thus abdominoplasty is beneficial, for someone who has excess skin and loose muscle. For someone who has a protruding abdominal, resulting from a combination of excess fat loose skin and poor muscle tone, Lipo Abdominoplasty is the surgical option. First a liposuction is performed to remove all excess fat, then abdominoplasty is performed.
First the liposuction is performed, when the skin flaps are thin, then the excess skin is removed and the muscle plicated. At the end of lipo abdominoplasty the individual gets a flat, skateboard abdomen. When liposuction alone is performed it could be done as a day surgery and, patients could resume their activity after a period of one week, however, Abdominoplasty or lipo abdominoplasty requires hospital admission for two to three days. Repeated follow-up for a period of up to two weeks is required. Rest at home is required for a period of two weeks. Vigorous activities exercise and sporting activities could be resumed only after six weeks following an abdominoplasty or a lipo abdominoplasty.
After liposuction, pregnancy is allowed. However following abdominoplasty or lipo abdominoplasty, pregnancy is not advised, since going hrough another pregnancy can spoil the result and the muscles can become loose again. Liposuction is usually performed at the lower abdomen, upper abdomen, lateral flanks and the posterior flanks. This region is commonly referred to as the love handles. In abdominoplasty or lipo abdominoplasty the skin between the hairline and the navel is removed completely. The underlying muscle is tightened in the midline.
The upper flap is then tightened brought down and sutured to the lower flap. The resulting linear scar remains hidden within the undergarment. Following liposuction multiple small scars remain permanent at the port site. They are usually of the size of five to seven millimeter Following abdominoplasty or lipo abdominoplasty a linear transfer scar remains permanently at the lower abdomen, within the undergarment.
