Tummy tuck (κοιλιοπλαστική) is aimed at women and men in order to correct aesthetic problems in the abdomen.
Tummy tuck is a surgical procedure aimed at removing excess skin from the abdomen, but also in restoring weakened abdominal muscles, from weight gain, weight loss or pregnancy. Abdominal muscles mainly from pregnancy can relax and create a distortion that is not necessarily due to skin loosening or excess fat. For belly relaxation, the most common causes are weight loss and weight fluctuations. It is also common in men who want to remove fat from the middle and lower third of the abdomen or link it to the repair of a hernia.
It is known that fat accumulation in the abdomen is associated with several serious health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and strokes. With tummy tuck , abdominal fat is removed to help improve the person’s health.
With tummy tuck , a smoother and steady outline of the abdomen is achieved and the abdominal muscles are stressed.
It should be made clear that tummy tuck is not a method of slimming, but it is a remodeling procedure of the shape and shape of the body.
Depending on the problem, tummy tuck can achieve tightening and smoothing of the loose abdominal skin, restoring loose abdominal muscles, correcting abdominal wall lumps. It may involve the entire abdominal wall (classical tummy tuck ), or in special cases it may be restricted to the central and lower part of the pelvis (mini tummy tuck) and may be combined with liposuction.
The incision is low in the abdomen, similar to that of cesarean, but it extends laterally. However, it is placed so that it is hidden from the underwear and the swimsuit.
The surgery is performed after general anesthesia. Return to work is recommended after 7 to 10 days but the final recovery may take 3-4 weeks
It is an intervention, with excellent results in the shape of the waist and the contour of the body. The result of the intervention is immediately apparent
