Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is performed to make the abdominal area more firm. Almost all overweight people have excess weight and skin problems in their abdominal areas for sure. Overweight people are mostly associated with abnormal bellies. Some of them manage to get rid of their excess fat build-ups with proper diet and fitness programs while some can’t. Most people prefer tummy tuck for excess skin problems instead of excess weight problems.
Liposuction is a combination of fat removal surgery (liposuction) and skin-removal procedures. If you’re not suffering from an excess skin problem, yours will be just the fat removal surgery. When it’s performed along with skin removal, that’s called tummy tuck or abdominoplasty.
However, there is a big eligibility requirement that you just met if you want to undergo a tummy tuck procedure. You need to have elastic skin so that the excess skin can be removed without any trouble. This is the most important thing when it comes to being qualified for a tummy tuck procedure.
Your excess skin will be removed and the remaining sides of your skin are stretched and sutured together. This is the final stage of a tummy tuck procedure. A tummy tuck is not so much complicated as it seems, however, if you do not take good care of your body, you may suffer from complications like swelling, inflammation, bruising, infection, and itching.
However, most of these complications are considered your body’s reactions to tummy tuck procedures if they occur in slight levels. You need to limit your movements and avoid sunlight exposure and sweating to protect your tummy tuck area from complications.
You can consult your doctor if you suffer from severe complications. For example, infection is probably the worst complication and requires immediate doctor’s consultation.
