Tummy Tuck Surgery Or Abdominoplasty By A Well Famed Surgeon In Mumbai

It takes a lot of effort to have a slim and toned tummy. And if you are one of the persons who has lost that tone you once actually had on your tummy, you definitely know how it feels and tends to blame yourself for the change. However, you must realize that certain factors like aging, weight gain and loss, pregnancy, hereditary conditions may be beyond our control. Any amount of diet and exercise sometimes still cannot help you get rid of the flabbiness you have on your tummy. As you age, your skin also does not contract well enough to support the loss of underlying fat, and hence you have a lot of excess skin hanging on your lower abdomen. Pregnancy may lead to loss of the muscle tone in the upper abdomen, causing a sort of bulge which shows up in every attire, making you feel helpless.
However, abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery in Mumbai is a surgical procedure that can correct the stubborn fat, loose hanging skin, and loss of muscle tone in your abdomen, giving you that slimmer and toned mid-section you are craving for.

WHY MAY YOU WANT TUMMY TUCK OR ABDOMINOPLASTY SURGERY?

Abdominoplasty or Tummy tuck in Mumbai can be helpful to you in the following conditions;

BRIEF ABOUT THE TUMMY TUCK SURGERY PROCEDURE IN MUMBAI:

Pre-operative markings will be done in the standing position. This surgery is done under general anesthesia and will need a hospital stay of 2-3 days. The surgery has 3 components. The first one is liposuction and skin excision; hence the procedure may be known as lipo abdominoplasty. Liposuction will help get rid of the stubborn fat of your abdomen’s quadrant, helping you give a slimmer look. After the liposuction, a cut is made in the lowest part of your abdomen extending from one hip bone to another. This cut lies well below the level of your undergarment and hence will not be visible. Through this cut, the excess skin and soft tissue in the lower abdomen are removed. The second component of the surgery is tightening the vertical muscles in your abdomen, which have lost their tone. To tighten these muscles, internal stitches are placed along the whole length of the muscles. This will help in reducing the upper abdomen bulge. The third component of the surgery is replacing your belly button with an appropriate aesthetic position removing excess skin. And finally, the cut placed on your lower abdomen is closed in layers over a drainage tube.

HOW THE RECOVERY HAPPENS: A BRIEF BY OUR TUMMY TUCK SURGEON IN MUMBAI

You will be hospitalized for 24-48 hours till the drainage tubes are removed. You will be advised to take complete rest for a period of one week after discharge. You will be mobilized on the next day itself and will gradually be allowed to walk short distances. A compression garment will be put on the very next day, and it is advisable to continue wearing it for a period of 6 weeks. It is very important not to smoke in your recovery period until 6 weeks as smoking inhibits the adequate healing process.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER ABDOMINOPLASTY OR TUMMY TUCK-IN MUMBAI?

Week 1:
You will feel sore and weak. The pain will last for 3 to 7 days but can be controlled with analgesics. After taking a tummy tuck surgery in Mumbai, our surgeons suggest you seek adequate rest. You may need some help getting in and out of bed for 3 to 4 days. Move about very slowly as you may feel some tightness in your lower abdomen as you get up. You may need to bend a little over your waist to prevent stretch on the cut line. By the 4th day, you will regain your energy levels and will be able to manage basic tasks yourself. By the 7th to 8th day, you will be able to sit and do a desk job. The bending at the waist will not be required anymore, and you can ease into a straighter posture.
Week 4-6:
Pain and swelling have reduced significantly. A compression garment is to be worn for 6 weeks. The cut line also heals by the end of 4 to 6 weeks. After 6 weeks, you can go on to continuing strenuous physical activities. Scar management protocols will be advised by Dr. Ashish to help fade the scar and blend it well along the natural crease in the lower abdomen.
After 6 months:
You will have a slimmer and toned abdomen, with a scar hidden well under your underpants. You will be motivated towards a healthier lifestyle to maintain the look you have achieved. The choice of getting a tummy tuck surgery in Mumbai, by our surgeon opens up the possibility to live a motivated, higher standard life.
