Tummy Tuck at Michelson Cosmetic
The tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is an operation that is designed to remove excess skin from the abdomen and tighten the abdominal muscles. It is indicated in cases where abnormal stretching of lax abdominal muscles and skin has resulted in excessive bulging. Unlike liposuction surgery, which just removes fat, this operation involves removal of skin and fat, with tightening of the abdominal muscles. For this reason, it is more extensive than liposuction. The actual extent of surgery will depend on the amount of excess skin and the degree of abdominal muscle laxness.
The operation is usually carried out under general anesthesia. The amount of skin that is to be removed is carefully marked, and an incision is made in the bikini line. The excess skin is pulled down and inward, and is removed along with underlying fatty tissue. The muscles are tightened as required, the skin is carefully redraped, and the incision is closed with several layers of sutures.
