No more bad reputation for tummy tuck, which has long suffered from heavy and restrictive consequences to be reserved for obese people. Times have changed, so has demand…
First, it is interesting to understand that we no longer work on very large patients. The operative technique, which has benefited from advances in restorative surgery, has improved considerably.
Today, it is almost as easy to consider a stomach lift as a face lift. If you are overweight, it is best to lose one or two pounds before entering the clinic.
By acting on three levels: skin, fat and muscles. The principles of an intervention are to remove excess fat under the skin, to remove excess skin obtained during pregnancy or due to yo-yo diets, and to tighten the abdominal muscles. There are two procedures for obtaining a flat stomach in cosmetic surgery: abdominal plasty or liposuction, the indications of which will depend on the current state of your belly.
The abdominal plasty is intended for patients who experience a significant excess of skin going up to the abdominal apron, and consequent muscular relaxation.
This intervention is the most complete but also the heaviest. It removes excess fat (by performing liposuction at the start of the procedure), tightens the abdominal muscles and removes excess skin between the navel and the pubis.
Abdominal liposuction is intended for patients with little excess skin, a good amount of fat under the skin and moderate muscle relaxation.
It is the lightest, but least comprehensive intervention. It removes the fat located between the skin and the abdominal muscles. It moderately treats excess skin, it does not at all treat sagging muscles in the abdomen but does not cause scars.
Let's stop focusing on her navel and take advantage of the sunny days to try the different massage techniques that will promote the circulation of energy.
