Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is the most frequently done procedure in plastic surgery and it creates dramatic changes in the patients figure. Although it seems as an aesthetic surgery, it is a necessary operation especially for the patients who have prominent sagging and excessive skin in the abdomen because of the facts that after the operation in these patients, exercise capacity in daily life ,mechanical back pain and self-esteem in marriage life have been showed to improve.
More impressive results are obtained when abdominoplasty operations are done together with liposuction (withdrawal of excess fat) in order to refine belly contour.
In abdominoplasty operations, in addition to removal of excess skin and sagging, loose abdominal muscles due to childbirth, weight gain/loss are also repaired, by this way a flatter, smoother abdominal contour can be formed.
