TUMMY TUCK – ABDOMINOPLASTY
Sometimes, you may not see the toned, flat abdomen you’ve worked so hard for despite your best efforts of eating healthy, and workout.
Women after giving birth have a unique set of challenges to obtain a firm tummy. In situations like these, a tummy tuck can help you achieve a youthful, attractive abdominal area.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical body contouring procedure designed to restore your midsection and provide a more youthful, toned appearance.
Tummy tucks address three primary issues:
- Stubborn pockets of fat in the midsection
- Excess skin around the abdominal area
- Separated stomach muscles.
Tummy Tuck procedure can firm and strengthen your midsection while enhancing the contours of your waist and hips.
- A tummy tuck can restore a weakened core, strengthen abdominal muscles, and improve overall flexibility.
- Prevents Hernias.
- Improved Control Over Bodily Functions.
- Relieves Stress Urinary Incontinence.
TUMMY TUCK OPTIONS
Depending on the extent of your excess fat and loose skin, there are options available to help you obtain the flat, toned look you desire. The most common types of tummy tucks performed by doctors/surgeons at YOUNIQ are:
Full tummy tuck:
Full tummy tucks are designed to tighten the entire abdomen from the ribs to the pelvis. Incisions typically extend from hip to hip. This incision is discreetly hidden beneath most types of undergarments and bathing suits. If you have extra fat and skin both above and below your belly button, this technique may be your best option.
Mini tummy tuck:
If you have only a modest amount of excess fat and skin that is isolated below your belly button, you may be a good candidate for a mini tummy tuck. While mini tummy tucks offer the benefits of a shorter scar and quicker recovery time, the procedure is limited in what it can accomplish and only appropriate for a small percentage of patients.
Doctors/Surgeons at YOUNIQ, typically include liposuction of the flanks and abdomen. They also ensure your belly button is attractive and looks as though it has never been touched.
Tummy Tuck Recovery:
Although full recovery takes a month or two, you should be able to return to work and your everyday activities in about three weeks. During your recovery, Doctors/Surgeons at YOUNIQ encourage you to contact them whenever you have a question or concern.
