The medical benefits of a tummy tuck
- Posted on: Jan 30 2020
Men and women with excess fat and skin in the abdominal area may have tried traditional methods to improve their body contours, including improving diet and increasing exercise and physical activities. However, stubborn fat deposits in the tummy area can be difficult to address with diet and exercise alone. With plastic surgery solutions, patients in the Palo Alto, CA area can achieve a brand new look. The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a popular choice for patients who are unhappy with excess fat and skin in the midsection.
What is done during a tummy tuck?
Patients undergoing a tummy tuck with Dr. Orna Fisher of Elite Transformations will start with a consultation appointment to determine candidacy. Then, a surgical appointment is made. This appointment starts with proper sedation and anesthetics to get the patients comfortable for their procedure. An incision is made along the abdominal area underneath the stomach. This ensures that the scarring left behind does not show when patients are wearing a two-piece bathing suit or shorts. Excess fat is surgically removed or removed using a liposuction cannula. Then, the excess skin is removed and the area is sutured. The procedure does not take long to perform and can provide amazing results.
What are the benefits of a tummy tuck?
There are actually times when a tummy tuck may be medically beneficial to a patient. Patients with a ventral hernia may find that a tummy tuck will reduce pressure on the skin and will improve weakened abdominal muscles that are impacted by this condition. This condition can occur due to surgical procedures in the area, such as a c-section or an appendectomy, or from abdominal weakening due to significant weight loss. Patients who have back pain may find that it has increased with the size of their stomach. Eliminating fat and weight in the midsection can help not only alleviate back pain but can also improve a patient’s overall posture due to better balance of the body.
