Tummy Tuck/ Abdominoplasty
An abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a Tummy Tuck, is a cosmetic procedure used to make the abdomen flatter and firmer. In this surgical procedure excess fat and skin are removed from the abdomen area in order to tighten the muscles and tissues of the abdominal area.
Pregnancy, weight loss and the natural ageing process can leave behind excess, sagging skin around the stomach(abdomen) area, which can’t be banished through non-invasive procedures. There is a good number of men and women who are left helpless, frustrated and depressed by the fact that no matter how intensely they follow a hard exercise regime and faithfully stick to a healthy diet, they can’t attain a flatter and firmer stomach. The solution in such cases is an Abdominoplasty.
Over time, the body gradually quits producing collagen and elastin, two proteins that are significant for healthy skin. As this happens, the skin loses its quality of elasticity, causing it to sag. Often, once the skin is greatly stretched, it cannot return to smaller size or shape, no matter how frequently the individual exercises and how consistently he/she follows a nutritional diet.
Luckily, Abdominoplasty in Mumbai at Krasa addresses such aggressive sagging of the abdominal skin, loose abdominal muscles and stubborn fat throughout the midsection.
There are three types of tummy tuck both performed under general anaesthesia. The type to be chosen for you will be discussed with you that totally depends on your general health and how much fat you need or wish to remove.

1. Full Abdominoplasty – Best for patients who have a large amount of excess skin. A full abdominoplasty is known as the Standard Tummy Tuck and it is designed to remove fat, repair any torn muscles and removes excess skin.
2. Extended Abdominoplasty – Best for patients who have excess fat and skin in the flanks, upper hip, and lower back regions. An extended tummy tuck will remove skin and fat from all of these areas as well as repairing any torn muscles if required.
3. Mini Abdominoplasty – Best for patients who only have a small amount of tissue between the area above their pubic region to the tummy button, their stomach may have a crinkly appearance but doesn’t necessarily overhang. A mini tummy tuck can also still repair the muscles as well as removing excess skin and tightening up the lower part of the tummy.
After the procedure it is recommended to the patient to rest for around 7-14 days as their mobility is advised to keep extremely minimal. A compression garment is provided to the patient after the procedure which helps the patient keep swelling and bruising down. Dissolvable stitches are commonly used in the area of the procedure so it will need to be kept clean during your recovery. The patients are also asked to avoid using water on the area and keep dry during their recovery. It is highly recommended to the patient to avoid taking part in physical activity for around 6 weeks.
