tummy tuck surgery singaporeAlthough a flat, firm tummy is always desirable, it can often be very elusive despite all the sit-ups and dieting you do. This happens because very often the abdominal muscles have been stretched, owing to pregnancy or weight loss. Therefore, a tummy tuck is the only way to get back its normal form. A tummy tuck surgery will get rid of the excess fat and skin around the midsection, and make the abdominals taut again.

Tummy Tuck Procedure

Tummy Tuck Procedure
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is performed under local anesthesia with a sedative, or under general anesthesia. It is regularly done with an incision usually made very low on the abdomen, just above the pubic area. During the procedure, excess skin and fat tissue is removed, and the muscles of the abdominal walls are also tightened.

Depending on the extent of the work to be done, a liposuction may also be recommended alongside a tummy tuck. Patients that have excess fat only in the lower portion of the abdomen can choose to have a mini tummy tuck, rather than a full one.

A tummy tuck is right for you if:

  • You have excess fat around the midsection that does not respond to diet and exercise.
  • • Your weight is normal, but you have a protruding tummy due to pregnancy or weight loss.
  • You are not overweight.

In addition, women are advised not to have a tummy tuck until they are done having children, as pregnancy and childbirth can cause the abdominal muscles to separate.
