A bulging lower abdomen is a embarrassing condition for most of the females after childbirth. This is due to the laxity of the lower abdominal muscles which stretches during pregnancy, excess fat in the lower abdomen or an Incisional Hernia after any lower abdominal surgery. For these women, Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty could provide a permanent solution. It is very effective in those patients who have lost excessive weight by successful dieting but now have excess loose skin in the lower abdomen.
During Abdominoplasty, the fold of loose & excess skin in the lower abdomen is removed. Abdominal wall muscles are tightened to restore the tone lost during pregnancy, Hernia if any is corrected and excess fat in some areas are also removed by liposuction. Hence the whole abdomen is reshaped into a youthful and flat one.
This surgery takes approximately 4 hrs and requires spinal / beneal anesthesia. The usual hospital stay is 5-7 days depending upon the individuals response to surgery.
