A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that helps to improve the appearance of the abdomen. The procedure involves removing extra skin and fat from the stomach area and tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall.
There are several different types of tummy tuck surgery, and the type that is right for you will depend on your individual goals and needs.
Full tummy tuck: The most common type of tummy tuck is the full tummy tuck. This procedure comprises the removal of excess skin and fat from the entire abdominal area, as well as the tightening of the abdominal muscles. This procedure is often recommended for those who have experienced a significant amount of weight loss, as it can help to create a more toned and contoured appearance.
Mini tummy tuck: The mini tummy tuck only involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the lower abdominal area. This procedure is often advised for those who only have a small amount of excess skin and fat, and who do not need the tightening of the abdominal muscles.
Circumferential tummy tuck: This procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the entire abdominal area, as well as the thighs and buttocks. This procedure is often recommended for those individuals who have fats accumulated at the front as well as the back of the midsection.
Extended tummy tuck (high lateral tension abdominoplasty): This procedure is similar to the full tummy tuck, but involves the removal of more skin from the sides than the centre to give a better waist definition. This procedure is often recommended for those who have experienced a significant weight loss, as it can help to create a more contoured look.

The consultation is the best time to learn more about Dr. Anjali ’s style and approach to tummy tuck surgery. This will also be the time when Dr. Anjali will get to know you, your goals, and your expectations.

Tummy tuck surgery is usually performed under spinal or epidural anesthesia. At Dr. Anjali's Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic it is usually accompanied by 360 degrees liposuction. After liposuction is done, the surgeon will make an incision in your lower abdomen, from hip bone to hip bone in such a way that it is hidden beneath the undergarments. The surgeon will then separate your skin from the underlying abdominal muscles and stitch the muscles back together. If there is any hernia it is managed at this step by strong muscle repair. This will tighten your stomach muscles and give you a flatter tummy. Next, the surgeon will pull down the skin over your abdomen and remove any excess skin.The next step is to create a new youthful looking navel. Once everything is trimmed away, the surgeon will close the incisions with stitches. You will then be wrapped in a compression garment to help support your stomach as you heal.
Blood or extra liquid may be removed through a tube inserted beneath the skin. The surgeon will provide additional information to the patient regarding the care of the tubes until they are removed.
Following discharge, the patient is advised to take complete rest for at least two weeks although walking around is encouraged.
To maintain the contour of the abdomen, protective clothing must be worn compulsorily.
Medications will be given to relieve the discomfort or soreness. Anti-coagulants may also be used to prevent blood clots from forming. These medicines must be taken as directed.
After two to three weeks, the patient may resume light work.
