The abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” procedure is designed to correct excess skin, fat and muscle laxity of the abdominal region.
Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure which removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the abdominal wall muscles to restore a firm and toned abdomen after massive weight loss. In most cases, this procedure will help to restore weakened or separated muscles, improve the bladder function, help to alleviate pain, reduce itching and skin infections that are caused by excess skin, and will change the tone and shape of the abdomen, creating a more firm and smoother profile.
Whilst an abdominoplasty is a great treatment to undergo after weight loss, it is not a substitute for weight loss or exercise. Dr Kevin Dolan offers many bariatric procedures for weight loss that should, depending on your weight, be considered before undergoing an abdominoplasty.
What can you expect after an abdominoplasty?
Abdominoplasty can not successfully be carried out without a scar line above the pubic region. This scar can vary in length and is dependent on the extent of the required surgery. In some cases, there may also be a need for a scar around the belly button and a possible vertical midline scar. Each patients scars can heal differently, some may result in redness, widening or raised scarring. However, Dr Kevin Dolan is able to minimise scarring, which can be done through the use of silicone tapes and gels, and various other treatments if required.
