Tummy tuck in Delhi

A well-toned and perfect looking abdomen is something most of us strive for. A number of factors can cause the stomach to protrude and give a loose and saggy appearance. We spend hours in the gym and follow strict diets to get rid of the tummy-chub, but for some people, it just does not go away.  In such cases, a tummy-tuck surgery comes to the rescue.

What is a tummy tuck surgery?
A tummy tuck surgery, also medically known as abdominoplasty is a procedure which involves removing excess fat and skin and restoring weakened or separated muscles in the abdomen, to create a tightened and smoother abdomen. This surgery reshapes the abdominal area, helping to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing, slimmer overall appearance. Tummy tucks surgeries are popular amongst men and women, particularly those whose bodies have undergone dramatic changes from pregnancy or weight loss.

At Apollo Spectra, we provide the best tummy-tuck in Delhi. Our plastic surgeons have specialised training in performing tummy-tucks. They consider the health of the patients, their medical history and other factors before carrying out the surgery and ensure excellent results.

What are the different types of Tummy-tuck?
There are two different types of tummy tuck, including-

  1. Partial tummy-tuck
    In a partial tummy-tuck surgery, a large incision (cut) is made across the lower abdomen. The skin is then separated from the abdominal wall below the belly button and the excess fat is removed. The surgeons then remove the excess skin and pull together the remaining skin and stitch it in place giving a refined and flattened stomach. This operation is performed under a general anesthetic.
  2. Full Tummy-tuck
    In a full tummy-tuck surgery, a large, hip to hip, incision (cut) is made in the lower abdomen, right above the pubic area. The surgeons then make another incision to separate the belly button from its surrounding tissues. They then separate the skin from the abdominal wall, realign the abdominal muscle and remove excess fat and skin. Following this, they stitch the belly button in place and pull together the remaining skin and stitch in its place, giving you a flatter stomach. This operation is carried out under a local anesthetic and may take up to 2-5 hours. The patient is required to stay in the hospital for a few days.
Who are the right candidates for tummy tuck?
The decision of getting a tummy-tuck is personal and may vary for each individual. Most people who choose tummy-tuck, include-

  • Those who have lost a significant amount of weight with diet and exercise, but their abdomen protrudes out.
  • Those who have stretched and sagging abdomen following pregnancy
  • Those who are unhappy with the shape of their belly and wish to get a flatter and toned belly.

At Apollo Spectra,  the doctors will perform a wide range of tests to check if you are in the best health for a surgery, before performing the operation.  You are a right candidate for a tummy tuck surgery, if-

  • You are physically fit and at a stable weight
  • You are a non-smoker
  • You excessive fat deposits or saggy skin on your stomach
  • You have realistic expectations
What happens after the surgery?
A tummy tuck surgery can be pretty painful. The doctor will prescribe you certain pain-relief medicines and methods to deal with the post-surgical discomfort. The recovery periods may require you to take rest for about 4-6 weeks, following the operation. You will be asked to refrain from any work or forms of physical exertion.  Complete recovery takes a minimum of 6 weeks and it may take you a few more weeks to see the best results. You will be required to wear a special corset or tummy control pants, which will help your skin to heal properly and control any swelling. You will have to take care of the stitches and make sure you sit right. You will also need to get the wound evaluated after one or two weeks of the surgery.

At Apollo Spectra, our surgeons provide comprehensive care to the patients. They prescribe pain-relief medicines and counseling on how to boost the recovery. Once healed, you will have a flattened and defined tummy that you always wanted which will make the efforts worth it.
