While women who have had children and want post pregnancy surgery are among the biggest demographics of patients looking for a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty can be effective for men and women alike. Patients who have experienced a significant weight loss are also ideal candidates for a tummy tuck procedure, as well as men and women who have experienced loose skin and sagging as a result of age.
Tummy tuck procedures have been available in the field of cosmetic surgery for many years and have become a fairly routine procedure. Because abdominoplasty is an elective procedure, most insurance companies will not cover the surgery costs. However, there are exceptions that may be worth looking into if your tummy tuck procedure is in relation to your health; such as is the case with a hernia or excess skin that is causing medical problems.
To achieve the desired results from a tummy tuck operation, an incision is placed just above the pubic area, excess skin is removed and loose muscles tightened. Liposuction may be added to the process to help with fatty deposits that resist diet and exercise, but it is not necessary. The results are a tight, toned abdomen area that the patient wants. Patients are able to resume most normal activities within a few weeks (including sexual activity which should be held off for two weeks). Swelling and bruising may occur (this is natural) and optimal results can be seen anywhere between 8-10 weeks.
