Shedding abdominal fat can be frustrating
for both men and women

Shedding abdominal fat can be frustrating for both men and women. A bulging tummy can make its appearance as a result of weight gain, pregnancy or as a sign of aging. Whatever the reason, a bothersome belly pooch can make anyone feel uncomfortable and less confident about their body. When solutions like dieting and targeted exercises fail, you may want to consider a cosmetic procedure known as abdominoplasty.

What is Abdominoplasty?

Also known as tummy tuck, abdominoplasty is a popular cosmetic procedure that flattens the shape and appearance of the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat tissues. The muscles in the abdominal wall are also tightened to create a smoother, firmer profile.
Because it gets rid of stubborn fat and removes excess skin, abdominoplasty also eliminates stretch marks in the abdomen below the belly button but it won’t remove stretch marks from other parts of the body. A tummy tuck can be done in combination with other body contouring procedures such as mammoplasty.


It’s important to note that even though abdominoplasty is an effective solution against stubborn pockets of fats in the abdomen; it is not a substitute for proper diets and exercise. In other words, it is not a weight loss method.

How does it work?

Your surgeon will discuss your body goals with you before the surgery and determine the type of abdominoplasty that’s best for you based on the extent of changes you’d like to see. On the day of the procedure, your surgeon will make administer general anesthetic and make incisions above the pubic hair.


The type and length of the incision as well as the order of steps will be determined by whether you’re getting complete, partial or circumferential abdominoplasty. After the excess fat and skin is removed, and the muscles tightened, the incision site will be stitched and bandaged.


The duration of the procedure varies but it’s usually around 2-5 hours. Most patients need to stay in the hospital for a few nights and will need painkillers to minimize pain and discomfort.

• Are done being pregnant
