Dermolipectomy is a procedure adopted for tummy tuck surgery. It is an ideal option for people that have surplus skin and additional fat. Dermolipectomy can be done only for people with good shape of abdominal muscles as the recovery is possible. Dermolipectomy is a procedure that can be done on any part of the body with excess fat and skin. Dermolipectomy is an inpatient procedure and is conducted surgically under medical care in the hospital. This surgery is advised and recommended by cosmetologists worldwide for patients that require fat loss due to medical reasons and for patients that opt for cosmetic reasons. During the procedure the cosmetologist will make an incision across the skin of the abdomen upto near the pubic hair. The abundant skin is pulled down and extracted from the area. Generally a slit is made near the navel to remove the extra skin. After the fat is removed the skin is sealed back in place. The navel might appear to have shifted however it does not. The patient is discharged with a belt around his tummy which is to be used for approximately a period of one month. The patient is advised to rest extensively for the first week after the surgery and will be prescribed medicines and antibiotics for recovery. The patient can resume normal activities gradually during the course of one month. The doctor suggests refraining from all heavy physical activities for a period of two months. The stitches are monitored and are removed when they heal after a week or a fortnight depending on the progress of the recovery.
