Tummy tucking also known as abdominoplasty is the method by which the excess belly fat and skin are removed to create an abdominal profile which is smooth and firm. A lot of factors can lead to a protruding tummy such as aging, heredity, pregnancy, or significant fluctuations in weight. A tummy tucking surgery is not an alternative to weight loss. Although, the results of tummy tucking are permanent and for this reason, women who are planning a pregnancy in future or those who are looking for a substantial weight loss are asked to postpone the surgery. Tummy tucking treatment is done by a plastic surgeon. Before the surgery, the patient is given a local anesthesia. An incision is made horizontally between the pubic hairline and the belly button. The length and shape of the incision are determined by the amount of excess belly skin. After the abdominal skin is lifted, the underlying abdominal skin is repaired. The second incision made, maybe necessary to remove the excess skin in the upper abdomen. After the upper abdominal skin is pulled down like a window shade, the excess skin is trimmed and the remaining skin is joined together. New opening of the belly button is created and the belly button is popped through the surface. The incision is closed with sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips. Until the healing is complete, there may be some problems in standing and swelling in the abdomen area. It can take up to a week for it to heal properly. Non surgical tummy tucking treatment includes creams and exercise. But they aren't as effective as the surgery. Similarly, chin tucking surgery is done to get rid of excess skin on chin.
