Today, for achieving a flat and firm abdomen, many of us strive for intensive weight loss and exercise. However, in some cases, these methods fail to achieve the desired goals. A loose, protruding or sagging abdomen is also witnessed in individuals with normal body weight and proportion. The reasons may include weight fluctuations, aging, heredity or any prior surgery. Sometimes, large weight loss or multiple pregnancies may cause weakening of abdominal muscles. As a result, the skin in that region appears to be sagging.

One of the most common cosmetic surgery is the abdominoplasty. In a tummy tuck surgery, excess abdominal skin and fat is removed by the abdominoplasty surgeon. In addition, separate or weak muscles are also restored to create a smooth and firm abdominal profile.

Abdominoplasty surgery includes two categories. Complete and partial or mini-abdominoplasty. Patients who need most of the correction are recommended for Complete abdominoplasty. Patients who require small incisions and whose fat deposits are located just below the navel are treated with mini-tummy tucks. Traditional tummy tuck makes use of surgical means to resolve these problems. However, post operation shows some side effects such as long recovery period and risk of tummy tuck scars. A type of non-surgical tummy tuck used is laser tummy tuck surgery. The advantages of laser tummy tuck procedure includes shorter recovery period, absence of tummy tuck scars, and ability to reach areas where it is impossible for traditional tummy tuck procedure to reach.

Both men and women who have overall good general health are suitable candidates for tummy tuck surgery. Several reasons including dramatic or frequent weight fluctuations, and aging, may be responsible for weakening the abdominal muscles of a man. Among aging men who are concerned with natural fat redistribution to the midsection, common procedure such as male abdominoplasty or male tummy tuck is recommended. Although liposuction differs from abdominoplasty but sometimes the surgeon prefers to perform liposuction as a part of a tummy tuck. Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty procedure) usually provides technically permanent results, however, the positive outcome may be affected by significant weight fluctuations. Proper exercise or weight reduction program cannot be replaced with a tummy tuck procedure. Like in any other cosmetic surgery, some complications are observed in tummy tuck procedure. They include pain, infection, swelling, blood clots or bleeding under the skin flap, bruising, numbness, and overall tiredness. The people who are under high risk of developing these complications are those with poor circulation, heart, liver, or lung disease, diabetes, or a smoker. 

There is a wide variation in the abdominoplasty cost all over the country and even within locales of countries. The cost of tummy tuck procedure in India is low when compared to other countries. The tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) prices include both the surgery cost and the additional required costs. The cost of abdominoplasty, just like other cosmetic surgery operations, depends upon various factors like patient’s age, their weight and health state. Based on the individuals, other costs may also be involved after the operation. As compared with traditional full tummy tuck, the cost in mini tummy tuck is generally less.
