Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
An abdominoplasty is an excellent operation for women (or men after bariatric surgery) who have loose skin above and below the belly button that does not go away with weight loss or exercises.
A tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) is one of the most commonly performed body recontouring surgeries in the Middle East since Bariatric surgery (Stomach Sleeve etc.) very common in theese countries. If you have a bulging of your abdomen, excess abdominal skin and a saggy tummy some kind od abdominoplasty is what you may need. About 50 % of the cases are together with the laxity of the abdominal muscle (rectus abdominis muscle) so that a combination of surgical muscle duplication, liposuction and skin excision will be necessary.
If your skin laxity and muscle weakness problems are limited to the area below the belly button, you may be a good canidate for a mini-abdominoplasty or so called "Honey Moon Tummy Tuck". This is a surgery with a shorter scar and faster healing time (shorter down time). Also the belly button will not be removed during this procedure. The scars of the mini-tummy tuck are permanent but definetly much shorter than the standard abdominoplaty.
This technique solves the problems of only the lower abdomen and usually performed in younger women who develop a skin excess or bulging problem after pregnancy and delivery.
I always combine Abdominoplasties with Vaser Liposuction (Ultrasound Fat melting) and Renuvion (J-Plasma skin tightening with Radiofrequency). Dr. Ziya Saylan is one of the first doctors who has used these new technologies successfully on his patients in UAE and improved his Tummy Tuck results.
You may have been born with a weak abdominal skin and muscle. Also, weight fluctuations and pregnancies can stretch the skin to the point that it will no longer contract.Your abdominal muscle can become lax through inactivity or stretched and separated because of pregnancy (Hernia).
If you have a fat bulge above and below the belly button and a muscle laxity of the anterior abdomen with excess skin of the abdominal wall, your abdominal fat must be liposuctioned, muscle tightened and the excess skin will be removed.
