So how do you decide what kind of treatment is appropriate for you? If you're ready to take a big step and get rid of excess skin and fat around your belly, but don't know which treatment is right for you, read on.
A tummy tuck is being used effectively for years to help people maintain a slim and more shapely mid-section. This procedure eliminates excessive areas of fat and excess skin on the upper and lower abdomen while strengthening the larger, deeper muscles that may have spread and become lax during pregnancy and/or weight changes, affecting the overall contour and flatness of the abdomen. Tummy tuck operation can either be done as a small, standard / traditional, or more prolonged operation to try to reduce the length of the mark while still removing the required amount of skin.
For people with larger amounts of extra skin and fat to be removed, such as patients who have undergone surgery in weight loss or who have lost a significant amount of weight, belt lipectomy may be better suited. Belt lipectomy is like an abdominoplasty, but it stretches all the way around the torso, allowing the lateral and inner thighs to be re-suspensed in addition to strengthening the abdomen.
You are likely to be a good applicant for abdominoplasty when you only have a small amount of additional skin and fat to eliminate. If you have had bariatric surgery or have lost a lot of weight with substantial excess skin accumulation, you may be probably more suited to belt lipectomy.
