Abdominoplasty is a procedure that improves your abdominal muscles and flattens your stomach by removing extra fat and skin. This surgical procedure is also referred to as a tummy tuck. Depending on how much skin and fat is removed, tummy tucks can be classified as “partial” or “total” abdominoplasty procedures. One approach to keep the body elegant and sleek is to make dietary improvements and exercise. However, even exercise may not always be effective in reducing abdominal fat.
Individuals who are worried about losing abdominal fat choose abdominoplasty. Although a tummy tuck is not the same as liposuction, the two operations can be combined. Abdominoplasty may appear to be a simple procedure, but it is a big operation. Abdominoplasty should only be considered by men and women who are in generally good health but want to tone up their abdomen and lose extra fat. The success rate of tummy tuck in Thailand is greater as compared to other countries.

General anesthesia is used to put the patient into a temporary slumber before the surgeon cuts the patient’s abdomen. This is done to ensure that the patient feels no pain or discomfort during the procedure.
Between the pubic hairline and the belly button, the surgeon makes a horizontal cut. The incision’s shape and size are determined by whether the patient is undergoing a full tummy tuck or a minor tummy tuck, as well as the amount of fat in the abdomen region. For the total procedure of abdominoplasty, a second cut around the navel may be made to remove extra fat. Then the surgeons bring down the upper abdominal skin remove or pulled out the extra fat. This is also known as trimming of the skin. After this rest of the skin is fixed with the help of stitches. For the case of complete tummy tuck surgery, a new opening is made on the belly button. After the surgery to close the cuts stitches, clips, and tapes are used.
