Medically known as abdominoplasty, this is carried out to remove the excess skin and fat in the abdominal area and tighten the loose abdominal muscles. The result will be the flat tummy that you always wanted.
Dr. Karishma’s approach is unique because she combines most tummy tucks with liposuction in the hip, waistline and upper abdomen area, to provide 3-dimensional slimming results.
A Tummy Tuck is a highly individualized procedure. You should go in for it only if you feel that your tummy is too big or sagging, and not to please someone else.
You should be medically fit and physically active. You should also be mentally motivated and have realistic expectations.
Liposuction is performed to contour the waistline and eliminate the ‘love handles’ along with removing the excess lower belly skin. The navel is relocated to improve its position and shape.
This is a modified Tummy tuck with a shorter scar line and dispenses with a few steps involved in standard Lipoabdominoplasty.
This is done only for patients who have excess fat and weak muscles but no excess skin. A short incision is made in the lower abdomen and one just above the navel, only to repair the abdominal muscles. This is combined with liposuction on the whole abdomen.
While all these procedures usually are done under general anesthesia, Mini Abdominoplasty can also be done under local anesthesia with IV sedation.
You will need to stay overnight in Dr. Karishma’s Aesthetic Centre and return the next day.
You can return to house work in 4 to 5 days and regular outdoor activities in 1 to 2 weeks. After 4 to 6 weeks you can start exercising gradually. You will need to wear the pressure garment that we provide you for 6 weeks.
Important: For best results you should monitor your dietary intake and plan to take 2 weeks off to encourage proper healing.
