Increasing social media influence and fitness trends have led to an increasing desire for a slimmer, flat, and toned stomach. But the millennial lifestyle comes with its own disadvantages, such as hectic corporate life, stress, and processed food habits which are directly related to weight gain. Apart from this, fat or sagging skin can also happen due to various factors such as ageing, hereditary, previous surgical procedure, pregnancy, or rapid weight loss. People who resort to stricter diets or surgical procedures for weight loss or women with multiple pregnancies may find it difficult to achieve the desired goals for a toned abdomen. This happens because the muscles that hold the stomach skin don’t return to its original shape after the expansion due to weight or pregnancy. Once the stomach skin is stretched, and underlying muscle is separated, they cannot be brought to original form with lifestyle changes only
But modern science has a solution to this problem. You can finally regain your self-esteem and confidence back and ditch compression wear by having a desired abdomen with Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty - a safe and common procedure for removal of excess fat and sagging skin from the abdomen area.
The Tummy tuck is a targeted cosmetic surgery procedure to eliminate sagging skin & fat from the abdomen. This procedure gives the patient a desirable slim, toned and sculpted abdomen. All excess fat and skin are removed during the procedure and it can help reduce some of the stretch marks as some part of the skin is removed and other part is stretched downwards. At times Tummy Tuck is used in conjunction with Liposuction or Fat Transfer to provide the desired contours
Upon initial diagnosis, our surgeons would plan a bespoke treatment plan for each patient. They will also assess if you need a Tummy Tuck or Liposuction or combination of treatments. The type of procedure and amount of fat/skin to be removed would determine the size of the cut/scar and its location. However, in almost all successful cases, these scars are strategically placed and are not visible while wearing swimwear. Also, a normal look and position belly button is achieved.

Any surgical process is a commitment and one should self-evaluate whether a particular procedure is suitable for achieving personal body goals. Surgical procedures necessitate appropriate recovery time before returning to normal activities. The full effect of the surgery also takes some time to realize. Before making a decision, one should ask the following questions to themselves
A pre-anesthesia check-up and consultation is done with the anesthesiologist before planning the surgery, where you would be explained everything about the procedure. In most cases, the surgery will be done under general anesthesia and you would not feel anything during the course of the procedure.
Depending on the procedure's type and complexity, you may need to stay in the medical center either for a few hours or the surgeon might want you to stay for a day before sending you home. The recovery period from the surgery is different for different people, but it takes few days for the stitches to heal. In most cases the drains are left in for a few days, and you would be explained how to manage the drains. You may be advised some medication such as antibiotics, pain killers and anticoagulants post the surgery. In all such procedures, you are supposed to wear compression garments to keep the swelling in control, avoid fluid build-up, and support the abdomen. Your surgeon may advise you for the treatments like VelaShape III for few weeks after you have healed from the initial surgery. Just like in case of any surgery, you would not be allowed to do any strenuous work or do any work-out or drive your car for few weeks after the surgery. So, remember to arrange for your drive back home.
Since these are planned procedures, it is important to plan your days post-surgery so that you have a smooth transition
The results of the procedure differ from one individual to another as the problem is never the same. However, one should expect the following results after complete healing:
· Natural-looking slim and toned abdomen
· No excess skin around the abdomen
· Confident you!
Generally speaking, the results of a Tummy tuck should last as long as one maintains a healthy lifestyle and doesn’t gain any unnecessary weight.
Mini tummy tuck is same day procedure and simple tummy tuck can also be same day procedure. All other procedures may need a stay for a night or two. Post operation check will be needed for wound management and dressing change. Most people are able to walk the same day or the next day of surgery but it takes time to resume full normal activities.
Many variables that go in deciding the price like treatment area, complexity, local vs general anesthesia and time needed. The surgeon will be able to assess to provide an accurate estimate. Depending on the procedure, a price range would be between AED 12,000 to AED 50,000.

Tummy Tucks are aesthetic procedures, and as a general rule, they are not covered under medical insurance.
A Tummy Tuck is different than Liposuction since, in this procedure, an incision is made under the bottom of the skin near abdominal wall. The surgeon sews the muscle in the abdominal wall, stretches the skin over the abdomen and trims off the excess skin. Unlike Liposuction, where cannulas are used for sucking out fat from a particular area. Both procedures are performed under general anesthesia.
Although this being one the popular treatments and performed by our expert surgeons, sometimes a patient has to do a follow-up visit for wound care or infection if proper care is not taken. Other possible risks could include changes in sensation due to repositioning of abdominal nerves, fluid accumulation which needs to be drained, and tissue necrosis which must also be removed by the Best Tummy Tuck surgeon in Dubai.
