Tummy tuck is very common surgery, which can help you get the kind of look you want for your stomach. Tummy tuck surgery is suitable for people who have tried all kinds of exercises and diets to tone their stomach but have not been successful. The tummy tuck surgery is also known as abdominoplasty.
A tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty is suitable for both men and women who are in good health condition. However a tummy reduction surgery is not to be confused with liposuction. However sometimes liposuction is performed as a part of the tummy reduction surgery to keep the fat away.
Abdominoplasty in Mumbai India is also a suitable process for women who gained a lot of weight in their pregnancies and the skin is stretched because of multiple pregnancies. The weight goes with after the pregnancy but the lose skin remains and tummy reduction surgery can help reduce the skin and tighten the muscles. Men and women who have been very obese at some time in their life and now have lost weight through exercise and surgical procedures. Then the tummy tuck surgery can help tone up the loose skin in abdominal area.
However your surgeon will advise you against having the tummy reduction surgery if you are a women and plan on having more children. The reason behind is that during the abdominoplasty, the vertical muscles of the stomach are tightened and in case of future pregnancies these muscles can get separated.

Complete abdominoplasty : in this process the abdomen is cut from hipbone to hipbone. The incision is made as low as the pubic hair line. This type of process is most suitable for patients who need the most correction. This way the surgeon will be able to contour the skin and reshape and alter the tissue and muscle as needed. The belly button opening is also changed because the naval tissue is also manipulated.
Partial or mini abdominoplasty : As the name suggests this type of process is done when the fat is located in the area near the naval. The belly button is not moved in this process. This process does not require big incisions and sometimes done with the help of endoscope. This process takes considerably shorter time too.
