Overview- Women and men are keen to get into a toned and flat physique. They look out for effective ways to achieve it, one of which is tummy tuck surgery. It is also known as abdominoplasty surgery.

Pregnancy or significant weight loss following diet or a bariatric surgery results in abdominal muscles protruding and stretching with internal split and damage to muscles. Along with this, there is also loose skin with stretch marks and with accumulation of fat in the subcutaneous layer which drapes the abdomen like an apron. Diet and exercise can reduce the fat collections to some extent, but the loose skin and stretched muscles need surgical correction. Dr. Sandhya Balasubramanyan addresses all three issues. A youthful umbilicus or belly button can also be created. Abdominoplasty or Tummy tuck is a common procedure men and women opt for to improve the shape of your abdominal area by removing excess fat, and loose skin along with surgical tightening of your abdominal musculature. This yields a youthful contour to the abdomen.

If you are searching for the best surgeon for abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery, you should consult Dr. Sandhya Balasubramanyan. She is renowned for providing the best tummy tuck surgery in Bangalore.

2) A full Abdominoplasty is done for individuals with muscle stretch of the upper and lower abdomen, Diastasis recti, excessive laxity of skin and fat and an umbilicus which has descended down. It removes all the stretch marks in the lower abdomen, pulling the normal skin from above downwards.

3) Lipoabdominoplasty is a 3D liposuction combined with a mini or full abdominoplasty for a better definition of the waistline and to get rid of the love handles.

4) Circumferential abdominoplasty-  This is opted in individuals with significant weight loss or body changes with sagging skin along the stomach, sides, buttocks and back. A long incision like a belt is placed along the lower abdomen and skin with fat is removed all along. The buttocks are lifted up and the abdomen is made taut.

 Procedure Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty is done under general anesthesia in the operating room. Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a multi-step procedure. To provide the best tummy tuck surgery in Bangalore, Dr. Sandhya Balasubramanyan follows the following steps:

Your Plastic surgeon would mark preoperatively all the areas of liposuction and skin removal based on the clinical assessment. An incision is placed along the pantyline crease extending to the hips on either side based on the extent of skin excess. The rectus muscle diastasis or divarication is repaired with sutures. The excess lower abdominal skin and fat are excised. This removes the stretch marks in the lower tummy to a huge extent. The abdominal skin is then pulled down snugly to the lower abdomen with the umbilicus being positioned through a tiny incision in its new location. The final scar is hidden along the pantyline crease.

Recovery And Postoperative After Care

You may need to be admitted for a day or two in the hospital. Dressings are placed at the incision sites which can be changed every 2-3 days. All the sutures placed are dissolvable.  The drain placed in the abdomen will be removed the next day. Medications for pain and faster wound healing will be prescribed. Generally, wounds take 7-10 days for healing. Though gentle movements are advised as early as the next day after surgery, your routine activities can be started in 10-14 days' time. You will be able to return to your moderate/ vigorous exercises after 4-6 weeks. A compression garment or a corset is advised for 6 weeks.

Points To Remember In Aftercare At Home: 

  • Keep the suture line clean. Change dressings after shower
  • Wear the compression garment  - 6 weeks 
  • Walk the first 2 weeks with a mild stoop to release tension along the suture line.
  • Start on gentle short walks as early as 2 weeks  and moderate exercises after 4-6 weeks
  • Sleep in a comfortable position with pillows to support your back and legs .
  • Dont sleep on your tummy 
  • Maintain a healthy diet and drink plenty of water.

Is liposuction of tummy same as tummytuck  procedure ?

No , Liposuction is an option for individuals with  relatively good skin elasticity . It is done when there are stubborn fat deposits  not responding to exercises and diet .  Tummy tuck is an open surgical procedure to address excess fat, skin and weak muscles .  While the recovery of liposuction is faster in 1-2 weeks, tummy tuck takes 2-4 weeks for recovery . 

What are the  do’s and don'ts before and after surgery ?

You will be prescribed few blood tests and advised a ultrasound scan of abdomen. Quit smoking 2 weeks before surgery. Drink plenty of water- hydration is important in recovery from anesthesia.  If you are on any medications , inform your physician about the surgery and if any dose adjustment is needed. 
Following surgery  - Wear compressioin corset for 6 weeks. Avoid strain on the abdomen muscles like lifting weight, climbing stairs very fast, vigorous exercises, swimming, badminton for 6 weeks.
Walk with a slight stoop immediately after surgery for 10 days . Sleep in a comfortable position with pillow support .

Will the results of tummy tuck surgery  change over time ? is it permanent ?

Results of tummy tuck surgery will remain as long  your weight is stable  and has no major fluctuations.  Pregnancy after tummy tuck can change the shape of abdomen to some extent  as it stretches the muscle.

How do I take care of the long sutureline after surgery ?

Though tummytuck suture lines are long, only dissolvable sutures are placed under the skin( subcuticular) , hence change of dressings is a simple one which can be done by oneself at home,.. We provide waterproof bandages with antiseptic cream.You can start your shower as early as 4th day.

When will the scars of abdominoplasty fade ?.

Wounds heal in 10-14 days time to leave a slightly pink suture line. Scar cream    massages and silicone sheets are advised after surgery which helps in remodelling of scar in the next few months . It fades almost  80 % by 3- 6 months  and completely by 1 year

How many days will I take to recover fully ?

It can vary from patient to patient since each body behaves differently while healing . Generally speaking 2 weeks is the time for immediate recovery after surgery , wound healing, getting back to work , and doing your routine chores . 
But it takes 6 weeks to do all the pre- surgery activities like vigourous exercises, lifting weights and carrying babies,  sports activities like swimming and court games .

What will be the cost of tummy tuck surgery in Bangalore? 

The cost of any cosmetic surgery procedure can be broken down to multiple components.

  • Treatment area- the cost depends on the extent of excess fat, muscle weakness and skin excess that needs to be addressed . A simple minituck would cost lesser than a lipoabdominoplasty where 360 degree lipo and a tummytuck is combined.
  • Surgeons expertise- Based on this, cost can be higher with  experienced surgeons  with expertise
  • Hospital / clinic facility - Based on the facilities provided , the room you choose cost can vary 
  • Anesthesia fees- This depends on the duration of procedure and if done under local anesthesia or general anesthesia .

The rough cost of tummy tuck would  be 1.5- 2 lakhs  in Bangalore . You would get a accurate cost by meeting with the surgeon after consultation .
