Tummy Tuck Lima Peru

Abdominoplasty or "Tummy Tuck" is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the abdomen, as well as tighten the underlying musculature. This procedure, performed in our Clinic, will tighten stretched, wrinkled skin, creating a firmer, flatter abdomen and narrower waistline. Protruding abdomens or those with loose, wrinkled, or hanging skin and fatty tissue, causes distress to thousands of people. Weak abdominal muscles, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and surgical scars can wreak havoc on our lower midsections. For many people, this area does not respond well to diet and exercise. It is for this reason, that someone would choose to have a Tummy Tuck. Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck is not, however, a substitute for weight reduction, and it is not meant as a treatment for obesity. For that, we have several other options available, and will discuss that further in other articles. The ideal candidate for a tummy tuck has relatively normal weight with weak abdominal muscles and excess skin and fat of the lower abdomen. Loss of skin elasticity, which frequently occurs with slight obesity in older patients, or extreme fluctuations in weight, can result in loose, stretched, hanging skin, as well as fat in the lower abdomen. These conditions can be improved with this procedure. If stretch marks are a problem, only the marks on the excess or hanging skin will be removed. Abdominal wall hernias and/or abdominal scars can sometimes be complicating factors that may also be corrected during tummy tuck surgery. In some patients, we may recommend a less radical "mini" or "modified" tummy tuck. These procedures can be individualized to treat, conditions such as loose muscle tone without excess skin and fat. The procedure can also treat excess skin and fat without loose muscle tone. A "mini" abdominoplasty usually treats conditions or problems isolated to the lower abdomen. In these cases, an incision around the belly button (umbilicus) may not be necessary. The abdominal wall and muscles may be tightened depending on the requirements of the patient. Since no two of us are crested equally, an in office evaluation muct be done before we can recommend the proper procedure.
