Abdominoplasty is a commonly performed body-contouring procedure to improve the shape and tone of your abdomen. This operation is often referred to as a ‘tummy tuck’. The operation is suitable for people with loose abdominal skin following pregnancy or significant weight loss, or if you have fatty bulges in the lower tummy that you just can’t get rid of with exercise. An abdominoplasty removes any excess skin and fat as well as improving the abdominal contour by tightening the muscle layer. Liposuction is often performed at the same time to optimise the result. The surgery results in a firmer abdomen with a more flattering contour. It is not a weight loss surgery (Bariatric Surgery). PRE OPERATIVE ASSESSMENT It is important for you to tell your surgeon the specific areas that concern you. These may include loose skin, stretch marks, fatty bulges, loose abdominal wall muscle tone and also other medical problems which can affect wound healing, such as smoking and diabetes, as well as risk factors for deep venous thrombosis (DVT or leg vein clots). People contemplating future pregnancies or significant weight loss are best to defer surgery. The expected scars, as well as the other risks of the operation will be explained. THE SURGERY Abdominoplasty is performed under a general anaesthesia. The surgical scar is at the lower most part of the abdomen thus hiding the scar. There are many variations on the procedure ranging from a mini-abdominoplasty with laparoscopic abdominal wall tightening to a full abdominoplasty involving removal of excess skin and fat, tightening of the abdominal wall muscles and repositioning of the umbilicus (belly button). AFTER THE SURGERY After the operation your abdomen or stomach will feel very tight and you may have a slightly flexed posture for a couple of weeks. This means you will be slightly bent over, not able to stand up completely straight. Most patients stay in Hospital for 2-4 days. Recovery times vary with most people being able to return to work in two to four weeks, with no sport or heavy lifting for 6-8 weeks.

Post Bariatric Surgery TIP 3 Know why protein rich food is important after undergoing a Bariatric Surgery. Body needs protein to build and maintain tissue and muscles. It promotes metabolic activity which in turn burns fat. It is also needed to heal wounds. Eating protein-rich foods first at every meal promotes healing from your surgery and to help you maintain lean muscle as you lose weight. So it is advised to intake protein rich food after Bariatric surgery. Ideally it is best if cooked using low-fat cooking methods. Choose lean protein like skinless chicken. Recommended protein intake is 60-65 gms of protein each day. But sometimes, it is difficult to get that amount through diet only. It can be compensated by protein drinks.
