Another reason for a tummy tuck may be a rectus diastase. It is the distraction of the straight abdominal muscles, it creates a tactile gap. This divergence is most pronounced in the umbilicus and is much more common in women than in men, as the strains on the abdominal muscles can be overstretched.
With a tummy tuck is the possibility, in addition to the physical training to adapt to the unpleasant, hanging abdominal region of the desired performance. This can be based, for example, on the tight abdominal wall of a slim, well-trained person.
For an aesthetically optimal result patients meet the best conditions, if they are already in good physical condition before the tummy tuck and if their fat deposits in the abdominal area as well as flaccid tissue, neither through training or diet.
If a weight loss or pregnancy is planned, the tummy tuck should be scheduled later, as the straight abdominals, which are surgically tightened, could otherwise stretch again.
Abdominal Surgery: What you should know
After a skin incision, running above pubic hair, and lifting off a larger area of skin, your doctor will remove larger fat deposits and sagging tissue from the entire front abdominal area during the tummy tuck.
In addition, a tightening of the abdominal wall muscles, so the straight abdominal muscles, take place. These are approximated in the middle, tightened and fixed in their new position, so that a firmer abdominal wall and a narrowed waist are achieved. The previously dissolved skin area is pulled down again and excess skin is removed. The hidden navel is reshaped and positioned so that the scar is barely visible.
The classic procedure creates a scar in the area of the bikini zone and also a small circumferential scar by dislocation of the navel, which is restored in an aesthetically-natural shape. In a partial abdominoplasty caused by the reduced incision smaller scars and the navel is not offset, since only the skin between the navel and cut is tightened. As a rule, a liposuction is performed in addition to the tummy tuck.
Your attending physician at the FONTANA-KLINIK in Mainz will of course explain in detail after a detailed examination, which procedure and which cut would be used for you, as this depends on various factors. The incision guide will always choose your doctor so that scars remain small and unremarkable. The result of the tummy tuck depends on the condition of individual factors such as skin, subcutaneous tissue and musculature.
