Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to lift the abdomen, remove excess skin, correct the waistline and subcutaneous fat tissue on the anterior abdominal wall.
Tummy tuck procedure becomes necessary after a subsequent weight gain or loss, after pregnancy, childbirth, and in other conditions when the anterior abdominal wall muscles get overstretched, causing diastasis (muscle divergence).
In most cases, it's almost impossible to remove diastasis with the help of running or regular exercise due to the severe anatomical changes. In such cases, a plastic surgeon can perform an abdominoplasty procedure to tighten the stomach, making the figure slim and harmonious.
There are multiple reasons to understand if you are a suitable candidate for an abdominoplasty:
Modern uses today in the field of aesthetic surgery have expanded the possibilities of tummy tuck surgery, allowing conditions for same and minimally traumatic operations. Nowadays, the most popular methods of abdominoplasty include:
Complete Abdominoplasty: In this belly plastic surgery, the doctor corrects the most evident changes in the contours of the abdomen due to the sharp increase or weight loss, postponing childbirth, and various other abdominal surgeries. Generally, this procedure is performed under anaesthesia, which allows you to completely restore fat deposits and excess skin, remove diastasis of the rectus muscle and form beautifully toned abdominal contours.
Mini Abdominoplasty: This mini tummy tuck surgery is performed because of the loss of muscle tone in the abdominal zone, slight ptosis of the abdominal skin, and the formation of excess fatty tissues in the lower abdominal wall. The procedure is performed by Dr Soni with access through an incision in the bikini area. Most often, during this surgery, general anaesthesia is administered.
Endoscopic Abdominoplasty: In this kind of plastic surgery, an endoscope is used to correct and tighten the muscular corset of the abdominal zone. Usually, this procedure is only recommended in cases where diastasis is observed without stretching the skin as well as without adipose tissue.

Individual Approach: Depending on the complexity and degree of excess skin, patient's body type and adipose tissue, liposuction, mini tummy tuck surgery, or classical abdominoplasty procedure is performed.
