Prolonged deposition of excess fat in the anterior abdominal wall makes the skin and underlying soft tissue to grow along and become droopy. Males and females with excess abdominal skin as well as fat need a surgical procedure to remove both fat as well as the skin. This procedure is known as abdominoplasty.
If the excess skin is minimal we can get away with a mini abdominoplasty or a mini tummy tuck. The patients in whom the hang or droop of extra skin and fat is significant will require a traditional abdominoplasty, wherein the umbilicus needs to be repositioned as well in addition to removal of excess tissue. Depending on whether the abdominal muscles are stretched and separated Dr. Mohan Thomas, India’s leading body contouring surgeon might decide to tighten these abdominal muscles as well.
