Say goodbye to unsightly bulges and hello to firmer, tighter waist with best ever Abdominoplasty/Tummytuck in India. Kyra Clinic offers safe and effective solution to loose skin and excess fat around abdominal area with expert surgeon and latest techniques of tummy tuck in Punjab.

What is Abdominoplasty?
Abdominoplasty or "tummy tuck" is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removal of excess skin and fat to make the abdomen area firmer. Directed at the middle and lower abdomen, it tightens the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. Patients who suffer from loose tissues after pregnancy or sagging skin after major weight loss are the best candidates for this procedure.

What Tummy tuck won't do?
A tummy tuck is in no way an alternative for weight loss. It is not to be confused with liposuction.

While tummy tuck technically guarantees permanent results, the positive outcome can be rendered ineffective to a great extent if there are significant fluctuations in body weight in future.

Women who are considering pregnancies in future would do best to postpone a tummy tuck for later.

Tummy tuck is not likely to correct stretch marks unless they are located on the areas of excess lower abdomen skin that will be excised. However, they are usually lightened and become less prominent.

There are several kinds of Abdominoplasty, depending on the extent of the problem. Dr. Vikas Gawri M.S., M.C.H. (Cosmetic Surgery) after a detailed consultation decides what sort of Abdominoplasty a patient requires.



Complete Abdominoplasty
A complete abdominoplasty generally follows below steps:-
An incision is made from hip to hip just above the pubic area.
Another incision is made to free the navel from the surrounding skin.
The skin is separated from the abdominal wall to expose the muscles and fascia that requires tightening.
The muscle fascia wall is tightened with sutures.
Liposuction is often used at this point to refine the transition zones of the abdominal sculpture.
Any excess fluid is drained and dressing and sometimes a compression garment are applied.

Partial Abdominoplasty
Following steps are adopted for partial (or mini)
A smaller incision is made to detach the skin and fat of the lower abdomen from muscle fascia.
Excess skin removed and sometimes a portion of the abdominal muscle fascia wall is tightened.
Liposuction is used to contour the transition zone before the flap is stitched back into place.

Circumferential Abdominoplasty
Circumferential abdominoplasty surgery extends the normal abdominoplasty to include buttock lift. Since the resulting scar runs all the way around the body, it is often referred as Belt Lipectomy. Patients who have undergone enormous weight loss are the best candidates for this sort of surgery.

Combination Procedures
Abdominoplasty is often combined with other cosmetic procedure for more striking results. The procedures that are combines with tummy tuck include liposuction contouring, breast reduction, breast lift, or occasionally hysterectomy, depending on the reason for the hysterectomy. "Mommy makeover" is popular name for breast procedures performed in conjunction with an abdominoplasty with often dramatic results.

How much does a tummy tuck cost?
Cost of Abdominoplasty can vary depending on the qualification and experience of a surgeon, type of procedure you choose and the geographic location of the hospital. Since it falls in the category of cosmetic surgery, most health insurances do not cover tummy tuck surgery or complications arising after it.

The overall cost of Tummy tuck may include: Anesthesia fees, hospital or surgical facility costs, Medical tests, Post-surgery garments, prescriptions for medication and Surgeon’s fee.

At Kyra Clinic, cost of the procedure is significantly less than in any western country with similar facilities, caliber and experience of Dr. Vikas Gawri and results.

Post Operation Recovery from Tummy tuck
Post abdominoplasty, dressings or bandages will be applied to your incisions. Your abdomen is likely to be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling and provide support to your abdomen as it heals after surgery.

Expect insertion of small, thin tubes under the skin temporarily to drain any excess blood or fluid that may have collected.
