As the name suggests, it is a procedure to remove excess skin and fat over the anterior abdomen. These fats are usually not removable via workouts and diet hence tummy tuck is a much-needed procedure. Whereas removing the skin during this procedure is to get rid of the excess skin that doesn’t tone up with workouts either.
The incision for the procedure is usually done at the lower part of the abdomen so as to hide the scars under the bikini line.
A tummy tuck procedure is done only if the muscle wall is proven strong enough. Certain muscle walls are “weak” and requires repairing, hence themuscle divarication repair procedure is done instead.
Muscle Divarication Repair
It is a procedure done to repair the muscle in the abdomen area, for example after a caesarean birthing. When the muscles are split apart, it will make the tummy wall loose and hanging out. Thus, the repair of the muscle is needed where the muscles are stitched together and let be to heal on it’s own.
