What is Abdominoplasty ( Tummy Tuck ) ?
Abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck) for creating a shaped and flattened tummy
Whenever you experience a build-up of excessive fat around your abdomen, the volume of fat can be reduced by liposuction; however, this does not get rid of saggy skin. If you have sagged and flabby belly fat or if you happen to have excessive stretch marks or scarring from having baby birth, it can guarantee your perfect stomach contour.
- 01 Those who want to remove flab and stretch marks following pregnancy
- 02 Those whose want to eliminate saggy belly fat following excessive weight loss or liposuction
- 03 Those who want to remove uneven belly fat following failed liposuction
- 04 Those who want to remove scarring from C-section
- 05 Those who want to improve their back hipline
Types of JW’s abdominoplasty and operation procedures
01 For those whose abdominal obesity is high and belly fat is excessively sagging
- Total Abdominoplasty (liposuction and tummy tuck)
Total abdominoplasty is an ideal surgery to those who want to reduce overall fat and skin around their abdomen. Liposuction is performed from above the navel and down to the pubic region. After liposuction, excessive saggy skin is eliminated. While leaving nerves and blood vessels largely undisturbed, the excess skin is effectively removed.
02 For those whose lower abdomen is sagging
- Endoscopic Mini Abdominoplasty
A single incision is made in the area under the navel, and then Endoscopic Mini Abdominoplasty is performed to remove excess skin. The ideal candidate for this tummy tuck has laxity and protrusion below the navel. Conventional Mini Abdominoplasty cannot tighten slack abdominal muscles following pregnancy; however, JW’s Endoscopic Mini Abdominoplasty can ensure the sculpting of a beautiful tummy line by tightening the abdominal muscles (An effect similar to wearing a corset around one’s belly).
03 For those whose upper belly is sagging
- Pick-up Abdominoplasty
For those who only experience upper abdominal bulging, Pick-up Abdominoplasty, which lifts belly skin through making incisions under the breast, is performed. Any faint scarring caused by the operation is naturally covered by the under-breast wrinkles, leaving it nearly invisible.
※ You are required to pay special attention to yourself in order to care for any complications, including bleeding, inflammation and infection, following the operation.
