Tummy Tuck in iran

You’ve worked hard to lose weight and to improve your muscle tone through diet and exercise. Nevertheless, you may have some excess skin on your belly that creates an unflattering look. For some, it may seem that no matter how many crunches you do, you just can’t seem to get those abdominal muscles anywhere near a six-pack or a flat tummy.

When you have reached your desired weight but still don’t have your desired shape, it may be time to consider Tummy Tuck in iran. Unfortunately, no creams will shrink excess tummy skin, no amount of crunches will tighten loose stomach muscles and oftentimes even the healthiest diet will not reduce certain fat deposits along the abdominal wall.  Tummy Tuck surgery in iran by a member of iranian society of plastic surgeons can help you address these problem areas and achieve a flat and toned appearance.

what is Abdominoplasty(tummy tuck surgery)

Abdominoplasty or "tummy tuck" Fat builds up in more than one place in the body, in the chest, buttocks and thighs, but abdominal fat is a difficult problem to solve, because it soon turns into tricholism. The remaining fat in different places in the body is easy to burn through healthy food and exercise.

Getting rid of belly fat is not easy, especially in some cases such as cesarean delivery or obesity. In these cases, we resort to liposuction , which ensures that each woman dissolves abdominal fat and is finally disposed of.(all about liposuction)

Fatigue builds up because of excess obesity, which sometimes results from eating greedily. Sometimes the craving for food sometimes reaches the stage of food addiction. The obese person must go to nutrition clinics to follow specific diets to help get rid of these fats.

You can now take a food addiction test to see if you are moderately eating or whether it is time to visit your obese doctor to maintain your health and your life.

Removes Abdominoplasty  , fat from your body using suction. During the abdominal  liposuction process, small, thin and bendable tubes (cannula) are inserted through small pieces in the skin. Abdominoplasty is carried out through these tubes where the doctor moves the tubes under the skin to target specific fatty deposits.

In recent years, improved abdominal liposuction techniques have made safer, easier and less painful

 after Abdominoplasty 

liposuction and abdominoplasty at same time

After the tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), the area of ​​the body that has been treated is firmly wrapped to help reduce swelling, bruising and pain. Flexible bandages, tape, support hose (such as those used to treat varicose veins), or a special belt, or any other type of synthetic clothing, can be used depending on which part of the body has been treated. You may have to wear compression or wrap clothes for 3 to 4 weeks. Expect a lot of bruising and swelling for at least 7 to 10 days.

The fluid may be removed from the incision sites for several days. Antibiotics may be given to reduce the risk of infection.

Most people are able to get up and move once the treatment is completed and after the effects of anesthesia are worn and any calming. You can return to your normal activities once you feel comfortable, although this may take several days to a few weeks. Most people can return to work in a few days. Recovery may take longer if large areas are processed.

Abdominoplasty and liposuction

Can i get abdominoplasty and liposuction at the same time?

The short answer is "Yes" and "No."

Yes, You can get liposuction of other areas such as the love-handles, thighs, or chest at the same time as a tummy-tuck. Plastic surgeons respect the total volume that can be removed in a typical outpatient setting (approximately 5 liters or 10 pounds of lipo fat). It may be safer to remove less fat if multiple other procedures are being done in addition to liposuction.

No, you shouldn't get liposuction of the abdomen and a tummy-tuck surgery at the same time. Typically, it is recommended to avoid liposuction of the abdomen itself at the same time as an abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) because the skin has trouble healing with the "double-hit" of a tummy-tuck and lipo of the same area. You can get liposuction of the abdomen at the same time if a mini-tummy tuck is being done, and that is a very popular combination in our practice.

Tummy tuck side effects

What are the long term side effects of abdominoplasty?

Temporary swelling, bruising, pain and numbness in and around treated areas.

Slight irritation and scarring around the incision sites where the ducts were inserted.

Loose skin or ripple. The skin is usually pulled and pulled back after a few months. But in some people the skin may remain a little loose.

Less common side effects include:

Permanent changes in skin color.

The skin surface varies over the treated area.

Damage to nerves and skin. The heat resulting from abdominal liposuction with the help of ultrasound may burn the skin or damage the subcutaneous tissue.

If you gain weight after liposuction, your body may store new fats in a different location than the removal of fat cells. New fat can grow inside your body, around your organs, such as the heart or liver. This type of fat can be more harmful to your body than the fat stored near your body's surface, such as your hips or thighs. Therefore, people who have abdominal liposuction need to be careful not to gain excess weight.

Weight Loss After A Tummy Tuck

If you are considering undergoing a tummy tuck procedure, you will definitely need to have realistic expectations as far as your weight loss goals are concerned. Your consultation with plastic surgeon will help you to understand whether you are a good tummy tuck candidate. The surgery does actually help patients to lose weight immediately and the results are actually long-term. However, you cannot opt to undergo tummy tuck as the only way to lose weight. In fact, you would be a good candidate if you have been exercising and observing the right diet to be near your normal weight. This is because tummy tuck will be needed to get rid of excess skin that remains folding and sagging around your abdomen. The excess fat that would be remaining can be transferred to any other areas of the body that may need shaping through cosmetic surgery.

Risk of abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty carries certain risks that may be serious or life-threatening. When making the decision to undergo such a procedure it is recommended to compare the benefits with the potential risks and complications. Hence, all patients must be informed on all the risks they are exposing themselves to. Severe complications occur however in rare cases and these include blood clots, thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications or infection.

Infection and blood clots are a serious potential risk after abdominoplasty, but which occur rarely. Infection is usually treated with antibiotics and drainage. Patients are recommended to move around as soon as possible after surgery to minimize their risks of developing blood clots. Pulmonary embolism, heart attack or stroke are very rare complications that may result after any type of surgery due to immobility after surgery which results in blood clots that may travel to the heart, lung or brain. Thus, pulmonary embolism is a serious risk after "tummy tuck" procedure and if they occur, they commonly happen within three weeks of the surgery, but more commonly within the first 72 hours after the procedure has been performed.

If complications occur, they usually delay the healing process. In rare cases, another surgery is needed to fix a potential complication. Skin necrosis is one of the complications that may require another procedure as the dead skin must be replaced by a skin graft. Although necrosis is extremely rare, smokers have an increased risk to develop skin necrosis. Stopping nicotine use and smoking several weeks before and several weeks after surgery cleans the body and improves the chance of an uneventful recovery.

One of the more common problems after an abdominoplasty is collection of fluid under the skin after the drains have been removed. A surgeon can aspirate the fluid with a needle. The drainage stops within a month and does not affect the final results.

The scars resulting from abdominoplasty are long, large in appearance, and permanent. The size of the scar depends on the amount of skin that has been cut off, the techniques used for the surgery, the surgeon's skills, and the body's ability to recover. Although this scar will never become invisible, it is usually placed under the swimsuit line so it is covered by clothes. It normally takes nine months to a year before scars flatten out and lighten in color.

These modern technologies include:

Liposuction The enlarged abdomen :

A local anesthetic is used to numb the area of ​​your body where the tube is inserted. After that, a large amount of an anesthetic solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine is injected into the adipose tissue before performing traditional abdominal liposuction. It may not require abdominal liposuction of the bulked general anesthesia (which makes you sleep during the procedure).

Abdominoplasty Assisted ultrasound: This technique uses ultrasound to liquefy fat, making it easier to remove. This technique may be especially useful in removing fat from the neck, upper abdomen, sides and back.

Laser assisted Abdominoplasty: This technique uses low energy waves to liquefy fat, which is removed through a small cannula.

Abdominoplasty is usually performed as an external procedure at a well-equipped doctor's clinic, emergency surgery center, or hospital. In general, it is not necessary to stay in the hospital for one night unless a large amount of fat is removed. Local anesthesia is used in some cases. You may give me or not a place to help you relax. If large area or large amount of fat is processed, general anesthesia or deep anesthesia can be used with local anesthetic.


How well Abdominoplasty works

Abdominoplasty is usually very effective in removing fat deposits in small areas. But if you regain weight after liposuction , it is likely that the fatty puffiness that has been removed or may appear in a different place.

Some improvement in the contour of the body is usually noticeable after surgery. The improvement may continue for several weeks or even months with the disappearance of swelling. The full effects of abdominal liposuction may not be visible for months to years.

Abdominoplasty (excluding laser liposuction) does not generally work to tighten the skin above the treated area. After removing the fat, the skin around the area may be slightly loose. It may take up to 6 months for the skin to tighten around the treated area. Some people's skin is very elastic and retracts more quickly than others' skin. The smaller skin tends to be more elastic than the older skin.

People who expect abdominal fat suction to help them lose weight are usually disappointed.


The abdominal liposuction process performed by an experienced practitioner in a properly equipped facility is usually safe. Having more than one area, or treating a very large area, may increase the risk of complications during or after the procedure.

What do we think about Abdominoplasty?

Liposuction should be performed only by a doctor who has special training in abdominal liposuction and skin surgery and how to respond to complications during surgery. You will also be less likely to have complications if you are not liposuction at the same time as other cosmetic procedures.

If you are trying to lose weight, Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for exercise and a balanced diet. In fact, most cosmetic surgeons agree that the best candidates for liposuction are healthy people who are in or near healthy weight but have stubborn fatty deposits that do not respond to exercise.

Possible risks of abdominoplasty include:

  • Bleeding
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Poor wound healing
  • Skin loss
  • Numbness or other changes in skin sensation
  • Anesthesia complications
  • Skin discoloration and/or prolonged swelling
  • Fatty tissue found deep in the skin might die (fat necrosis)
  • Major wound separation
  • Asymmetry
  • Recurrent looseness of skin
  • Pain, which may persist
  • Persistent swelling in the legs
  • Nerve damage
  • Possibility of revisional surgery
  • Hematoma (may occur in 3 to 4% of cases)
  • Keloid (heavy scar)
  • Seroma
  • Suture rupture
  • Swelling
  • Visible scar
  • Death

What is the difference between tummy tuck and liposuction?
Patients commonly ask what is the difference between tummy tuck and liposuction. They are both types of body contouring surgery. Tummy tuck and liposuction may improve definition and contour of the abdomen through very different techniques. Tummy tuck surgery involves resection of excess skin and fat, whereas liposuction removes fatty deposits only. Clinical examination will determine whether tummy tuck, liposuction, or sometimes a combination of both surgeries may best help a patient achieve his or her aesthetic goals. difference between tummy tuck and liposuction Considering tummy tuck or liposuction? What is the difference between tummy tuck and liposuction surgical techniques? Tummy tuck is a surgery that removes redundant skin and fatty tissue of the abdomen. It is performed under general anesthetic. An incision is made along the lower abdomen from hip to hip and around the belly button. Skin and fatty tissue are elevated above the abdominal wall to the level of the rib cage and xiphoid process. The soft tissues are redraped and excess skin and fat is removed at the level of the lower incision. Often following pregnancy or significant fluctuation in body weight, patients may develop a “rectus diastasis”, which is a separation or gap between the abdominal muscles centrally. Patients may feel this muscle separation when performing a sit-up and often report decreased core strength. During tummy tuck, the rectus muscles are stitched together and tightened through what is called the rectus plication. The belly button stays attached to the abdominal wall during the procedure to maintain its blood supply. It is brought out through the abdominal skin after the excess skin has been removed. Excess fatty tissue (“love handles”) in the flank region is not addressed by tummy tuck alone. Liposuction may be performed in combination with tummy tuck for these cases to remove the fatty deposits and improve contour of the flanks during the same surgery. Liposuction is a less invasive surgical procedure than tummy tuck. It removes localized fatty deposits but does not remove any skin. Depending on the extent of liposuction and body regions being treated, it may either be performed under general anesthetic or conscious sedation. For optimal results and to lower risk of complications, patients considering liposuction should be within 10% of their ideal body weight. It is an appropriate technique to address localized fatty deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. Liposuction will not result in significant body weight reduction, rather it is a tool for body contouring and increasing definition. A few small incisions are made – 3-4mm in length – to allow for the liposuction cannula (tube) to be placed. A solution of local freezing, epinephrine, and saline is first injected. This helps break down the fat cells and reduce bleeding, bruising, and discomfort following surgery. The fat deposits are then suctioned to improve body contour. The front of the abdomen and flank regions are common sites for liposuction in appropriately selected patients. Since liposuction removes fatty deposits alone and no skin, it is important for patients to have normal skin elasticity. Contour improvements depend on skin contraction and tightening after surgery. Although liposuction would remove fat deposits in a patient with decreased skin elasticity, loose skin may result and lead to a suboptimal aesthetic result. Tummy tuck is generally a more appropriate surgery for patients with decreased skin tone. What is the difference between tummy tuck and liposuction in terms of recovery? Following both tummy tuck and liposuction, it is advised to refrain from strenuous activity, exercise, or heavy lifting for 4 weeks. These activity restrictions are intended to lower the risk of bleeding, bruising, or accumulation of fluid or blood within the tissues following surgery. After tummy tuck, abdominal exercises should not be performed for 6 weeks to reduce risk of healing complications at the muscle repair site. An abdominal binder is recommended following tummy tuck surgery for 4-6 weeks. Potential advantages of the abdominal binder were discussed in a recent blog. Following abdominal liposuction, I also recommend a compression garment (usually Spanx®) to be worn for one month to reduce risk of fluid (seroma) accumulation and swelling as well as to improve contour.
