Different Types of Tummy tuck in Gurgaon
There are different types of abdominoplasty, and the duration of the abdominoplasty depends on its type. The best plastic surgeon can guide you on which tummy tuck procedure suits you better.
Abdominoplasty is an inpatient procedure and is combined with liposuction. Depending on the locations and condition of the tummy,
Full or Complete abdominoplasty
This type of abdominoplasty is when the entire tummy requires correction. An incision is made at the bikini line to remove excess skin and muscle and tone the region as desired. Another incision around the naval allows excess tissue to clear around the navel region. Drain tubes may be placed under the skin at the incisions, which will be removed in 1-2 days post-surgery. The incisions after surgery are sutured and dressed well. The Final scar is hidden under the bikini line.
Partial or Mini abdominoplasty
Mini abdominoplasty involves a shorter incision near the bikini line and is considered when less skin needs to be removed. The incision around the navel is not done in this procedure. After the procedure, the incisions are stitched and dressed. The mini-abdominoplasty takes nearly one to two hours. Depending on the condition, the surgeon may not place the drain pipe.
Extended or High-lateral Tension abdominoplasty
This type of tummy tuck surgery involves skin and muscle toning of the sides and back area of the abdomen. This procedure allows skin and fat removal from the hip, back, and thighs while reshaping the tummy.
Possible Risks & Complications
After abdominoplasty, one needs to follow the surgeon’s instructions, take care of the bandage, change the dressing regularly, and avoid strenuous activities- bending and running for at least four to six weeks. However, one can resume daily activities and routine after one week of enough rest.
Though abdominoplasty is an effective procedure that gives a flattened abdomen, one may experience pain and swelling post-surgery. One may also observe numbness and bruising at the surgery site. Some of the possible risks and complications of abdominoplasty include:

Bleeding or hematoma,
Fluid accumulation or Seroma,
Infection at the surgical site,

Improper wound healing or wound separation.
