rbrcky saidIve been think about getting a tummy Tuck. Im 5'7" 185 LBS. I have been dieting, exercising ever since I was 16 but havent been able to get rid of that extra fat on my stomach. I would do cardio pretty much every day then I would only do it 3 days a week for 30 minutes. Anyways at this point Ive gained weight that I lost over a few years ago. Has any one had a Tummy tuck? Or other Plastic Surgery done to them?
This is seemingly commonplace with Women who have 'multiple pregnancies'.
The area on the Tummy that gets typically altered is called your "Abdominal Wall" made of a few layers comprising whats called "Adipose Tissue" [ your body's own (Fat) pretty much. ] and different amounts of skin.
Its typically not as common for men to get or develop whats refereed to as a "Excess Pannus" ... (basically, your lower Abdomen or the Adonis/Apollo's Belt)...However, in events where Men have lost an inordinate and unruly amount of weight, what is "surgically done" medically speaking is around the same format, pretty much; as what's generally needed after multiple pregnancies with women.
Now, under a cosmetic Lens':
Primarily for an enhancement to physical aesthetics and pulchritude ideals, the procedure is called a ( "Abdominoplasty" ), in which a 'hip to hip in incision is surgically made on the individual, while intermittently contouring the shape of the person's own physio- anatomy at the same time. The surgeon does this by way of removing excess skin and fat deposits while simultaneously tightening not only your abdominal muscles but your excess skin as well, as they have been loosened and stretched out of sync; by either pregnancy or substantial weight gain. All 'corrections' would be otherwise not eradicable on the person's own free accord. The results on this particular cosmetic procedure varies person-to-person, of course. In all, it is one of the most mundane procedures to get done under the umbrella of plastic surgery to begin with, sorta parallel to breast augmentation.
Now, under a medical Lens:
Primarily for the overall health and betterment of a specific individual by; ( reducing the potential impact of acute infection, or unforeseen hygienic complications, in the aftermath of massive weight-loss ), when a person generally loses over 100+ pounds. In most cases, when a person has lost over 100 or more pounds; it is kinda impossible on all accounts to tighten the skin that comprises within your abdominal wall, by your own measures naturally, ( most of the fat is lost and gone but the skin that used to support that given fat remains,only tightening back / going so far then reaching a ceiling point, and it still sags down a bit, and most of the time it can only be corrected by way of surgery. )Contingent upon the amount of time or duration a individual has been significantly overweight and or obese, will play a huge factor in whether or not their body will allow the skin that has been stretched out for so long to rescind to a relatively normal yet aesthetically pleasing shape and comfortable fit germane to the person in question. this particular medical procedure is called a,
( " Panniculectomy " ) Much like getting an Abdominoplasty done, the Panniculectomy's primary difference is that it is used in a medical sense only, not cosmetic. One of the defining differences alone in this surgical swing of things is that while abdominoplasty's tightened up the muscles/skin and contour the person's tummy, the Panniculectomy procedure only hones in surgically/medically, taking out skin along with "some" adipose tissue, never surgically touching the areas and layers beneath the Apollo's Belt; in which to tighten up the muscles that have been loosened; for a long extended period of time. So between the two; they are very distinctively different.
Contingent upon how much weight you have lost and have kept off for yourself man, I would totally consult a plastic or reconstructive surgeon about this and the underlying differences of what I have stipulated above. Because in this venue, whether it's reconstructive or plastic surgery; a " one-size-fits-all" never applies to any thing contrary to popular creed. Ideally, have whatever Doctor office you choose give you some pertinent Brochures regarding cosmetic and medical procedures.
I.e - ( '.Abdominoplasty's and Panniculectomy's )
It ought to go without saying; this is just solely advise and insight. I'm not a Reconstructive or Plastic Surgeon, nor would I ever want to be - with all due respect.
My personal knowledge base, and expertise is from a long line of Morbidly Obese Italian Family tree from 'Naples', Italy by which 'BIG Living' has been a custom/normal way of life for several decades over
