In consequence of pregnancy and excessive weight gain, there will be a considerable increase in the amount of the skin and subcutaneous adipose tissues as well as slackness in the abdominal muscles and a decrease in the skin elasticity. Despite the considerable decreases in the amount of these tissues after weight loss or pregnancy, the abdominal muscles cannot adequately shape the abdominal skin and subcutaneous adipose tissue. The skin in this region is known to not only get enlarge but also get looser due to hormonal irregularities during pregnancy. The elastic fibers of the expanded skin get separated from each other, and mostly create rebarbative deep cracks particularly in the area between the belly button and the mons-pubis region. Thus, a deformation occurs in the abdominal area due fat accumulation, sagging skin, and slack muscles, which cannot be corrected with exercise or diet.
On the other hand, when the individual reaches middle age, fat accumulation begins in the abdomen and waist; cracks develop in the skin; the shape of the belly button gets impaired; and a bagel surrounding the whole abdomen and waist appear especially when sitting. Our biggest concern begins to be about concealing such appearances when selecting clothing. Excess fat that spills over the top of the pants and the paunch that rolls over the belt are the appearances that make the both genders uncomfortable. Once the abdominal area gets impaired, it is hard to recover it.
Any surgical scars from previous surgeries (appendectomy, a c-section delivery, hernia surgery etc.) in the lower abdominal area can also be eliminated during the tummy tuck procedure. A tight and flatly elliptical belly, shadow shows created by the abdominal muscles, an attractive belly button, and an obvious waist concavity constitute an appearance dreamed by all women. Not only women but also men are in pursuit of a tight abdomen as well as abdominal muscles in the shape called ‘the six-pack’. A well-shaped abdomen is reminiscent of both youth, and an active and sporty personality. Interventions made in the abdominal area for aesthetic purposes are among the most demanded surgical procedures for especially post-middle-aged women. There are varieties of surgical solution options intended for problems arising in this area.
