Obesity is a leading cause of death among young adults and adults, not only in India but also across the globe. Obesity can lead a person to suffer from other associated chronic health disorders such as Diabetes or high blood sugar problems, Hypertension or high blood pressure problems, joint problems and many others. In order to treat this problem, both lifestyle modification as well as surgical methods are recommended by medical practitioners.
There are many procedures for weight loss surgeries that are recommended by doctors depending upon the medical requirement of the patient. At times, a patient may not need any surgical intervention and can be treated through cosmetic methods. One such cosmetic way of weight loss treatment is Tummy Tuck. Tummy tuck or Abdominoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that has been designed to flatten the abdomen by removing the excess amount of skin and fat and in order to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. Tummy tuck method of weight loss treatment is mostly preferred by women after their child birth when they find their skin, muscles and body fat in the abdominal area sagging. Patients preferring tummy tuck are found to check other non-surgical methods such as indulging in regular exercise programmes, or doing sit ups to flatten the abdominal area properly. With tummy tuck, this region of the body can be turned into a proper shape that can further be maintained with the help of proper dieting and regular exercising in a dedicated fashion.
Tummy tuck can help in reducing the appearance of a protruding tummy drastically. This treatment procedure involves the surgeon to make a slit across the hipbone above the pubic area in order to divide the skin from the abdominal wall. This will help in tightening the skin and the muscles by pulling them closer and stitching them into the area along the bikini line. Patients can opt for different portions of tucking depending on their requirements.
Another weight loss treatment that is conducted cosmetically is liposuction. This type of cosmetic surgery focuses on getting rid of the stubborn fatty deposits or the small bulges that appear on the body and distorts the body shape. Liposuction is mostly seen to be conducted in areas like the hips, the thighs, the face, the buttocks and the abdomen.
Liposuction should not be conducted without proper consultation with a surgeon. The treating surgeon should understand the patients' body type, skin type, evaluate which procedure is best suited for the patient, how far will it be effective on the patient and if the patient will be able to bear the cost of the surgery and post-surgery costs. The surgeon inserts a small stainless steel instrument known as cannula through small insertions into the fatty areas in between the skin and muscle and remove the excess fat with the use of a suction pump. The end result is a smoother and improved body contour. This type of cosmetic surgery is mostly an outpatient procedure and the recovery time is also quick. The patient can return to his or her normal life within two weeks.
