Tandon Clinic at Rohini is famous for all types of plastic & cosmetic surgery in Delhi including liposuction in Delhi.
Patients can have a bulging tummy because of various reasons-
- Excess fat in fat compartment between the skin and the muscle
- Lax abdominal muscles
- Excess fat inside the tummy around the intestines and omentum
- Abdominal wall hernia/ divarication of rectus muscles
- Excessive lordosis [ forward curvature] of lumbar spine
The correct diagnosis is important to plan the right surgery and achieve a satisfactory result in tummy contouring operations.
Dr. Ashok Tandon, famous plastic surgeon for liposuction in Rohini gives proper details about the procedure.
Liposuction will only correct the fat compartment between skin and muscle. It will have no effect on fat inside the tummy. If that is the major component of the problem, then counseling with a dietician and physician is required to mobilize this fat. Also remember this fat is ‘bad’ for it is an indicator of deep-seated metabolic disorder in the body which is responsible for many diseases like diabetes, hypertension and fatty liver etc.A tummy tuck will remove the extra skin and fat and lead to a nice redraping of abdominal skin. The removal of abdominal stretch marks will be a bonus- a very common problem in females after pregnancy. Any hernia or separation of rectus muscles [divarication] can also be addressed at the same time.
To illustrate this point, this patient Mrs. M. had a bulging tummy which was distressing her. She had no significant extra fat and her BMI was within normal limits. Her bulge was attributable to three things –
Lumber lordosisExcess fat in tummy areaDivarication of rectus muscles.
Divarication was corrected with correct suturing of muscles. The other components were not corrected. Liposuction was not done for safety reasons as doing central liposuction in areas lifted up during abdominoplasty can lead to vascular compromise, it can, however, be done as a small second stage after about three months. Lumber lordsis is a postural thing and cannot be corrected.
Initial results look promising in early pictures and will improve as the scars settle and swelling decreases
