With ongoing research dedicated to finding better and innovative procedures women have even more choices when it comes to getting their tummies tucked with abdominoplasty
The Floating Abdominoplasty or FAB Procedure
Using a small incision in the lower abdomen, this new tummy tuck surgery technique allows the tummy to be tightened and shaped with optimal results. Also referred to as an extended mini abdominoplasty, this procedure is an excellent option without the telltale signs as there is no incision around the belly button. Excess skin is removed through the incision; the belly button is temporarily detached and ‘floats’ above the muscles. This allows the muscles to become tightened and reshaped from sternum to pubic area, that is, along the entire length of the abdomen, as opposed to a typical mini tummy tuck where the muscles are only tightened below the belly button. The skin on the abdomen is then made smooth and firm, and the belly button is reattached from the inside with the option of moving it down one or two cm if necessary. To sculpt to an even greater degree, liposuction is performed, resulting in beautiful tight abs with a scar that is minimal and discreet.
Anyone with significant stretching and weakness of their abdominal muscles after one or more pregnancies is a good candidate. If there is a moderate amount of excess skin and fat, but with little to no stretch marks, the FAB procedure is a great option. This new technique would remove the extra skin and fat through an incision slightly longer than that of a C-section.
As with most cosmetic enhancements there is a certain amount of recovery time. After undergoing an FAB procedure the patient should expect bruising for approximately seven days, and swelling that could last up to two to four weeks depending on how much liposuction was performed. Regular activities can generally be resumed within a week to ten days. Avoid heavy lifting and physical workouts, including crunches and other abdominal exercises, for about six weeks. It is in the best interest of the patient to be off work for two or three weeks to ensure maximum and safe recovery.
The FAB procedure is an excellent choice for those who have remained in adequate shape but struggle with their tummies and want to take the extra step towards enhancing their physical beauty. Call (416) 256-5614 to find out more about abdominoplasty surgery and the tummy tuck cost in Canada.
