Abdominoplasty, The abdominal area is in the centre of the human body between the chest and the pelvis. It contains all the digestive organs such as stomach, liver, small and large intestines, pancreas and gallbladder.
All these organs are linked to each other flaccidly by tissues. They are able to expand and slide against each other. Many blood veins pass by the tummy and kidneys and spleen are also here.
Perforating branches of the inferior and superior epigastric arteries and vessels procure the fat and blood supply. There are anchoring fascial areas, like the ASIS and umbilicus which ensure structural support for the abdominal skin.
Although the abdominal skin is usually tight, several factors may cause the skin to loosen, such as:
- overweight in the abdominal area,
- skin prolapse that after rapid weight loss,
- post-pregnancy weight loss.
People tend to move less in the current working conditions of society. Many of us are doing our jobs sitting all day long. Not only the lack of physical activity but also the malnutrition cause overweight.
We also have to mention an important point: weight gain in pregnancy. Needless to say that losing weight is the only option to get rid of the fat, but there can occur another problem which is skin prolapse.
Skin prolapse usually appears after rapid weight loss and causes aesthetically poor appearance. It is a situation that upsets people who have treated their overweight problems and annoys them with a new problem.
As with weight loss, tummy cannot adapt to rapid changes and cracked skin problem can show up. Abdominoplasty is the most efficient treatment to get rid of the saggy skin problem in the short term.
