Tummy Tuck Surgery In Mumbai

Tummy tuck surgery overview

While we are happy to offer noninvasive alternatives to liposuction (cool sculpting is an excellent option), we have been consistently disappointed by noninvasive techniques for tightening the skin. Therefore, abdominoplasty is currently the only effective option for improving the appearance of significantly loose skin in the abdominal area. Procedures that use the word “tuck” are exactly that. Meaning, in order to “tuck” the skin, the excess skin must be removed. As a result of “tucking” the skin, abdominoplasties have a scar in the lower abdomen, which can generally be placed within the area that would be covered by a bathing suit or underwear.

After weight loss from childbirth or losing lots of fats from exercise and diet, your skin starts getting saggy and loose, in such cases tummy tuck procedure might come as a savior. The procedure is also termed as abdominoplasty. The good part is you can get your flat belly by undergoing the procedure. It is time to feel confident again with tummy tuck procedure.

Motherhood is a best gift from the god. However, it leaves an unwanted telltale sign, residual baby bump making one always looking pregnant, stretchmarks. No amount of exercise and diet gives you your figure back. Recent addition of latest technology of liposuction is called lipoabdominoplasty which is safer way to get back in to shape

Type/Technique Of Tummy tuck

  • Standard/ traditional tummy tuck/ lipoabdominoplasty/ Brazilian tummy tuck
  • Mini tummy tuck
  • Extended tummy tuck
  • Circumferential tummy tuck, belt platy, lower body lift
  • Torsoplasty

Type-1: Standard tummy tuck/ full tummy tuck / traditional tummy tuck/ lipoabdominoplasty/ Brazilian tummy tuck

An abdominoplasty has two components: one is the skin and fat that occurs beneath the skin and above the muscles of the abdominal wall. We refer to this fat as “pinch able fat,” as opposed to the fat that occurs beneath the abdominal muscles. That fat, also referred to as visceral fat, lies within the abdomen and is therefore not “pinch able.” Pinch able fat is removed with liposuction.

When a patient has abdominal muscle weakness, or abdominal wall laxity, they may be a candidate for abdominal muscle tightening during the abdominoplasty procedure.

As part of normal anatomy, there is a fine line (linea alba) between the two vertical rectus muscles in the front of the abdomen. These are the muscles that create a six-pack when well developed. As one of the natural changes that occur during pregnancy or major weight gain, the abdominal wall stretches. In some women, the linea alba between the two muscles stretches and does not return to normal. This is called a diastasis recti.

To repair diastasis recti during an abdominoplasty, the muscle edges are sutured together, thereby tucking in the loose abdominal wall. Sutures can also be placed at other portions of the abdominal wall to create further tightening and shaping of the muscle.

While tightening the abdominal muscles during an abdominoplasty, it can provide substantial improvement for some of our patients, this can lead to some abdominal soreness during recovery

Type-2: Mini tummy tuck

Skin of the abdomen can be divided into two parts. Above umbilicus and below umbilicus. When only skin below the umbilicus is extra, there would be no need for scar around the umbilicus. The lower abdominal skin can be removed through shorter scar. There may or may not be need for muscle tightening depending on muscle tone. A young, post pregnancy woman is a typical case for mini tummy tuck. While doing mini tummy tuck, there is a need to plicate muscle up to chest bone. That can be done with the help of endoscope, which is called endoscopic tummy tuck or endoscopic assisted tummy tuck.

When there is high umbilicus, very little skin is extra above umbilicus, Floating Umbilicus technique can be applied without umbilical surrounding scar. Umbilicus is detached from the underlying muscle and fixed at new location.

G out type-3: Dermolipectomy

When only skin is loose and muscle tone is very good and rectii are attached to each other in the mid-line, there is no need to plicate muscle. Only skin excision is done which is called dermolipectomy or skin only abdominoplasty. As muscle are not tightened, recovery is very fast. So many men just require dermolipectomy.

Type-4: Extended tummy tuck

When there is extra skin on lateral abdomen or large amount of fat on laterally, incision of the tummy tuck has to extend beyond hip to tighten the abdominal skin, which is called extended tummy tuck. It also lift the lateral thigh skin.

Type-5: Circumferential tummy tuck, belt plasty, lower body lift

After massive weight loss or large amount of fat liposuction, there is evident extra skin on back side also. To remove this extra skin, incision is made till back and meet each other in the mid line, which is called circumferential tummy tuck, or belt lipectomy. It also tighten the lateral thigh skin and lift the butt.

Type-6: Torsoplasty

When lipoabdominoplasty is combined with back liposuction, it is called torsoplasty. It gives hourglass shape

Type-7: fleur de lis tummy tuck

When skin is too much in excess, the fleur de lis name is derived from this type of incision. After removing fat and tightening of muscle, skin is excised in three petal shape. One reaches up to breast bone and two going lateral around hip bone. Skin is pulled down and centrally. The resultant incision is like inverted “T” shape.

How tummy tuck procedure is executed?

Assessing the problematic area

Your abdomen is assessed for muscle weakness and any hernia, amount of extra fat and its location. Quality and amount of extra skin is assessed. Surrounding area like mons pubis, hip, butt, thigh, bra roll on back are also assessed. Surgeon makes a comprehensive tummy tuck surgery plan for you and discuss in detail.

Preoperative fitness assessment

Once the tailor-made surgery plan is prepared, preoperative preparation starts. General body checkup for fitness is done.


On the day of surgery, again lipoabdominoplasty plan is discussed again. Meticulous marking is done for liposuction area, skin incision, muscle tightening. The low placement of the suture line is done.


Usually done under general anesthesia


Surgery begins with tumescent infiltration and Vaser Liposuction of somatic fat/ or localized fat deposits is done in case of torsoplasty, first back liposuction is done.


Skin is pulled up and low incision under bikini line is taken. Length depends on the amount of extra skin to be tightened. The skin flap is elevated from the underlying muscle and umbilicus is left attached to muscle. As much as skin is excised to give good abdominal shape.

Muscle tightening

Separated rectus muscle is placed in mid line from below chest bone to pubic bone. If needed lateral plication of the muscle is done to further tighten muscle to give hourglass shape of tummy

Transposition of umbilicus

Umbilicus is fixed to underlying muscle at aesthetically appropriate location. A hole is created in skin flap at same location. The umbilicus is fixed to skin flap in such a manner that suture line goes deep in invisible position.
If umbilicus is high positioned and skin above the umbilicus is not much extra, floating umbilicus technique can be used to avoid circumpolar scar.

Mons pubis lift: Vulva and external genitalia hang due to the laxity of skin post pregnancy and post weight loss. Mons is pulled up and fixed at higher level.

Drainless abdominoplasty

Before closure, drain is used and fixed depending on surgical extent to drain out fluid and broken fat. When drain is not used, it is called drainless abdominoplasty. Tissue of the abdominal wall are sutured with quilting suture so tissue stitch to each other faster. However, drainless technique takes longer time and so anesthesia time.
Skin closure:

Skin sutured is done in layers with buried suture. Care is taken that suture line remains below the bikini line. One should be able to wear swimsuit in comfortable way.

Finishing liposuction

Minor asymmetry is corrected and sculpting of the abdomen is done. Extra fluid is aspirated.

After surgery

Depending on the extent of surgery, you will be discharged on the same day or next day. You will be encouraged to walk on the same day.

Tummy tuck recovery down time

All of Dr. Doshi’s full abdominoplasty patients are required to stay overnight in Goregaon Mumbai, under the supervision of the hospital facility, both for patient’s safety as well as comfort. The nurse ensures that the patient is resting in the propped up position. The nurse monitors blood pressure, as well as discomfort and can medicate accordingly, as needed. The nurse also monitors drainage (drains are almost always used) and instructs the patient on dressing and drain care for the days following their abdominoplasty in Mumbai, India.

Prior to the discharge on the morning after surgery at cosmetic surgery center, you will be examined by Dr Milan Doshi and wound healing will be assessed, you will be guided to take care of dressing by yourself. Or one can drop in for the dressing. Typically, between days 5 and 7 following surgery, drainage is low enough that the patient can come into the cosmetic surgery center, Mumbai and have her or his drains removed.

One start walking in the evening only. The minimum downtime after abdominoplasty surgery is about 7 days. One can generally expect drains to be removed after 4 to 6 days. One may return to work that does not require physical activity after 10 days of surgery. However, it must be emphasized that even at 10 days after an abdominoplasty, activity must be kept at a minimum in order to ensure proper healing and to avoid complications.

A patient coming from another city or country should plan to arrive in Mumbai India at least 1 full day (preferably 2) prior to surgery and to stay in Mumbai for a minimum of 10 days post operatively. One can return to work after about two weeks of the surgery. However, try to avoid strenuous exercise for at least 1 to 2 months or seek the advice of the doctor.

Lipoabdominoplasty results

The results will be visible immediately. After the surgery you will start feeling slimmer and notice that your tummy has become more contoured. However, you will also be experiencing some swelling post-surgery, which will resolve over time, abdomen shape improvement goes on for 6 to 8 months.

Liposuction is a very safe surgery. However, all forms of surgery come with certain risks and complications. At Allure Medspa, expertise of Dr. Doshi, modern technology for surgery, anesthesia, sterilization, precise protocol based management and caring team make liposuction a safe and life time experience.

Tummy tuck scar

The scar from a full abdominoplasty must, by necessity, be a long scar in order to remove the large area of skin. Celebrity cosmetic surgeon Dr. Doshi frequently likens this scar to a hem on clothing; the hem has to cover the length of the area to be reduced. In fact, Dr. Doshi has seen some extremely unfavorable results when other, less experienced surgeons have tried to achieve the results of a full tummy tuck with a short scar.

The amount of pulling in and crimping of the tissues, and/or excess of skin on the sides (dog ears), can be very disturbing. It is important to differentiate between a long scar and a wide scar. In the vast majority of cases, Dr. Doshi’s abdominoplasty scars are narrow and fine because of the techniques employed in closure and the fact that tension in the closure is kept to an absolute minimum.

How much does a tummy tuck cost?

A surgeon’s fee for tummy tuck surgery will be based on his or her experience and expertise to deliver consistently good results, the type of procedure and technology used and the geographic location and type of surgical facility.
Tummy tuck costs may include:

• Anesthesia fees
• Hospital or surgical facility costs
• Medical tests
• Post-surgery garments
• Prescriptions for medication
• Surgeon’s fee

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for a tummy tuck, remember that the surgeon’s experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of tummy tuck surgery.

Most health insurance plans do not cover tummy tuck surgery or its complications, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.

Lipoabdominoplasty limitations

Lipoabdominoplasty removes pinch able fat but not the visceral fat which is deep to abdominal muscle. So pot belly cannot be improved. Visceral fat reduces only with healthy life style.
