The Concept Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty, also referred to as a Tummy Tuck, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the appearance of the abdominal area. It entails the removal of surplus loose skin, fat, and stretch marks, coupled with the tightening and flattening of the abdominal muscles. The primary objective is to address excess skin on the abdomen that remains resistant to exercise, such as skin laxity resulting from pregnancy or significant weight loss.

This procedure works to flatten the abdomen by eliminating excess fat and skin while simultaneously tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall. It’s important to note that abdominoplasty differs from liposuction, although the two procedures may be combined (lipo-abdominoplasty). While not intended as a weight loss method, abdominoplasty can effectively refine the abdominal contour, offering individuals the desired aesthetic outcome following fluctuations in body size.

When considering a Tummy Tuck in Dubai, choosing a qualified and experienced surgeon is paramamount. The ideal surgeon should have extensive know-how and experience in performing this common yet intricate surgery.

Two variations of abdominoplasty procedures are available: Full Tummy Tuck and the partial, also known as “Mini,” Tummy Tuck. Your choice between a full tummy tuck and a mini abdominoplasty in Dubai will depend on your unique aesthetic goals, and our surgeon will provide guidance on the most suitable procedure for you.

What is Lipo-abdominoplasty?

Lipoabdominoplasty represents a sophisticated form of tummy tuck surgery, integrating state-of-the-art liposuction methodologies. This innovative procedure effectively sculpts, flattens, and tones a protruding abdomen by eliminating surplus skin and fat, while simultaneously addressing lax abdominal muscles. This procedure is often recommended for individuals encountering challenges in achieving abdominal flattening despite efforts following pregnancy or weight loss through exercise.

When it comes to lipo abdominoplasty in Dubai, our plastic surgeon provides you with a comprehensive consultation through in-depth discussion about the procedure, possible risks and complications, and expected results. After all your decision to undergo the process should be based on safety and confidence.

Ideal Candidate for Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty is most suitable for individuals in overall good health, devoid of active illnesses or significant pre-existing medical issues.

It is essential to inform your doctor if you intend to become pregnant or embark on a significant weight loss journey before undergoing the procedure. Remember that abdominoplasty is not intended as a remedy for obesity or a replacement for healthy lifestyle habits such as abiding by a proper diet and exercise.

Types of Abdominoplasty in Dubai

Our plastic surgeon in Dubai may mainly suggest the following two types of abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedures to align with your objectives. These may encompass:

Full Abdominoplasty: This involves an incision in the lower abdomen, typically above the pubic region, with the length varying according to the amount of excess skin.

Mini Abdominoplasty: Utilized when there is less surplus skin, it entails a shorter incision between the belly button and lower abdomen, omitting a cut around the belly button.

Other types of abdominoplasty procedures

In some cases, the surgeon may also recommend the following techniques of abdominoplasty:

Circumferential abdominoplasty (high lateral tension abdominoplasty) or extended tummy tuck: Extending to both the front (abdomen) and back area (love handles and hips), this procedure necessitates a lengthier incision encircling the front and back of the body, reshaping the body from all angles.

Fleur-de-lis tummy tuck: Reserved for individuals who have experienced significant weight loss, usually over 100 pounds (45 kilograms), this procedure involves incisions made vertically and horizontally in the abdominal region, creating a “T” shape resembling a fleur-de-lis (lily flower).

Procedure for Abdominoplasty – Tummy Tuck in Dubai

During your procedure, you will be under general anesthesia putting you to sleep ensuring you remain pain-free throughout.

The specifics of an abdominoplasty procedure are contingent upon the type chosen by our surgeon. The general steps typically involve:
1. Creating an incision in the abdominal area, typically situated between the pubic hair and belly button.

2. Pulling down the upper abdominal skin to access the underlying tissues.

3. Removing surplus skin.

4. Reconstructing the belly button if necessary, relocating it to an appropriate position.

5. Placement of drainage tubes, if deemed necessary for fluid removal.

6. Closing the incision site and applying bandages.

Following the surgery, you will remain under observation until the effects of the anesthesia subside and your surgeon confirms you are fit to be discharged home.

Recovery post-surgery

After your Abdominoplasty in Dubai, you can expect a reduction in the appearance of a protruding abdomen and loose skin caused by pregnancy, age, or weight fluctuations. However, it may require as long as three months to observe the ultimate outcome, with the scar showing further enhancement over the course of a year. Although immediate improvements are typically noticeable post-surgery, continued refinement occurs as swelling subsides gradually over several months.

Discomfort is common during the initial week, with a gradual return to normalcy expected within a couple of weeks. Bruising and numbness are typical during this period, and sensations of tightness or pulling around the abdomen may also be experienced during the healing process, ultimately dissipating over time.

Resuming Normal Activities

Following a tummy tuck, activity restrictions are essential during the recovery period. For individuals who engage in high levels of physical activity, strenuous exercises should be postponed for four to six weeks, as directed by your healthcare provider during the healing phase.

On average, a minimum of one week off work is recommended post-surgery. However, individual circumstances may vary, and your provider will offer personalized guidance regarding your return to regular activities.

Do tummy tuck results last forever?

Outcomes of Tummy Tuck in Dubai typically permanent and can endure throughout one’s lifetime. However, maintaining these results necessitates lifestyle adjustments such as adhering to a balanced diet and engaging in regular exercise. Fluctuations in weight can influence  the longevity of the outcome, underscoring the importance of ongoing health management under the guidance of your healthcare provider.

FAQs


The primary distinction among these procedures lies in their scope. A mini tummy tuck focuses solely on the lower abdominal area, offering a more limited intervention. In contrast, a standard tummy tuck addresses a broader region, spanning from the chest to the pubic area. Meanwhile, an extended tummy tuck extends the intervention to include the abdomen, flanks, and lower back. Although the incision length remains consistent for mini and standard tummy tucks in Dubai, it is longer for the extended version.

Indeed, VASER liposuction is frequently utilized alongside lipo-abdominoplasty. This cutting-edge liposuction technique employs ultrasound energy to break down fat cells, facilitating their removal. VASER liposuction can effectively target fat deposits in various areas, including the abdomen and flanks. Whether performed before or after lipo-abdominoplasty in Dubai, VASER liposuction aids in sculpting the body to achieve desired outcomes.

Post-lipo-abdominoplasty, gentle massage of the treated area is crucial. This aids in reducing swelling and fostering the healing process. Utilizing oils or creams, massage should be administered in a circular motion. Particularly beneficial is manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) massage, tailored to alleviate swelling and optimize the lymphatic system. It is advisable to seek MLD massage from a qualified therapist.

Long-term outcomes vary among individuals, typically yielding a flatter, more sculpted abdomen with enhanced contours. Sustained results are contingent upon maintaining a healthy lifestyle. However, it is important to acknowledge that outcomes may not be permanent, necessitating potential future procedures.

I am an Italian woman and I would like to share my amazing experience with Dr. Faisal. When I decided to have my breast augmentation I visited several doctors, and I must say that every time I was more and more confused because I always received different advice and I felt a little lost. However, I decided to continue searching and found Dr. Faisal's profile on google, read some of his reviews and contacted him for a consultation. For the first time I really felt listened to, where I wasn't a "30 min visit" to sell the operation, but it was me as a person. Dr. Faisal asked me many questions to make me feel at ease and understand what my goals were (there was no time, he was just listening to me). I had finally left the studio happy, and sure he was the right surgeon. I want to clarify that I am a super sporty girl (I do running, CrossFit, kickboxing, tennis hiking), and also during the appointment, for me the most important aspect was to obtain a natural effect and be able to continue to do my sports activities as before. So I took a couple of weeks where every time I needed clarification he asked me to stop by the studio to explain me everything in detail! After my thousand dramas I decided the date of the operation :) it was a Friday. The day after I went out for a walk (Dr. please don't read, that I promised you I would be rested). On Monday I was already back to work and on Wednesday I could already drive. As for sport, I followed everything the Dr. advised me and after about 3 weeks I was back to running a bit. After about 5 weeks I was back to doing some weights. Now after 3 months I'm back to doing all my sports. I was already super happy with the result after the operation, now is absolutely incredible. I hope my experience can help other people because in addition to professionalism, he is a doctor who truly listens and cares about the person's happiness and I can't recommend him enough.

I highly recommend Dr Faisal to anyone thinking of undergoing surgery. I had a few consultations with other Drs but instantly i had a really good feeling when discussing everything with Dr Faisal. He really took the time to listen and understand exactly what I wanted to achieve. He reassured all the way through the process and made me feel so at ease. I had done extensive research (15 years) before I decided to do the surgery of Breast Augmentation. Dubai can be a minefield trying to find the right surgeon but he came highly recommended from many people and I now know why. I’m so happy with my results.

I had the best experience with Dr.Faisal for my 360 lypo surgery. Starting from my very first consultation in which he was very welcoming and open to listening to what I was looking to achieve. He really took my case with all care and professionalism, and I couldn’t be happier with what we achieved. Beyond his professional capabilities, his after care and support post operation has been second to none. I highly recommend Dr.Faisal to anyone who is looking to do any cosmetic work- minor or major in Dubai, there is no need to travel abroad looking for better doctors or prices ..etc. Dr.Faisal’s procedure and care have been the utmost best in class.

I am 27 yrs old and I had a desire of getting larger and proportionate breasts since my younger age. When I researched surgeons and was looking through many, many galleries of results, I wasn’t impressed by almost any of the doctor's work. After a long search, I came across the website of Dr. Faisal Salim, read his reviews, and looked at his results. I was so happy and just knew i had to do a consultation with him! I spoke with his clinic first on the phone and she gave me so much information even before booking a consultation with a doctor. From the first tele conversation, I was so impressed, and comfortable and felt that they cared about me as a patient. I went to my consultation where he explained every part of the procedure and answered all my questions. As we have a family history of breast cancer, Dr Faisal referred me to do an ultrasound mammogram, along with a health screening and tests to check i was a proper candidate for surgery. When I was cleared I had my surgery in October 2021, and have had many checkups with Dr. Faisal since he is very involved and wanting to make sure i have the best results. He and his team are better than I could have imagined. I have had a lot of friends, and even strangers ask me to know my doctor's name because they are wondering about my result. I recommend him to every female out there wanting the Best Results!!!

I had been thinking about getting a tummy tuck for years but I was so afraid of doing it. I had been searching for various surgeons because I knew it is an extensive surgery. But when I met Dr. Faisal Salim, I just knew he was the one I was searching for. After my first consultation with him, I got a confidence of doing tummy tuck surgery. It has been 6 months since my procedure and the result is amazing. He and his staff were welcoming, friendly, attentive and answered to all my questions in a positive way. I had a wonderful experience at his clinic, and his staffs were more caring. Thank you for your entire support and caring you had given me during my days in your clinic
