Hello, My name is Adrian Richards,
I am a Plastic surgeon and the clinical director of aurora Clinics. In this short video I am going to be talking about Tummy Tucks and really an overview of tummy tucks, discussing mini tummy tucks, full tummy tucks and the muscle. So it is an overview video and for more detail about tummy tucks look for our more in depth videos on particular topics. So the first thing is what is a tummy tuck? well a tummy tuck is an operation which reduces the skin of the lower tummy and also tightens the muscles of the tummy. Typically people thinking about having a tummy tuck have either lost a significant amount of weight or have had children and particularly pregnancy stretched both the skin of the tummy and separates the muscles, so it is very common following pregnancy particularly with larger babies or twins have significant changes to your tummy muscles and skin and it is often very difficult even with exercise to get back to the state before surgery. So tummy tuck procedure is also called abdominoplasty and it is basically a procedure on the tummy aimed at reducing and tightening skin possibly refashioning scars on the lower part of the tummy and tightening and repairing the muscles. There are different types of tummy tucks and in subsequent videos in this series I am going to be talking about mini tummy tucks full tummy tucks repair of the muscle options for the tummy button and the recovery period following tummy tuck surgery.
