ABOUT MUMMY TUCK OR C-TUCK

 

This is a surgical procedure done during a cesarean section where the excess, loose and over-hanging skin & fat and the stretch marks in that area are removed. This is a common gynaeco - cosmetic procedure abroad, and the results are very rewarding.

THE TECHNIQUE
The 'Mummy Tuck' is a procdure requiring a multidisciplinary approach - involving your obstetrician and a plastic surgeon. It is done during a C-Section after the baby delivery, when the layers of the abdomen are being closed. A slightly longer incision is taken in the bikini line above the public area, so the scar can be concealed under your innerwear. The excess overhanging skin, subcut fat and stretch marks on it are removed. Finally, skin sutures are taken and a bandage is applied.

Anaesthesia is the same as that required for the C-Section. The length of the surgery increases by about 30 minutes. Hospitalisation and recovery is the same as that for the cesarian section and there is no specific additional care required.

IS THIS A PERMANENT PROCEDURE?
Yes! The excess sagging skin with its sttetchmarks and subcutaneous fat are gone for good. If you gain weight after the procedure its generalized and the rate of putting on weight is very slow.

WHAT DOES A "MUMMY TUCK" NOT DO?
Unlike a traditional abdominoplasty (or Tummy Tuck), a Mummy Tuck does not eliminate flaccidity or fat above the navel and the sides. It does not tighten the abdominal muscles and a liposuction cannot be combined with it. The navel is not repositioned in a Mummy Tuck.
