Plastic Surgery Guide To Abdominoplasty

If your tummy isn’t as flat as you would like for it to be, you may have considered having abdominoplasty, or as it’s commonly called, a tummy tuck. While having this surgery can definitely improve the way you look in tight jeans or a swimsuit, don’t expect miracles. Here’s a realistic guide to abdominoplasty.

What a tummy tuck can do

Abdominoplasty can remove excess skin and fat as well as repairing stretched-out muscles resulting from pregnancy, ageing, weight fluctuations or heredity fat deposits. A tummy tuck can give you a smoother, flatter abdomen.

What a tummy tuck can’t do

While tummy tuck surgery can remove some stretch marks, it can’t get rid of all of them.

Abdominoplasty is not the lazy woman’s shortcut to weight loss. For the best results, the patient should already be at a healthy and stable weight before undergoing the surgery. If you’re planning to get pregnant in the future, this surgery should be postponed until afterwards.

Have realistic expectations

If you look at all those flattering photos in ads for plastic surgeons, you’d think that you could emerge from your abdominoplasty with the toned, flawless tummy of a swimsuit model. You need to have realistic expectations and your cosmetic surgeon should talk you through them.

The abdominoplasty procedure

There will be one incision made between the pubic line and the navel that will leave a scar at the bikini line. If you have a large amount of excess skin and fat, another incision will be necessary around the navel in order to reposition it higher on your abdomen. This is also likely to leave a scar.

Abdominoplasty cost

In Australia, a tummy tuck can cost from $6,000-$10,000. None of that will be covered by insurance unless your doctor considers it medically necessary to repair a condition like an abdominal hernia.

Down time after abdominoplasty

The average down time following a tummy tuck (or before you can drive and go back to work or other moderate activity) is 10 to 14 days. Full physical activity like exercise is permitted after six weeks.

Liposuction and other surgery

In some cases, abdominal liposuction can be more successful than a tummy tuck, so speak to your cosmetic surgeon about both options and which, if any, are best for you.

If you are considering getting other cosmetic surgeries like a breast reduction, these can sometimes be performed at the same time as a tummy tuck. Discuss your plan with a plastic surgeon.

Would you consider getting a tummy tuck?

Helen Mirren’s Blunt Advice To Young Women

We didn’t think we could love Dame Helen Mirren more than we do, but now she has given some brilliantly candid advice to her hypothetical daughter – and we want to give her a high five.

In an interview with the UK’s Daily Mail, Mirren, 67, spoke out about female empowerment and the need for women to speak up for themselves.

“If I’d had children and had a girl, the first words I would have taught her would have been ‘f*** off’ because we weren’t brought up ever to say that to anyone, were we?

“And it’s quite valuable to have the courage and the confidence  to say, ‘No, f*** off, leave me  alone, thank you very much.’ You see, I couldn’t help saying ‘Thank you very much,’ I just couldn’t help myself.”

Bravo! It might be blunt, but Mirren’s words are something we should hear more of.

The actress also spoke about being a female in the film industry, describing what it was like when she started out.

“The 60s were not great, the 70s were really crap; the  60s and 70s were pretty ghastly,  I think.

“And into the 80s, as an actress, you would be the only female on set, apart from the continuity person, who was always a woman, and maybe your own personal wardrobe person. Otherwise it was completely male, and a particular kind of testosteroney male that was quite hard to deal with.

“You had to have a sense of humour, put your head down, you were never going to be one of the boys, if you know what I mean.”

What do you think of Helen Mirren’s advice for women?

Low Fat Foods Competition Aanswers

Low fat and fun – what other time in your life is it legal to enjoy such voyuerism? No eating, exercising and sex – still great!!!Definitely low- fat & fun and something to be done with your best mates and a bottle of vino! and even in your pj’s!

Reality TV is plastic cheese slices. Over-packaged, numerous additives to make it healthy, but still slimy and not at all real.

It’s full of fat, avoid it, eventually it will make you look like a big, fat, couch potato (with heaps of cheese & sour cream!!!)

Reality TV is low-fat and fun because it allows you to be “Tempted” without “Big Brother” watching and you still Survive!!

stodgy and to avoid! I have enough problems of my own, with out watching other people lose their dignity by broadcasting theirs on national TV!

Reality TV is absolutely awesome. You get to see all the live crusty drama. Fantastic for all us in the closet voyeurs.

“Deep Fried Castello Cheese – yyyyyyuuuuuummmmmm but I could

feel the arteries hardening!!!!”

grandmother, called German Fried Potatos. All it consists of is a kilo of

potatos, bacon and a kilo of butter.”

“I cooked a romantic candle light dinner for my

husband -seafood in a cream sauce – I put on 3 stone- I think it was the

dessert that did it(I ended up pregnant!)”

“My Hungarian Mum used to make “rokot palacinta”, which is

stacked,filled pancakes.They are sliced like a gateau.Between every single,

flat pancake [and Mum stacked at least 25 of them] she would spread

chocolate cream, walnuts, jam, whipped cream, nutella etc.It was delicious,

tasted fattening and was indeed a billion calories.”

“I ate a bread called Langos in a town called Szentendre in

Hungary, which was basically a lump of dough thrown in a voiling tub of oil

and allowed to cook and absorb it until it expanded to about twice its size.

To make it perfectly calorie laden it was topped with cheese, I couldn’t get

the taste of oil out of my mouth for 2 days.”
