Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that helps flatten the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin. It also tightens the muscle. The best candidates for an abdominoplasty are non-smokers who are in good physical condition and at a stable weight. They will also have pockets of fat or loose skin that has not responded well to diet and exercise.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

This procedure can help people with sagging or loose skin after a major weight loss or pregnancy to reconstruct the abdominal muscles and the midsection area. This is the best way to achieve a tight skin and reshaped figure that cannot be done otherwise with diet and exercise.

Tummy Tuck can improve self-esteem, as well as eliminate the discomfort of excess skin in the stomach area. Clothes could fit well again and the social experiences change for the good of every happy client.

Post-operation recovery terms

Most customer after the Tummy Tuck operation do have a lot of dressings on. We put compression garments, or an abdominal binder over the area of the Tummy Tuck, and the idea is really to give a little bit more support and push things into place so that they can heal well together.

During the operation, doctors use drains, and with those little tubes that come out of the skin, clients get rid of all extra fluid that the body sometimes accumulates in those areas. Drains will usually stay for about two weeks or so; it depends on the client. Most of the bruising and swelling are gone by about two weeks, so the majority of customers who work at a desk job can go back to work right around the two-week mark. Some go back earlier, and some come back later, but that’s a pretty good time frame to keep in mind.

The six-week mark is often the best point for clients to come back to any sort of physical activity or going back to the gym, because that’s when most people are feeling better with less soreness or discomfort in their muscles.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between a standard Tummy Tuck and an extended Tummy Tuck?

A standard Tummy Tuck involves an incision along the bikini line that extends hip to hip and around the belly button. Extended Tummy Tuck is like the standard Tummy Tuck but the incision extends from the hips to the back. The Extended Tummy Tuck also helps tighten the waistline.

How long is the recovery period after a tummy tuck surgery?

The recovery period after a tummy tuck surgery typically lasts around 4 to 6 weeks. However, it’s important to note that full healing and final results may take several months.

Can I have children after a tummy tuck?

Yes, you can still have children after a tummy tuck. However, it’s generally recommended to complete your family planning before undergoing the procedure, as future pregnancies can affect the results of the surgery.

Will I have the same belly button after a TT or will I get a new one?

In most of our patients, doctors try to keep them with their original belly button. The only difference is when doctors pull the skin down after taking out the skin below, they will make a new incision for the belly button to poke out of, so patients will keep their own belly button. It is just a new window for it to come out of and be exposed to the outside world again.
