The “Tummy Tuck” also known as Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that flattens the abdomen by removing fat deposits and excess skin while tightening the abdomen’s muscles.
There are two types of “Tummy Tuck” surgeries, the first is the general one that removes a larger amount of fat while the mini or “partial” procedure removes excess skin deposits and fat in the lower abdomen or the “pooch”.
Less is more.
Who should consider a Tummy Tuck?
There are multiple reasons why a Tummy Tuck can be the go-to solution to a flat belly.
- Changes in weight
- Abdominal surgery (such as a C-section)
Tummy tuck can also be coupled with liposuction depending on the patient’s case.
Frequently Asked Questions
In general, abdominoplasty is a very safe procedure especially if the patient is healthy and does not suffer from chronic diseases.
Post-surgery, you will be placed in a compression garment and elastic bands for at least 6 weeks to help reduce swelling, avoid fluid buildup, and support your abdomen.
Your doctor will also assign a list of detailed instructions to abide by during your healing process.
Post Treatment Protocol
To ensure a safe and healthy recovery, you should follow the below:
- Avoid lifting heavy objects for 3 – 4 weeks.
- Avoid physical exercise with stretches.
- Stay hydrated.
- Keep the circulation moving but doing slight movements.
- Take pain medication and apply topical or oral antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor.
- Attend a follow-up session to monitor the healing process.
How long does it take to heal?
The healing process might be painful and ranges between 2 to 6 weeks. You might also feel uncomfortable and sore for at least 2 weeks due to the muscle tightening rather than the incision that will actually be numb for some time. Nevertheless, a mini tummy tuck’s recovery period is usually shorter.
In a week or two, you will be back on your feet with a slimmer abdomen and a firmer abdomen contour.
