WHAT IS A TUMMY TUCK?




A Tummy Tuck is a cosmetic surgery that aims to improve the shape and appearance of the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying muscles. It is also known as Abdominoplasty.

ABOUT THE TUMMY TUCK PROCEDURE



A Tummy Tuck procedure usually takes about two to five hours and is performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes a horizontal incision between the pubic hairline and the belly button and lifts the skin and fat from the abdominal wall. The surgeon then tightens the abdominal muscles with stitches and removes any excess skin and fat. The remaining skin is pulled down and stitched together, creating a firmer and flatter abdomen. The surgeon may also reposition the belly button to match the new contour. The patient may have drainage tubes inserted under the skin to remove any fluid or blood.

TUMMY TUCK RECOVERY



The recovery time for a Tummy Tuck varies depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Generally, the patient can expect to have some pain, swelling, bruising, and numbness for the first few weeks. The patient should avoid any strenuous activity and follow the surgeon’s instructions for wound care and medication. The patient should also wear a compression garment or binder to support the abdomen and reduce swelling. The drainage tubes are usually removed within a week, and the stitches are removed after two weeks.

The patient may return to work after two to four weeks, depending on the nature of the job. The final results of the procedure may take up to a year to appear, as the swelling subsides and the scars fade.

ARE YOU THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR A TUMMY TUCK?



A Tummy Tuck is suitable for people who have excess skin and fat in the lower abdomen that does not respond to diet or exercise. The patient should also be in good health, have realistic expectations, and be at a stable weight. A tummy tuck is not recommended for people who plan to lose a significant amount of weight, might consider pregnancy in the future, have chronic conditions that affect healing or are allergic to anesthesia.
