Tummy Tuck Surgery

A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the abdomen. During the tummy tuck procedure, also known as abdominoplasty, excess skin and fat are removed from the abdomen. The connective tissue (fascia) in the abdomen is usually also tightened with sutures. The remaining skin is then repositioned for a more toned look. If you have excess fat or skin around your belly button, or if your lower abdominal wall is weak, you may choose to have a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck can also improve your body image.

Why Should We Have Liposuction?

There are several reasons why you may have excess fat in your abdomen, poor elasticity of the skin, or weakened connective tissue. These include:

  • Significant changes in weight
  • Pregnancy
  • Abdominal surgery, such as a C-section
  • aging
  • Your natural body type

A tummy tuck can remove loose, excess skin and fat and tighten weak fascia. A tummy tuck can also remove stretch marks and excess skin in the lower abdomen below the belly button. However, tummy tuck will not correct stretch marks outside this area. If you have had a previous cesarean section, your plastic surgeon may include your current cesarean section scar in your tummy tuck scar. It can also be done in conjunction with other body contouring cosmetic procedures such as tummy tuck, breast surgery. If you have had fat removed from your abdomen (liposuction), you may decide to have a tummy tuck, because liposuction removes tissue and fat just under the skin, but does not remove excess skin.

Result

A tummy tuck can give your abdomen a tighter and slimmer appearance by removing excess skin and fat and strengthening your abdominal wall. Tummy tuck results usually last long if you keep your weight stable.

After Surgery

After tummy tuck surgery, your tummy tuck and belly button will likely be covered with surgical dressing. Small tubes may be placed along the incision site to drain excess blood or fluid. You will likely feel moderate pain, which will be controlled with pain medication. It is normal to have swelling in the operation area. Drains can be left in place for a few days after surgery. Your doctor will show you how to drain and maintain your expenses. You may need to continue taking antibiotics as long as the drains are in place. Your surgeon may also prescribe a blood-thinning medication for a short time after your tummy tuck. You will wear a supportive tummy tuck (tummy tuck) for about six weeks after your tummy tuck surgery. This helps prevent fluid buildup and provides abdominal support as you heal. Your doctor will explain how to take care of the scar. During the first six weeks after tummy tuck surgery, you need to be careful while moving. You should also avoid positions that force your incision line (such as leaning quickly at the waist) to prevent the wound from reopening.

Frequently Asked Questions

Like full tummy tuck surgery, the incision site is in the groin area in mini tummy tuck surgery. However, in mini tummy tuck surgery, the incision is not as long as a full tummy tuck. A shorter incision does not mean you will heal faster or have a shorter recovery period.
