Wishing for a flat tummy?

Weight loss or pregnancy may often result in extra abdominal skin, fat, and stretched abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck is a procedure to get your abdomen back to its ideal shape.

Tummy tuck abroad

In case your only worry is a surplus amount of fat in the abdominal area, liposuction alone may be enough to get the wanted result. If you are unsure, simply sign up for a free e-consultation with our surgeon.

Tummy tuck goes as following: the lower abdomen is incised, leaving a belly button connected to the abdominal wall. Skin, together with the fat tissue, is raised from the muscles to the ribs. If necessary, fat from the sides of the abdomen may be removed with additional liposuction. Abdominal muscles are then tightened and shortened by stitching them together. Superfluous fat and skin are removed at the upper line of the incision. The surgeon then brings the belly button out through the incision and sutures it in its new position on the skin. For the several days following the procedure, the drains are inserted beneath the skin.

Tummy tuck abroad can be combined with other body & breast lifts (this is also known as mommy make-over).

Procedure

  1. Usually, a patient has excess fat and skin in the abdominal region. Scar length varies depending on the amount of extra skin. The scar will be put below the bikini line.
  2. In case of muscle stretching because of pregnancy, they are brought back together;
  3. Surplus skin is pulled down and removed.
  4. The belly button is brought through the skin to its normal location. The scars are hidden in the bikini line. They will be hidden, but they do exist. The scars can stretch over time because of tension. If anything, they can be bettered in one year after the surgery, during a scar revision.

 

After tummy tuck

Usually, the stitches are removed on the last day of the patient’s trip. Any hard or intense work is prohibited for a month after the procedure and it is recommended to take a rest for 2-3 weeks. For all the swelling to go away completely, it can take months. Right after the procedure, patients frequently complain about numbness in the abdominal region and thighs. The sensation usually comes back over time. Scars left around the abdomen and belly button fade over time and become less obvious.

Potential complications: bleeding, healing problems, infections, asymmetry. The skin is weakened during the procedure, so there is a slim risk of loss of some skin due to insufficient circulation of blood. This risk is bigger for people with certain types of old scars and for people who smoke. It is crucial to quit smoking and using aspirin at least 14 days before the surgery.
