Tummy Tuck is the more common name given to abdominoplasty, which is a cosmetic procedure to tighten up muscles in the abdomen (stomach area), as well as removing and/or repositioning excess skin and fat.
Women who became a mother or have lost a considerable amount of weight will likely have surplus skin in this area of the body, as well as scarring, which can affect self-esteem. Eradicating those issues can instil confidence in the patient, as it gives them an appealing contour.
Abdominoplasty is essentially the removal of extra skin and fat from the stomach. Since many individuals also have excess fat at the same time, it is typically necessary to replace it with liposuction.
If the stomach muscles have moved away from the mid-line and deviated from each other owing to conception or overweight, the stomach muscles may be compressed and the waistline may be thinned to some degree during this process.
When there is too much sagging in the abdomen, rashes and bad smell may occur under the skin fold. Constipation is a common problem in people with abdominal muscles dissociated. If there is a very heavy sagging in the abdomen, it may overload the spine and cause a hernia. Abdominal stretching surgery can overcome these problems.
In general, there are different techniques such as mini tummy tuck, full tummy tuck, 360-degree tummy tuck and various variations. It is performed only if there is excess skin in the bottom of the belly button in mini abdominal stretching. If there is a sagging in the upper part of the belly button, full abdominal stretching is performed. If the excess skin continues towards the back of the waist, 360-degree abdominal stretching is performed. Abdominal stretching surgery is mostly combined with liposuction of the abdomen and lumbar region.
You have a dedicated team of patient advisors, nurses, and your surgeon to support you throughout the entire journey, and after it. However, Tummy Tuck is a surgery that demands you to take several steps to help ensure that your treatment goes as smoothly as possible. Avoiding some points can help you recover faster, and also minimize the risk of complications.
At the initial stage, it is necessary for you to update the surgeon on all existing and previously prescribed medications.
Smoking is strictly prohibited, including all types of tobacco products and even e-cigarettes. Smoking can cause potential issues with how a patient recovers, and increases risk of post-surgery complications.
Please abstain from herbal teas and supplementation.
Blood thinning medications such as aspirin, coraspin, ecopirin, coumadin, and clexan should no longer be taken.
Do not use any painkillers, unless they have paracetamol included. If you must use it, inform the surgeon.
You must not eat any food or drink any type of beverage (including water), at least 8 hours prior to your surgery. Chewing gum is also not permitted.
Please take a bath or shower the night before your surgery, and/or in the morning of surgery.
Contact lenses must be removed, makeup should not be used and jewelry shall not be worn.
For a tummy tuck operation, we advise strongly to wear comfortable clothes, and if possible, a buttoned shirt for the surgeon’s convenience.
Your Tummy Tuck will be carried out with the utmost care by your surgeon and you can be sure that the same standard of care will continue during the regular post operative checks to ensure a smooth recovery.
Pregnancy is not permitted within the first 1 year following surgery. You will need to wear an abdominal corset for 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the post-operative situation. Any discomfort may be anticipated in the following few days, which can be managed with oral painkillers. Nonetheless, the actions and daily activities may be significantly reduced for a week depending on the circumstances.
