Before and During the Procedure
Before the surgery, the surgeon will carry out a medical evaluation to verify your appropriateness. To be an ideal candidate of tummy tuck, you must have a stable weight, be physically healthy and a non-smoker. The whole operation will only require two to five hours. Before anything else, the patient will be placed under general anesthesia. The surgeon will then make an incision over the pubic hairline; the surgeon will ensure that the incision is in a concealable site. After that, the loose, excess skin is taken out and the abdominal muscles are fixed through sutures. Finally, the incision is closed. During tummy tuck, the navel might be remodeled or relocated and liposuction might be completed in nearby body areas.
After the Procedure
The results you can obtain after a tummy tuck are a flatter abdomen, tighter abdominal skin, visible muscle tone and a curvy shape. Instantly following the tummy tuck, discomfort, numbness, and swelling can be experienced but these can be managed with the prescribed medication. To control swelling, aid proper healing and support the new body form, a bandage or compression garment is required to be worn within several weeks. The total recovery time is around three weeks. Furthermore, the patient must get enough rest and should avoid energy-demanding activities/exercises for a number of weeks. To sustain your new figure, a healthy lifestyle should be maintained.
