Abdominoplasty

Experience a transformation with abdominoplasty, also known as ‘Tummy Tuck’. This procedure removes excess fat and tightens abdominal muscles, sculpting a slimmer waist and youthful silhouette.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck can provide a variety of aesthetic and medical benefits:

  • Improved body contour
  • Reduces stubborn excess fat from your abdomen
  • Removal of loose, hanging skin
  • Helps clothing fit more attractively
  • Elimination of stretch marks
  • Improved posture
  • Reduces anxiety and self-awareness

What Does a Tummy Tuck Involve?

A tummy tuck is typically performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia either in a hospital or in an outpatient facility. It usually lasts two to three hours.

The specific technique for the procedure will be determined by the patient’s underlying anatomies, location, and amount of excess skin.

The most common tummy tuck techniques are:

Standard or full: it uses hip to hip incision below the navel and a second incision around the belly buttock so that it can be repositioned after removing the excess skin in the upper abdomen.

Extended: The horizontal incision reaches around the hips, it also requires a round incision to free the navel and reposition it higher once the excess skin has been removed.

Fleur-de-lis: Aside from the horizontal incision, it also requires a vertical scar. This technique is reserved for patients that need the most amount of correction to achieve the best possible post-operational contour.

Mini: are only suitable for patients who need minimal improvement. It requires a 4-8 inches scar above the pubic region.

Liposuction techniques may also be used according to aesthetic desired results.

Recovery

After your tummy tuck procedure, anticipate mild to moderate bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You’ll receive prescription pain medication and antibiotics to prevent infection.

Drains are inserted to aid fluid removal. Post-surgery, you’ll receive initial bandages and dressings, usually removed within a week. Maintain cleanliness and dryness until your follow-up.

Flex hips at 45 degrees post-tummy tuck to prevent incision stretching and promote scar maturation for better aesthetics.

For optimal healing, refrain from physical activity for two weeks.

Risk

All medical and surgical procedures have inherent risks and complications that are associated with them. While these are rare and unlikely to occur, they should be discussed with your plastic surgeon during the consultation process.

Results

You will be expected to see visible aesthetic improvements immediately after your procedure, these will continue to improve over the following weeks as incision sites heal and swelling decreases.

Your newly sculptured, lean, and more youthful silhouette will ease you into your everyday social interactions. Heighten your confidence, boost your self-esteem, and improve your overall quality of life.
