Detalii

Sport, regular diets and targeted exercises are not always enough to regain a flat abdomen. Pregnancies, fluctuations in weight and lack of physical activity can be the cause of excess fat tissue and saggy skin in the abdominal area. Full tummy tuck or complete abdominoplasty is a popular cosmetic procedure which reshapes the abdomen by removing excess fat and excess skin, but also by strengthening the muscles of the abdominal wall. This method essentially allows correcting the deformations of the abdomen, to tighten the relaxed muscles, and to stretch the skin to obtain a "flat" belly. A full tummy tuck is usually performed for aesthetic purposes, but can also be performed for functional reasons since it can provide a muscle repair.

How Does it Work?

A full tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery of improving the appearance of the abdominal wall. This procedure is offered to people who suffer from an excess or a fatty abdomen, associated with a bad elasticity and with a relaxation of the abdominal muscles. This procedure can be very effective and satisfactory by itself or it can be combined with other procedures such as liposculpture at the hips.


What Does Full Tummy Tuck Treatment Involve?

1.    Consultation for Full Tummy Tuck

The first step to start your full tummy tuck process will be the online consultation. At this stage, our specialist will ask you some questions to define your problems and try to learn your complaints and demands first. The main target of this stage is to make sure whether you are a suitable candidate for a full tummy tuck or not. Your health history, allergies, medications you use, previous surgeries and your expectations about the process are the most important data to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you. The photo of your abdominal area will be very useful to understand your current status and eligibility during this online consultation phase.

2.    Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

At this stage, after it has been decided that you are the right candidate for the procedure, we will share the results of the clinic and surgeon; which we filter according to the criteria we receive from you. After you make a selection among them, we proceed to the stage of date determination, trip plan and detailed adjustments.

3.    Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon. In this conversation, he or she will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations and also make you understand what you should expect from your full tummy tuck surgery. Your surgeon and your clinic will explain everything you need to know about your process and try to simulate the results as much as possible, in order you to feel well-prepared and comfortable.

4.    Medical Examinations

Before the full tummy tuck procedure begins, you will undergo necessary medical tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the procedure. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing will hinder the success of the surgery and if any risk detected, surgeons try to eliminate them first.

5.    Surgery

  • Before the Surgery: It is recommended to quit smoking at least one month before and after surgery not to impair healing. Taking aspirin is prohibited during the 10 days preceding the operation. The skin will be disinfected using an antiseptic solution or soap applied the day before and the morning of the operation. It is recommended not to eat or drink anything 6 hours before the operation.
  • During the Surgery: The surgeon begins to draw on the patient's skin with a special marker. These drawings define the positions of the scars. In the vast majority of cases, there will be a horizontal scar hidden by the underwear, a small scar around the navel and there is also a small circular scar around the umbilicus. After the general anesthesia is applied, the surgeon begins by removing the excess fatty tissue by liposuction. After a detachment of the abdominal skin, the excess skin will be removed. This will help tighten the abdominal skin. In many cases, the surgeon will correct the distance between the abdominal muscles by performing numerous deep sutures. This makes it possible to tighten the waist, to have a flat stomach, and to give a certain tone to the abdominal wall.  The plastic surgeon completes his work by suturing the incisions with absorbable sutures. Vacuum drains are left in place for a few days.
  • After the Surgery: Patients can go home on the day of surgery or the next day according to their postoperative health status. In the first days, the surgical scars may be red and swollen, but over time, their color and swelling will disappear. After a full tummy tuck, the skin of the abdomen appears to be numb for a while. This will also disappear in a few days. Patients can return to work after 2 weeks Although recovery is completed within 2-3 weeks, patients should be careful while doing sportive activities, especially avoiding strenuous activities for 1-2 months. It may be necessary to wait 6 to 12 weeks to see the results of the full tummy tuck procedure.


4 Important Recovery Tips After Full Tummy Tuck

Be Patient

Immediately after a full tummy tuck, the abdominal area does not yet have its final appearance because the tissues will be full of edema and may have bruises due to the operation. The abdomen may then be slightly swollen. The body will eliminate this edema on its own gradually, but it will take between 3 and 6 months for everything to be eliminated and for the final result to be seen.

Wear a Compression Garment

A special garment that was prescribed to you by your cosmetic surgeon before the operation has a fundamental role and must be worn day and night for 4 to 6 weeks. It allows to reduce the postoperative edema and fluid retention, helps the skin to tighten and reduces tension on the sutures in the scars and abdominal muscles.

Get Help

It is recommended that you reduce your daily activities for the first few days after a tummy tuck and do not make any efforts that could trigger pain or make you tired. At this stage, you may need someone who helps you to do daily tasks for which you are responsible. You will be able to increase your activities gradually, until your complete recovery in general after 2 or 3 weeks.

Reducing daily activities to limit fatigue does not mean staying in bed. On the contrary, it is advisable to walk slightly after a full tummy tuck, to promote circulation and to reduce the risk of phlebitis.

Maintain a Balanced Diet

The body needs the energy to heal well after a full tummy tuck surgery. It is therefore not advisable to follow a restrictive diet after this operation. Make sure you have a balanced diet, drink lots of water to eliminate edema, and favor iron-rich foods to compensate for the blood loss linked to the operation (red meats, nuts and seeds, beans, lentils, bran cereals, quinoa, boiled spinach…).

 

FAQ

Is Full Tummy Tuck Procedure Painful?

Mild pain and discomfort may occur after surgery, but this post-operative pain can be easily managed with simple painkillers. Your doctor will prescribe medications that will increase your comfort during the recovery period and also reduce the risk of possible complications.

Is Pregnancy Possible After A Full Tummy Tuck?

Pregnancy is possible after a full tummy tuck; you will have to wait 1 year after surgery before getting pregnant. However, pregnancy can regenerate sagging skin and abdominal wall muscles, which can make the results of the full tummy tuck ineffective. Even if a full tummy tuck is possible before pregnancy, it's usually best to have it after pregnancies are no longer desired.

How to Sleep After A Full Tummy Tuck?

After a full tummy tuck, it is advisable to sleep in a position that does not involve any stretching on the sutures, i.e. on the back, knees bent, with pillows under the knees.
