RECOVERY FROM A TUMMY TUCK

Recovery after a tummy tuck requires you to be extremely compliant with the treatment. During your first week, including immediately after surgery, you should be able to walk around and drink fluids. shutterstock_236837416This will decrease your risk of complications, including blood clots. In general, you need to take about two weeks off work. This does not mean you are going to be completely recovered in two weeks; you need to be extremely patient, since it will take about nine months for all the swelling to go away and to see the final results. However, you will definitely see an improvement within the first month. You’re still going to feel lumpy, bumpy, and uneven in some areas, but this resolves with time.

You cannot lift anything heavy for five to six weeks, but you can start doing cardio in three to four weeks. Be sure that in the first week you do not walk straight; this can create openings in the incision and widen the scar, which can be prevented by walking with your hips flexed forward. You should start by drinking fluids and eating a soft diet. Do not eat hamburgers or other fatty food the first day after surgery, because it can cause nausea, and you want to avoid rupturing the incisions or loosening the staples. You can eat mashed potatoes, soups, and other fluids like juice, and in the second week you can progress to a more solid diet. You will need to wear a girdle for three to four months. This will help decrease your swelling significantly. During your postoperative recovery, we will guide you through all the steps you need to follow to expedite your recovery and produce a good result.

Now, let’s be honest: everybody wants a flat tummy, men and women alike. How many of you are dreaming of being able to sit down without showing that fat bundleshutterstock_50329978 you wear around your waist? But how do we get rid of that fat, why do we get the fat deposit in exactly that area, and why, no matter how much we exercise or diet, does the fat stay there?

As a specialist, I can tell you that abdominal fat is the most difficult to get rid of by means other than plastic surgery. Yes, abdominal fat is one of the most stubborn fat deposits in the body, partly due to the genetic inheritance that tells the body it needs to store fat there for emergencies. So, if you are trying to get rid of your abdominal fat by desperate measures like starving yourself, don’t be surprised to notice that the abdominal fat deposit even grows by a few centimeters.

Some of us tend to lose weight during stressful periods, while some of us will put on weight. If you lose weight, you will still find it difficult to shed centimeters off the tummy, and if you put on weight, you will be surprised to see that the adipose cells have the tendency to accumulate around the tummy area.

Sometimes it doesn’t really matter how much we exercise and how strict our diets are—abdominal fat seems unmovable. In some situations, the accumulation of fat is also associated with the “belly apron,” as we call the sagging skin on your belly. These situations can only be improved by the tummy tuck procedure, as it is the only way to get rid of both the abdominal fat and the excess skin.

You might have ended up with a belly apron after giving birth or losing a lot of weight. We know it can be extremely frustrating to get to the weight you want, but not to the body shape you are craving. This is where the tummy tuck can help you. While it is not a weight loss method, the tummy tuck procedure eliminates the excess fat deposits and loose skin on your belly.

While exercising and dieting are successful as a long-term plan for weight loss, you can get rid of that obnoxious abdominal fat in a day with a tummy tuck. Of course, we are talking here about a plastic surgery intervention that has its own risks and potential complications, but the advantages of having a tummy tuck are totally worth it, or so our patients say.

There is no faster way to shed centimeters from your waistline. With a tummy tuck, you can improve your body contours and even lose a few kilograms too, all in a day. Actually, to be more exact, the tummy tuck procedure takes two or three hours, depending on the patient and each case.

Wouldn’t it be just great to jump from the delivery room week4straight into the plastic surgery clinic and have a tummy tuck on the same day? Many women experience a feeling of desperation and sometimes even get depressed over the appearance of their bodies immediately after giving birth. We are talking here mainly about women who gained a lot of weight during pregnancy, although even those who didn’t put on too many kilograms can be disappointed with the different look of their bodies post-pregnancy. First and foremost is the tummy that doesn’t look as it did before, even in skinny women.

All new mothers want to get back to their before-pregnancy bodies as soon as possible. After you give birth, you will notice that much of the weight you put on comes off without any effort, but in most cases the tummy is the stubborn part of the body that refuses to get back into shape. Expecting to jump back into the before-pregnancy body immediately is not realistic, and we all should be aware of this. The post-pregnancy look of your tummy is entirely natural, and to be able to feel good in your skin again, it will take time and patience, as well as physical exercise and sometimes even a proper diet.

Do you look in the mirror, and instead of a svelte silhouette, see an abdomen without a definite shape that is not to your liking? Have you failed to get any results in the tummy area even with exercise and diet? Then it is time to consider a tummy tuck procedure. You can schedule your tummy tuck as soon as four to six months after giving birth, but no sooner.

Your body will need time to recover after giving birth, and you need to know that the remodeling of the tummy is different from individual to individual and depends on how you looked before the pregnancy and also on the way you gave birth (C-section or vaginal birth).

The tummy tuck procedure shouldn’t be scheduled in the first four months after giving birth, because the period after delivery can be extremely stressful and tiring for a new mother. Also, there is swelling of your abdomen, and you need to wait until the skin retracts. Our suggestion is to try to maintain a proper balance between rest and active periods to give yourself and your body a chance to restore and prepare for the tummy tuck procedure.

In the case of a vaginal birth, you will need two to six weeks to resume your daily activities from before the pregnancy and start exercising. If you have a C-section, the recovery period may be longer, and your doctor will allow you to start an exercise routine only after the six-week check and if the C-section looks good.

The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that will help you get rid of excess skin and fat on your abdomen. It will improve your looks and can also make you feel better about yourself and boost your confidence. Just be kind to yourself and give your body enough time to recover after the delivery, and then you can schedule your tummy tuck procedure.

If you have excess fat on your abdomen, you have probably shutterstock_394494271tried many methods to get rid of it, such as exercise and diet. If your stomach has sagged as a result of pregnancy, heredity factors, or abrupt weight change, a tummy tuck can be a great option for you.

The tummy tuck procedure is perfect for you if you are in good mental and physical health, are at a stable weight, and don’t smoke. It can be completed in a two- to three-hour surgical session under general sedation. Below are the steps involved in the tummy tuck surgery:

Step 1: Selection of incision site

The procedure starts with your plastic surgeon selecting a site for incision. Your doctor will use a surgical marker to identify the site. If you have told your surgeon that you’ll be wearing low-cut underwear or a bikini, the mark will be placed on your lower tummy.

Step 2: Disinfecting the abdomen and pubis region

In the second step, your doctor will disinfect your tummy and pubis area with an antiseptic liquid. This step is important because it decreases the likelihood of infection at the surgical site.

Step 3: Blood pressure check and application of compression cuff

In this step, the surgeon will use an apparatus to check your blood pressure. In order to decrease the risk of blood clot formation, your surgeon may apply compression cuffs on your legs.

Step 4: The administration of sedation or general anesthesia

Step 4 is the most critical step because the tummy tuck procedure is performed under general anesthesia, so chances are you will receive sedation in the form of gas via a surgical mask. There is also the possibility that your plastic surgeon will administer sedation via an IV line. During your initial consultation sessions with your doctor, you should make sure to ask what sort of anesthesia will be used during the surgery.

Step 5: The incision

After the administration of anesthesia, you will be asleep and step 5 will occur. Your surgeon will make an careful incision at the selected site in the lower region of your tummy. If you are undergoing a mini tummy tuck, your surgeon will create a very short incision. Your belly button will stay intact while your surgeon lifts the skin and fat off the belly muscle.

Step 6: Abdominal muscle examination and tightening

In this step, your belly muscle will be examined to see if it has detached at the midpoint, and if so, the muscles will be sealed to tighten your sagging abdominal wall.

Step 7: Removal of extra fat and skin

This step involves the removal of extra skin and fat. Accurate measurements will be taken in order to prevent rigidity after the closure of the incision. The fat will be extracted, and your skin will be tightened and closed.

Step 8: Placement of cannula

This is the final step in the usual tummy tuck; your plastic surgeon will place a cannula between your skin layers at the surgical site, so blood and fluids that accumulate at the location can be drained away. The cannula will be removed during your follow-up consultation.

Step 9: Fat transfer

If you have an hourglass tummy tuck, fat transfer will be done on your hips for the ultimate hourglass shape.

You can return to your normal routine within two weeks after a tummy tuck; however, you should be careful to avoid engaging in strenuous activities. The full results of the tummy tuck will be apparent after at least six months.
