WHAT IS AN EXTENDED TUMMY TUCK ?


TUMMY TUCK There are different types of tummy tuck depending on the amount of excessive skin and degree of muscle weakness you have. During an hourglass tummy tuck, the abdominal wall is tightened and the excess skin is removed; liposuction is also performed and fat transfer is done on the hips. Every single patient who comes to my practice wants to have a tummy tuck with a 2 cm incision. This is absolutely not possible. The amount of excess skin you have will determine how long your scar is going to be. Patients have this perception that anybody can have a mini tummy tuck or a modified tummy tuck to improve their abdomen, but this is not true. For most patients the scar goes from hip to hip, but in certain situations, like patients who have lost a lot of skin or patients who have gained too much weight and have stretch marks all the way to the flank and beyond, the scar needs to be extended toward the back and sometimes toward the midline on the back. For the most part, it just goes posteriorly for about 8 to 10 cm. This is what is called an extended tummy tuck: where the scar goes past the hips and toward the back. This is necessary because if you do not excise the excess skin, you are going to develop bunching and puckering of the skin on the sides, leaving you with an unsatisfactory outcome. You need to be realistic about what a tummy tuck can do for you.

In the event that you need to have an extended tummy tuck, you need to let the surgeon do his job, because if you try to minimize the scar, your results are not going to be as good and you are going to have excessive skin in these areas. During your consultation, I will assess the amount of excess skin that you are going to have, and based on experience, I can tell you before surgery where to expect the location of the scar and how long the scar is going to be. If you are not willing to accept the necessary steps to recreate your hourglass shape, including a longer scar, I prefer not to do your surgery.

OBESITY AND TUMMY TUCK We have previously discussed how the risk of surgical complications increases steadily with a body mass index (BMI) above 35. It is very important to be within a normal weight prior to surgery to help prevent complications like seroma, infection, and slow wound healing, among other things. When a tummy tuck is performed, a lower abdominal incision is done and then dissection is continued toward the midline; the abdominal wall is tightened, the excess skin is removed, and the incision is closed with multiple-layer sutures. What is the importance of losing weight before this surgery? Well, when the lower abdominal incision is performed, the blood supply to the abdomen comes from the top. Before surgery, there is a dual blood supply coming from the bottom and the top, but after the incision is performed, the blood supply that comes from the bottom part is essentially compromised. When patients are overweight, perfusion is diminished. This is why an overweight patient who has a tummy tuck has a higher chance of slow wound healing.

Another consideration is the belly button. When somebody has gained weight, the belly button is elongated; because it is attached to the abdominal wall, it actually gets longer the more fat you have in your abdomen. This can cause problems with wound healing. If you look at this diagram, the cylinder is the belly button, which extends from the level of the skin to the level of the abdominal wall. If you gain weight, the belly button gets much longer. When a tummy tuck is performed and the belly button is detached, the longer the belly button, the less blood will reach the end of the belly button. This is why there is a higher risk of losing the belly button and having wound healing problems around it when you are overweight. The important thing to understand is that because the belly button itself is a scar from birth, wounds around it are not going to heal very well.

The bottom line is that before any cosmetic surgery, you need to understand that having a weight within the normal range is important to avoid wound healing problems around the belly button or in any area where an incision is made.

Liposuction is one of the trendy ways to rejuvenate your body. The procedure gets rid of extra and unnecessary fat you might have added over the years.liposuction The procedure is normally performed on the hips, tummy, thighs, bum, or face.

So, have you made up your mind to undergo liposuction? Well, you still have time to think again. The procedure requires rigorous preparation. You’ll find yourself storing supplies, feeling nervous, and experiencing emotional disturbance. It can be a very hectic time for most people,but with the right preparation, you can beat the stress and make it convenient.

But, how exactly do you prepare for liposuction? Your doctor can provide valuable tips to get ready for the procedure, but it is always wise to take the lead yourself. So, here’s how you prepare for liposuction:

  • Before the procedure, make sure to ask your doctor to revisit your medical history. Also,discuss with the surgeon any medications you are currently taking.
  • You will be asked to undergo lab tests.
  • Make sure to confirm your surgery date, time, and place with your surgeon.
  • If you are a smoker, you will also be required to quit smoking. When you stop smoking, it actually helps the healing process and decreases the risk of complications during the surgery.
  • If you are taking aspirin, supplements, or anti-inflammatory drugs, you should stop using them two to three weeks before your surgery.
  • If you are a regular alcohol user, make sure to decrease your intake or stop it completely. Alcohol hampers the healing process by decreasing your liver’s capability to metabolize medicines.
  • Eat well, stay stress-free, sleep well, and stay away from people who are ill.
  • If you are pregnant, don’t think about undergoing liposuction or any other surgery.
  • When you go for liposuction, you need to arrange to have someone take care of chores at home. If you have a child or pet, make certain to arrange care for them too.
  • Make sure to have a loved one by your side during your recovery period, especially during the first 24 hours after the surgery. Should you wish, you can hire an experienced nurse to take care of you during the recovery period.
  • Don’t forget to ask your surgeon what precautionary measures you’ll be required to take after the procedure and for how long.
  • Ask your surgeon about the type of anesthesia that will be used for sedation, and be mentally ready to cope with any dizziness and nausea after the procedure.
  • Make sure to take any drugs your surgeon may prescribe for you before and after the surgery.
  • Arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure.

 

With the right preparations, you will not regret undergoing this procedure, and you will recover fast. Do not be afraid to discuss all of your concerns with your surgeon prior to the procedure.

Many of us lie awake thinking about becoming slim overnight. In recent years, obesity has affected more and more people,Slide1 and a liposuction procedure might sometimes look like the ideal solution to get rid of extra fat on the thighs, knees, or abdomen. But liposuction is not a weight loss program: it is a procedure meant to improve your body contours by removing fat deposits in areas of your body that are difficult to address with exercise.

If you go to any plastic surgeon to ask for liposuction in order to lose weight, they will all tell you the same thing: liposuction is not a diet, and you cannot undergo liposuction to lose weight. It is used to remodel the body after a weight loss program, after pregnancy, or just to correct a genetic disposition.

If there were a general remedy for obesity that we could all use with no side effects, no one would ever diet or go to the gym again. But the only way to lose weight and maintain the results over time is through dieting and exercising. Plastic surgery and liposuction can help improve the results and give your body the shape you desire.

Some might argue that liposuction is a sort of localized weight loss procedure, as it targets fat in particular areas of the body; while it might look like this is true, weight loss is usually measured in kilograms and with a scale. In the case of liposuction, we measure the results in centimeters and with the mirror.

It is essential to mention that liposuction doesn’t remove visceral fat, which is the most dangerous type in obese people. The fat that can be eliminated through liposuction is not correlated with weight loss. During the first few months after the liposuction procedure is performed, it is highly possible that the patient’s weight will stay the same, because the volume of fat removed is replaced by fluids that are gradually eliminated during the recovery period.

We would also like to discuss the difference between liposuction and the surgical procedures recommended for obesity. Procedures like the gastric sleeve have the sole goal of controlling obesity by reducing the patient’s ability to ingest food. The stomach is cut to become much smaller, and large meals are no longer an option after the procedure. Reducing the quantity of food is meant to reduce weight in time. After one of these kinds of procedures, patients might lose weight and find that they are left with a lot of extra skin or localized fat that they just can’t get rid of. This is when plastic surgery can help with liposuction or a tummy tuck, as well as other procedures meant to smooth the contours of the body and improve the appearance.

The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure where the doctor removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower areas of your abdomen. This method can significantly improve the look of your tummy by eliminating the obnoxious wrinkled shutterstock_25671454skin that sometimes appears as a result of a serious weight loss program or after pregnancy. Your tummy will look firmer and tighter, not to mention that some stretch marks may also be eliminated in the process. However, the tummy tuck procedure is not meant to get rid of all the stretch marks on your abdomen. Depending on the position of the stretch marks, some will be removed with the excess skin, but others will remain where they are.

The procedure is recommended to both men and women who have extra skin on the abdomen and find it difficult or impossible to get rid of it through dieting or exercising. Also, it is a procedure that appeals to many women who have just given birth and are left with what can look like a pouch of fat at the stomach level.

Just like with any plastic surgery procedure, setting up realistic expectations is vital to the success of the operation. You need to know that after the surgery, for about a month, you will need to wear an elastic belt, and physical effort should be avoided at all costs. For a few days after the procedure, your abdomen may be swollen, and numbness and bruises can occur. Medication can and will be prescribed to control the discomfort, pain, and weakness. In three to six months, the scars will become less and less visible, and while they will never completely disappear, it will be tough to see them in a year’s time; you will probably need a magnifier.

If you want to have this procedure done in preparation for a significant event in your life (your wedding day, for example), you will need to take into consideration that the estimated results will be visible in about four months’ time: no sooner. Also, for a while after the surgery you may find it difficult to resume your daily activities at the same intensity; you will be recovering from abdominal surgery, after all.

When discussing your expectations with the doctor, it is important to tell him all the special conditions you might face. For example, taking care of an infant with no help around can be quite difficult, if not impossible, immediately after the tummy tuck procedure. Your doctor will paint a very realistic picture of what to expect after the tummy tuck surgery. While your abdomen will definitely look much better and you will fit into clothes that you never dreamt of before the surgery, it won’t bring back your body from before the pregnancy or before you started putting on weight. There are changes your body went through that make it difficult for it to jump back to the previous shape instantly. But a tummy tuck combined with exercise and a proper diet can lead to an even better-looking body in time!

If you are not one of the lucky few who are born with a natural hourglass body, there are ways you can achieve this most envied figure. shutterstock_428559472There are a variety of plastic surgery procedures to give you a round and curvy figure, with a sharp waist, rounder buttocks and bust, and attractive, large thighs. Plastic surgery will help you achieve a more feminine silhouette, with an S-curve on the rear, which is the most important element of the hourglass body.

While there are a number of plastic surgery procedures to get the hourglass figure, the hourglass tummy tuck is the most popular and advanced body contouring method to achieve your dream silhouette. The procedure combines conventional tummy tuck practices with fat transfer and liposuction. The good news is that this trendy procedure will give you not only a more even and tauter abdomen, but also a rounded outline.

The hourglass tummy tuck procedure is recommended for women who want to not only flatten their abdomen, but also transform their shape to achieve a natural-like hourglass figure. The slim waistline and tighter and flatter abdomen you achieve with this procedure will put you on a par with women boasting the natural hourglass body. The degree to which your abdomen will be flattened in this procedure depends completely on your goals, expectations, personal needs, and desires.

According to studies, there are three broad categories of women seeking the tummy tuck procedure: those who want to get rid of excess skin and fat, those who want to achieve a flatter abdomen, and those who desire tauter skin and a flatter tummy. The hourglass tummy tuck procedure is a perfect answer for women in all these categories because it meets all these aesthetic needs at once, based on the unique needs and desires of each patient.

In the hourglass tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Cortes will first make an incision in your skin and remove the extra skin and fat from the surgical site. The surgical site will then be sealed in the shape of a corset, so the muscles in the tummy wall are flattened. Liposuction is recommended to contour your abdomen, and he will transfer fat to the hips for the ultimate hourglass shape.

You can return to your daily routine a week after the hourglass tummy tuck procedure. However, you should take proper care of your health and strictly follow your surgeon’s instructions in order to enjoy the benefits of your hourglass figure.

Today I am going to talk about the muscle weakness that occur after pregnancies and is called diastasis recti. It is important for you to understand week4the reason for the muscle weakness that occur after pregnancy and why is important to repair this pathology during a tummy tuck. During pregnancy the slowly expanding uterus slowly stretches the abdominal musculature including the fibrous tissue. The recti muscles are a pair of muscles that expands from the lower chest all the way to the pelvic. There is fibrous tissue between these two muscles. Now this fibrous tissue also stretches during pregnancy but many times it does not return to its previous form creating a weakness in the abdominal wall. This is the reason why after pregnancy even if you do exercise you may still have a weakness of the abdominal wall. This is because the problem is not be actual muscle per se but the tissue between the muscles and exercise will not fix this problem.

During a tummy tuck the muscles are sutured together in the midline to restore them to their previous anatomical position. These allow pushing the abdominal context in, decreasing your abdominal weakness, decreasing the size of your waistline and provide you with a better result. The repair is done from the lower chest all the way to the pelvic

I hope you have understand what diastasis recti means and why is important to repair this during a tummy tuck.

The tummy tuck is a great method to tighten the abdominal muscles and eliminate excess skin and fat from the bellyshutterstock_294597116 so that it becomes even and toned. Like every surgery, the tummy tuck has its own downsides, with scarring on the abdomen being one of the prominent ones. If you have zero tolerance for scarring, you might want to rethink your decision to undergo a tummy tuck procedure.

Tummy tuck candidates may be concerned about the appearance of scars after the procedure, but it is important to understand that if the procedure is performed by a highly qualified, experienced, and skilled plastic surgeon, the visibility of the scars can be reduced. A proficient plastic surgeon will place the tummy tuck incisions carefully, so they are less visible.

The appearance of scars after the tummy tuck also depends on the methods your plastic surgeon uses. Your surgeon can take some solid steps to make certain that the scars are perfectly placed and thin, so that even when you wear a bikini, the scars will not be noticeable.

Full tummy tuck scarring

When it comes to a full tummy tuck, the incision normally starts from one hipbone and ends on the other hipbone, and so does the scar. The incision can either be in a U-cut or V-cut outline, so the scarring is concealed in a bikini. Your plastic surgeon will decide on the shape and extent of the incision based on your expectations and the extent of improvement required. Your surgeon may make the incisions with great care, but it is important for you to discuss it with the surgeon before the surgery. You must know where the incisions will be placed and how the scarring will appear.

Mini tummy tuck scarring

In the mini tummy tuck, your plastic surgeon can place the scars as low as feasible; they can be concealed in the pubic bone region. This procedure removes extra skin from the abdomen below the belly button area, and no incision is made around the belly button. The extent of a mini tummy tuck scar depends on the amount of skin your plastic surgeon removes from the area.

Remember, scars are more prominent, longer, and higher in the case of a full tummy tuck than in a mini tummy tuck. However, you can easily conceal any of them with underwear or a bikini. If you have already undergone a C-section, the new scars may be fused into the existing scars.

It is important to understand that tummy tuck scars may require more than 12 months to diminish as much as possible. Your plastic surgeon may try to make the incisions as carefully as possible, but there’s no assurance. It is important to follow your surgeon’s guidelines religiously to have the best chance of a successful tummy tuck surgery with minimal scarring.

A tummy tuck is an invasive procedure where the skin is excised and the abdominal muscles are tightened, recreating a nice figure, particularly if you have an hourglass tummy tuck. Patients may have the general impression shutterstock_383564032that after surgery, you should stay in bed and not do anything at all. This is absolutely not true; beds are for sick people and not for patients who have had cosmetic surgery. I recommend that my patients start moving around the same day after a tummy tuck. You need to move to improve the blood flow from the legs; if you are not moving around, you can have serious complications including a blood clot. The surgery causes inflammation everywhere, and your heart and vital organs are working harder to withstand the stress of the surgery. When there is inflammation, the blood gets very thick and the body is in a hypercoagulable state, which can result in a blood clot. Also, when you stay in bed, particularly if you are not lying in the right anatomical position, you can develop atelectasis, which is a small collapse of the alveolus of the lung and makes it more likely for you to have respiratory problems and pneumonia.

 

I recommend that my patients walk around four or five times a day after surgery for about five to 10 minutes. Get out of bed, go to the kitchen, stay active, but do not lift anything heavy. The more active and mobile you are, the faster you will recover, since you are helping the lymphatic system to drain fluid as well as helping the body heal faster by improving perfusion in the legs and other areas.

There is a set of rules to be followed after any cosmetic surgery procedure that will ensure a better and faster recovery for the patient. Starting with the day the surgery is performed, for the next few weeks or even months,shutterstock_94533061 you must follow the doctor’s recommendations.

After you leave the clinic, you will be required to take it slow for a time to allow the body to recover. But even the day you get home, the doctor will recommend you take short walks around the house, garden, or neighborhood. Walking will help with the recovery process and prevent potential complications like blood clots. Slight discomfort is normal for the first few days or weeks after the surgery, depending on the type of procedure you had done.

Another important recommendation that should not be overlooked is wearing a girdle after some types of surgery. Many ask why the girdle is essential for post-operative recovery and why all the doctors insist on it. Aside from the fact that the girdle will help decrease swelling and lumpiness, it will also provide a better shape after the procedure. Some will only be required to wear it for a few weeks, but for better results it is recommended to wear the girdle for four or even five months after your cosmetic surgery.

Wearing the girdle is not painful, and most patients don’t even mention discomfort. It has the unique capacity to reduce edemas, compress the skin, and stimulate the draining of fluids. The girdle is required to be worn day and night after the surgery for at least a month. When the doctor allows it, you can start wearing the girdle for only 12 hours a day. For your comfort and improved aesthetic results, it is recommended you wear the girdle for as long as your doctor advises you to.

There are always some patients who decide to stop wearing the girdle as soon as they feel like they have recovered, without understanding the benefits and the importance of keeping the girdle on for an extended period of time. If you feel like you really need to stop wearing the girdle because it is too tight and it is causing itchiness or a burning sensation, see your doctor before doing anything else. The solution to your issue might be as easy as loosening the girdle. As we always say, it is crucial to discuss everything with your doctor, who has the knowledge and experience to explain things in detail and give you the best choices that will ensure an optimal recovery time and long-lasting results.

Wearing the girdle is an important step in the recovery process, just as crucial as taking the antibiotics that were prescribed for you or avoiding lifting heavy things. Your doctor will be the one to advise you on the appropriate time to wear the girdle, so always follow his recommendations.
