How Do I Look After A Tummy Tuck?

October 6th, 2017

How Do I Look After A Tummy TuckEven if you work on your midsection through extensive exercises, there is still a chance that it won’t appear as tight as you want it to be. The muscles may already be toned, but if there is significant excess skin and fat, it will make your tummy feel and look undesirable. A remedy for this is to have a tummy tuck done.

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure meant to provide patients with a more toned tummy. This procedure involves having skin and fat removed to tighten the appearance of the abdomen. Most patients who undergo a tummy tuck are those who experienced massive weight loss because they have lots of loose skin and fat around their midsection. It is also common for women who have gone through a pregnancy and simply want to get rid of the excess skin in this area.

Seeing the results of your tummy tuck can be very exciting, but don’t expect to see it right away. The new look that you are hoping for won’t be available for you to see until you have completely recovered from the surgery. There will still be a lot of swelling, especially after the surgery. Don’t get disheartened because the swelling will eventually subside. Apart from the swelling, there may also be some bruising over the tummy area. You may see patches in different colors, but you don’t have to worry because these will also disappear as you recover from the surgery. Your surgeon will provide you with a support garment that you are required to wear for a certain period after the surgery. This will help control the swelling and also provide the compression to help you heal better and faster.

One major concern most patients have is that whether they will have visible scarring after the surgery. Of course it is expected to have scars with this kind of surgery, but surgeons will strategically place them to ensure that they are not visible and are kept hidden. You should be able to confidently wear swimming trunks or a bikini. Some patients tend to panic after seeing their scars after the surgery, but you have to remember that it will eventually look better as the healing takes place.

On the other hand, there is also a possibility that there would be a scar on the belly button since the incision is done there, which causes patients to be concerned about how the belly button will look like. It is a valid concern because there are others who have a fake looking belly button after the surgery, but basically the final appearance of your belly button will depend on how good the surgeon is on reconstructing it. This is why it is important to find a trusted and qualified surgeon whom you trust. You should also talk to the surgeon and clear out this concern before the surgery, in order to prevent any dissatisfaction on your part. Taking these precautions may help prevent you from eventually getting a revision umbilicoplasty (a procedure that corrects scarred belly buttons).

In case you are really unhappy with the scars you get, there are things that can be done to minimize it. There are a lot of products in the market that you can use topically, whereas some opt for injectable solutions or even a scar revision surgery to help lessen the degree of scarring.

The results of your new tight tummy should be permanent. especially if you know how to take care of yourself properly. However, getting pregnant or gaining lots of weight can cause you to revert back or negatively affect your tummy. So for those who are still not done with bearing children, it is advised to hold off on taking the tummy tuck and just have it when you are already done expanding the family.

How extensive is the scarring after the tummy tuck?

September 29th, 2017

How extensive is the scarring after the tummy tuck?There are quite a number of people who are afraid of going through a tummy tuck even if qualified. The fear stems from reasonable concerns about post-operative scarring. While the tummy tuck is a major plastic surgery, and the scarring is relatively deeper and extensive, there are many factors in play that determine the extent of scarring after a tummy tuck.

One of the important factors that will affect the appearance of your tummy tuck scar depends on the technique your plastic surgeon uses during the surgery. There are different incision placement techniques for a tummy tuck surgery and if properly placed, your scar may not be as extensive or as visible.

A full tummy tuck surgery will require two incisions. Your surgeon uses these incisions to remove the surplus fat and skin from your abdomen and to repair any damaged abdominal wall muscle. The first is a horizontal incision, ideally placed below panty line and the second one is placed at the belly button.

Horizontal incision: This incision is used to excise the extra skin from your abdomen. Your plastic surgeon will place it below your panty line – between your navel and pubic mound. Please note that the exact location of the incision will depend on your anatomy and your aesthetic goals. Many plastic surgeons place this incision below the panty line so the scar is less noticeable and visible.

Navel incision: This incision is used to hold the navel securely in its place. The good news is that this incision also helps the surgeon aesthetically shape your belly button. Some surgeons use round shape incision around the belly button. There are many patients who don’t know about this incision type, and when they wear a bikini after the surgery, the navel scar can sometimes be visible. The inverted U is the preferred incision technique of many surgeons in the belly button area. The inverted U incision mimics the look of your actual navel, which result in a natural looking scar that blends with your body.

The horizontal and navel incisions can be placed very carefully, so that the bikini can cover one incision and the navel can camouflage the other. Discuss the post tummy tuck scarring with your plastic surgeon during the initial consultation to put your fears to rest. Ask your surgeon about the incisions techniques and placements he will perform. You must communicate your aesthetic goals to the surgeon up front, and if you hate scars, an honest discussion about scarring will manage expectations and be mutually beneficial.

The good news is that the resulting scars will gradually fade and become less visible over time. Please note that just like in any surgery, the scars will not completely disappear. The extent of scarring will also depend on your skin quality and post-operative care. You should avoid direct sun exposure for the first 4-6 months after the procedure to help minimize your tummy tuck scars.

During the recovery process, be sure to follow your surgeon’s instructions to the letter. Applying unnecessary pressure or force to the incisions or engaging in strenuous activities during the recovery period can result in extensive and unsightly scarring.

Body rejuvenation with the help of liposuction

September 22nd, 2017

Body rejuvenation with the help of liposuctionThe body naturally ages over time, and while there’s not much you can do to stop the aging process, there are some things that you can do to have a fit and youthful looking body a bit longer. A healthy lifestyle that involves regular exercise and a balanced diet can help people achieve a rejuvenated body, but it is not enough to remove all the stubborn fats in the body. There are some patients whose bodies do not look proportionate even with substantial weight loss. This is because there are areas of the body with stubborn fats that no amount of dieting or exercise can easily remove. Surgical procedures can help people to achieve a more contoured body.

Liposuction is one of the most popular and highly effective surgical procedures that can help in body rejuvenation. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is done on both men and women. It is able to target different areas of the body where fat is stored. Such areas include the arms, chin, thighs, abdomen, and back, among others.

The liposuction procedure is an elective surgical procedure and the ideal candidate is one who is generally healthy, psychologically stable and with realistic expectations about the procedure. Initial consultation with the surgeon is done in order to properly assess if a patient can benefit well from a liposuction procedure.

In a liposuction procedure, the excess fats are sucked out of the body. A thin, hollow tube called a cannula that is connected to a suction machine is inserted through small incisions. By using the cannula, it is possible for liposuction to be done on a larger area even if the incisions made are very tiny. To ensure comfort throughout the procedure, patients are sedated or given anesthesia. There are some liposuction techniques that make use of local anesthesia and there are also some that make use of general anesthesia.

To prevent excessive bleeding and control pain, surgeons now use the tumescent technique for liposuction. With this technique, large fluid volumes are injected into the area where the liposuction would be performed. The fluid is made of saline plus local anesthesia and most of it would be sucked out of the body along with the fats.

Can liposuction improve the appearance of the arms?

September 15th, 2017

Can liposuction improve the appearance of the arms?Various areas of the body can be improved through the use of surgery. Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgery that can improve the aesthetics of your body. It is a procedure conducted through the insertion of a small tube called a cannula through a tiny incision. The fat will then be suctioned out of the body in various areas to improve the body’s contour.

The liposuction procedure can be done in different areas of the body. It is normally used in areas with a large amount of fat such as the abdominal area. However, it can also be used in smaller areas like the arms. Arm liposuction is a procedure mostly undergone by women. It is a procedure that can improve the appearance of the arms.

For some women, the fat stored in the arms make the arms appear disproportionate to the body. The excess amount of fat can make the arms look bigger and bulkier. This is a problem that most women would like to remedy. Many women are really conscious about their appearance and their arms are an area of concern.

Through liposuction, the arm can be sculpted to make it appear smaller or thinner. This can greatly boost a woman’s confidence. Liposuction can be used for the removal of excess fat, but it is possible that the skin will sag afterwards. The liposuction procedure only deals with the excess fat and cannot do anything about sagging skin.

For some women, the effect of liposuction would be enough to improve their appearance, even if there is evidence of skin sagging. The arms that have gone through liposuction will look slimmer when the arms are relaxed on the side. The sagging will not be obvious unless a woman positions her arms straight to the sides or in a spread-eagle position. Liposuction does help improve the appearance of the arms even if it can cause some sagging. Women can wear short or sleeveless clothing more comfortably due to the improved appearance of their arms.

Liposuction of the arms can help with the appearance of the arms depending on the case of the patient. A consultation with the surgeon can determine whether or not she will benefit from a liposuction procedure. Surgeons can also explain the procedure in addition to the changes that the patient can expect. In this way, the patient will have all the facts before deciding to undergo the procedure.

Liposuction and sagging skin

July 28th, 2017

Liposuction and sagging skinIn order to deal with excess fat deposits in the body, one can decide to go for a liposuction procedure. Liposuction is considered as a minimally invasive surgery because it doesn’t make a very large incision on the skin and tissues. Only a small incision is necessary for the procedure.

Liposuction is a procedure that deals with the excess fat in different areas of the body. Although it can remove fat, it is not a weight loss solution. It only helps people who have stubborn and excess amounts of fat. When the fat is removed, the skin over that area becomes more elastic because the fat that used to occupy it is now gone. The loose skin may not be noticeable and the procedure still results in a smoothly draped skin over the area.

The skin is naturally elastic and it can tighten or stretch when needed. Different people have different skin elasticity, which is why different results may be seen from one patient to another. The greater the amount of fat removed, the more likely it is for a patient to have loose or sagging skin in that area. If liposuction is done on several small areas only, the skin could loosen up after the liposuction, but it could also tighten over time.

However, there are also cases when the liposuction produces sagging. This is especially true when there is a huge amount of fat that is removed from a specific area in the body. For some, the skin can tighten slightly, but there will still be loose skin. Others might also need additional procedures in order to improve their skin’s condition.

The ability of the skin to stretch and tighten depends on its elasticity. The surgeons can help you determine whether your skin has good elasticity. This is why patients should go for a consultation with a certified and experienced surgeon for their surgery. In this way, surgeons can tell their patients whether the liposuction procedure will match them or if they need another kind of surgery.

The current skin or state of the patient’s body is also a factor on whether or not the skin will sag. In some cases, there is already sagging skin even before the liposuction procedure. This is observed in patients who have already lost a significant amount of weight and are still looking to lose the remaining stubborn fat. Liposuction may not be the best surgical procedure for them.

Liposuction procedures that remove only small amounts of fat in the body can yield great results. The loose skin is not obvious and improves with time. Although many people think that removing the most amount of fat is best, it is sometimes not true. Over liposuction of an area can yield an unpleasant result. Liposuction helps sculpt the body by removing fat. It is therefore important to make sure that the surgeon you work with has a lot of experience and is certified to do the procedure.
