Preventing infection after a tummy tuck

April 21st, 2017

Preventing infection after a tummy tuckA tummy tuck surgery is a procedure that helps remove the excess skin and fat in the stomach. It is a procedure that can help patients further appreciate the type of body they have achieved through proper diet and exercise. Like any medical procedure, there are risks involved in a tummy tuck surgery. One of the possible complications is infection.

An infection can be caused by different bacteria that can enter the body. While there are natural bacteria inside the body, external bacteria can enter from the openings or incisions created during surgery. An infection should be treated with antibiotics as soon as possible, otherwise it can lead to death.

Many surgeons will prescribe pre-operative antibiotics, wherein patients would be required to take antibiotics prior to surgery to help prepare the body against any bacterial contamination that may occur. As there are a number of different antibiotics available, doctors must ensure that the patient is not allergic to these medications to avoid complications.

An infection can occur on the suture site of the tummy tuck surgery. Usual symptoms indicating an infection include abscess, fever, pain, or redness on the incision site. Even if the patient is already taking antibiotics, surgeons must assess the abscess to determine if additional medication needs to be prescribed or further procedures need to be done.

Infection brought about by bacteria such as the Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) is a more dangerous kind of infection that can occur in patients who have undergone surgery. These types of bacteria are resistant to first generation antibiotics, requiring stronger medication in order to be treated. Patients who have a history of MRSA infection are given this medication during surgery in order to prevent the infection from recurring.

Infection after a tummy tuck surgery can also occur as a result of using non-sterile tools during surgery. Certified, experienced surgeons strictly work in a germ-free environment, and only unprofessional ones (such as those that offer their services at a cheap price) would do so otherwise. It is best to be careful in selecting the right surgeon in order to ensure your own safety.

Swollen abdomen after a tummy tuck

April 14th, 2017

Swollen abdomen after tummy tuckWhen there are excess skin and fat in the abdominal area, a tummy tuck procedure can be suggested by surgeons in order to make the stomach look firmer. A tummy tuck is a major procedure and may take a long recovery time for patients.

Like with any medical procedure, the body is at risk of developing complications after surgery. A swollen abdomen is a common complication after undergoing a tummy tuck. The blood supply and drainage functions of the body become disrupted from the removal of skin and fat, affecting tissues in the process.

Having a swollen abdomen is possible for different reasons. The bloated sensation that patients feel may be a side-effect of different medications used during surgery. This kind of swelling is usually resolved after a couple of weeks.

The appearance of a swollen abdomen may be due to the accumulation of the fluid inside the body. It is normal for the body to develop fluids during the healing process. Because tissues are cut in some areas, fluid can accumulate and not drain, especially in the incision area as the scar formed stops the fluid from draining. Minor fluid accumulation usually goes away on its own, however large fluid accumulation requires draining via aspiration or drain tubes.

Another cause of the swelling may be due to the muscles in the abdomen itself. As the body heals, it will take time for the abdominal muscles to adjust and relax to the new shape of the body.

The swelling period after a tummy tuck surgery varies on a case-to-case basis as patients heal differently. The swelling is a part of the healing process and will eventually go away as the body repairs the damaged areas. Proper nutrition will also aid in the recovery process.

As a swollen abdomen can stretch the stomach, wearing compression garments help to prevent extensive scarring. These compression garments can be worn after surgery, but doctors must ensure that the garments are worn properly. Too much compression can limit or stop blood flow to the area, resulting in tissue death.

When to seek help after liposuction

April 11th, 2017

When to seek help after liposuctionLiposuction is a common cosmetic surgery performed in many places all over the world. It deals with the subcutaneous fat in the body and surgically removes them by sucking them out. This is done through a tube called a cannula that leaves only a small incision mark on the body. It is usually an outpatient procedure and patients are expected to fully recover at home. The healing period depends on how extensive the procedure is.

The first thing that patients should know is what to expect after the procedure. This way, they can assess if the side effects they are feeling are normal or otherwise need medical attention. Patients must also follow their doctor’s postoperative instructions to avoid possible complications.

After the procedure, it is natural to feel pain around the surgical site. Fluid accumulation and swelling is possible due to the fat cells that have been removed. If the accumulation is large, draining may be required. Otherwise, the swelling will subside on its own.

On the other hand, if there are signs of infection, pain in the legs, bleeding, as well as difficulty breathing, patients should call their doctor immediately. If an infection reaches the bloodstream it can spread to other parts of the body, leading to more dangerous complications and possibly death. High fever, redness, pain, and increased swelling are common indicators of an infection.

Patients who feel pain in their legs or calves may have formed a clot called deep vein thrombosis. This can develop if the patient doesn’t move much after surgery. To ensure proper circulation, patients must walk regularly to avoid possible fatal complications such as a pulmonary embolus, wherein the clot migrates to the lungs.

It is important for patients who have undergone liposuction to keep a close eye on their bodies and to be sensitive to what they are experiencing. It is imperative to allow the body to fully heal before doing strenuous exercises to ensure safe recovery. While liposuction is a procedure that leaves few marks on the outside, the body must still heal properly from the inside.

Numbness of the abdomen after a tummy tuck

March 15th, 2017

Numbness Of The Abdomen After A Tummy Tuck

 

If you have a tummy tuck, you will notice that your abdomen feels numb after the procedure. For those who are still considering a tummy tuck, then you need to understand that your abdomen will be numb and will take months to recover.

You may wonder why a tummy tuck makes your abdomen numb. The reason for this is during a tummy tuck procedure, the surgeon has to make a cut in the lower abdomen and then lift the skin from the abdomen. When the skin is lifted, it essentially causes the nerves to separate. This causes the numbness because if you look at the anatomy of the abdomen, the nerves that supply sensation to the abdomen comes from the top and also through the muscles of the abdomen, and then they go up towards the skin. So when the surgeon makes the incision, these nerves that supply sensation to the abdomen, particularly in the lower half, are damaged. This is inevitable because the nerves are too small for the surgeon to see and avoid slicing through. Thus, sensation of the abdomen will be compromised. Consequently, you have to be careful after a tummy tuck because you may not even realize if you are injured in that area.

With that said, you will eventually regain back the feeling in your surgical area because the nerves will regenerate. Patients recover sensation after surgery, but there might be small areas in your abdomen that will have complete loss of sensation permanently.

It takes months for the numbness to subside because nerves grow about an inch per month. So imagine that the incision the distance to the area that is numb is 6 inches long, then it is going to take 6 months for that particular area to regain the sensation.

Having loss of sensation in the abdomen after surgery is normal and it is something that you need to expect. You just have to be patient. However, you should also be aware that in some cases, patients never gain back sensation in certain areas.

What procedures do I need to get an hourglass shape?

March 14th, 2017


What procedures do I need to get an hourglass shapeIf you do not have a natural hourglass shape, there are different procedures that can provide you with this unique sexy shape. Before you decide which procedure you want, there are certain things we need to determine before your surgery:

 

  1. Do you have excess skin in your belly?

  2. Is your skin very tight?

  3. Do you want to have a buttock shape at the same time?

  4. How much fat to you have?

  5. Do you want to have breast surgery combined with an hourglass surgery?

For example, if you have babies, you will most likely have excess skin, which is why a tummy tuck would be ideal for you. This procedure is also suggested for those who have a square shape because it will give you a smaller midsection. The hourglass tummy tuck involves the removal of excess skin and the tightening of the muscles combine with liposuction and fat transfer. Fat is transferred to the hips for a nice hourglass shape.

Liposuction is suggested for women who have excess fat in certain areas. The procedure is beneficial for you because your skin will look nice afterwards. Furthermore, you will have an hourglass shape as your surgeon strategically transfers fat to your hips, making you shapelier.

On the other hand, if your main concern is enhancing your buttocks, then the hourglass buttock augmentation will be a more suitable option for you. With this procedure, liposuction is performed on the back, abdomen, flanks, sides, and thighs. Once this is done, the fat is transferred to the buttock and hips. This is the difference between the hourglass buttock augmentation and the Brazilian buttock augmentation, which does not include hip.

In case you do not have enough fat for your buttocks, your alternative is the hourglass butt implant procedure. In this procedure, I essentially insert a buttock implant, do liposuction, put fat on the buttock and the hip, thus giving you a nice shape.

For some, one procedure is not enough to give them the hourglass shape because they are unhappy with the upper section of their body. Fortunately, you can combine any of the breast surgical procedures with the aforementioned procedures. In other words, you can get a breast augmentation combined with a tummy tuck, breast augmentation with the hourglass hip procedure, or breast augmentation with hourglass butt implant, etc.

When you come to my clinic, we will discuss your concerns and what you want to have. I will then suggest what hourglass procedure is more suitable for you based on your expectations, desires, amount of fat, anatomy, and skin condition, among other things.
