What is Tummy Tuck?
Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is often recommended for reducing stretch marks and removing droopy skin resulting from child birth. Surgery is performed with an incision under the abdomen, at the ‘bikini line.’ Fat and excess skin is removed via lipo, then muscle tissue is pulled and tightened. Incision scar can remain after the procedure, but it is the most effective option for body contour.
Appropriate for those who
- In case of average to intense obesity
- In case of drooping abdomen from loss of elasticity
- Drooping abdomen and stretch marks after birth
- Drooping abdomen from relaxation of muscle tissue
- Loss of elasticity recovery from intense weight control
- Desire to refine skin after liposuction
Tummy Tucks Surgeries
Principle of liposuction
This is the most general tummy tuck surgery which cuts the lower abdomen. The scar remains between the right and left the pelvic bones and is longer than a C-section scar.
Mini Tummy tuck
This is an effective way to get rid of excessive fat of the lower belly. Compared to general tummy tucks, the incision line is shorter, which allows the belly button to remain in place. The scar is similar to that of a C-section.
Extended Tummy Tuck
This way is the most effective method which gets rid of the overall fat on your belly. It removes droopy or saggy skin and rough skin on the waist and side. It leaves a long scar but can be hidden under your underwear. This extended tummy tuck enhance your abdominal muscle and improves the body contour of the whole belly.
Circumferential Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck area removes the entire lower part of your body, belly, side, and even hip. In case of serious weight loss, you need to cut the droopy skin.
Reverse Tummy Tuck
This is for the upper part of the belly, not the lower part. In this case, your skin under the breast is cut and the abdomen skin is pulled.
Tummy Tuck Surgical Processing
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the bumpy, dimpled, cottage cheese-like skin that shows up around the buttocks, abs, and thighs.
Cellulite results from enlarged packets of body fat–deposited deep underneath the skin–that push up against the underlying connective tissue. When the underlying fat cells balloon up they limit the space under the skin, which places a ton of upward pressure on the connective tissue.
That pressure forces the fat right up against the top layers of skin, pushes everything upwards, and creates a visibly dimpled look on the surface. When multiple fat compartments expand, multiple hills pop up, and cellulite spreads across a wider surface area.
- Bruising on surgical area is possible. To prevent bruising, a drain is inserted into the area. A special sponge is used for a week to clean the surgery area.
- Please avoid taking aspirin, anticoagulants, and birth control pills at least 10 days before the operation. These medications can interfere with controlling hemorrhages.
- After fat is removed via ‘cannula,’ the remaining fat may become clumped. As a solution for this, treatment care is provided by our LPG Endermologie and Vella Smooth quipment
- While operation is taking place, water and blood may be removed in addition to the excessive fat. Therefore, adequate nutrition will be replaced via IV.
- For faster recovery and swelling reduction: wearing a compressive garment is strongly recommended. This should be worn at all times for the first month. Then, wear at home or while sleeping for another month.
