Exercise, proper diet practices, your lifestyle becoming healthier can prevent you from reaching your dream body. This is especially true for people who have lost serious weight in a short period of time or who have been overweight throughout their lives and have reached their ideal weight.
As part of the most popular body contouring operations, certain examinations are performed before the tummy tuck procedures are performed. You can contact Catch Life Aesthetic, which offers high-quality services with results that aim to increase your self-confidence and self-esteem.
Abdominal Stretching Surgery
Tummy Tuck is one of the most common procedures performed in body contouring surgery. This is because it affects a large part of your body; however, it is most difficult to improve due to many factors such as age, skin density, other current health conditions, or the time it takes your body to reach several goals.
In this case, your surgeon makes a long cut around the belly which extends from opposite points of your hip bone. The skin, tissue and muscles are then repaired or “tightened”to achieve a firmer and flat abdominal area.
There will be a scar from which the cut is made, but let's also note that it will disappear over time. A secondary cut may also be required to remove skin problems in the upper abdomen. The method of treatment depends on the degree of skin laxity, the amount of excess skin, age and other factors.
A single incision can be made along the belly to perform a tummy tuck. For patients with excess weight, another cut may be made on the abdomen.
As with all surgical procedures, taking care of the sutures is the highest priority. Once you have shaped your body, it is strongly recommended that you follow the surgeon's instructions for proper care to the affected areas.
Compression garments are recommended for 6 weeks to speed up the healing process and prevent swelling.
To control the pain, medication may be administered orally or intravenously.
Physical therapy will be applied to gradually strengthen novelties and strengthen the operated areas.
Liposuction may be recommended afterwards for the complete removal of fat deposits.
