What happens during Tummy Tuck/Abdominoplasty surgery?
The operation can take between 2-4 hours under general anesthesia, depending on the complexity of the case.
Abdominoplasty consists of upper abdomen liposuction, around the navel and flanks, while removing sub umbilical panicle and moving the navel to a new location, thus being removed also the stretch marks situated throughout the sub-umbilical area.
This type of surgery will leave a visible scar with the form of a continuous line from one hip to another. The scar is located at the base of the pubic area and can be easily masked by underwear.
At OminiClinic, Tummy Tuck/Abdominoplasty includes liposuction of fat using the BodyTite technique for extra firmness and tightening of the skin.
Waistline looks much thinner and final results are much better than the standard procedure.
After surgery, you will recover in the dedicated reserves of the clinic and you will remain overnight for monitoring, being able to go home the next day.
You will be required to wear an abdominal compression corset for 3 weeks and antithrombotic compression stockings that cover the period of rest. Lymphatic drainage massage is recommended after 2 weeks and mild medical gymnastics to tone the abdominal muscles.
The stitches are removed after 14 days. Scars have a period of growth of up to 6-8 weeks during which they become purple. Later, after approximately a year, they will fade and become white, easily hidden under the underwear line. You will be able to resume daily activities partially after 2 weeks and completely after 6 weeks.
