Tummy Tuck (adominoplasty)

ALL ABOUT
Tummy Tuck (adomino
plasty)

Tummy tucks, or abdominoplasties, help to remove excess fat and sagging skin around the midsection and lower abdomen. Muscles around the abdominal wall can be tightened to help improve tone and function and can be an option for people experiencing excess fat, skin and sagging despite improving their diet and exercise regimes.

 

The procedure designed to help reduce sagging and loss of firmness brought on by ageing, weight gain or weight loss. A breast lift can help to bring balance to the shape and size of unequal breasts, increase firmness and raise the position of downward pointing nipples.

 

A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areolas and help improve the self-confidence of women who may be dissatisfied or embarrassed by their breasts.

The surgery

Tummy tucks are generally performed under general anesthesia. Where possible, the main incision will be made under the “bikini line” to conceal scars, however, this cannot always be performed. In other instances, incisions are made from hip to hip, above the pubic region.

The skin and fat are lifted from the abdominal muscles and the muscles are then surgically tightened, increasing strength and reshaping the waistline. Excess fat is removed or trimmed and another incision is made to reposition the navel.

If excess skin or fat is mostly below the navel, then a mini-tummy tuck can be performed, where less fat and skin are removed, the navel is not repositioned and the incision is smaller.

Our surgeons are available from the following hospitals for this procedure:

the recovery

After surgery our recovery specialists will given post-op instructions. It is important to follow carefully. You will be provided with a script for medication, which you will need to purchase after surgery and instructions on when to take the medication over the days ahead. You will be discharged from hospital when your companion picks you up from the hospital. All patients must have a companion to stay with them for 72hours following surgery.

The first week after surgery you should stick to gentle day-to-day activities. This includes minimal house duties, no lifting, staying home as much as possible and sleeping in an elevated position. Commence postoperative exercise (instructions given post surgery).

In the second week of recovery try not to raise your blood pressure too much and still sleep in an upright position. Patients will also be required to attend a postoperative appointment at our office in week 2. this will be scheduled prior to surgery.


In week 2 patients may:
  • Commence a light walk
  • Return to work in week 2 if you have an office job with little physical activity
  • Avoid sexual intercourse
  • Start driving provided they are not taking any pain medication. We also recommend waiting 3 days for the medication to be out of your system.
What are the risks ?

All surgery can carry a degree of risk. Beyond the general risks of pain, infection or discomfort around the incisions, specific risks include tiredness, poor circulation in some areas of the skin, differences in abdomen symmetry, discomfort and numbness around the incision sites, the development of seroma/ fluid build up, and/or the development of blood clots in the legs or lung.

If you are concerned about possible complications, be sure to discuss them with your surgeon.
