A tummy tuck is considered one of the most performed cosmetic procedures in the world regardless of the candidate’s ages. A tummy tuck involves the reconstructing of a person’s abdominal area with liposuction and skin lift jobs. Tummy tuck and liposuction are brother procedures and it is almost impossible to see a tummy tuck procedure that if performed without liposuction.
A good tummy tuck procedure requires good skin elasticity. If the skin of a person does not have enough elasticity, the surgeon will probably refuse to perform tummy tuck surgery on her. A standard skin-lift job is done by removing the excess skin on the abdominal area. If the person does not have the required skin elasticity, it will not be possible to remove the excess skin and suture them together.
How They Are Done
A standard tummy tuck procedure stars with local anesthesia. After the initial incisions have done, the patient is given a general anesthetic and the procedure begins. Little liposuction procedures are performed by the plastic surgeon during the tummy tuck. This generally depends on the patient’s preferences. The surgeon and the patient discuss with each other upon how is the abdominal area going to be like.
Based on the previous discussion between the surgeon and the patient, the surgeon builds the abdominal area with these liposuction and skin lift jobs. After the excess skin on the abdominal area has been removed, both sided of the skin are sutured together and the patient is expected to rest in the hospital for two days.
Since tummy tuck involves multiple procedures, the number of possible complications also increases. However, it’s still considered one of the painless and safest procedures ever. If you experience severe swelling, bruising, inflammation, pain or itching, you should immediately consult your doctor for appropriate and prescripted drugs.
