This is carried out using several surgical procedural methods, the end result of which it stiffens up the muscles at the abdominal wall. Patients who experience excessive muscles at the abdomen, women who suffer from loose tissues after pregnancy or heavy weight people who lose weight drastically often opt for Abdominoplasty. Tummy tuck is a form of cosmetic surgery which helps to hold the muscles firmly with the human body.

Abdominoplasty is broadly classified into complete and partial surgery. In complete Tummy tuck the incision made is larger in area and covers the major part of the abdomen and the skin is detached from the abdomen whereas partial abdominoplasty, the incision made covers only the lower abdomen and the detachment of skin is limited. There are striking biological differences between men and women who undergo tummy tuck due to their physical nature and due to pregnancy factors in case of females.

Both the sexes desire a flat and stiff abdomen, but for woman, who are about to get pregnant it is advisable to undergo abdominoplasty only after a certain period of time. This period is determined by several factors like after attaining considerable weight loss, completion of childbearing years (the best age for childbearing years is 20 to 35 years), etc.

Post Abdominoplasty – tummy tuck before and after

Just after the surgery is over, you’ll experience some swelling, numbness, pain and discomfort in and around the abdominal area for which you’ll be prescribed medication.

After tummy tuck please note that :

  • Bandages are generally removed in 1-4 days.
  • The surface stitches are usually removed in 5-7 days.
  • Drains might be placed in your body during surgery to avoid any excess fluid collecting under your skin.
  • These are removed between 2 days to 2 weeks post surgery.
  • You might have to wear a garment to compress and bind the tummy to aid in healing and to decrease the amount of swelling that takes place.
  • You would also be advised to wear anti-thrombosis elasticized stockings to decrease any blood clot risks in the legs.

It’s important that you religiously follow the instructions given by your surgeon even after you have been discharged from the hospital, especially guidelines regarding changing surgical dressing, bathing, walking etc. Initially, you need to avoid bending, stretching and any strenuous work to help heal the stitches quickly without undue strain. But depending on how soon you recover, you can begin with a non-strenuous light exercise regime pre-approved by your physician since that would help to minimize swelling, aid quicker healing and even prevent thrombosis. In fact, you’ll be advised to start walking as soon as possible following Abdominoplasty to encourage blood circulation. Just make sure you follow the guidelines of your surgeon to avoid any risks and complications. How soon you recover will also depend on your general health before the surgery took place.

Depending on extent of surgery i.e. whether it’s a mini tummy tuck or complete abdominoplasty, and whether it is a stand-alone surgery or you have combined it with any other procedure like liposuction, you might be discharged from the hospital may be in a day or in several days. Usually, it takes 1-2 days after Abdominoplasty. If you reside locally, you can take a week off and recover at home. Alternatively, you can stay back and recover at the hospital, ask a friend or family member or hire a nurse till you feel okay on your own.
