Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)

The best candidates for the tummy tuck procedure are men who lost significant amount of weight and were left with excess of skin and fat tissue in the abdominal area which does not respond to diet or exercises. Abdominoplasty surgery abroad in Poland can also reduce scars after other surgeries in the abdominal area.

Tummy tuck may be performed as a full or massive abdominoplasty or as a mini tummy tuck. If necessary, during the same procedure liposuction to abdominal area can be performed.

Full tummy tuck involves surgery around mid and lower stomach together with tightening up the abdominal wall and also new navel placement. So, the scar runs from hip to hip – the incision is made in the pubic area. Whereas in case of mini tummy tuck the incision is shorter (similar to caesarian) and the navel may not be replaced (also recovery time is shorter) – basically mini abdominoplasty is less invasive. Scar after tummy tuck can be easily covered by underwear.

Abdominoplasty is a major and serious procedure. Like each surgery, it carries risks and, in comparison with other cosmetic surgeries, abdominoplasty carries higher risk of complications and longer length of recovery. All pros and cons of the surgery should be discussed by the plastic surgeon with a patient.

The surgery is performed in general anaesthesia, after which a patient is left with drains (after 1-3 days the drains are removed) and a special elastic dressing / garment to wear permanently for 6 weeks.

For the first couple days the abdomen will probably be swollen and bruised, a patient feels some pain and discomfort which can be controlled by painkillers. But it will take a while until a patient will feel like himself again. Recovery is quicker for those patients who were in good shape / exercised their body before the surgery. Basically, exercise helps to heal better and reduce swelling and also lowers the chance of blood clot. Depending on patient condition, length of stay in the clinic should take at least about 3-4 nights after the surgery. Elastic garment should be worn during the first weeks non-stop. In a clinic, you will get instructions how to take care of the incision during the first couple of weeks. Stitches should be removed after 10-14 days. About a week after removal of stitches, it is a good to start treating the incision with ointments that help the scar to flatten out and lighten in colour. A patient should be prepared to take care of a new tummy. For example: during first 3 weeks after the operation a patient cannot do any heavy work, even vacuuming; during 3 months after the surgery sauna, solarium, sunbathing is forbidden, smokers should quit smoking or limit smoking before and after the surgery.

Tummy tuck produces excellent results and in most cases, the results are long-lasting.
