Some clients may lose a few kilos the procedure, Oleg Turkin, MD, a board-certified plastic surgeon at our clinic in Kosice, warns that tummy tucks should be used when a patient is already at his or her ideal weight.

"Tummy tucks is not a weight loss procedure, but rather a contouring procedure," he explains.

On top of that tummy tucks can't address stretch marks, since the abdominal skin is pulled downward, some stretch marks may be moved, lowered, or potentially removed if they are part of the lower excess skin.

Tummy tucks’ types of scars

Your scar size and its location depend on the type of abdominoplasty you undergo. In a traditional tummy tuck, the scar goes from hip to hip DR Turkin will do his best to ensure that the scar is hidden under the bikini line. A scar around the belly button is also necessary as belly button is actually relocated during the procedure.

Clients who need just a small amount of skin to be removed and little muscles tightening, a mini tummy tuck is an option. A very little amount of excess skin is removed and the incision leaves a scar as little as a C-section scar.

Tummy tuck is often aligned with a liposuction as this combination of procedures goes hand-in-hand and ensures the best possible results of the procedure and makes clients satisfied with the results afterwards. However, the possibility of such combination and the likelihood is always consulted in person with your surgeon before the procedure. In some cases the liposuction or fat-to-fat grafts is used to help remodel and contour the area of abdominoplasty.

Tummy tuck aftercare

You will be discharged from the clinic on the second or third day after your tummy tuck. Therefore you will need certain level of assistance at doing everyday routine activities. Such assistance may take up to seven days. General physical ease is recommended and no heavy weight lifts are allowed.

Muscles tightening, excess skin removal, and remaining skin pulled and stretched are the reasons that are significantly responsible for limited movement and cause a kind of bent over position of the client after the tummy tuck.  Various pain levels and back spasms are inevitable and present during the first couple of days after your tummy tuck.

Cleaning the incision with anti-bacterial solution and ATB medication are necessity and help prevent getting the wound infected.

Clients are given a compression garment which must be worn for next six weeks. Such garment helps the healing process and keeps your belly at the right position. Proper diet and food rich in nutrition is a key factor too and makes healing smoother, ensures the best results and keeps you fit. Drinking and smoking is not allowed as these activities are healing stoppers.

Tummy tuck benefits beyond the cosmetic

Benefits of your tummy tuck procedure bring not only the physical approach toward yourself and the public but you will feel a lot more confident in your mind and your “new skin” than ever before.  The procedure can also offer medical benefits as some studies show that tummy tucks may help with urinary incontinence, strength and support your body's core. The abdominal muscles are tightened and this fact results in supporting your body as a whole.

Generally speaking, the first 2 weeks may be physical and emotional demanding, but after a few weeks you will enjoy the results and expectations of your tummy tuck procedure, feel more confident, and look forward to your New look lifestyle.
