Why tummy tuck?
Tummy tuck, or mini tummy tuck is usually done based on the strength of the muscle wall. Often when the muscle wall is “loose” due to factors like pregnancy, the muscle wall requires repair, hence, tummy tuck is done.
How is tummy tuck done?Incision is made along the line of a typical C-section scar and depending on how much skin needs to be removed, the length of the incision line varies. It can now be performed as a day surgery procedure with stronger painkillers and better anesthesia. However, admission post-operative can still be arranged.
What to expect for the procedure?Most abdominoplasties requires a few weeks to fully recover, on average; it takes about *2 to 3 weeks. However, physical workouts should only be done after 1 month to avoid any post-procedure complications caused by vigorous movements and activities.
Pressure garments are also advisable to be worn for the at least six weeks to fully optimize the desired body contour.
