What is Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck, also known as Abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure where excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen is removed to help restore a flat, more toned and attractive contour to your tummy. Most often tummy tuck and liposuction are considered to be the same, however these are both two different surgeries. Although both help is achieving reduction of fat from the tummy, the major difference between the two surgeries is that tummy tuck also involves removing excess, loose skin from the lower abdomen and tightening of abdominal wall muscles which often becomes loose after pregnancy.

4 Benefits of Tummy Tuck

Pregnancy is most certainly one of the best phases in a women’s life, however it can leave behind stretch marks, loose tummy skin which does not shrink back to its pre-pregnancy state. In spite of the best of care, pregnancy yoga, creams, etc it is impossible to predict how one’s body will go through pregnancy, preventing stretch marks, getting back your well-toned abdomen. In some women, the body gets restored to its pre-pregnancy state within a span of 4-6 months, however in majority it is not possible as the way women heal and recover is also strongly linked to their genetics.

Everyone wants a fitter, tighter and more toned abdomen allowing them to wear the clothes of their choice without worrying about bulges or needing to wear body shapers. Regular exercise, diet and yoga definitely helps in toning and improving the body shape. However, the only treatment to deal with stretch marks, loose hanging skin and stubborn fat is a tummy tuck which can help get rid of these excesses and restore a flatter and better-looking tummy. Here are top 4 benefits of getting a tummy tuck:

  • Helps to get rid of stretch marks
    Stretch marks are created as an aftereffect of stretching the skin. There are various creams and products that are intended to dispose of stretch marks however, none of them are 100% successful. A tummy tuck surgery helps you get rid of stretch marks as this procedure involves removal of loose, excess skin from the lower part of the tummy which is the most common area to get stretch marks after pregnancy.
  • Can treat the abdominal bulge
    A bulge in the abdomen is most frequently a hernia or diastasis which occurs due to loose tone abdominal muscles. Ventral or umbilical hernias and diastasis of recti can be treated along with your abdominoplasty and can help you claim insurance for a part of the surgery. The abdominal muscles are routinely tightened during a tummy tuck to give you a flatter and more toned abdomen.
    Along with providing cosmetic and appearance benefits, a tummy tuck tightens the core abdominal muscles that support the spine which can help in reducing back pain and improves posture.
  • Provides a better belly button
    During the surgery, the surgeon makes a small incision and after removing the excess skin from the affected part the surgeon also adjusts the belly button in order to provide a better look.
  • Get rid of C-section scar
    A tummy tuck scar is a very fine line scar that is planned in a manner such that it stays hidden deep in your undergarments. Any scars in your lower tummy like the C-section scar or stretch marks below your navel are usually removed as a part of your surgery.

What is breast implant surgery?
Breast augmentation also known as mammoplasty is a surgical procedure to change the size and shape of the breast usually by placing breast implants under the chest muscles or breast glands. The commonly used implants are made of cohesive silicone gel which maintains shape and does not rupture easily. One can consider a breast augmentation surgery for personal or medical reasons.
Enhancing self-image is one of them. Other common reasons for breast augmentation are as follows:
– Breast Asymmetry
– Disproportionately Small Breasts.
– Restoring breast fullness after pregnancy or weight loss.
– Mastectomy

What can you expect post breast augmentation?

Most breast augmentation patients are discharged the same evening or the following morning. The patient should focus on plenty of rest for the next 2-3 days until pain free. The ideal time to recover from the breast augmentation surgery is 1 week. Immediately post-surgery it is common to feel tightness and a foreign-body feeling around the breast, however, this feeling disappears as the body accepts it in 4-6 week’s time. It is also common to feel that implant is too big for the chest immediately post-surgery, however as the swelling settles and the implants take their natural position, the chest further shrinks by 10-15% giving you a more exact result by 1-2 months.

What aftercare is necessary for breast augmentation?
As mentioned above, the most patients are discharged the same day or the following day. We follow 24-hour recovery or rapid recovery breast augmentation and hence to speed up the recovery process there are few essential care tips that need to be followed.

1. Sleep
Sleep is an important aspect here not only to heal the body early but also to sleep in the correct direction. It is recommended to sleep on your back during the entire process of recovery. Sleeping sideways is also acceptable for people who are unable to sleep straight. You can sleep on your stomach after 3 months.

2. Exercise
For the first few weeks, patients are advised light activity without lifting of any weights. Full activity and exercises may be resumed after 6 weeks. Activities involving lifting of heavy weight can be resumed after 3 months. Stretching exercises and massage are taught after surgery need to be continued for 3 months post-surgery.

3. Supportive Bra
The breasts need to be supported during the process of healing. Hence, patients are advised to constantly wear a well-fitting sports bra or post-surgical garment for up to 3 months.

4. Avoid Smoking
The patients are advised to stop smoking for atleast 2-3 weeks before and after surgery as it is known to affect healing and delay your recovery post-surgery.
