How Long Does A tummy tuck surgery Lasts for?

    Vizag: People who have excess fat around their abdomen might be working out and following a strict diet, but the results are not effective.

    How is tummy tuck surgery performed?

    The most frequently asked question regarding the tummy tuck surgery is how long the surgery will last for? This depends on what type of results you want and on the size of the tummy. On average, it takes around 1 to 2 hours. Additionally, if the skin to be removed is large, contouring of the hips, and around the thighs is required then it might take 3 to 4 hours. Basically, it depends on every patient’s case and whether you need surgery as in-patient or out-patient. There are three options in which the surgery can be performed.

     

    Patients who need the most correction (fat to be removed is in excess) then complete abdominoplasty is the best option. During the surgery, the incision is made on the lower abdomen and they extend from hip bone to hip bone. After that, the surgeon will manipulate the skin and muscle to give it a more proper shape. In addition to this, incisions are also made around the navel so that excess tissue can be removed from there also. Under the skin drainage tubes are placed and after a few days they are removed once, the surgeon feels the shape is much better.

    • Partial or mini-abdominoplasty

          In partial abdominoplasty, a smaller incision is made. This surgery is performed on patients who have excess fat below the navel area. However, the belly button is not removed in the procedure. In some cases, the surgery is performed with an endoscope. This device is like a long tube and in the end, it has a small camera which shows the picture of inside the abdomen. On average, this procedure takes 2 hours and it also depends on the patient’s case.

    • Circumferential abdominoplasty

          The surgery is performed on patients to treat the back area. This means the patients who have excess fat in the back as well as the abdomen, in that case, this surgery is quite effective. During the surgery, excess fat is removed from the skin which includes the hip and back. No doubt, the surgery helps in improving the shape of the body in three-dimensional.

    No matter which method your doctor will suggest to you, all of them will help you get a better shape. To control pain and discomfort the patient is given general anesthesia. Due to this, the patient is asleep during the entire surgery and he/she will not feel any type of pain. After the surgery, you should not drive on your own and ask someone to take you home. The patient should avoid any type of physical activity that put pressure on the tummy for at least 6 weeks. It is very important that you follow your doctor advice and take the necessary medication on time.
