Types of Tummy Tuck Surgery
There are several types of Tummy Tuck surgery. These procedures include Fleur-de-Lis Tummy Tucks, Mini-tummy tucks, and Extended Tummy Tucks. Learn about them in this article. Then, decide which one is best for you! If you are unsure, consult a plastic surgeon.
Although a Mini-tummy tuck may not be as invasive as a full tummy tuck, it is still a major decision. Depending on your individual circumstances, you may feel both excited and nervous. By preparing properly, the recovery time and postoperative pain can be minimized.
Before scheduling your mini-tummy tuck, you should meet with Ciao Bella Cosmetic Surgery and discuss the goals of your surgery. We will answer your questions and provide you with a written quote for the procedure. If you are satisfied with the quote, you can schedule your appointment and pay in full. You may also be able to get financing if you need it.
The cost of a mini-tummy tuck includes the surgical fee and the facility fee. There may be additional fees for pre-operative physicals and laboratory tests. If you are obese or have loose abdominal muscles, you can have the procedure done to reduce your waist and restore your figure to your ideal size. The surgery may also improve your posture and reduce your risk of stress urinary incontinence.
Fleur-De-Lis Tummy Tucks
The Fleur-De-Lis Tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that can be performed under general anesthesia. During this procedure, incisions are made in two directions. First, they are made near the pubic line, which runs from hip to hip. Then, a horizontal incision is made from the pubic line to just below the horizontal incision. The surgeon then removes excess tissue from each side of the vertical incision and excises excess skin in the area around the horizontal incision. Lastly, the remaining skin is stitched together with monofilament and absorbable barbed sutures.
This type of surgery is best for people who have lost a lot of weight and still have excess skin in the abdomen. The procedure helps remove excess abdominal skin and reshape the body, which can lead to a tighter and firmer appearance.
Extended Tummy Tucks
If you are considering having an Extended Tummy Tuck, there are several steps you need to take before the procedure. Before your surgery, make sure you’re well-rested and avoid strenuous activity for the first couple of days. You’ll also want to prepare a recovery room in your home, with plenty of pillows and blankets, and water and snacks. During your recovery, you should follow your surgeon’s instructions closely.
After your Extended Tummy Tucks, you’ll likely experience some swelling. This is completely normal and will take a few weeks to subside. However, too much swelling can put additional pressure on the wound. To minimize the swelling, you should wear a compression garment for the first few days following your surgery. During the first six to eight weeks, you can resume light exercise and a healthy diet. After that, you can stop wearing the compression garment.
The Extended Tummy Tucks is the most extensive form of tummy tuck surgery. It targets excess skin and fat in the front area of the body and can also tighten the abdominal wall. This type of surgery involves a horizontal incision across the lower belly and down the hips. It may also involve a vertical incision, if needed. The recovery time from an Extended Tummy Tuck can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
