Tummy Tuck in Thailand
What is Tummy Tuck?
Tummy Tuck in Thailand or abdominoplasty, can flatten your abdomen by removing loose, excess fat and skin and tightening muscles in the abdominal wall. It can also remove some if not all of the stretch marks in your lower abdomen. It is popular following pregnancy, massive weight loss or whenever a flabby abdomen with weak muscles impairs body contour. Most patients report improved self-esteem as a result of this procedure.
How is the Tummy Tuck procedure performed?
A full Tummy Tuck Thailand requires a horizontally-oriented incision in the area between the pubic hairline and belly button. The shape and length of the incision will be determined by the amount of excess skin. Once the abdominal skin is lifted, the underlying weakened abdominal muscles are repaired. A second incision around the navel may be necessary to remove excess skin in the upper abdomen. The upper abdominal skin is pulled down like a window shade. The excess skin is trimmed and the remaining skin is sutured together. A new opening for the belly button is created. The belly button is popped through to the surface and sutured into position. Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips close the skin incisions.
This surgery usually takes from one to five hours depend on how much fat being remove, your choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
How is aftercare for Tummy Tuck surgery?
You will have to severely limit strenuous activity for at least six weeks. You may need to take up to one month off work after the surgery to ensure proper recovery. Your doctor will advise you on what you need to do or not do.
What is Tummy Tuck recovery?
During your Tummy Tuck in Thailand, dressings or bandages may be applied to your incisions, and you may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling and support your abdomen as it heals following surgery.
Small, thin tubes may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect.
What result can I expect?
Barring another pregnancy or significant weight gain, your results should be permanent, although plastic surgery will not prevent the effects of normal aging. Once the skin is tightened, it will get a little looser as you age, but not much. However, if you gain and then lose a large amount of weight after a tummy tuck, the abdominal skin could stretch out again, negatively impacting the overall contour. Likewise, if you become pregnant your abdomen will loosen again. For this reason, it is best to wait until after you finish having children to undergo a tummy tuck. If you’re planning to lose weight, do it before the surgery.
What do I need to do to prepare for Tummy Tuck surgery?
• If you smoke, your doctor will ask that you quit smoking from at least two weeks before the surgery until two weeks after the surgery. It is not enough to just cut down on smoking. You must stop completely since smoking makes complications more likely and slows healing.
Before getting the surgery, get your home ready. You’ll need:
• Ice packs
• Loose, comfortable clothing that can be put on and off very easily
• Petroleum jelly
• Hand-held shower head and bathroom chair
You’ll also need someone to drive you home after the tummy tuck. If you live alone, you’ll want someone to stay with you for at least the first night. Make a plan for that.
My name is Ashley. I had a Tummy Tuck in Thailand and although the surgery was very costly, it was worth it and couldn’t be more ecstatic at my results.
Before, I came to Thailand I was wondering what procedure should I go for between Liposuction and Tummy Tuck ..
