Tummy Tuck with Extended (Abdominoplasty)-Extended. GA (PPSI)

Description

Procedure

There are several different tummy tuck techniques. The most common procedure is performed under general anesthesia, called a full tummy tuck. Tummy tuck surgery is also known as abdominoplasty.  It involves removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen. The abdominal wall muscles can be tightened depending on the patient’s needs. Half-moon incisions are made. The length depends on how much skin and fat is removed.

A traditional tummy tuck is best suited for healthy individuals who are fairly physically fit, but are unable to achieve their desired abdominal appearance through diet and exercise. Women whose abdominal skin and muscles have been stretched by pregnancy or further damaged by cesarean sections are good candidates for treatment. Tummy tuck procedures are also excellent for individuals who have experienced dramatic weight loss, but are unhappy with the sagging belly left behind.  Both women and men can be appropriate candidates for tummy tucks.

An extended tummy tuck is usually for obese patients that have a great deal of excess fat and have overhanging skin that extends to the back.

A circumferential tummy tuck is more extensive than a full tummy tuck. It’s usually performed on patients who have lost a great deal of weight (usually after gastric bypass surgery/bariatric surgery) and now have loose, overhanging skin around their entire body.

Length

It takes approximately two to four hours.

Anesthesia

Patients are usually placed under general anesthesia. You can also perform this procedure with a regional block using local anesthetic agents.

Inpatient/Outpatient

Both are possible, but it all depends on the patient’s health and the preference of the doctor.

Possible side effects

Side effects include temporary discomfort, low back pain and swelling, tenderness, soreness, tenderness, and numbness in the abdominal skin.

There are risks

Potential risks include infection, bleeding under the skin flap, at the incision site, and pulmonary embolism (a bloodclot that travels through the lungs). Scarring (keloids), delayed healing or the need to have a second reversionary surgery are also possible.

Recovery

Within two to four weeks, the patient can return to work. After a re-evaluation, the doctor may allow the patient to return to more strenuous activity within four to six weeks. The scars should be flatten and fade in three to one year. Patients will need to wear a body wrap for at least 4 weeks.

Results

The results will last for many years unless the patient becomes pregnant or loses weight.

Cost of Tummy Tuck

Cost of a tummy tuck can vary based on your size, surgeon fees, anesthesia used, inpatient (hospital) or outpatient (day surgery), and package inclusions.  Please ask your consultant for verification on what is/is not included.
