A Before and After Look at Tummy Tucks
If you have a protruding abdomen, loose skin as a result of weight loss or childbirth, if despite your best efforts at diet and exercise, you just can't seem to tighten those abs, a tummy tuck may be a good option for you. What can you expect from a tummy tuck, before and after? The process will vary depending on the health of the patient and the type of procedure performed.
In your initial consultation with a surgeon, he or she will sit down and listen to you. It is important for you to be able to explain what you want, and also to understand what procedures the surgeon may recommend. The difference between a full tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck is significant. A mini tummy tuck is more affordable, and might be appropriate for your needs. A reputable surgeon will have tummy tuck before and after photos to show you their work. They will also have references from satisfied customers.
The surgeon will do an examination of your abdominal area to determine what procedure is best for you. Many surgeons will take digital photos during the examination, and will be able to show you on a computer what a tummy tuck before and after would look like for you. You will be asked questions about your general health, as well. It is important to be in good health before your tummy tuck plastic surgery.
After you decided on the proper procedure with your surgeon, your operation will be scheduled and your surgeon will discuss price and financing options, if any exist. On the day of your surgery you will either be given general or local anesthesia prior to the operation. Depending on the type of tummy tuck, you may be admitted overnight to the hospital, but in most cases you will be in a recovery room for several hours before being released. It is important to follow your surgeon's instructions for your tummy tuck, both before and after the surgery, to make sure that your body heals properly.
Before your surgery, be sure to follow instructions about medications, what time you must stop eating and drinking, as well as the activities you should limit. By following your surgeon's instructions, you will greatly increase your chances for a good recovery. With self-care and proper diet and exercise, your tummy tuck should allow you to have that flat, firm stomach you desire for many years to come.
