Tummy Tuck with Prague Beauty

Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck, also called Abdominoplasty - surgery, which is frequently sought out after significant weight loss or pregnancies, is the perfect answer to tightening the abdominal wall muscle. If needed, excess subcutaneous fatty tissue is removed by liposuction. The appearance and functional results of the surgery are very good, although at the cost of scars that are inevitable in order to remove excessive skin. However, scars will fade with time and its quality differs with each individual. Abdominoplasty is not only an aesthetic surgery but it also provides a solution to functional deficiency of the abdominal wall.

A good state of health is required. Abdominoplasty surgery is not recommended when pregnancy is planned. Abdominoplasty is suitable for males, too, who have a marked disposition for slackened abdominal skin.

A Complete (or full) Tummy Tuck Involves

  • An incision is made from hip to hip just above the pubic area.
  • Another incision is made to free the navel from the surrounding skin.
  • The skin is detached from the abdominal wall to reveal the muscles and fascia to be tightened. The muscle fascia wall is tightened with sutures (stitches).
  • The remaining skin and fat are tightened by removing the excess and closing the defect.
  • The old belly button stalk is brought out through a new hole and sutured into place.
  • Liposuction is often used to refine the transition zones of the abdominal sculpture.
  • A dressing and elastic garment are applied and any excess fluid from the site is drained.

What To Expect After The Tummy Tuck Surgery

Normally the stay at the clinic is for 2 days. Then the client recovers at our private apartment for the next 4 days before flying back. The bandage should be changed after one week. Rest is recommended for 2 weeks after the surgery, and the client may get back to his /her full workload after about 2-6 weeks of gradual recovery (depending on you're the type of your work). Avoid sitting in a "crunched position" for ten days after the surgery. You will be shown the correct way to get up and lay down and sitting positions.

The Risks of Tummy Tuck Surgery

Generally, risks are associated with surgery and general anesthetics (e.g. bleeding, infection, nerve damage, unexpected drug reaction, deep venous thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism).

Typical complications are scar infection and fluid collection. In case of any subjective complaints (conspicuous pain, pressure) or any complications (persistent temperature above 38°C, bleeding with the blood soaking the bandage) it is required that the client reports to a GP or contacts us. Tugging and impaired tenderness in the affected areas are common side effects and they will be adjusted in a couple of weeks.

Tummy Tuck Summary

Tummy Tuck Summary
Anaesthesia General
Length of surgery 2 - 3.5 hours
Total length of stay 2 nights at the clinic, 5 nights in the apartment
Discomfort Mild to severe. The tighter your surgeon makes your inner girdle, the greater your discomfort will be. Anticipate 3-8 days of prescription pain medication.
Bruising Does not usually occur but swelling is common and may lasts for several months
Bandages Are removed in 1-4 days
Stitches Are dissolvable
Drains Will be placed at the time of surgery to prevent postoperative fluid collections. They will be removed between 1 - 2 days following surgery.
Special You will be provided with a bathing suit to be used in the initial month after the surgery. Your abdomen will immediately look better in most one-piece bathing suits than it did prior to the surgery.
Back to work In about 7-10 days after the surgery as long as your job requires no lifting or manual labor. If so, wait for 4-6 weeks or get an excuse from your plastic surgeon so that you can be given a non-lifting job during that time.
Driving 2 weeks or after you have stopped taking prescription pain medication
Exercise May be resumed in 4 weeks, swimming in two months
Final result Will be evident after your scar has matured, approximately in one year

Tips and Traps of Tummy Tuck

  • If you would like a tummy tuck, wait until you have had your children. The benefits gained through abdominoplasty may be lost with another pregnancy.
  • If your hips are wide, consider hip liposuction at the same time. Otherwise, tummy tuck alone may cause your hips to look larger.
  • It is important to wear a special compression garment for up to three months - this hastens remission of swelling and increases your comfort after operation. We will give you one but it may be useful to buy another one for changing.
  • Sometimes, the surgeon can recommend having abdominal liposuction in the same session. The decision to do this depends solely on the surgeon, since he can determine the risk factors and recommend the best treatment.
  • If you smoke, have poorly controlled diabetes, or are overweight, you will have a significantly increased risk of complications. We recommend losing weight before undergoing a tummy tuck in order to achieve the best results.
