Tummy tucks

Tummy tucks

Aging, weight loss, and childbirth can all contribute to sagging skin around the abdomen, which may make you feel out of shape or unattractive. Additionally, diet and exercise rarely correct skin laxity on their own. That’s why many patients resort to tummy tuck surgery to tighten the skin, reduce excess fat and tighten abdominal muscles.

Receiving a Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure can help you accomplish many of the aesthetic benefits that you may not be able to achieve without surgery. Although you may eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, excess skin and fat can line the abdominal region and interfere with that flat midsection you’re working hard to achieve. At Meddistant, we help you find an abdominoplasty procedure that fits your exact needs without breaking the bank. Our high-quality network of hospitals and clinics around the world are vetted to the highest quality standards set by ISO and JCI assurance organizations.

Your candidacy for tummy tuck surgery

A tummy tuck is the best route if you have been unable to eliminate excess skin and fat from diet and exercise alone. You may have recently lost a significant amount of weight, experienced skin damaged by natural aging, or gone through one or more pregnancies that have left your abdominal region with stretched skin and weakened muscles.

Uncovering the results of your abdominoplasty

An abdominoplasty does require some downtime before anticipated results start to show. You will have limited mobility for the first few days, and we encourage you to minimize your activity for one or two weeks after surgery.

Certified doctors will make sure that you have a thorough understanding of your recovery instructions once the healing process begins. Directions may include specific care for surgical drains, dosages for oral medications and best practices for preventing infection. You will also come in for follow-up appointments where we can assess the progress of your recovery and make any suggestions for quicker healing.

Because every individual receives surgery based on specific need, the time it takes to recover fully varies from person to person. You will also notice at this time that your profile looks and feels slimmer.
