Tummy Tuck Surgery Information

A full tummy tuck surgery will take a few hours to perform, but the time it takes to complete the surgical procedure will depend on how much work is being done. A mini tummy tuck surgery will probably take just an hour or two. The tummy tuck surgery can be performed under a general or a local anesthesia. An incision will be made from one hipbone to the other in the area above the pubic region and another one to allow the navel to detach from the surrounding tissue, but the incision size will depend on how much skin needs to be removed. The size of the incision will depend on if the tummy tuck is a mini tummy tuck or a complete/full tummy tuck.

The skin is separated from the abdominal wall and the abdominal muscles are tightened by pulling them closer together and stitching them into that pulled position. By tightening the abdominal muscles it can narrow the waistline even more by resulting in a firmer abdominal wall. The muscles are exposed when the surgeons make a skin flap that is later stretched down with the extra skin removed. Since the location of your belly button is moved during a tummy tuck surgery, a new hole is cut to re-stitch the belly button into place. Tummy tucks are able to remove the effects of pregnancy on the abdomen.

Scars will result from any plastic surgery procedure that involves incisions and a tummy tuck surgery is no different. A scar will result from the tummy tuck that extends across the lower part of the abdomen and in some cases around the belly button. Different people will experience a better healing process and their scars will be less obvious. Either way, every tummy tuck patient should expect to have some type of scar from the surgery, and although scars do fade with time there will always be some remaining marks. The tummy tuck surgeon will do their best to place the incisions as discreetly as possible in order to try to hide them under a bikini.
