ABDOMINOPLASTY TO RESTORE OVERSTRETCHED SKIN
|TUMMY TUCK TIGHTENS LOOSE MUSCLES AND REMOVES EXCESS SKIN AND FAT|
Tummy Tuck |
A Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is an ideal procedure that addresses a problem area for patients who have protruding abdominal skin caused by overstretched muscles resulting from dramatic weight loss, age and pregnancy.
There are several tummy tuck techniques used to restore the weakened or separated muscles in symmetrical alignment with your overall body size and desired outcomes, with the end results creating an abdominal profile that flattens the stomach and restores the waistline.
Incisional scarring will be positioned discreetly across the bikini line and a hole created for the newly-positioned navel, however, the scarring will begin to lighten over time and its size will vary with each patient.
Our laser clinic also includes a complimentary post-recovery CARE program which includes LED Light Therapy [which reduces swelling and accelerates the healing of surgical scarring], and Fractional Laser Resurfacing [which minimises scarring and triggers collagen production]. We also recommend three additional Broadband Light [BBL] treatments for optimal results.
DOWNTIME: Overnight surgery. RECOVERY TIME: Between two to three weeks for the wound to heal and over three months before patients resume any heavy lifting. Patients can expect temporary pain, swelling, bruising, soreness and numbness during the recovery process, however, pain medication can be initially prescribed.
Dr Chang will continue to monitor the recovery progress and reapply any bandages to your incisions. A compression garment will be worn to minimise swelling and to support your abdomen for optimal results during your recovery for up to six weeks.
