About the process
Following a massive weight loss, many people experience saggy skin and loose muscle. An extended tummy tuck is an effective procedure for patients who want a tighter body and firm muscles in their body. This procedure is perfect for patients who wants to remove significant amount of excess fat and skin in the buttock, upper hip, stomach, and lower back regions.
What is the Procedure
In an Extended Tummy Tuck, the incision is made in the entire length of the abdomen and extends to the back of the patient’s hips. The surgeon after making the incision tightens the exposed muscles. Thereafter a new navel is created that matches the patient’s new body shape. The procedure is also combined with the liposuction method to achieve the ideal body contour. After excess skin has been removed from the abdomen, buttocks, and back, the opening will be closed with sutures.
Extended Tummy Tuck Post-Operative Care
The extended tummy tuck unlike other Tummy Tuck Surgery is done by making a long, extended incision. Dramatic physical changes take place in the body, therefore the surgeon suggest the patients to stay for at least one day in the hospital . Drainage tubes will be removed from the patient’s body after days of the surgery to prevent accumulation of fluid in the body and for faster healing process.
Swelling and bruising might be experienced by the patient after the surgery. Your surgeon will suggest some pain relief medications to get relief from the bruising. Patients can start with light activity within two weeks of their extended tummy tuck, but consultation with the surgeon is necessary to resume any vigorous physical activity. Surgeons suggest you to avoid taking shower for few days after the Tummy Tuck surgery until the drainage tubes been removed from the incisions.
