Ideal Candidate for Tummy Tuck in Colombia

- You do not smoke
- You have realistic expectations
- You are not overweight (i.e. your BMI is <30)
- You are physically healthy and maintain a stable weight
- You are concerned by the feeling that your abdomen has a bad shape
The Surgery and Anesthesia
Through the incision, weakened abdominal muscles are repaired and sutured together and excess fat, tissue and skin are removed through liposuction. A second incision around the navel may be necessary to remove excess skin in the upper abdomen.
Tummy Tuck Incision
A full tummy tuck requires an incision from hipbone to hipbone in the shape of a smile. The shape and length of the incision will be determined by the degree of correction necessary. The incision could be as little as 5 inches (mini tummy tuck) to all the way around (circumferential tummy tuck also known as 360).
Repair of Abdominal Muscles
In some individuals especially those post pregnancies, the rectus abdominis muscle may sit far apart (diastasis or divarication of rectus). This is brought together with permanent sutures during a Tummy tuck. Sometimes, laxity of the lateral abdominal muscles is also present, which can be tightened using permanent sutures for muscle plication. Rarely there is a horizontal excess that contributes to a bulge, this also is strengthened and repaired.
Tummy Tuck Recovery
Following your surgery, dressings are applied to your incisions, and a garment is placed to minimize swelling and to support your abdomen as it heals. Two drainage tubes will be placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect.
You will be placed in a bent position with pillows under your legs to prevent excessive stretching force on your wound. In your accommodation your post care assistant will also teach you how to get out the bed to minimize straining of the abdominal muscles and skin. Your posture will often be hunched over for at least a week, once drainage has stopped (usually 3-5 days), the tubes will be removed.
You may be discharged on the same day or next day, depending on the number and extensiveness of treatment areas. . Adequate postoperative rest to allow healing and minimize complications is essential for the first 5-7 days. It is recommended that you exercise caution with lifting and heavy activities for the first 20 days.Your first postoperative appointment is usually around 3-5 days.
