Tummy Tuck in Argentina

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty procedure is achieved in order to give to the stomach a esthetic contour by removing excess fat and skin from the abdomen. The goal is to turn out a flatter and tighter abdomen which may include the tightening of muscles.

Abdominoplasty will not stop you gaining weight in the future and should not be sought as a treatment for weight control.

The Procedure

In order to achieve the maximum tummy tuck result, several different surgical techniques are presented. A suitable technique is selected according to the condition of the patient. Most procedures are carried out by a surgical incision which is made across the lower abdomen right above the pubic area. Following, a second incision is made around the patient's belly button as a means of loosening the adjacent skin. Next, the skin is separated from the wall of the abdomen.

Then, the surgeon pulls the loose abdominal muscles from the left and right flanks and sutures them together. This action concludes with tighter abdominal muscles, forming a firmer, stronger abdominal wall in addition to a smaller waist. Later than the tightening and suturing of the abdominal muscles, excess skin is removed and a new opening is made in the correct position for the belly button.

The incisions are closed with sutures only or combined with staples. finally, medical gauze is placed on the incision area in an effort to maintain the abdominal region clean and free from infection.

Another option different from a full tummy tuck , and considered to deal with problem areas presented below the belly button, is a partial tummy tuck. This procedure, less invasive form of abdominoplasty, is normally performed on an outpatient basis and usually requires a local anesthesia.

Returning to Normal Routine

It is highly recommend that patients begin a program of light exercise following surgery. The motion afforded by this activity will reduce swelling, diminish the possibility of developing blood clots and improve skin tone. Vigorous exercise, such as lifting heavy objects, must be avoided until the surgeon provides his consent to do so. Normally, surgical scars appear to be worse during the first few months following a tummy tuck. It may take up to a year before most scars flatten out and lighten in color. Nevertheless scars are placed in areas that will subsequently be covered by clothes, bathing suits.
