Stomach tucks are a more drastic way of removing fat from your body than methods such as liposuction and involves an operation that means cutting out the surplus. It is designed to solve the problem of stubborn, unmovable rolls of fat around your stomach. Without the time to spend five hours a day with a personal fitness trainer, most of us grow to accept our spare tyre, even if we`re not really happy about it. But excess fat is relatively easy to get rid of via an operation.
The abdominal muscles are tightened and the surplus skin that is stretched removed along with a certain amount of fat. There is a possibility that, even after recovery, you could experience numbness around the scar. Complete recovery could take up to six months although it could be quicker two months is the minimum recovery period you should expect. However, the scar will take around a year to fade.
Cosmetic Surgery for Beautiful Eyes
The eyes are key to your appearance. Ageing and/or heredity often cause eye contours that make people look permanently tired. Under-eye bags can be removed at any age, while surgery for lines, hoods or stretching and sagging is usually undertaken in the late 30s or early 40s.
Incisions are actually made inside the lower eyelids or in the creases or lower lash lines to avoid any noticeable scarring. And like all operations, these incisions are carried out under anaesthesia and you will feel no pain. But afterwards, you may have the discomfort during the healing process. Swelling, bruising and watery eyes may persist for a few days. Some people have the operation as a part of a facelift, and creaseless eyes that are free from bags, look younger and larger. It takes six to eight weeks to see the finished result and the lines where the incisions were made can remain pink during that time.
You may get some blurring in vision during the first few days after surgery. But this should quickly return to normal. The same applies for watery eyes and bruising.
The medical term for tummy tuck is abdominoplasty. After weight loss or pregnancy, many people are left with excess fat and skin of the abdomen as well as weakened muscles of the abdominal wall. If a small pouch of extra fat exists in the lower abdomen or flanks and the area has good skin tone, liposuction would be a good choice for correction. If fat, skin, and muscle need to be corrected, Tummy tuck would give the best result. This procedure involves lifting the loose abdominal skin, tightening the muscles and removing the excess skin and fat. This creates a flat belly and a tighter waistline.
While tummy tuck can yield very dramatic changes, it leaves a scar around the belly button and another one horizontally above the pubic hair. A patient considering this procedure should consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon. While liposuction leaves only a small puncture wound, a mini tummy tuck leaves a scar above the pubis. Tummy tuck can be done in 1-2 hours and you need a week for recovering. Strenuous abdominal exercise may be resumed in 3-4 weeks, after consulting the surgeon.
