What does tummy tuck surgery involve?

To have a flat tummy you have to undergo the surgery, which does entail some amount of discomfort and pain. However, it is better to bear this for a few days or weeks than carry a bulging tummy for the rest of your life. You can opt for a mini tummy tuck or a traditional one, depending on where and how much your tummy is protruding. A mini tummy tuck is usually performed below the navel, whereas the traditional one goes above as well.

After extensive surgery, you may require that the belly button is repositioned as well. If there are some fat deposits the doctor can probably remove them via liposuction. The skin is cut, the excess skin and tissue removed and the muscles are tightened. The skin is then sutured low down in the pubic area, so that scars are not visible. After tummy tuck surgery in Costa Rica, you are required to wear compression garments for quite some time to expedite healing.
