How much time does tummy tuck surgery take and what is the downtime associated with it?

Doctor use different kinds of tummy tuck procedures, depending on your present condition and what you hope to achieve post surgery.

  • Endoscopic tummy tuck – this is meant for those who have a slightly protruding tummy, but it does not remove sagging skin. In fact, it is meant for people who have good skin elasticity and, during the procedure, the surgeon using endoscopes tightens the abdominal muscles and even uses liposuction to remove excess fat. Recovery can take as little as a week for this.
  • Mini tummy tuck – this uses a single incision and is suitable for those who have some sagging skin and just want a flatter tummy.
  • Abdominoplasty – this is full-blown surgery and will remove excess skin, tighten muscles and give you a flat tummy. This is particularly suitable for those who have excess skin and loose muscles post delivery or after having lost a great deal of weight. The incisions here are made from hip to hip and this may also be combined with liposuction. Recovery will take much longer.
  • Extended tummy tuck – this is bigger surgery than a full abdominoplasty as it goes up to the waist, removing love handles as well.

You may require as little as a week of recovery time for the endoscopic procedure to as much as two weeks or more for the more extensive ones. You will have bandages and drains and need to wear compression garments to promote healing and give support.
