When you have a stomach that protrudes, whether it is a tight paunch or loose and sagging skin and muscles - and you have tried all the possible exercises and workouts to lose belly fat - then it may be time for a tummy tuck in Cebu City. Men often get a paunch over time (also called a beer belly) and women’s bodies change after pregnancy and childbirth and even repeated weight loss cycles.

A tummy tuck can help you surgically remove excess fat and skin and tighten the muscles. Once you get a flat tummy you start looking better in your clothes, whether it a man in a tee or a woman in a swimsuit. With the popular culture stressing on fit and flat bodies, if you cannot get them through diet and exercise then a tummy tuck, also called an abdominoplasty, is the answer.

How long does tummy tuck take and what is the downtime associated with it?

Abdominoplasty is done in various ways. You can get your whole abdomen done where the excess skin is stretched and cut and then sutured. This may also remove stretch marks. If required, fat can be liposcutioned as well. Usually this surgery may call for repositioning of the navel.

Alternatively you can have a partial or mini tummy tuck if you are relatively flat on top and only the skin below the navel is sagging. This is a shorter surgery and recovery is also faster. For the complete tummy tuck, the surgery can take two to five hours (the longer time will be required for liposuction and tightening on muscles). In this case the surgery is done under general anesthesia and you ought to stay at least one night in hospital.

After a full tummy tuck you will need to wear compression garments for five to seven days and will be on bed rest. It may be difficult for you to stand up straight for up to a week so you need to check with the doctor when you will be fit enough to fly back. You can estimate at least two to three weeks off from work and recovery may take several months.
