You will be placed under general anesthesia, and sleep through the procedure.
Your surgeon will make the incisions needed for the type of tummy tuck you are having. Excess skin will be removed, abdominal muscles and skin will be tightened. In many cases the navel (belly button) will be repositioned.
You could go home the same day if you have a simple procedure. However, you may need to be admitted for a brief hospital stay for a more extensive procedure.
You can read more about Tummy Tucks at the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
The most common types of tummy tucks are the:
Mini – smallest of the incisions and amount of skin/tissue removal. The belly button may not need to be moved.
Standard – incision is usually between the hip bones
Extended – the incision is across the abdomen, and extends over the hips, to tighten the whole abdominal area more uniformly.
Abdominoplasties take about two to four hours.
There will be some discomfort and pain in the surgical area, low back, and surrounding areas. You are likely to have some swelling, numbness or bruising. You will be fitted with a girdle / compression garment for about a month. The girdle provides support and helps to keep swelling down.
You can return to work in about 2-4 weeks, and get back to low impact exercise in about 4-6 weeks. In about 3 months your results will be more apparent, and final results at 6 months.
