Sagging in the abdominal region after birth and as a result of rapid weight gain and loss can disturb women.
In this case, patients can regain their old appearance with a tummy tuck operation. Although women usually apply for this surgery, men also request this surgery from time to time with similar complaints.
How is Mini Tummy Tuck Operation Performed?
Mini tummy tuck operation is an operation performed under general anesthesia. In particular, there is an incision that connects both hip bones with the incision we call cesarean section from the bottom. Through this incision, the abdominal skin tissue is removed together with the subcutaneous tissues. After the necessary stretching process is completed, the excess skin and subcutaneous tissues are removed from the environment and the surgery is terminated with the suture method.
In order to prevent any bleeding or any fluid accumulation under the skin during the surgery, those fluids are removed from the environment with the help of tiny hoses called drains.
The early postoperative period is very important in patients who have undergone tummy tuck operation. If there is a rapid return to normal physical activity during this period, significant problems may arise in the wound area of the patients. For this reason, it is important for patients not to be too steep, especially when walking and walk slightly bent forward. You can start working 1 week after the operation. A corset should be worn for at least 3 weeks. Continuous walking speeds up the healing process.
