It is a complex surgical procedure considering the abdominal wall reconstruction, which consists of several stages (elimination of skin excess, fat excess and improving the abdominal wall muscles flaccidity) achieving a total abdomen remodeling, waist and body trunk reshape.
Mainly people who undergo this kind of interventions are people with abdominal skin excess due to a massive weight loss after obesity or over weight; or pregnancy, which caused the unpleasant skin flaccidity in the trunk area (abdomen and thorax).
Women with one or more pregnancies are good candidates for a tummy tuck too, since in these cases the skin excess is mainly due to the skin expansion during pregnancy which looks loose after childbirth and it makes the abdomen look bulky; sometimes the abdomen skin expansion also causes the appearance of stretch marks.
Estimated surgery time: 3 to 4 hours.
Estimated recovery initial time: 12 to 14 days of initial recovery.
