Tummy tuck surgery
Tummy tuck surgery also known as abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure primarily done to make the abdomen firm, thinner and is also utilised to eliminate general abdominal scars and stretch marks.
It is also done to treat diastasis recti— an abdominal separation which broadens up the gap between abdominal sections.
• You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
• You have realistic expectations
• You are a non-smoker
• You are bothered by the appearance of your abdomen
The results of abdominoplasty will depend on the type performed, but you should expect to have a firmer thinner abdomen.
You will be provided a post-operation plan to ensure optimal recovery, which must be followed for six weeks. During the hospital period, you shall be given the blood-thinning injections or medicines to eradicate the risk of clotting of any sort. You should avoid strenuous activity that might put pressure on stitches for at least 10 to 12 weeks.
360 lipo, as the name implies, applies an “all-around” approach to the typical liposuction procedure. 360-degree liposuction (also known as “circumferential” liposuction) applies the same techniques for fat removal as traditional liposuction but addresses the entire midsection (front, side, back) in one procedural setting.
Typically, traditional liposuction focuses on only one area of the body at a time—focusing exclusively on the abdomen, on the hips, or elsewhere on the body per procedure. Traditional liposuction is highly targeted and does not extend beyond the designated area.
Lipo 360, on the other hand, focuses on the entire midsection in one procedure. Usually, Lipo 360 includes fat removal in the abdomen, the lateral and posterior waist, the hips, and the back bra roll. In other words, the treatment “wraps” around the entire mid-section without skipping distinct areas in the process.
In general, clients should expect a few weeks of healing time for the surgical incisions to heal completely after the Lipo 360 procedure, followed by a few weeks to a few months of minor inflammation at the procedure site. As this inflammation heals, the final contours will be revealed showing the full results of your Lipo 360 procedure.
Just as with traditional liposuction, it is important to understand who may be the right fit for Lipo 360 and what the potential risks may be before moving forward with the procedure yourself.
The same individuals who are good candidates for traditional liposuction are also likely to be good candidates for Lipo 360. These individuals should be:
• At or near their ideal weight (within 30%)
• Body mass index (BMI) of less than 42
• Not seeking overall weight loss — wants highly targeted fat loss
• In good overall health
The good news is that virtually anyone with unwanted fat can benefit from liposuction, and Lipo 360 can be a reliable choice for anyone focused on shaping their entire midsection in one procedure.
