Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty)

What is Tummy tuck?

tummy tuck Lithuania

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a frequently performed surgical procedure to remove excess skin and part of unwanted fat from the abdomen. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, which means that a patient won’t feel any discomfort during the surgery. In order to remove loose skin and fat, a surgeon makes an approximately fifteen centimetre long incision that goes across the lower part of the belly. It is done beneath the bikini line, so after scars have healed they are barely visible. To achieve more satisfying results the surgeon removes excess fat tissue and, what is especially important for weight loss patients and mothers, performs tightening of the abdominal muscles. Subsequently, the surgeon closes the incision and applies wound dressings, bandages and a compressive garment, which is necessary for the patient’s recovery. This procedure is considered to be low-risk; however, possible complications have to be evaluated individually.

Types of a tummy tuck

To satisfy each patient’s needs we offer four different types of abdominoplasties:

Drainless tummy tuck 

The drainless tummy tuck surgery is getting more popular because it speeds up the recovery time and thus allows the patient to get back to the active life more quickly. Drainless abdominoplasty differs from regular abdominoplasty as the surgeon will use progressive tension or layered suturing technique instead of just suturing the incision in the lower abdomen. By using the layered suturing technique, the skin is neatly attached to the abdominal muscles and therefore there is no space for the serous fluid to accumulate and no drains are needed for the recovery. Our clinic performs both – drain and drainless tummy tuck.

Who is a suitable candidate for a tummy tuck?

Eligible patients would not plan to have any more children and their BMI (Body Mass Index) should be up to about 27. The abdominoplasty would work best for someone who is within a 10 percent range of their perfect weight. The patient should also have enough loose skin in order not to put too much tension on the surgical suture. The patient should be able to tolerate anaesthesia and have an overall good health as well as good eating habits as it is crucial for the successful healing of the wounds.

When is the tummy tuck recommended with other surgeries?

Abdominoplasty can be combined with other procedures, of which the most popular include liposuctionthigh lift, and breast enhancement. Advantages of the combined procedures include greater patient satisfaction, convenience, and a shorter recovery period compared to performing surgeries separately. It is a way to save patient’s travel time and expenses as well.

  • A procedure that is usually performed in conjunction with the tummy tuck is liposuction. During the lipoabdominoplasty, the tummy tuck is supplemented by liposuction, removal of undesired fat tissue. This might be a great solution for patients who struggle to lose fat from certain areas of the body, like abdomen or flanks. This procedure highly increases patient’s satisfaction, as it contours the body even more than the regular tummy tuck would.
  • A thigh lift is recommended for patients who are unhappy with excess fat and skin in the thigh area. After combining thigh lift with a tummy tuck or liposuction the patient can expect to have an even more improved appearance of the figure.
  • One of the most popular procedures to be combined with the tummy tuck is breast surgery, this includes both breast lifting and reduction. It is recommended for women who want to re-contour their breasts after having children and breastfeeding.

A combined surgery called mommy makeover is a popular procedure that usually combines abdominoplasty, liposuction, and a breast enhancement. This is of great advantage for those women, who wish to have their pre-baby figure back relatively quickly.

Is the tummy tuck safe?

Although the tummy tuck is not considered a high-risk surgery, there are still chances of possible complications. In order to have realistic expectations, one has to be informed about the possible adverse effects of the surgery. The most frequent complications include haematoma, seroma, venous thromboembolism, and wound infection. They are discussed in more detail below.

It is worth noting that complication rates vary among patients and are more prevalent in high-risk patients (obese patients, long-term smokers or patients who have previously had abdominal surgery). Each patient case is different and has to be discussed personally before the procedure.

Preparing for the surgery

To begin with, the patient has to schedule a consultation with the surgeon. The surgeon will examine patient’s general health, prepare an individual treatment plan, and evaluate any possible risks.

Bear in mind that the patient might be asked to perform any necessary lab tests, including blood work, urine test, ECG (electrocardiogram), X-rays, or others.

The surgeon will also discuss patient’s previous medical history, any ongoing diseases.

It is also important to prepare mentally as well as physically. It is not uncommon to feel uncomfortable when thinking about upcoming surgery. To make the procedure and hospital stay a pleasant experience, patients might ask someone close to them to assist them during time of recovery.

Patients are advised to stop smoking and avoid consuming excessive amounts of alcohol approximately one month before surgery.

 It would also be beneficial to ensure a well-balanced diet and to exercise regularly in order to speed up wound healing.

Recovering from the surgery

After a tummy tuck, the surgeon will apply special tape and a compressive garment, which is also known as a binder. The binder has got a very tight fit and it aids in wound healing, prevents seroma formation, and enhances blood circulation. It is advised to wear the compression garment all the time (except when showering) and to refrain from active workout regime for the first 8 weeks.
