A Glance At Tummy Tuck In The Philippines

Abs of steel and a flat stomach is something that a lot of people aspire for, and many have succeeded in acquiring this asset through years of hard exercise and a strict diet. However, there are some people who, no matter how much they exercise and eat right, still have excess fat in unseemly areas. This is why more people are turning to cosmetic surgery in the Philippines, opting to get a tummy tuck to get rid of unwanted fats.

But what happens in a tummy tuck exactly? Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that will remove the fat from one’s abdomen and will tighten the stomach by also removing excess skin. The surgeon will make a horizontal incision below the patient’s bikini line so that he can repair abdominal muscles. If there is a lot of excess skin, another incision will be made in the belly button area. The doctor will pull the skin away from the abdominal muscles, extract the fatty tissue, and then suture the muscles, making them tighter. Once the surgeon closes the incisions and bandages them, the patient will be brought to the recovery room. This cosmetic surgery procedure in the Philippines can last about two to five hours.

The post-surgery recovery period can be as short as two weeks or as long as two months, depending on how fast the patient heals and the extent of the tummy tuck. The first week may be quite painful for the patient as the abdomen area will be swollen and tender. Some cosmetic surgeons in the Philippines will advise the patient to do some light exercise, in order to expedite the healing.

A tummy tuck is a major operation and just like other surgeries, there are risks involved. Some of the possible health risks are blood clots, keloids, anesthesia reactions, infection, swelling, and necrosis of the skin. Scars may also form after the wounds have healed. If you are looking to get a tummy tuck in the Philippines, make sure that you consult with a certified cosmetic surgeon first.
