¿What is a tummy tuck or abdominal surgery


The surgery of the abdomen, abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is the removal of excess skin of the abdomen or belly. This surgery is complemented by a closure of the abdominal wall, especially in people who have had children or who have had a major abdominal distension. In addition, liposuction can be performed in people who have a lot of fat, to improve the final result.

¿What results can be expected


The search result is a smooth abdomen, although some depend on the constitution of the patient. In a thin person became an absolutely flat stomach, if a patient with a constitution slightly thicker stay according to their constitution but always in harmony with your body, avoiding all the problems that can give a pendulum as brushing or abdominal discomfort. After the intervention ensures that these patients can dress comfortably and aesthetically are comfortable with your body.

¿How long hospitalization is recommended and when you can resume normal activities


We recommend one to two days of hospitalization depending on the surgery that was performed, if a large formal lipectomy is done, I usually recommend two days. If it's a day minilipectomia a serious enough. A resting level, ideally between a week to ten days, depending on the activity undertaken by the patient. To return to sports, I recommend a month of rest.

¿, that type of patient A tummy tuck is performed


This technique is indicated for patients who have excess belly fat and skin hanging them above the pubis, or just have surplus abs folds that do not like. For example in cases of muscular distension after a twin birth that can not be removed nor physical exercise or diet.

¿What type of anesthesia is used


Usually general anesthesia, which provides greater security and peace of the surgeon to work area used. It is a very broad area whereby a local anesthetic or anesthesia from the waist down can give involuntary movements of the patient and hinder the work of the surgeon. However, both local anesthesia and locoregional can be used in small interventions.
