Procedure

Tummy tuck is done under general anaesthesia and takes about 4-5 hours. You would stay at the hospital under medical supervision for 2 to 3 days after the surgery. This is done just to make sure that you are on the right healing path.

A horizontal incision is made just from one hip bone to the other just above the pubic area. Excess fat and skin is removed through this incision and the abdominal muscles are tightened. Stretch marks, which are well below the navel are removed as well. Drainage tubes are inserted to remove any excess fluid.

There can be different types of tummy tuck depending upon the extent of surgery performed:

Mini tummy tuck (Mini Abdominoplasty) – less extensive than tummy tuck and is a good option for those who have loose skin and muscles only below the navel. The incision is smaller than a tummy tuck and the belly button is also not released.

Extended tummy tuck (belt lipectomy) - more extensive than tummy tuck and is a good option for people with loose skin and muscles in the back as well. The incision extends at the back as well, making it a 360 degree incision. Sought by men and women after massive weight loss to remove extra skin from the lower body.

You would stay at the hospital for 2 days after tummy tuck surgery to make sure you are healing well. You would be advised to stay for a week in town after that. So, a total of 10 days are required for you to get tummy surgery tuck in India, recover and fly back to your country.

Recovery & Results

It is normal to feel pain and discomfort for a couple of days after the tummy tuck, which would be controlled with pain medications. You would be advised to walk from the next day of the surgery. This improves blood circulation. You would stay at the hospital under medical supervision for 2 days, after which the drainage tubes would be removed and you would be released from the hospital.
