Abdominplasty (Tummy tuck)

Abdominoplastia (Tummy tuck) Abdominoplasty is a common procedure to remove fat and skin from the abdominal area, tensing the muscles and stretching the skin to give the patient a more svelt figure and better defined abdominal area. This surgical procedure is ideal for people who have stretch marks on their skin.

‘Doctores Triana’ believe that every patient is unique and every case deserves individual attention. With the Abdominoplasty procedure we want to analyze each case and propose an appropriate treatment. For example there may be cases in which it might be more appropriate that we performa a Mini abdominoplasty due to a low degree of flaccidity.

We try to make incisions in the most discrete areas so that the recovery is as fast as possible, depending on each patient’s particular case.
  • Type of treatment: Overnight stay

Post Surgical Care

After the Abdominoplasty operation it is important to take into account the following recommendations:
  • The patient should remain hospitalized for the first day
  • The patient should be accompanied by a friend or family member for the first 48 hours to assist with the patients needs and for company.
  • It is recommended that you use a abdomen support garment.
  • Eat healthy: vegetables, fruit, lean meat and lots of water.
  • It is important that you begin moving around early together with breathing therapy under the guidance of a specialist.
  • For the first week we recommend that you do not walk in a totally stretched upright position.
  • Begin your post surgical treatment after the third day following the procedure; we recommend massage, ultrasound, thermal blanket and laser treatment.
  • The post surgical treatment is highly recommended as an effective way to reduce swelling, shapes the abdomen, and optimizes the outcome of the surgery for a faster and more effective recuperation.
  • The majority of Abdominoplasty patients can return to normal daily activities after 2 weeks, obviously without participating in strenuous activities
  • If you experience muscular pain in the first week after the Abdominoplasty you should take the correct medication as indicated by the doctor to relieve the pain.
  • The stitches can be removed after the second week.
  • You should not smoke or drink alcohol because they are likely to interfere with the healing wound.
  • If you have any concerns it is advisable to seek the advice of your surgeon rather than compare your case with another patient.
  • The recovery period will vary depending on many factors, and may take several weeks to see the final outcome of your Abdominoplasty.
