Tummy tuck (also called abdominoplasty) removes fat and skin around the stomach area for a firmer, smoother silhouette. This is one of the most difficult areas to slim down, despite exercise and proper diet. Even people with a healthy weight can struggle with this so-called belly fat, either because of heredity or the normal body changes after pregnancy. A tummy tuck Singapore doctor can help.
Questions to ask your Tummy Tuck Singapore doctor
At the initial appointment, your doctor will check your medical history. He will order preliminary tests to see if you have any pre-existing conditions that may prevent healing, and also check if your particular case is best addressed by a tummy tuck or other procedures like a vaser liposuction.
This is a good time to ask about what kind of results you can expect, the costs and discomfort, and what medications you may need to take before and after surgery. It’s also important to get an idea of the healing time, given your particular health background, and the extra precautions or assistance you may need until you feel strong enough to resume your daily activities. This will help you plan for the procedure and make the necessary adjustments at work.
Healing and recovery
This procedure can be done at a hospital or a credited surgical facility. Your aesthetic surgeon will insert thin tubes to drain off blood or fluids, and apply dressings. You will be asked to wear a compression garment to control swelling and give your abdomen additional support. He will also issue medicines that can help you heal and prevent infection, and give instructions on how to care for your wound at home. You may need special instructions for bathing and washing the area.
Since this is considered a major surgery, it’s best to have someone drive you home and accompany you at least in the first day you are home.
