A standard Tummy Tuck involves an incision along the bikini line that extends hip to hip and around the belly button. Extended Tummy Tuck is like the standard Tummy Tuck but the incision extends from the hips to the back. The Extended Tummy Tuck also helps tighten the waistline.
The Fleur-de-Lis tummy tuck technique is named after the shape of the incision used during the procedure, which is like the shape of the French symbol Fleur-de-Lis. The incision is made horizontally along the lower abdomen and vertically up the middle, allowing the surgeon to remove excess skin and fat from both the upper and lower abdomen. One of the advantages of the Fleur-de-Lis tummy tuck technique is that it can provide more dramatic results than traditional tummy tuck procedures. It can help to remove larger amounts of excess skin and fat and create a more defined waistline.
The recovery period after a tummy tuck surgery typically lasts around 4 to 6 weeks. However, it's important to note that full healing and final results may take several months.
Yes, you can still have children after a tummy tuck. However, it's generally recommended to complete your family planning before undergoing the procedure, as future pregnancies can affect the results of the surgery.
