Benefits and Cost of Tummy Tuck Surgery
For people who have experienced significant weight loss with resulting excess fat and sagging skin, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery can help you achieve a flat looking abdomen. A tummy tuck not only removes excess fat and skin, it also helps to restore weakened or separated muscles, resulting in a smooth and firm abdominal profile. This helps patients regain a more youthful appearance.
A Tummy Tuck will help to:
- Correct a protruding stomach that is not consistent with the body’s proportions
- Eliminate skin problems in the skin fold under the abdomen
Improve overall appearance and help clothes fit better
- Remove those areas of fat that simply won’t respond to exercise of diet
- Correct prominent C-section scarring and stretch marks
- Repair diastasis recti
- Repair abdominal muscles that are overly stretched out
During surgery, an incision is made horizontally in the area between the pubic hairline and the belly button. Skin is dissected up to the rib cage, the muscles are tightened and the belly button is repositioned while excess skin is removed. This helps to dramatically improve the appearance and strength of the abdominal area.
After the excess fat and skin are removed, the remaining skin from the upper abdomen is pulled down over the open area to close it. Skin and muscles are tightened as required, and the belly is flatter. Most importantly, Dr. Mihail COJOCARU has developed a drain-free tummy tuck technique, which means no drains are left in the incision after surgery. This means a fast recovery, less discomfort and a lower, thinner scar than with traditional tummy tuck surgery.
Recovery from Tummy Tuck Surgery
Recovery from tummy tuck surgery requires rest and taking it easy. The first two days are the most painful, and after that you’ll notice a dramatic improvement in how you feel. You will need to avoid strenuous physical activity from 4 to 6 weeks. Depending on the surgery, it may take anywhere from several weeks or months to see the final results.You will see Dr. Mihail COJOCARU the day after your surgery, and at specified intervals in the weeks following your surgery. This is done so the doctor can personally monitor your recovery process, and to ensure you have the best results possible.
Cost for Tummy Tuck Surgery
The cost for a tummy tuck at London Lipo Institute begins at 3500 Euro for a basic tummy tuck. Some patients require an extended tummy tuck which is 4900 euro. All our tummy tucks include basic liposuction to help sculpt the abdominal area being repaired. However, if additional lipo is required or requested, additional fees will apply. Most commonly, patients request additional lipo of their love handles or bra rolls. Other common areas of additional lipo include thighs and arms. The fee depends on how many additional areas are to be treated, and how much excess fat is to be removed. You can discuss the fee amount during your consultation with Dr. Mihail COJOCARU.
