Frequently Asked Questions

  • What shouldn’t I do following on from a tummy tuck?

    NO LIFTING OF ANT TYPE OF WEIGHT OR OBJECT over 2-3 kgs is advisable during the next two months.. During the first three days of stay in the hospital the goal is to recover from the surgery, to learn how to leave your bed and to start walking again. After three weeks your stitches are removed and you can start to perform very gentle massages around the lymphatic drainage area, three days a week for half-hour sessions for at least the next three months. During these first three post surgery months you’ll be required to wear daily an abdominal elastic band / support that will help you a lot with daily physical activities and give you confidence when walking.

  • In cases of large weight loss would multiple surgeries be required?

    Yes. In particular after losses of 30-40 kilos either by diet or gastric surgery we see widespread, sagging skin occurring around the abdomen but also on the arms, breast, back and thighs. Sometimes it is possible to remove this skin in a single operation, to perform a full surgery on all these areas at the same time during 5 hours of surgery. If this time is exceeded depending on each particular case it may be advisable to arrange two separate surgeries a minimum of six months apart.
