Tummy Tuck in Kuala Lumpur

Tummy Tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a popular surgical procedure to flatten the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin. It will also tighten the muscles in the abdominal wall. It is different from liposuction, but patients may choose to get liposuction along with tummy tuck. Note that it is not an alternative to treat obesity. It is suitable for men and women who are in good health, especially women who want to regain their pre-pregnancy shape or people who experienced significant weight loss to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits. There are two types of tummy tuck surgery: complete abdominoplasty and partial abdominoplasty.

During complete abdominoplasty, the surgeon will cut the patients abdomen from hipbone to hipbone and then contour the skin. Partial abdominoplasty is done for those who have fat deposits below the navel area. The surgery usually lasts for about one to five hours, depending on the case. Patients will be given general anesthesia so they will be asleep and will not feel anything during the procedure.

Patients may go home on the same day or they may have to stay for one night. Plan to stay in the Kuala Lumpur for at least one week to attend follow-up check-ups. After the surgery, patients will experience tenderness and pain. It is important to strictly follow the doctor’s aftercare instruction and limit difficult activities. The recovery period is around four to six weeks. Many patients have seen a positive result after the procedure, a tummy tuck is known to have around 95% success rate. However, patients should still be aware of the possible risks, such as infections, bleeding, and seroma. There are several alternatives to this procedure, including CoolSculpting and SculpSure. However, these procedures are not as effective as a tummy tuck and will not give patients the same result.
