Tummy Tuck Surgery in Cyprus
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominal plastic surgery or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. Tummy tuck surgery in Cyprus is used when excess fat or loose skin due to pregnancy or extreme weight loss cannot be tightened with exercise or diet.
Bruising and swelling are common after abdominoplasty in Cyprus and the recovery takes time. The results of a tummy tuck are typically long-lasting because the fat cells that are removed cannot return, although weight gain or pregnancy can cause the abdominal muscles and skin to stretch out again over time.
Surgery time: 2 – 4 hours
Anesthetic: General anesthesia
Downtime: 3 – 8 weeks
Yes. A mini tummy tuck usually requires a night at the hospital. However, a full tummy tuck in Cyprus requires several days in the hospital since it is a more invasive surgery. Of course, this depends on each patient and the suggestion of the doctor.
Of course. Μany patients choose to have more than one surgery at the same time. A tummy tuck surgery in Cyprus can be combined with other procedures such as liposuction, breast surgery or other body plastic surgeries. Moreover, a tummy tuck can be part of a mommy makeover which is a combination of several plastic surgeries for women who have had babies.
Yes, it is an excellent idea as liposuction and tummy tuck are a fire combination. These two surgeries give a perfect result as with liposuction the doctor can also remove fat from areas like the patient’s flanks. This pair allows the doctor to treat back rolls as well as to contour the abdominal area.
Types of Tummy Tuck Surgery in Cyprus
The two types of abdominoplasty in Cyprus are mini and full. A mini tummy tuck focuses on the lower abdomen, while a full tummy tuck involves the entire abdominal area. In both cases, the surgery involves making an incision in the lower abdomen and then removing excess skin and fat. The muscles of the abdomen may also be tightened during the procedure. Recovery from a tummy tuck can take several weeks, but most patients are able to return to their normal activities within one to two months.
Full tummy tuck
A full tummy tuck surgery in Cyprus involves the removal of the fat and loose skin of the abdominal area, both above and below the belly button. The incision for a full tummy tuck is made along the bikini line, where the caesarean section is made and the length of it depends on the severity of the problem and how big the patient is. After the incision is made our doctors lift the skin and proceed to repair the abdominal muscles.
During a full tummy tuck, all the fat on the abdominal wall is removed and the muscles are tightened up. Also, since muscles can be tightened up together, an abdominoplasty in Cyprus is a great solution for women with diastasis recti after pregnancy.
Mini tummy tuck
A mini tummy tuck treats the skin below the belly button. During a partial tummy tuck surgery in Cyprus, the surgeon makes a small skin incision along the bikini line. This incision is much smaller than during a full tummy tuck, thus a potential scar is also smaller.
Patients who undergo a mini tummy tuck surgery in Cyprus are usually patients with a very small tummy pooch or women who want to revise a previous caesarean scar. In general, a mini tummy tuck surgery in Cyprus is more suitable for people who are within the recommended weight range but have some excess skin or a little pooch in the lower abdominal area.
