Tummy tuck with the Fleur de Lis

Tummy tuck with the Fleur de Lis method is extended abdominoplasty, which is an extended abdominal plastic surgery. It is dedicated to people after high weight loss. It happens that people require abdominoplasty with removal of excess skin and fat not only from around the abdomen, but also from the so-called sides and back. Thanks to the treatment, the flabby side muscles around the hips are improved, not just the appearance of the abdominal wall.

The surgery involves making an incision covering the entire length of the abdomen and extending to the patient’s hips. The surgeon then flexes the exposed muscles and creates a new navel that is more consistent with the patient’s new body shape. The surgeon can also use liposuction to get the desired body contour. After removing excess skin and removing it from areas such as the hips, back, sides and stomach, the incision is closed with sutures. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia.

Please inform your doctor about all medications you are taking and complaints during your medical consultation. All required tests should be performed as prescribed by the physician prior to surgery. It is very important to stop smoking and drinking alcohol before surgery because these substances have a significant negative effect on wound healing. We recommend giving up alcohol and cigarettes for as long as possible before and after the procedure to avoid postoperative scars. You should stay fasting 6 hours before the procedure.

The patient should remain in the hospital 2-3 days after surgery. Swelling and redness gradually disappear after 2-3 weeks after the procedure. A suitable elastic corset should be worn during the day and at night for 3 months. It will allow for proper healing of postoperative wounds. Physical exercises can be performed after 6 weeks.

During the first weeks after the surgery, avoid physical exertion or heavy lifting, as well as sauna visits, bathing and sunbathing. It is also worth giving up drinking and smoking nicotine-containing products as long as possible. This is important because of the proper healing of wounds after surgery and reducing the likelihood of scars.

People struggling with comorbidities or other health problems must inform their physician during the first qualification consultation. Before the procedure, perform all tests as prescribed by the doctor and follow all recommendations before and after the procedure.
