Tummy tuck (also known as Abdominoplasty) is plastic surgery to remove skin and tissue in the abdominal area. Doctors normally perform this to remove a section of the abdominal wall that is loose or sagging. However, many people already have an idea of the process. What it does not answer though is if this is the treatment for them. One thing many people wonder is if they are eligible for this treatment and if they can get good results. In a Melbourne Tummy Tuck, people want to know the before and after as well. This is where they can really determine if this Abdominoplasty Melbourne treatment can help them or not

How Can You Tell if You Quality for a Melbourne Tummy Tuck

Before you look at the results of a Melbourne Tummy tuck, you have to first see if you are eligible to get one. A tummy tuck is generally open to anyone of both ages and genders provided you are an adult. However, there are finer details that doctors want to consider before they give you the treatment. Probably the most basic requirement they look for is the desire to change your appearance. This means you are not happy with your tummy either because of excess skin or fat.
This loose skin can be for several reasons and make certain people more likely to get this Melbourne tummy tuck. Usually loose skin or fat comes from a sudden change in your body weight. This does not give your body enough time to adjust and leaves a lot of loose skin. Something like this normally happens as a result of intensive exercise or pregnancy. If you recently underwent either of these, then you should consider this treatment.
Similar to skin, you can also consider getting this treatment if fat is your main issue. In our stomachs, we have many stubborn deposits of fat that even exercise cannot get rid of. This is where a Melbourne tummy tuck can help deal with it. However, that does not mean you should not try exercise first. One thing doctors don’t want to encourage is the idea that this is a substitute for exercise.
Lastly and most importantly is that you are in good health. Doctors will perform a full examination on you to determine if you can handle the surgery. They will check if you have medical conditions or allergies that can affect the treatment.

How to Prepare for the Treatment

Once they finish this consultation and give the go signal, they can take you to the next step of the Melbourne Abdominoplasty. Now comes the planning and preparation for the Melbourne tummy tuck. First of all, they will ask you to select which type of tummy tuck you want. Different types are ranging in scope and severity. The basic ones only aim to remove fat and skin from a small area. Meanwhile, premium treatments work in a wider area and will also repair muscles. Of course, these different treatments also vary in a cause so you will want to keep an eye on that.

After that, you can now schedule your treatment with your doctor who will give you some instructions. One thing they recommend is that you stop certain things that can cause complications or hamper your recovery. This includes smoking or consuming alcohol both of which affect the circulation around your body. Aside from that, certain medicines are also off-limits if they act as blood thinners. This is because they can cause issues when your doctor makes their incision.

After the Treatment

After any treatment, doctors will require some time to recover. This is for your body to adjust to the treatment and what you can and can’t do depends on the treatment. Since a Melbourne tummy tuck is relatively noninvasive, there are fewer limits to it. There are few side effects and most of them are things such as discomfort, bruising, and slight pain. These are things that will disappear on their own. If you have serious side effects, be sure to contact your doctor.

Most doctors will allow you to get back to work within the next few days. In fact, some of them encourage you to move around your house and get some exercise. They believe that exercise can help your body heal faster and adjust to the new treatment. Doctors say you can get back at it after around ten days of recovery.

There is a limit though to what you can do after a Melbourne tummy tuck. Doctors encourage some walking and movement, but no heavy lifting. Exercises like that can be too strenuous on your body and exhaust you even further. There is also a risk that it can cause the switches to open up. Doctors normally recommend avoiding this for around six weeks.

In terms of results, you will probably not see them right away. This treatment takes time to adjust and if you do not obey the instructions this can make it even longer. Normally though, you will begin seeing results somewhere after two or three weeks. Here you will see your stomach begin to look slimmer and more defined. These results will only increase over time and can continue to happen for several months. They only stop after around six months, though by then the contrast will look dramatic.
