Tummy Tuck Surgery - Abdominoplasty
Sometimes, no matter how much we exercise, there are certain parts of the body we just can’t pull into shape. Diet, exercise regimes and hard work might make us slimmer and fitter, but the tummy is an area that constant attention and targeted exercises don’t always tone. There are books and videos dedicated to this part of the body. A quick Google search will bring all of these up. But the simple truth of the matter is that losing weight from the tummy is incredibly difficult. There are some areas of the belly where there is stubborn fat, or excess skin, that is impossible to remove through diet and exercise. That’s where you need a little help from us.
There might be a number of reasons why you have some excess weight or skin around the tummy area. It happens to many people. If you have had children or lost a lot of weight, then you can carry some excess skin here. As we get older it is more difficult than ever to shed this weight and get back on track again. If you have too much excess fat or skin in the abdomen region of the body, then you are a prime candidate for a tummy tuck.
You may have been put off the procedure by the high process charged in the UK or Ireland. But, did you know that this procedure is available in another EU country at a fraction of the cost? Contact us to find out how Lithuania could be the destination for your tummy tuck.

What You Need To Know About Tummy Tuck
What Is a Tummy Tuck?
Great question. A tummy tuck is also known as an abdominoplasty. It is a procedure where excess fat and skin is removed from the tummy and the muscles tightened. This allows you to look great – and feel great about the way you look too. It is a simple procedure that many people choose to look as good as they can. Attracting a partner is often a matter of looking great on the outside. But what a tummy tuck also does is get you feeling great on the inside.
The most successful people in the world have those tow things in abundance. They know what they want and then go out and get it. Feeling like you are worth it is a major contributing factor to success. If you want the best of these two worlds, then a tummy tuck might be the thing for you. If you are unsure then get in touch with our dedicated team to ask as many questions as you like. If you have been trying to lose that troublesome extra fat, and get rid of excess skin from the tummy without significant result, then we are here to help. Drop us a line.
How Is the Surgery Performed?
The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and takes between 2–4 hours.
An incision is placed in the lower abdomen, above the pubic hairline. In a complete abdominoplasty or a full tummy tuck, the incision extends from one hipbone to the other. The skin and subcutaneous tissue as a unit are separated from the muscles up to the lower part of the sternum. The excess skin and subcutaneous tissue below the belly button are removed, the separated muscles are tightened with special stitches, and a new opening is cut on the abdominal wall for the repositioning of the belly button, which is sutured into its new place. The surgery is completed by closing the incision and inserting the drains to prevent fluid accumulation.
If the problem is only the muscles separated (there is no excess skin and the skin retains its elasticity), a partial abdominoplasty, or a mini tummy tuck, can be performed. In such a case, the incision is analogous to the one described above but is shorter. The skin and subcutaneous tissue as a unit are segmented to the level where the muscles are separated; the belly button remains in the same place and only slightly is moved down.
Tummy tuck surgery is often performed in conjunction with liposuction on the abdominal and waist areas.
What Should Be Known After Surgery?
The first 2 postoperative days are usually spent in the clinic;
Dry bandages should be applied on the incisions every 2–3 days;
It is allowed to take a shower after 4 days;
The stitches are removed after 2 weeks;
Most patients resume their daily routines within 2 weeks;
Strenuous physical activities and sports are recommended not earlier than 3 months after the surgery;
A special compression garment should be worn for 6 weeks after the surgery (22–23 hours per day);
The final outcome is seen after 4 months when the swelling subsides completely;
The postoperative scars should be protected from direct sunlight for the period not shorter than 1 year to make them less noticeable. The scars usually fade within 2 years.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a full tummy tuck, or can I have a mini tummy tuck?
If there is a lot of loose skin you will need a full tummy tuck. On the other hand, if your skin is tight then you may need a mini tummy tuck. A very common situation is when there is too much fat, then liposuction should be combined with the removal of the skin. It is always a good idea to consult with your doctor before jumping into any conclusion.
Will a tummy tuck help to hide stretch marks?
Usually yes, but of course it depends on where the stretch marks are located. A full tummy tuck removes most of the skin in the lower abdomen, and any stretch marks in this zone will be removed along with the loose skin. Stretch marks outside of that zone are not really going to be removed.
Will the results last after surgery?
Yes, the results will last as long as you body weight remains stable. Typically a tummy tuck never needs to be repeated.
