Mini Tummy Tuck in Thailand

Tummy Tuck Thailand

Perhaps you are in reasonable shape but have an issue below your belly button.

You are finding your dieting and exercise is really not helping so you need some assistance.

A mini tummy tuck is perfect for women that have a small amount of excess abdominal skin or who has some localised fat and does not have significant abdominal muscle separation.

If you have a slim abdomen and need a more shapely figure then the mini tummy tuck may be what you require.

Should I get a Mini Tummy Tuck or a Full Tummy Tuck

Let's make sure you understand the difference between the two types of surgery

Possible Procedures in a Mummy Makeover

Mini Tummy Tuck

Typically a Mini Tummy Tuck involves an incision about 20cm and again under your bikini line This procedure will flatten your tummy below your belly button Typically women requiring a mini tummy tuck do not require tightening of abdominal muscles.

Being an operation that is not as significant as a full Tummy Tuck means less scarring, a shorter operation, typically 2-3 hours , and recuperation is easier/ quicker.

A mini tummy tuck may be a good option if your excess skin is located below the navel only, the navel does not require reshaping or repositioning, and there is little to no muscle separation requiring repair. Mini tummy tuck patients are often hoping to address a very small tummy “pouch” or revise a previous caesarean scar.

Hence your surgery type will come down to if you require repair of separated muscles(full tummy tuck) or typically only requiring minimal removal of skin/fat and most often not muscle tightening

Full Tummy Tuck

Extended Tummy Tuck

In this procedure you will lose excess skin and your abdominal muscles will be tightened.

This procedure, typically 3-4 hours, will be across all of your abdominal area, hip to hip, and your incision line is generally just below your bikini line (hidden under your bikini/ underwear)

Extended Tummy Tuck

Patients should not be opting for a Tummy Tuck with the thought that the operation will cause the loss of lots of weight.

Whilst naturally there will be weight loss due to the removal of skin / fat typically with a full Tummy tuck one loses about 1.4kg and with a mini tummy tuck you will lose about .8 kgNot a significant weight loss but certainly a significant surgical outcome can be achieved.

A tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck is major surgery hence after surgery care is very important. If you are interested in arranging complimentary consultation for this type of surgery then please contact us.

Mini Tummy tuck or Full Tummy tuck both are major operations and post surgery it is essential to take due care. After your mini tummy tuck it will take several weeks to recover and it is essential to take plenty or rest, do not lift heavy objects (including your suitcase upon return to home) and ensure you use your compression garments.

Very moderate exercise may commence 4- 6 weeks post surgery but not major exercise – cardio exercise and moderate exercise only.

Recovery after a tummy tuck can take several weeks. Immediately after the operation, patients can expect a tugging sensation accompanied by swelling, numbness, pain, and bruising around the wounds or sutures.

The best thing for patients to do is take plenty of rest and keep the compression garment on during the healing process.

Quite simply YES – A mini tummy tuck does not affect your fertility a pregnancy may cuase separtion of your muscles and stretching of you skin and then you may be requiring a full tummy tuck.

ie: if you are planning to have further children it is probably wise to wait for surgery until after you have finished having children.

It is correct any surgery under local anesthesia compared to a general anesthesia is less costly however this should not be the consideration. A mini Tummy tuck (and a full tummy tuck) being major surgery should only be conducted under a general anesthesia.

Importantly we believe it is absolutely critical to only have such surgery in a Tier 1 Thai Hospital and NOT in a small clinic which there are many of in Thailand. Thailand’s Tier one hospital have better facilities and equipment than clinics and remember quality care and safety should be your primary consideration.

The term Mummy Makeover is really a marketing term and simple means whatever surgery a mummy requires and requires post having children.

A Mini Tummy tuck certainly can be part of your mummy makeover and it can be combined with other surgeries such as breast surgery, liposuction or any other surgery a Mummy requires.

When bubs comes along scarring if usually not the main consideration hence women end up with undesirable scars and often hanging skin.

A Mini Tummy tuck can, in many cases, can rid a patient of the c-section scarring and only leaving the mini tummy tuck scar which , as mentioned earlier, can be located under the bikini pants line.
