Abdominoplasty in Tunisia : Cosmetic surgery of the belly

Abdominoplasty in Tunisia: what is cosmetic surgery of the stomach?

Abdominoplasty in Tunisia is a cosmetic surgery of the abdomen that serves to reshape the abdomen in order to beautify the belly area and harmonize the silhouette. The aim is to remove excess fat and skin, while restructuring the abdomen and strengthening the muscles of the abdomen.

Also called flat tummy surgery, abdominoplasty in Tunisia is not however a purely aesthetic surgery. It is also restorative. Indeed, it allows the removal of excess fat (by liposuction of the abdomen), the tightening of the abdominal muscle wall and the tightening of the straight muscles, and the tightening of the skin of the abdomen (by abdominal lift).

Cosmetic surgery belly in Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step in an abdominoplasty in Tunisia is the pre-operative check-up. The surgeon asks you questions about your general health. He will then evaluate the characteristics of your belly (muscle tone, fatty overload, skin condition and texture). Following this evaluation, he will be able to determine if your expectations are realistic or not. He will also discuss with you the risks, complications that may arise, recovery time and cost of cosmetic surgery of the abdomen.

*Disclaim: the results of an abdominoplasty in Tunisia can vary from one person to another depending on the morphology of the patients.

How is the abdominoplasty performed in Tunisia?

Abdominoplasty in Tunisia is performed under general anesthesia. This aesthetic surgery lasts between 1 and 2 hours and requires a hospitalization of 1 to 2 days at the clinic.

Depending on the case, abdominoplasty in Tunisia may involve several steps:

Liposuction of the abdomen is the first step. The surgeon removes the excess fat with the help of fine foam cannulas.

Apart from the excess fat, the surgeon proceeds to the removal of the skin tissues of the upper abdomen if there is an excess of skin, in order to prepare the ground for a skin tightening to optimize the final result by the abdominal lift.

If in addition to the excess fat and skin, there is an alteration of the abdominal wall, the surgeon must treat the problem by tightening the rectus muscles.

Finally, the surgeon removes the excess skin tissue. If the patient’s morphology allows it, an “umbilical transposition” (repositioning of the navel on the tightened skin) can be performed.

Who are the ideal candidates for an abdominoplasty in Tunisia?

  • Here are some reasons why an abdominoplasty in Tunisia is considered:

    There is significant sagging of the skin on your abdomen that manifests itself as the presence of an abdominal apron partially covering the pubic area, abdominal muscle weakness, or both; due to aging, heredity, pregnancy, previous surgery or weight fluctuations.

    Thin people with a stable weight are the best candidates; this procedure is not appropriate for those who are generally obese.

    If diet and exercise are not sufficient to remove fat, stretch marks or excess skin in your abdomen.

    If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for tummy tuck in Tunisia.

What are the realistic expectations of an abdominoplasty in Tunisia?

  • One to two waistlines can be gained following an abdominoplasty combined with liposuction.

    Surgery is not a substitute for a weight loss program as despite a flatter stomach and an improved waistline, only 2 to 8 kg of weight can be reduced by an abdominoplasty with liposuction of the fat in the abdomen and flanks.

    Incision scars may take about 9 months to heal and fade, but will not disappear completely. See our Facebook page for photos of abdominoplasty in Tunisia and reviews from our patients.

    This surgical procedure can tighten abdominal muscles that have become quite loose over time.

    Abdominoplasty in Tunisia works when there have been significant changes in the abdomen due to pregnancy and aging.

    This is a relatively permanent procedure, but the results tend to change if there are significant changes in the patient’s weight.

  • After an abdominoplasty in Tunisia, it is recommended to avoid baths and swimming pools until complete healing (approximately after 3 weeks). Showers are generally allowed after the first week (after consulting your surgeon).
    Sports activities can be resumed after one month.
    It is recommended to avoid exposing the operated areas to the sun until the bruises disappear (a period that lasts between 2 and 3 weeks).
    An abdominal girdle must be worn permanently (day and night) for one month. However, it can be removed for the shower or the toilet, but must be put back on immediately afterwards.
    The first few nights, it is preferable to hold a slightly bent posture in order to relieve the skin tension.
    Lymphatic drainage is usually performed about 5 days after the procedure to help speed up the disappearance of swelling. It should be performed by a qualified physiotherapist for 2 weeks at a rate of 3 sessions per week.
    LPG (CELLU M6) is a good complement to liposuction. It allows to refine the result and to treat the cellulite often associated with abdominoplasty. It is recommended at a rate of 3 sessions per week, for a period of one month, starting the first month following the tummy tuck.
  • Abdominoplasty surgery in Tunisia will restore a flat stomach.
    It helps to reduce the waistline.
    With tummy tuck in Tunisia, you will have a younger body
    The surgery removes unwanted skin lesions and skin imperfections that exist on the stomach.
    This procedure can be used in conjunction with other surgeries such as liposuction to multiply the benefits on the body.
    Stretch marks can be found in both women and men. These marks are especially visible on those who have undergone weight loss programs and pregnant women. Stretch marks can be reduced or eliminated by the tummy tuck procedure and it helps in the process of increasing the quality of the skin.
    This surgical procedure improves the psychological well-being of patients who are dissatisfied with their current body shape.
    The removal of excess skin in an abdominoplasty in Tunisia and the same for a thigh lift or arm lift does not cause the infections that occur in the skin folds (which otherwise occur due to poor hygiene and sweating).
  • The incision for a full abdominoplasty requires a suprapubic cross-section, so the scar can be hidden in a bikini. Your surgeon will determine the shape and length of the incision based on your preferences and the amount of correction you need. You can also have an incision around the belly button (circular peri-umbilical scar).

    With a mini-abdominoplasty in cases of minimal skin laxity, the surgeon can place the incision as low as possible; it can be hidden in the pubic hair. The abdominal skin that is removed is below the navel, and there is no incision around the navel. The length of the mini-abdominal incision varies depending on how much skin your surgeon removes.

    The scars of an abdominoplasty in Tunisia take their final appearance in one year. However, the result can be appreciated after 3 to 6 months of healing when the pinkish aspect fades.

As far as anesthesia is concerned: during the consultation, the anesthesiologist will himself inform the patient of the anesthetic risks. The fact of having recourse to a perfectly competent anesthesiologist, practicing in a real surgical context (recovery room, possibility of resuscitation) means that the risks incurred have become statistically very low.

It is important to know that techniques, anesthetic products and monitoring methods have made immense progress over the last thirty years, offering optimal safety, especially when the operation is performed outside of an emergency and on a person in good health.

As far as the surgical procedure is concerned, by choosing a qualified and competent plastic surgeon, trained in this type of procedure, you limit these risks as much as possible, without however eliminating them completely.

Real complications are exceptional after an abdominoplasty in Tunisia: a great rigor in the choice of the indication and the surgical realization must ensure in practice an effective and real prevention.

For the sake of completeness, it is necessary to mention, despite their usual rarity

Thrombo-embolic accidents: wearing anti-thrombosis stockings, getting up early, and possible anti-coagulant treatment help to reduce this risk.
Bleeding is rarely serious, unless there is an associated coagulation disorder or the patient is taking medication that promotes bleeding.
Hematoma and lymphatic effusion appear exceptionally after a correctly performed abdominoplasty.
Similarly, localized skin necrosis, which lengthens the healing process and may leave scars, should no longer be observed.
Infection is rare in this type of “closed” surgery and can be prevented by prescribing a prophylactic antibiotic treatment.
Alterations in sensitivity can sometimes persist in the treated areas, but it usually returns to normal within 3 to 12 months.
