Is There a Solution to the Cracks?

The abdominal region is a region that is quite prone to deformation, weight loss, childbirth, cesarean section and aging, along with sagging in the abdominal region, belly shape deterioration, muscle looseness, stretch marks are the problems we often see. Skin tightening with radiofrequency and ultrasound devices related to these problems, liposuction with vaser, laser lipolysis, tummy tuck surgery and vacuum therapy are also applied for stretch marks.

Today, the processes that we call technological aesthetics are becoming increasingly popular. With such devices, very satisfactory results can be obtained in people who are not suitable for surgery, do not want surgery, or have a very small amount of lubrication and sagging skin. These procedures, which are sessions, are applications that are easily performed in a clinical setting without the need for anesthesia.

Cracks were usually one of the problems that we have not found much solution to so far. After childbirth, skin tears occur after weight gain and loss. With vacuum therapy, which is a new method, and product application, positive results are obtained up to 70% in almost a single session. As a procedure, he applies vacuum therapy, which is a 30-minute procedure. Then, depending on the depth of the crack, 3 or 5 pieces use the products without any disruption for 21 days. And sometimes in very wide and deep cracks 2. Or 3. A session may be needed.

Tummy tuck surgery is divided into two types as mini tummy tuck and full tummy tuck surgery. In a full tummy tuck operation, the belly button is reconstructed, the loosening abdominal muscles are stitched, excess fat is removed and cracks in the lower part of the belly button are removed. But if there is a crack above the belly button, it cannot be interfered with. In mini tummy tuck surgery, the location of the belly button does not change and the cracks under the belly button can be reduced again.

Vaserlipo is an application performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia in a hospital environment. With ultrasonic sound waves called vaser, the existing fats are broken down, then the fats that become liquid are pulled out with the help of a cannula. She should wear a corset for about 1 month after the operation. Again, sports can be started after 1 month, and the results usually appear after 3 months.

First of all, none of the procedures I described above are applied to pregnant women. After tummy tuck and vaserlipo, patients can easily get pregnant after 1 year. After pregnancy, if breastfeeding has ended 1 year after birth, tummy tuck and vaserlipo procedure can be performed. In crack applications, it is enough that the person is not breastfeeding and is not pregnant. As a result, technology, medicine and aesthetic surgery are constantly developing and constantly renewing themselves.

Stay with love.
