COSMETIC SURGERY-TUMMY TUCK

If you want a flat stomach minus the loose skin, then you should consider a cosmetic surgery procedure called an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck.

If dieting and exercising have only helped you to tone your muscles and lose weight, but lacks the ability to tighten your skin, then a tummy tuck can assist you in obtaining the results that you are looking for.

When you have a tummy tuck, the skin is tightened on the upper portion of your abdomen while the excess skin on your lower abdomen is removed which also eliminates any stretch marks that you may have in that area. The incisions for a tummy tuck are placed in your bikini line and in most cases in your belly button region as well.

A tummy tuck can take 2-5 hours depending on the extent of the procedure which will also determine whether or not it is an outpatient or inpatient procedure.

Anesthesia

Anesthesia can either be general or local anesthesia with sedation for less extensive procedures. Some side effects include discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Tummy tuck results are permanent, but can change if you gain weight or get pregnant.

Recovery Time

After tummy tuck surgery, you will need to have 3 days of bed rest. You should be able to return to work 2-4 weeks after your procedure. And you shouldn't do any strenuous activity for at least 4-8 weeks. You will experience some discomfort following your surgery and your surgeon will provide you with prescription pain medication that you can take to help control the pain.

Your tummy tuck can be combined with other procedures like:

  • Liposuction
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Thigh lift
  • Buttock lift
  • Chin
Call us to see if a tummy tuck is right for you. Your surgeon can also show you before and after pictures and answer any questions that you may have.
