What is a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure that is performed to tighten and flatten the abdomen to craft a slimmer appeal. Excess skin around the abdomen is often caused by a dramatic weight loss or pregnancy among other factors. While this procedure isn’t meant to serve as an alternative to a healthy lifestyle or as weight loss solution, a tummy tuck is ideal for those looking to put the finishing touches on their body transformation.
What can I expect?
During your tummy tuck procedure, a small incision is made from hip to hip near the pubic region, allowing our board-certified cosmetic surgeons to access the abdomen and reposition the belly button to maintain a natural look. Additionally, abdominal muscles are tightened to establish a more toned appeal. Once the procedure has completed, the incision will be sealed. While this is what a general tummy tuck procedure entails, your procedure will be based on what you are looking to accomplish.
What can I expect in terms of recovery?
After your surgery, your board-certified surgeon may advise setting aside between 7-14 days of downtime to properly heal. More time may be in order depending on the extent of your procedure. A compression garment may be recommended to minimize swelling. Our specialists will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure a faster, optimal recovery.
Is a tummy tuck right for me?
If you are bothered by excess skin around the abdomen as a result of pregnancy or a drastic weight loss, a tummy tuck may be an option to consider. Our surgeons can properly determine if a tummy tuck may be right for you following an evaluation of the targeted treatment area and a discussion regarding your medical history.
