Tummy Tuck - Abdominoplasty Surgery

Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can address stubborn belly fat, excess skin, and loose stomach muscles that contribute to a bulging midsection. Factors like substantial weight fluctuations or pregnancy may lead to a protruding abdomen over time. Diet and exercise alone are not enough to restore firm definition to the midsection in this case, as these weight loss methods do not address loose skin or stretched muscles. Tummy tuck surgery can reposition lax skin and tighten weakened muscles for a flatter-looking stomach. The goal when performing abdominoplasty is to achieve a slim, natural-looking waistline that inspires confidence in one’s look.

Your Tummy Tuck Procedure

Depending on your specific treatment plan, your tummy tuck may be performed at either an outpatient surgical facility or a local hospital. Some patients may require a 1-night hospital stay after tummy tuck surgery. Abdominoplasty incisions are placed below the bikini line to ensure that they are virtually unnoticeable. Stretched abdominal muscles can be repositioned closer together to restore a firmer shape to the midsection. Any excess skin is redraped and trimmed to eliminate sagging. Your tummy tuck surgeon can also remove small amounts of unwanted belly fat around the abs, obliques, and flanks to reduce bulging and further enhance musculature.

Tummy tuck surgery is often combined with liposuction in order to tighten skin, reposition muscles, and remove excess fat all in one procedure. Abdominoplasty can also be used with other body sculpting methods, including a lower body lift, mommy makeover surgery, and breast augmentation.

What To Expect After Undergoing Your Tummy Tuck Surgery

Moderate bruising and swelling are usually present for a few weeks after abdominoplasty surgery. Patients normally return to work after 1-2 weeks and are advised to avoid strenuous activities for about 4-6 weeks to ensure optimal recovery. Specific timeframes can be further explained during your abdominoplasty consultation.

Undergoing a tummy tuck can produce substantial, long-lasting enhancements to the shape and contour of your waistline. Scars are usually hidden beneath undergarments or swimwear, making them virtually unnoticeable during your day-to-day routine.
