Tummy Tuck

home. cosmetic plastic surgery. tummy tuck

Do you feel that aging, weight fluctuations or pregnancy have negatively affected your body? As you age, your body goes through changes that cannot be avoided. You may have found that even when you live a healthy lifestyle, diet and exercise, your abdomen may appear loose, flabby, or bulge. Fortunately, A tummy tuck can restore the youthful, firm, contour to your abdomen.

What is a tummy tuck?

Excess skin, stubborn fat deposits, and a weakened abdominal wall can all contribute to a flabby, loose, or protruding abdomen. A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery that can remedy one or more of these factors to restore a youthful, firm, taut, abdominal area. In a tummy tuck, excess skin is removed, fat deposits slimmed away, and the underlying muscle structure tightened. The result is a firm, taut, youthful abdomen. This procedure can significantly improve your figure, with the added benefit of smoothing or removing stretch marks on the lower abdomen.

Am I a good candidate
for a tummy tuck?

If you are currently near your target weight but are bothered by excess fat or skin in the abdominal area, you may be an excellent candidate for a tummy tuck. If you plan on having more children or losing a substantial amount of weight, you may be advised to postpone your procedure until a later date. Your health history, expectations and any questions you may have extensively discussed with one of our acclaimed plastic surgeons prior to scheduling your surgical date.

What to expect during

  • An incision is made below the pubic hairline
  • Through this incision, the abdominal muscles will be tightened, and excess fat removed
  • Excess skin is surgically removed
  • Before your procedure, your surgeon will discuss the removal of excess fat on your hips with liposuction
  • The belly button structure may be moved to be centered in a youthful location, and the incisions closed with sutures

What to expect during

A tummy tuck requires roughly two weeks of downtime, but you may be unable to return your full activity level for about 12 weeks.
