Abdominoplasty/Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty/Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for women, and is becoming increasingly popular for men as well. If you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck, additional combination surgeries such as liposuction also may be appropriate. Many women have an abdominoplasty as part of their Mommy Makeover, which can combine procedures such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, facial procedures, and more.

Overview

Removes excess fat and skin and restores weakened or separated muscles.

Flattened tummy, improved confidence, and self-esteem. For some, it will improve back pain, posture and can decrease or eliminate stretch marks.

A full recovery can take several weeks.

Initially, there will be swelling and an inability to stand fully upright. You will have abdominal drains for 7-10 days. Weigh lifting restriction of 5lbs the first three weeks after surgery.

Sleeping elevated or in a recliner 1-2 weeks after surgery is recommended. Loose clothing while drains are in place and incisions are healing is favorable.

An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, removes the excess skin and fat around the midsection and tightens the abdominal muscles. It begins with an incision made acoss the width of your lower abdomen. The skin is then lifted from the abdominal muscles, which are tightened and stitched into their new position. Next, excess skin is removed and a new opening for the belly button is created. The first incison is then closed with a multi layered suture technique. Visit our Photo Gallery for before and after photos of real results of patients from The Aesthetic Center.
