Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck

*Procedure of Interest:

AbdominoplastyIf diet and exercise haven’t delivered the flattened mid section you desire, you may be a candidate for abdominoplasty, commonly called a “tummy tuck.” Weight fluctuations, pregnancy or just plain heredity can lead to a persistent pouch. No matter the cause, your muscles in the abdomen have become stretched out and weakened and they have begun to sag and loosen.

When Should I Get A Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty surgery will eliminate the sagging and create a tight, flat midsection with a slimmer, more flattering waistline. If your tummy bulge is below the navel, a less complex procedure called a mini-tummy tuck or partial abdominoplasty may do the job. For an even better contour, tummy tucks may be combined with liposuction of the hips, waist, thighs or back. If you are planning future pregnancies, it may be best to delay your abdominoplasty, as the vertical muscles in the abdomen that are fused during the surgery will tend to separate again during pregnancy.

What To Do After Surgery:

After a few days, the dressing will be replaced with an elastic abdominal supporter, then a light support garment that you will wear for two to three weeks.
