Tummy Tucks/Abdominalplasty

Cosmetic Procedures

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.

A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.

Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Significant fluctuations in weight
  • Heredity
  • Prior surgery

Tummy tuck surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.

Abdominoplasty is a good option for you if:

  • You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You do not smoke

Although the results of an abdominoplasty procedure are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in your weight. For this reason, individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies may be advised to postpone abdominoplasty surgery.

Tummy Tucks

Tummy Tucks/Abdominalplasty

Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat. This procedure is popular among individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight, women who have undergone multiple pregnancies, or individuals who have excess skin and weakened muscles in the abdominal area due to aging or genetics. Tummy tucks can help to achieve a smoother, firmer abdominal contour, resulting in a more toned and sculpted appearance. It is important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine if a tummy tuck is the right option for you based on your individual needs and goals.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING TUMMY TUCK SURGERY?

Step 1

Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during abdominoplasty surgery. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.

Step 2

The Incision

A full tummy tuck procedure requires a horizontally-oriented incision in the area between the pubic hairline and navel. The shape and length of the incision will be determined by the degree of correction necessary.

Through this incision, weakened abdominal muscles are repaired and sutured while excess fat, tissue and skin is removed.

A second incision around the navel may be necessary to remove excess skin in the upper abdomen.

Step 3

Closing the incisions

Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips close the skin incisions.

Step 3

See the results

Your abdominoplasty procedure will result in a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more proportionate with your body type and weight.

The final results may be initially obscured by swelling and your inability to stand fully upright until internal healing is complete.

Within a week or two, you should be standing tall and confident about your new slimmer profile.
