Tummy Tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is suited to patients who are in good physical condition, but who have large fat deposits or loose skin that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise. It is particularly helpful for women who have stretched abdominal muscles and skin from multiple pregnancies.
- Removes excess fat and skin from the upper and lower abdomen
- Creates a smoother and firmer abdominal profile
- In many cases, restores weakened or separated muscles
Tummy tuck is normally performed under general anesthesia and requires an overnight hospital stay. Swelling and bruising can be expected as well as a reasonable amount of downtime, but patients usually feel ready to resume daily activities after seven to ten days.
Abdominoplasty will produce a scar, however great care is taken to make an incision below the bikini line and in a natural crease that can be easily hidden.
