One of the most popular procedures performed by plastic surgeons today, a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can help restore the appearance of a firmer, flatter abdomen, increase your body confidence, and improve the look and fit of your wardrobe.
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure to remove loose, sagging skin and fat deposits—which might have been caused by pregnancy, substantial weight gain or loss, or
inherited traits —from your abdominal region, resulting in a flatter, smaller abdomen.
If you have excess skin around your middle and/or loose, sagging abdominal muscles, you may benefit from a tummy tuck, especially if it feels as though your stomach is resistant to diet and exercise.
What Should I Expect?
During a tummy tuck, your plastic surgeon makes an incision across the lower stomach and lifts the skin to tighten the abdominal muscles and eliminate excess skin and fat. The surgeon then places the skin in its new location, removes the excess skin and fat, and sutures the remaining skin. A tube may be inserted to drain fluids following the procedure.
Performed under general anesthesia, this procedure generally takes about three hours. Most patients require an overnight stay for observation, although some can go home after a few hours.
You may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, and you’ll need drains for excess fluid and support garments for a few weeks.
Patients generally feel completely recovered in anywhere from one to three months, and return to work two to four weeks after the surgery.
People have reported the following benefits:
- Better-fitting clothes and/or the need for smaller sizes
- Enhanced confidence in appearance
- Long-lasting results when accompanied by regular exercise and moderate diet
- Smaller, flatter, firmer belly area
- No excess abdominal skin
- Improved body proportions
