Tummy Tuck

How can a tummy tuck benefit me?

Tummy Tuck

Transform Your Figure  & Enhance Your Confidence*

Most Effective Treatment

While there are a variety of non-surgical solutions to tone your abdomen, they are not as effective as a tummy tuck. Only surgical contouring can achieve a dramatic transformation by directly removing the excess fat and skin that has accumulated in the area.

Almost Immediate Transformation

You will be able to see a notable difference in the size and shape of your waist immediately after the procedure. However, your final results will not become visible until several weeks or even months once the swelling subsides. 

Long-Term Results

As you age, you may notice some sagging in your abdomen but tummy tuck results can last a lifetime if you maintain a healthy lifestyle including proper diet and exercise.

Do You Qualify for  a Tummy Tuck?

In Good Overall Health

You should be in good overall health before undergoing tummy tuck surgery. Smoking and certain medical conditions such as autoimmune diseases can increase your risk of complications.

Dissatisfied with Your Abdomen

Whether your concerns are due to aging, pregnancy, or substantial weight loss, tummy tuck surgery is recommended for patients who are specifically dissatisfied with their abdominal area.

Tried Diet & Exercise

Typically, surgery is only recommended if you have tried implementing a consistent exercise routine and following a healthy diet and still have not achieved your goals.

Able to Maintain a Stable Weight 

For the best results, it is recommended that you are committed to maintaining a stable weight. If you are planning to become pregnant, it is recommended that you wait to undergo surgery.

Set Realistic Expectations

A tummy tuck is not a weight loss surgery and it can only remove moderate amounts of excess fat and skin on the abdomen. For these reasons, you should be close to your goal weight.

Is tummy tuck surgery safe?

Abdominoplasty Is a Fairly Low-Risk Procedure

While every surgery is associated with certain risks, both minor and potentially more serious, less than one percent of patients experienced a systemic complication after a tummy tuck. During the initial consultation, your doctor will thoroughly evaluate your medical history to determine whether there are any factors that will increase your risk. You will also be made of aware of any potential complications so that you can weigh your decision carefully.

Are you only concerned with the lower abdomen?

You May Consider a Mini Tummy Tuck

A mini tummy tuck is an alternative abdominoplasty technique that focuses on the portion of the abdomen below the belly button. This procedure is beneficial for patients who are frustrated with excess fat or skin that has accumulated in this area but are otherwise happy with their waistline. During a mini tummy tuck, stretch marks can be removed and the lower abdomen will be tightened to create a firmer, flatter stomach.*

What is the recovery process like?

Tummy Tuck Recovery  What You Need to Know

After tummy tuck surgery, it is imperative that you comply with your doctor's recommendations to reduce your risk of complications. During the healing period you will need to: 

  • Ensure you are able to rest for at least two weeks 
  • Sleep on an incline for the first few days
  • Maintain a healthy, nutritious diet 
  • Remain hydrated by drinking sufficient water for your body weight
  • Avoid driving for the first few weeks
  • Limit exercise and avoid strenuous activities for four to six weeks

Each patient's full recovery time will vary depending on their overall health and other factors. However, many patients can return to work after about two weeks.

Final Tummy Tuck Results

While you will be able to see a dramatic change in your waistline after surgery, swelling will be notable during the first few weeks of recovery. As your body heals, you will begin to see better definition of your abdomen area. After two weeks, the results should be substantial. However, it can take a full year to see your final results

Improving your figure with a tummy tuck can be a life-changing experience. Many patients feel exponentially more confident once they have overcome their insecurities to achieve their goals.
