For many people, the summer season brings a level of stress and concern. Though the weather is sunny and warm, some people are hesitant to go out and enjoy the beach or pool because of their dissatisfaction and with the appearance of their midsection. Whether it’s excess fat that won’t budge or excess droopy skin, this area can be challenging to tone and even hide.
But there’s good news: A tummy tuck addresses these issues and can leave you with a trim, tight and sculpted midsection that you can be proud of…and want to show off! Keep reading to learn more about the tummy tuck procedure.
Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a cosmetic treatment that removes extra fat and skin in your midsection. This treatment also tightens your abdominal muscles. The result is a leaner, tighter midsection free of fat and skin.
This treatment is customized to your needs, as everyone’s concerns and body type is different. The goal is always to provide you with a natural-looking result. This treatment is ideal for both men and women who have lost a substantial amount of weight and want to get rid of loose skin, or those who have tried diet and exercise and are frustrated with the lack of tightness in the midsection and stubborn fat that just won’t budge.
Patients who see Dr. Andrew for a tummy tuck will first need a consultation. Dr. Andrew will discuss the treatment in depth and evaluate whether you are an ideal candidate.
The treatment itself is done under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Dr. Andrew will make an incision in the area between the belly button and pubic region. Then liposuction is performed as needed along with skin removal. The two sides of skin that remains is then stretched to meet one another before being stitched together.
The treatment may take several hours, and recovery is typically three weeks. During this time, you will need to rest and let your body heal and avoid strenuous activities. As such, you should make work arrangements and attain help as needed with daily activities.
