A tummy tuck can help you regain strength and confidence in the appearance of your belly
About Tummy Tuck Surgery
Pregnancy, weight loss, weight gain, and age-related changes, all affect the shape and contour of your belly, hips, and lower back. We can address and correct all of your abdominal concerns, including: loose and/or hanging skin, excess fat, stretch marks, and damaged/stretched muscles. A tummy tuck can help you regain strength and confidence in your midsection!
Depending on the type of tummy tuck, most or all of the issues around your belly and waist will be treated. When combined with liposuction, the contour of your torso, including your lower back, can be treated in 360-degree fashion.
You should be in good health and at a maintainable weight. A medical clearance may be necessary if you are being treated for any chronic health conditions, such as high blood pressure. Basic blood work and possibly an EKG will be ordered if general anesthesia is indicated. A comprehensive postoperative care plan will be created and reviewed at your preoperative appointment.
Recovery from a tummy tuck is daunting but very doable. It takes a bit of planning due to the limitations on activity and lifting for the first few weeks after surgery. Therefore, plan on needing help during this time frame, including assistance with driving and household chores. If you have young children, you may need help with childcare. Surgical drains will be removed within 2 to 3 weeks and you can return to normal activities around 4 weeks.

A tummy tuck, aka abdominoplasty, is the gold standard in belly transformations. With one procedure, it can get rid of loose skin and excess fat, while tightening your stretched stomach muscles and contouring your entire torso in a 360-degree fashion.
