Tummy Tuck

Do you suffer from loose, saggy skin and stubborn fat in the abdominal area that won’t slim down, no matter what you do? There are a lot of different factors associated with fat retention in the abdominal area. From poor lifestyle habits to changes in hormones, fat may not be so easily defeated without a little extra help from a skilled plastic surgeon. Fortunately, Dr. Banis Plastic Surgery can help address your aesthetic concerns with a tummy tuck.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that’s designed to help patients who want to get rid of excess fat from the abdominal region to achieve toned abdominal contours. It is a useful cosmetic solution for men and women who are in relatively good physical health but have a significant amount of loose skin and stubborn fat that creates a pooch.

What to Expect During the Procedure

A tummy tuck is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning patients can safely return home the same day of the procedure. Our team will begin the surgical process by marking the appropriate areas for the incision. We will administer an anesthetic to help you feel comfortable during the surgical process. After the anesthetic has taken effect, an incision will be made in the designated area.

Through the incision, we will remove any fatty deposits and excess skin. We will also lift the underlying tissue and abdominal muscles to achieve the desired look. Once the corrections are made, the remaining skin is closed and the treatment area is bandaged.

Recovery After a Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is an invasive cosmetic procedure that will cause some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort after the surgery is completed. These side effects are temporary, but if the discomfort becomes too much to handle, we will provide pain medication to help you feel comfortable as you heal. You will need to take some time off work to rest and recover after the surgery. This includes avoiding strenuous physical activities as well.

Our team will provide you with post-surgical instructions that you will need to adhere to experience the best results possible.

Patient Testimonials

"I can honestly say that I am impressed"

“I have had Ultherapy treatment and I can honestly say that I am impressed. Each treatment brings an immediate tightening effect and then over the next few months you see your skin continue to improve. It is excellent at stimulating the deeper skin layers. The collagen in my face gets a major boost – and so does my confidence level! This is a treatment that actually produces real and noticeable results. I now have a maintenance treatment on a yearly basis. The treatment is completely tolerable with no downtime. In my opinion, there are not too many treatments available that can give you impressive results and no time out for healing, you’re good to go. You should approach the treatment with realistic expectations and afterwards be pleasantly surprised. It is not a miracle worker, but it just might be the next closest thing. My experience has been completely positive and I love to get a big bang for my buck. Ultherapy is an amazing treatment and a very good investment. Aging is inevitable, but who says you can’t do it gracefully and at a slower rate. I will also say that it is incredibly important to have it performed by a trusted provider who is well trained with this procedure. Abby has both the credentials as well as the experience with this treatment and I trust her without reservation. If you are considering Ultherapy, make an appointment with Abby today.”
