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 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?
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 in order to experience the best results possible.
