A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure in which your surgeon removes excess tissues from your abdominal area and tightens the remaining tissues to flatten and reduce the size of your midsection. Abdominoplasty produces dramatic slimming results after weight loss or pregnancy.
The main benefit of undergoing a tummy tuck is to reshape abdominal tissues, reducing loose, sagging, or excess skin and fat. Your Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa provider tailors each tummy tuck procedure to ensure cosmetically pleasing results you’ll be proud to show off. The procedure allows you to wear your favorite clothing styles confidently.
To find out if you’re a candidate for a tummy tuck and which type of abdominoplasty procedure best suits you, the Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa team reviews your medical history and desired results. They examine your stomach and other areas of your body that may concern you.
Your surgeon can complete additional procedures at the same time as a tummy tuck, such as breast augmentation, breast lift, or liposuction during a mommy makeover. Both men and women can benefit from tummy tucks.
During a tummy tuck, your Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa provider offers general anesthesia to help you fall asleep. They use various methods and cutting-edge technology to remove excess tissues, tighten the remaining tissues, and close your incisions.
A full or extended tummy tuck requires incisions from hip bone to hip bone, right above your pubic region. A mini tummy tuck uses smaller incisions. Your surgeon may place temporary tubes in your abdominal area to drain excess fluids during the healing process.
Abdominoplasty often takes about three to four hours, sometimes longer if you undergo multiple cosmetic surgeries during the same procedure.
After a tummy tuck, get plenty of rest and take medications as directed by your surgeon. Wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and empty your drains as needed. Avoid walking upright and undergoing strenuous activities until given the OK, and attend follow-up visits with the Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa team.
