Tummy Tuck Surgery Candidates
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure performed to improve the shape and appearance of your abdomen. This surgery is ideal for those with sagging skin around the abdomen. If you have lost significant weight or recently given birth, this surgery may be right for you. Ideal candidates are non-smokers with no underlying health conditions.
Tummy Tuck Procedure
A typical tummy tuck procedure takes 2-3 hours to perform. The procedure involves making incisions to remove most of the skin and fat between your belly button and pubic area. Connective tissue that lies over the abdominal muscles will then be tightened permanently. Then, the incision will be stitched together, leaving a scar that falls along the natural creases of your bikini line. Sometimes liposuction to the sides is done to improve your overall body contour.
Surgical dressing must be worn after the procedure, and small tubes will be placed in the incision site to drain any excess fluid. When you go home, you will need to wear a supportive garment for several weeks until your abdomen heals. Once your skin heals, you can expect your results to last indefinitely as long as you maintain weight.
