You want to make your body look its best. You have one area that needs extra help. It’s your midsection. You have done every type of exercise you can find to tighten your tummy. You’ve changed your diet to eliminate fat. While the rest of your body is looking great, your tummy is still a trouble spot. It’s time to take your problem to an expert. Ask our plastic surgeon if the tummy tuck is the right solution for you.

How Do You Know if a Tummy Tuck Will Work for You?

When it comes to procedures to trim down your midsection, you can choose liposuction or a tummy tuck. Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures used to remove fat. A minor incision is made in order remove excess fat through a hollow tube. This alternative is recommended if you are within the range of your goal weight and you only have a problem with unwanted fat. If you have loose flabby skin, excess fat, and you have lost muscle tone, a tummy tuck would be the more effective alternative for you.

What Will Our Plastic Surgeon Do When You Have a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a little more complex than liposuction. Unwanted fat will be trimmed away. Your abdominal muscles can get some extra help as sutures tighten them up. Our surgeon will finish the procedure by tightening every up and making sure your body is slim and contoured.

What Can You Expect as You Recover from a Tummy Tuck?

Plan on taking a break from any extreme physical exertion for at least six weeks. Expect to wear an abdominal binder that will act like a compression garment in the weeks to come. This will help you to keep your swelling down to a manageable level. You’ll also be less mobile, avoiding strain on the treatment site. Plan on taking at least two weeks off from work after your procedure. Don’t overdo it. Enlist the help of friends and family while you are healing.
