When it comes to achieving a flat and toned midsection, very few procedures are as popular or effective as the tummy tuck. Countless of these are carried out every single year, and this operation has helped millions of patients achieve their cosmetic goals. With modern techniques and cutting-edge tools, our team can minimize your recovery time while still producing world-class results. If you are tired of hiding your midsection, it might be time to consider a tummy tuck.
The Purpose of a Tummy Tuck
Even though tummy tucks are incredibly popular, many patients don’t know exactly what this procedure does. While some fat is going to be removed during a tummy tuck, the primary goal of this operation is to contour the midsection. As an individual grows older, the soft tissue throughout the abdomen might begin to sag. Staying at a healthy weight can reduce one’s risk of sagging tissue, but there are other factors to consider as well. Sun damage, old surgeries, pregnancies, and genetics will all also impact the appearance of the stomach.
The purpose of a tummy tuck is to gently contour and reposition the soft tissue in order to create a slim, toned, and balanced appearance. In addition to removing some of the excess fat, we can also alter the underlying muscles. This operation is a great option for anyone who is struggling with sagging skin just below the belly button. Many patients have this procedure carried out because they want to get rid of excess skin after losing a significant amount of weight.
A Look at the Procedure
Every tummy tuck is slightly different, but these procedures usually follow the same few steps. When you arrive at the surgical center, we will clean and prep the treatment site. Our surgical team will then make an opening just below the waistline so we can remove some of the unnecessary soft tissue. We will also remove any sagging skin before sealing the opening to conclude the procedure.
Following Your Operation
Recovering from your procedure should be relatively easy as long as you pay attention to all of our aftercare instructions. Patients must usually recover in bed for at least a few days following a tummy tuck, and you may need assistance from someone during this time. During your follow-up appointment, we will clear you for all physical activities as long as there are no complications. Sticking to a solid exercise routine and following a nutritious diet will allow you to preserve the results for years.
