If you’re unhappy with your midsection due to excess skin, stretch marks, or weakened abdominal muscles after pregnancy or significant weight loss, you’re a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Dr. Lalezar uses cutting-edge surgical techniques to tighten your abdominal muscles and help you achieve a firm, taut, and chiseled tummy.
Restore A Firm & Chiseled Abdomen
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is designed to tighten and tone the abdominal muscles and remove excess skin and fat from the stomach. The procedure involves making a strategic incision on the abdomen to trim away excess skin, remove excess fat deposits, and tighten underlying abdominal muscles, helping you achieve a firm and chiseled tummy. This procedure can reverse the effects of age, childbirth, and weight loss on the tummy.
The Goals of Tummy Tuck:
- Removing excess skin and fat from the abdominal area
- Tightening the abdominal muscles to create a firmer, more toned appearance
- Improving the appearance of stretch marks
- Improving the appearance of a protruding or sagging belly
- Enhancing the overall shape and contours of the abdomen
Your Recovery Journey
After your tummy tuck, you must rest and allow your body to heal. You may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medications. Please follow the post-operative instructions carefully to ensure a smooth and successful recovery. You may have to wear compression garments to control swelling, take medications, and avoid strenuous exercises for 6 to 8 weeks. You can resume low-level activities or work after a week.
Tummy Tuck + Abdominal Liposuction
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess fat from specific areas of the body using a hollow cannula. The cannula is inserted through small incisions in the skin, and the excess fat is suctioned out. Liposuction can be combined with a tummy tuck to improve the overall results. Liposuction is performed before the tummy tuck to remove excess fat from the abdominal area, making it easier to tighten the muscles and remove excess skin, leading to a smoother and more contoured appearance.
