Tummy Tuck Q&A

What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes extra skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightens the skin, creating a flatter and more toned midsection. 

The team has a reputation for getting phenomenal results for tummy tucks. They customize treatment plans for optimal results while always taking into consideration patient safety and comfort. 

Who is a candidate for a tummy tuck?

You may be a candidate for a tummy tuck if you’re in good overall health and if you’re unable to tighten and tone your abdominal area with diet and exercise alone.

Women with plans for future pregnancies should postpone their tummy tuck until they’re all done having children. Pregnancy may separate the abdominal muscles, which can undo the tummy tuck procedure and affect your look.

You may also want to wait to have a tummy tuck if you’re in the process of losing weight.

What happens during a tummy tuck?

The highly skilled surgeons at Women's Health Institute customize your tummy tuck to match your specific aesthetic goals and body needs. This attention to detail is how the surgeons get such amazing results.

The team at Women's Health Institute performs what they call the mega abdominoplasty. During the procedure, your surgeon removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightens the abdominal muscles with a custom-made inner corset. 

This technique flattens and strengthens the abdominal muscles. After, your surgeon redistributes the excess skin to cover the abdomen, resulting in a smoother, tighter, and flatter midsection.

The team also performs a mini tummy tuck for people who only have excess skin in the lower abdominal area.

What can I expect when recovering from a tummy tuck?

The team at Women's Health Institute gives you detailed instructions to help you recover from your tummy tuck. You can expect some pain and swelling. To ease your discomfort, the team gives you a compression garment and pain medication.

You can expect some downtime following your tummy tuck. Your surgeon may recommend taking about two weeks off from work during recovery and refrain from lifting heavy items and strenuous activity for four or more weeks.
