Tummy Tucks

Would you like to have a flatter, tighter and more contoured abdomen, fit better in clothing and be able to wear smaller sizes?
Tummy tucks or abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to reshape and firm the abdomen. It involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is usually sought by women (who are not considering having any more children) and individuals who have abdominal fat deposits which do not respond well to diet and exercise.
Tummy tucks may provide a highly effective, immediate solution in the treatment of stubborn abdominal areas. In short, tummy tucks may dramatically tighten the abdominal muscles as well as remove sagging, excess skin and accumulated fatty tissue. As an added benefit of the tummy tuck, not only will the abdominal region

be firmer and flatter, but the waist will be smaller as well. [Pullout:

] While the degree of improvement varies significantly depending on the magnitude of the abdominoplasty surgery, other factors contribute to the surgical outcome such as the patient's skin tone, body build, and the individual healing process. Aside from these issues, most patients are happy with the results offered through abdominoplasty and maintain a more favorable body image following the surgery. Abdominoplasty is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes two to three hours. The patient usually must spend one to several nights in the hospital. When discharging a patient, a tummy tuck surgeon prescribe oral pain medication to control typically mild to moderate pain. The patient also is given an abdominal binder to provide support while healing.
