Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck

It’s most helpful for people who have recently had weight loss surgery and are left with large amounts of hanging skin on the lower belly.

In some cases, a tummy tuck can help alleviate incontinence and back pain .

With a tummy tuck, your doctor will cut out excess skin while also tightening abdominal muscles. While the surgery itself won’t give you six-pack abs, it will make it easier for you to build abdominal muscles on your own through exercise in the future.

A tummy tuck may be a good fit if you:

  • Are trying to get rid of “belly pooch” from a recent pregnancy
  • Have trouble getting rid of excess skin around the abdomen despite diet and exercise

  • Are in overall good health and are at a healthy weight

Duration: A tummy tuck may take  two to four hours  to complete.

Your initial recovery time requires at least 2-3 weeks and for a few days, you need to rest and have downtime. This is to reduce scarring and to avoid bruising and swelling.
