Abdominoplasty or better known as a tummy tuck can remove access skin and fat, and almost always restores weak /separated muscles back into the abdominal profile, creating a firmer silhouette that is trim and smooth.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, involves removal of excess skin and fat from the front of the waist. An incision is placed at the bikini line, as the loose skin and fat deposits are removed surgically and discarded. The remaining skin is pulled down and sewn back together. The muscles are also tightened as well to create a flatter abdomen and contoured waistline.
Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for total body weight reduction. Diet and exercise are the best options for weight control. Rather, tummy tuck surgery is often complementary to weight reduction. Many patients diet and exercise to reduce their weight, only to have excess baggy skin and residual fat in the lower abdomen. For this problem, abdominoplasty remains the ideal solution.
Dr. Bennett C. Yang performs all tummy tuck procedures at a fully licensed and accredited out patient surgery center. The tummy tuck surgical procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete. A typical abdominoplasty includes removal of excess abdomen skin and fat, as well as tightening the abdomen muscles for a flatter tummy. Most patients take two weeks off of work to recover. Longer if the work requirements are strenuous. Please follow your post -op care instructions carefully as bloodclots can be a risk taken after receiving an abdominoplasty.
