RAbdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a Tummy Tuck, is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure used to tighten overly stretched abdominal muscles and skin in an effort to achieve a smoother, flatter appearance.

What is the long term effect of a tummy tuck ?

For most tummy tuck patients, the long-term results associated with the procedure are excellent. Issues such as keeping ones weight relatively constant, eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly and carefully following the surgeon's instructions regarding physical activity, etc., determine the overall effect associated with a tummy tuck.

What are the benefits of a Tummy Tuck ?

A tummy tuck may provide a highly effective, immediate solution in the treatment of stubborn abdominal areas. 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. Most patients are happy with the results offered through abdominoplasty and maintain a more favorable body image following the surgery.

What are the risks and limitations of a Tummy Tuck ?

All surgical procedures, including the tummy tuck, have potential risks associated with their performance. Basic risks include little bleeding, potential reaction to the anesthetic, and infection. Some scaring is to be expected with a tummy tuck.

Scars will become lighter and flatter with time. Smoking may increase the risk of complications and may delay healing.

What are post operative cares ?

It is likely that the patient will experience some pain and discomfort which may be controlled by various pain medications.

In an effort to reduce any pain and discomfort associated with a tummy tuck, it is common that two to three days of bed rest is recommended. Deeper sutures with ends that protrude through the skin, those used at deeper levels under the skin, will come out in two to three weeks.
