A Tummy Tuck can help get rid of flabby skin after weight loss, childbirth or other causes of weak or stretched muscles and skin.
If your skin is unable to bounce back on its own, a Tummy Tuck may help you get a tighter abdomen. You’ll likely feel better and more comfortable without the excess skin and you’ll feel more confident in a swimsuit.
Weight gain and weight loss, pregnancy, and the natural process of aging can sometimes cause the skin and muscles in your midsection to stretch and hang out. Tummy Tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, restores the shape and contour of your abdomen to give you a firmer, more youthful appearance.
At Swan Centers, we use the latest abdominoplasty techniques to reduce excess skin, tighten underlying muscles, and remove fatty tissue as needed to achieve the desired outcome with minimal downtime. During your initial complimentary consultation, the doctor will discuss your cosmetic goals. She will then develop a personalized treatment plan for optimal results.
People who are good candidates for the surgery are physically healthy, at a stable weight and are nonsmokers. You should also have realistic expectations and discuss your goals with your doctor.
It is important that you follow the post-surgery instructions. You should rest and relax at home for at least a week. Avoid strenuous exercise for at least a month, or as long as your doctor recommends. You should not bend or lift, but you should try to get up and move around soon after surgery to help improve blood flow.
While some benefits will be noticeable immediately, the final results will be more apparent about three months post-surgery. The incision scar should also continue to improve in appearance over time.
Your doctor will go over all the details and create a personal plan for the procedure and recovery.
