What is Tummy Tuck?

Many of us want to have a tight and well-toned abdomen. However, it’s challenging to achieve this goal, even if you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. The midsection can be loose and sagging due to aging, pregnancy, significant weight changes, and previous surgeries. If you want to get rid of excess skin or flab in your abdomen, this is your last stop!

Located in Rolling Hills Plaza, Skin Works offers a variety of body contouring treatments, including tummy tuck surgeries. Our team of experienced surgeons can customize this procedure to fit your unique needs and transform your entire physique.

Sometimes you will be surprised to know that you don’t have to undergo surgery! That’s why we strongly recommend everyone to book a consultation before opting in for any invasive options. Rest assured, we go over your options and find what’s best for YOU.

 

 

What is a Tummy Tuck Surgery?

 

Also known as abdominoplasty, this treatment can improve a loose, stretched stomach with weakened muscles. This surgical procedure removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen while muscles are usually tightened with sutures.

A tummy tuck creates a firmer, smoother, and more toned abdominal profile. It can be done with other body contouring cosmetic procedures, like liposuction, to enhance your midsection look. The benefits you’ll get from this surgery include:

 

  • 1- Flatter stomach

  • 2- Tighter muscles

  • 3- Improved skin tone

  • 4- Reduced stubborn fat (with liposuction)

  • 5- Naturally repositioned belly button

  • 6- Elimination or improvement of stretch marks

 

 

What’s the Difference Between a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction?

 

Tummy tuck and liposuction aim to improve your midsection area’s appearance, making it flatter and tighter. However, these surgical procedures have fundamental differences. A tuck involves more intensive procedures to remove excess skin and reconstruct the abdominal muscles. It is ideal for people with stubborn fat in their midsection that cannot be fixed with diet and exercise.

Meanwhile, liposuction is a less invasive procedure that removes small fat deposits. It can be done on almost any body part with excess fat, including the stomach, thighs, hips, buttocks, legs, back, and arms.

 

Are You a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

 

Generally, you may be a good candidate for tummy tuck surgery if you meet most of the following criteria.

 

  • 1- Your abdominal area has significant skin and muscle laxity

  • 2- You have excess fat in your midsection despite having a healthy lifestyle

  • 3- You are concerned by the appearance of your abdomen

  • 4- You are physically healthy with a stable weight

  • 5- You have no other medical conditions

  • 6- You are a nonsmoker

  • 7- You have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure

 

Your surgeon will evaluate your medical history and aesthetic goals during your consultation to determine if a tummy tuck is ideal for you. Then, we will provide all the information you need to help you make an informed decision. This includes everything from financing options to pre and post-surgery care and instructions for a fast recovery.

 

Which Tuck is Right for You?

 

The correct tummy tuck procedure depends on your cosmetic goals, body type, amount of excess skin, and underlying anatomy. Our surgeons ensure that every procedure is tailored to the patient’s needs and body type. Below are some of your options.

Full Tummy Tuck

 

If there’s a significant amount of loose skin in your abdomen, a full tuck serves you better. It involves removing excess skin and repositioning the belly button.

The surgeon will make incisions extending below the navel and the pubic bone. Then, the remaining skin will be pulled down over your stomach after tightening the abdominal muscles with internal sutures.

Mini Tummy Tuck

 

Mini tummy tucks are only suitable for patients with less skin that needs to be removed. A mini tuck is ideal if you have a relatively firm upper abdomen and want tighter skin below your belly button.

A mini tummy tuck involves a shorter lower incision and faster recovery time than a full tuck. It also requires a four to eight inches scar above the pubic region without repositioning the navel and removing excess skin.

 

Extended Tummy Tuck

 

Extended tucks are often performed as part of circumferential body lifts for people who achieve massive weight loss, especially after a gastric bypass procedure.

This technique removes excess skin and tissue from a wider area around the abdomen. Furthermore, an extended tuck involves a round incision to higher reposition the belly button.

 

How Much Is a Tummy Tuck?

 

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost is around $7000, which excludes the anesthesia cost. The final price varies widely depending on the clinic, location, surgeon, type of procedure, and other surgical expenses.

We will discuss all the available options during your consultation to help you decide. Once you and your surgeon have determined the best course of treatment, we will provide you with an estimated final cost. If you rather finance your surgery, we offer financing options too. Your consultants can go over your options after your consultation.

 

Is a Tummy Tuck Safe?

 

As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks associated with a tummy tuck. However, it is generally safe and well-tolerated by most patients. The surgeon will discuss and explain all the possible risks before you undergo surgery. We are proud to have a 100% success record!

At Skin Works Medical Spa, we prioritize your health and safety. You can rest assured that our surgical team will perform the tummy tuck procedure with great care and the most advanced equipment in a world-class setting.  We use the most advanced equipment and techniques to achieve great results and minimize potential risks. During and after the surgery, you will be monitored to ensure optimal healing and faster recovery.

 

Does Tummy Tuck Leave Scars?

 

A tummy tuck surgery can leave a scar along the incision line. Although scars are visible after the procedure, their appearance will continue to improve over time. Our highly skilled surgeons will carefully make the incisions to minimize scarring and speed up healing. Keep in mind that a person’s genetics, skin tone, quality, and lifestyle can impact the look of scarring. Some people are more prone to having noticeable scars than others.

However, you can take measures to help minimize the appearance of scars. These include following your surgeon’s instructions before and after a tummy tuck and avoiding unhealthy habits like smoking. At Skin Works, we have a variety of scar removal options, and all our surgery patients can enjoy special prices to get rid of any surgery scars post-recovery.

 

How Long Does It Take To Recover From a Tummy Tuck?

 

In general, it takes around eight weeks to recover from the surgery. But, the tummy tuck recovery time will vary for each individual, depending on the following factors:

 

  • 1- Age of the patient

  • 2- Patient’s general health

  • 3- Type of tummy tuck procedure performed

  • 4- Postsurgical care

 

Since a tummy tuck is an outpatient procedure for most patients, you can go home the same day. Here are some general guidelines to guide you during your recovery:

 

  • 1- Your midsection will feel sore for the first few days while swelling and bruising can last several weeks. The surgeon will provide prescribed medication to manage the pain.

  • 2- During the first week, the surgeon will leave a drain on the incision site to prevent excessive fluid build-up. You will also need to wear a compression garment on your abdomen for the first four weeks.

  • 3- You can do walking and light exercise after the first week, but you need to avoid strenuous activities or heavy lifting for up to six weeks.

  • 4- If your job isn’t strenuous, you can return to work after two to three weeks.

 

At Skin Works Medical Spa, we want you to have a safe and comfortable recovery. Our surgical team ensures that you receive continuous care after surgery through follow-up visits and post-surgery instructions.

 

How Long Does a Tummy Tuck Last?

 

Your tummy tuck before and after changes may be obscured by swelling for several weeks. But, as your abdomen heals and adjusts from the surgery, you can expect results to be more or less permanent. The tummy tuck can give you a firmer, flatter tummy that is more proportionate with your body weight and type. You can sustain these results by maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle, a stable weight, and a nutritious diet.

 

Can You Have a Baby After a Tummy Tuck?

 

Ideally, women should get a tummy tuck after pregnancy to trim the excess fat and skin from childbirth. However, since it is a cosmetic procedure, you can still have children after the surgery. Tummy tucks do not affect a woman’s ability to get pregnant. But in some cases, pregnancy may affect the results of tummy tuck surgery.

Our team at Skin Works Medical can help you determine the best steps to take if you’re considering this option. We can provide you with the information and resources you need regarding pregnancy after a tummy tuck.
