About the Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty Procedure

After changes in weight and/or pregnancy, there may be excess belly fat and skin that cannot be tightened up, even with diet and exercise. At Fairbanks Art of Plastic Surgery, our Tummy Tuck is a popular cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen. Usually, the surgery will also realign separated muscles (the 6-pack), giving the abdominal area a more smooth and firm look.

Procedure Details

An incision is made in the lower abdominal crease during Tummy Tuck Surgery. Often a prior C-section scar can be removed at the same time. A circular incision is also made around the navel so this can be left in place while the skin and fat are lifted from the abdominal wall. The separated rectus abdominis muscles (the 6-pack) are pulled together with a series of strong sutures. The raised abdominal tissue is moved down so it can be removed with a low abdominal incision. The navel is brought through a new opening to give a natural appearance. Many of the lower abdominal stretch marks are removed during this operation.

After a Tummy Tuck, everyone is worried about pain. Pain medications are given to manage the discomfort. Excessive motion of the arms and heavy lifting are discouraged during the healing process. Minimal motion allows for the abdominals to heal properly. At least 1 week off of work is encouraged. Over the next year, as with breast reduction, the scars will mature and the redness will fade. While some are more resilient than others, overall recovery is dependent on the individual. Either way, the end result includes tighter and more lean abdominals but more importantly, we find happy and satisfied patients.

Expectations After A

Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty

Instructions are given after the surgery to guide activities and limitations. Strenuous activities and aerobic exercise is discouraged for the first 6 weeks; thereafter, usual activities may be resumed.


Overall, the Tummy Tuck patient can expect satisfaction with her more toned core and youthful appearance.

Results

The results from the Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty Procedure are satisfying and can provide desirable results for years to come. However, as with any other surgery, the results may vary with each patient.


Just the same, the Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty Procedure can provide a wonderful result, significantly improved core strength, and a positive outlook on life. This procedure can become a game-changer for the Mom's out there who have worked out for years to learn that no amount of working out can repair the splayed muscles from some people pregnancies.


A healthy lifestyle is encouraged so that one can continue with an overall better and younger-looking appearance. We always recommend proper diet and regular exercise which will increase their quality of life. This also decreases the unwanted weight gain which usually shows up in places that we least desire. The Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty Procedure at Fairbanks Plastic Surgery can keep that person feeling better about their appearance especially in photographs.


Dr. Fairbanks will work with you to create a plan for your Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty Procedure to make you as attractive and proportional as possible using the most advanced methods of both art and medical science.
