What Is a Tummy Tuck?
Pollard Plastic Surgery is an experienced practice that provides tummy tuck surgeries to residents of Ardmore, PA. If your tummy is perpetually pooched, then a tummy tuck might be just what the doctored ordered. Tummy tucks are the ideal procedure if your abdominal muscles are sagging or separated. The surgery will repair the muscles responsible for the flat, firm appearance of your midsection. The most common reason for a muscle separation is from pregnancy, but heredity, prior surgeries, or severe weight fluctuations can also lead to a sagging or bulging stomach regardless of diet and exercise. You’re a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you’re at a stable weight, are healthy and are otherwise physically fit.
How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
During your procedure, you’ll be put under general anesthesia or IV sedation. Dr. Pollard will then create an incision between your belly button and your pubic area. The size of the incision will be dependent upon how much extra skin is already present on your stomach. Dr. Pollard will lift up the skin and start to repair the muscles underneath. If significant excess skin is present, a second incision will be made near the navel to trim away the extra skin. Dr. Pollard will pull the skin back down and bring the belly button through the incision and adhere it to its new position before closing the incision. If you have abdominal fat, Dr. Pollard may remove this before closing the incision. You’ll be sent home in compression garments to help keep the swelling down and contour the skin. You might also have small drains put in place to drain excess fluid and prevent swelling.
