What Is a Tummy Tuck?
In abdominoplasty surgery, or a tummy tuck, our plastic surgeon, Dr. Emily Pollard, will flatten the abdomen by getting rid of loose skin and excessive amounts of fat. The skin and muscles are then tightened within the wall of the abdomen. Dr. Pollard may also remove stretch marks along the lower abdomen. The surgery is common among post-pregnancy patients and after substantial weight loss, such as with after gastric bypass surgery.
How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
Dependent upon the particulars involving your procedure, the surgery can generally take one to six hours. The complexity associated with your particular body contouring needs will also be a factor in whether the procedure is performed in an inpatient or outpatient setting.
In the tummy tuck procedure, your abdomen receives an incision from your hipbone across to the other hipbone. The incision is made around the same location as your pubic line.
Dr. Pollard will operate and contour your abdomen skin, the surrounding tissue, and your muscle as required. Your navel may be relocated during the procedure, and drainage tubes are likely positioned underneath the skin. Any tubes used are removed several days following the procedure.
