Tummy Tuck - Abdominoplasty Treatment

Search By Title
  Search By Speciality


If your tummy tuck is performed as an outpatient procedure, you will need to have another person drive you home and stay with you the first night following surgery.  You will receive general anesthesia or IV sedation depending upon the specific type of tummy tuck and your surgeon's suggestions.  Your surgeon will follow a predetermined incision pattern based on your specific needs (ie. a longer incision to remove more skin).
An incision is made horizontally above the pubic hairline.  The extent of the incision will depend on your body shape, skin elasticity and amount of excess or redundant skin.  Next, separated or weakened abdominal muscles are corrected.  Excess fat and tissue are surgically removed.  Depending upon the amount of excess fat, liposuction may be performed at the time of your procedure or at a separate procedure prior to the tummy tuck.  A second incision may be made around the navel to allow excess skin in the upper abdomen to be removed.  A temporary drainage tube may be placed to help prevent any fluid collection beneath the skin.  The incision is closed with sutures, surgical adhesive, surgical tape, or clips and bandaged.
Your dressings will be covered with elastic bandages or you will wear a compression garment to help reduce swelling, prevent fluid collections, and provide support while you heal.  It is important that you adhere to your specific self-care instructions.  You may not be able to stand completely upright for the first two weeks following your surgery.  It will also take a few weeks for swelling to resolve to reveal your new flatter and firmer abdomen.
