Tummy tuck is a versatile plastic surgery procedure to restore slim contours
Fast recovery abdominoplasty with laser liposuction under local anesthesia
Dr. Dass has a customized procedure to help patients who’ve found their skin isn’t bouncing back after significant weight loss or the birth of a child. The tummy tuck, a plastic surgery procedure known scientifically as “abdominoplasty,” restores curves or helps patients who’ve never been confident about their physique.
Best way to reduce belly fat with tummy tuck surgery
You may be among those plagued by a paunch, despite rigorous exercise and excellent nutrition. A variation on the “traditional” tummy tuck may be recommended. The “mini tuck” targets the lower abdominal region between the tissues covering your pubic bones and your belly button. The procedure involves making a small incision between the hipbones, which allows Dr. Dass, to tighten the underlying muscles and remove excess skin. Liposuction techniques may remove fat for optimal results before the incision is closed.
A full tummy tuck involves making incisions to remove tissues between your belly button and pubic area, and tightening the fascia over the abdominal muscles with sutures. Unlike the mini alternative in which the belly button remains untouched, full abdominoplasty also repositions the skin around the belly button and brings it through a tiny incision that is then sutured back in its normal position. The hip-to-hip incision is closed, and the remaining scar is well-concealed along the natural crease in the bikini line. As with its mini counterpart, liposuction can be used to get desirable contours and remove excess.
Recovery from tummy tuck surgery
- Since the mini procedure is smaller in scope, patients enjoy a quicker recovery and can get back to normal activities in about a week.
- Dr. Dass encourages early walking with most procedures to prevent complications, but you may not return strenuous physical activity for around four to six weeks after the full procedure.
- If patients have any concerns about their recovery, they are encouraged to contact their doctor for an evaluation or for further information.
