Often we get patients who are struggling with stubborn fatty deposits in various parts of their body despite being fit and at their ideal weight. When this unwanted fat is in your abdominal area, whether due to massive weight loss or pregnancy, it can be frustrating. Not only are you riddled with excessive skin and fat, some patients may even find that their underlying abdominal muscles have also separated and it is impossible to get the tummy back in shape without surgical intervention. If you are also facing these concerns with your tummy, schedule a consultation with Dr. Erella and he will strive to get you the desirable contours with the tummy tuck procedure.
Who is a good candidate for a tummy tuck?
You must be in good physical and emotional health, be near your ideal weight, and not be suffering from any pre-existing medical issues such as diabetes or heart disease. Dr. Erella will evaluate your abdominal area to determine whether a tummy tuck is a right procedure for you. This is important to make sure you have realistic expectations from the procedure and we can help you get the intended results.
In certain cases, it is best for you to wait before getting a tummy tuck. This is especially true when you are deciding to have more children in the near future since it will stretch your abdomen and alter your tummy tuck results. When you wish to lose weight in the future, you must again delay your decision to undergo the tummy tuck until you are at your ideal weight.
What can you expect during your tummy tuck?
The tummy tuck is a highly customizable procedure allowing Dr. Erella to perform one of the following techniques depending on the severity of your condition:
- Mini abdominoplasty – this is the right choice for you when you have a small amount of fat located below the navel. Small incisions will be made above the pubic area to remove the excessive fat and skin and your abdominal muscles will be tightened.
- Full abdominoplasty – this is the technique Dr. Erella will choose when you have a moderate amount of fat and excess skin in the abdominal area. The incisions made during this will be above the pubic area and around your navel, allowing the removal of the excessive fat and skin before the underlying muscles are tightened. Dr. Erella may also use liposuction to enhance your results.
- Extended abdominoplasty – when you have undergone massive weight loss and are left with loose skin and fatty deposits, Dr. Erella will recommend the extended tummy tuck. During this, one incision will be made above the pubic area extending around your hips and another one will be around the navel. Once the excess skin and fat are removed and the abdominal muscles are tightened, your navel will be repositioned onto your new abdominal contours.
What results can you expect?
After your tummy tuck surgery, there might be soreness, bruising, and discomfort but Dr. Erella will give you medication and specific aftercare instructions to ensure you have a smooth recovery. Once you begin to see your results, you will find that the flabby skin and side bulges are gone and you can enjoy your slimmer and toned abdomen.
