Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?
If you are bothered by the feeling that your belly is too large, then a tummy tuck may be a good decision for you. It is important to note, however, that a tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss through diet and exercise. Also, the procedure cannot correct stretch marks, but they may sometimes be removed or improved during the excision of your excess skin.
Reason To Have A Tummy Tuck
- Pregnancy or childbirth
- Significant weight loss
Dr. Abramson will make sure that you understand what is possible with a tummy tuck. Your initial consultation will include a comprehensive evaluation and a through explanation of the procedure.
About Tummy Tuck Surgery
When you undergo a full tummy tuck, your doctor will use general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The procedure starts with an incision that runs somewhat horizontally between the pubic hairline and the navel. The shape and length of the cut will depend on the extent of the operation. Through the incision, your tummy tuck surgeon will repair and suture the weakened abdominal muscles. Excess fat, tissue and skin will also be removed. At times, a second incision may be needed around the navel to excise extra skin in the upper abdomen.
