Tummy Tuck Tallahassee
Abdominoplasty, or a “tummy tuck,” is a surgical procedure to correct a protruding abdomen resulting from weak abdominal muscles, weight gain or pregnancy which can cause excess skin and stretched abdominal muscles that typically don’t respond to exercise. An abdominoplasty is not a substitute for weight loss.
With an abdominoplasty, the abdominal wall muscles are tightened and excess fatty tissue and skin are removed to improve the body contour. The goal is a narrower, flatter abdomen. A tummy tuck can be done in combination with liposuction to further define areas such as hips and lower back. The surgery typically takes 2-3 hours under general anesthesia.
Discomfort is associated with a tummy tuck. Drains are placed and left in for one week. Recovery time is 1-2 weeks and patients need to refrain from strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for one month.
If your goal is a narrower or flatter abdomen, please call our Tallahassee plastic surgery office at 850-219-2000 or contact our cosmetic coordinator today for a private consultation with our Tallahassee plastic surgery physicians Dr. Ben Kirbo and Dr. Laurence Rosenberg.
