What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, also called an abdominoplasty, is a body sculpting technique that is used to produce a firm, flat and toned appearance in the abdomen. This is a popular treatment for women who develop stubborn fat and sagging skin through pregnancy, as a tummy tuck can reverse these changes in and around the stomach. Additionally, however, the tummy tuck is an effective option for any patient who might be struggling with excess skin and the effects of weight gain or weight loss in the abdominal region. The tummy tuck removes both skin and fat while tightening the abdominal muscles for predictable and long-lasting results.
How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?
To determine the cost of your tummy tuck treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Banks’ team. During your consultation, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment. In an effort to make this and other treatments as affordable as possible, we offer flexible financing options.
What is the Tummy Tuck Treatment Like?
The tummy tuck procedure is performed with general anesthesia to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the surgery. All tummy tuck procedures are performed at our local surgery center. To perform the surgery, incisions will be made in the belly button and along the bikini line, both of which will be well-hidden. Once incisions are made, excess skin and fat will be removed. Then, the abdominal muscles will be tightened and the incisions will be sealed to finalize your results.
What Can I Expect After the Tummy Tuck Treatment?
After a tummy tuck, you will need to take at least one to two weeks off of work and other activities. During this time, you can expect swelling, bruising and discomfort throughout the abdominal region. These symptoms are most severe within the first week, but we will provide you with a prescription for pain medication and clear guidelines to make your recovery as comfortable as possible. Patients can expect to be fully healed about 6 to 8 weeks after their surgery.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from My Tummy Tuck?
The results from a tummy tuck will be visible immediately, and will become more noticeable as the body heals and any side effects fade. Tummy tuck results are permanent, as the skin and fat removed during surgery will not come back after treatment. However, a tummy tuck will not prevent changes from occurring in the future due to changes in weight. For this reason, we encourage patients to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits to ensure that their results last as long as possible.
