Tummy Tuck: What Are your options?
UNDERSTANDING TUMMY TUCK
Even people with a healthy body weight can have a protruding tummy or loose, sagging skin. Heredity, pregnancies and significant weight loss or gain can contribute to this problem. A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightens the underlying muscles resulting in a flatter, tighter tummy.
During your initial consultation, one of our skilled surgeons will take the time to understand your goals, discuss realistic expectations and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. We can also help you visualize your results using our state-of-the-art computer imaging system. While the image is not an assurance of results, it will help you understand realistic surgical improvements.
Tummy Tuck: A Step-by-Step Look
YOUR TUMMY TUCK PROCEDURE
An abdominoplasty re-contours the entire abdomen. It is typically performed for men and women who have excess skin of the abdomen, loose abdominal musculature and excess fat. If you are healthy and your weight is relatively stable, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Omaha-area women who are done having children are particularly fond of the procedure because it can also get rid of stretch marks on the lower part of the belly.
Aesthetic Surgical Images performs tummy tuck surgery under general anesthesia. The primary incision runs horizontally across the lower abdomen, and is carefully placed so that it is covered by most swimsuits and undergarments. This allows your surgeon to repair weakened muscles and remove excess skin for a flatter, smoother tummy. A second incision is made around the navel, which is repositioned for a more natural result.
Many patients who choose tummy tuck surgery also have an Omaha liposuction procedure on their hips and waist for a more complete makeover. And, oftentimes, breast reduction, breast lift or breast augmentation for Omaha area moms completes their Mommy Makeover.
ENJOYING YOUR RESULTS
As a major surgery, our patients need to plan for several days of recovery time before they feel back to their usual selves. Following your post-surgical instructions will help to maximize comfort and results. Our patients consistently tell us that their new, slimmer shape has helped them look and feel great in their clothes and has renewed their self-confidence.
