What Is a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck in Fort Worth, TXFor some individuals, all the proper exercise and nutrition in the world will not reduce stubborn fatty deposits in the abdomen and waist. These unattractive bulges can result from significant weight loss, stretched skin and muscles after pregnancy, or simply aging. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can help you achieve a slimmer, more toned, and more proportional figure, which in turn improves self-image. Our clients love the sleek, youthful profile that results from a tummy tuck.

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

A traditional tummy tuck involves two discrete incisions, one of which is below the bikini line that permits the removal of excess skin and tissue. The remaining skin, muscle and tissue are pulled taut and sutured together to create a firmer abdomen and narrower waist. The navel may be moved as needed for a younger look.

In cases that require a less dramatic difference, Dr. Lavine may recommend a mini-abdominoplasty, rather than the full procedure. This option uses only one incision and requires a shorter recovery time. During your consultation, Dr. Lavine will work with you to determine which option fits your needs and helps you look your best.

What Can I Expect During Recovery from a Tummy Tuck?

Depending on the extent of your surgery, full recovery could take anywhere between two weeks to a few months. Most patients return to work after 10-14 days and can resume most of their normal activities after just a few weeks. Normal exercise regimen and vigorous activity can be resumed after six weeks.

The outcome of a tummy tuck can be diminished by future weight gain or pregnancy. However, with a balanced, nutritious diet and a proper exercise regimen, the rejuvenated results can last for years.
