- Restores sagging skin and stretch marks
- Corrects relaxed muscles
A firm, flat abdomen can dramatically affect overall bodily appearance, is considered attractive, and can increase self-confidence. Unfortunately, in reality it is not always easy to achieve through diet and exercise alone, with factors including pregnancy, significant weight loss, and the process of aging all leaving the abdominal muscles stretched, loose, and with sagging skin around the midriff.
FacePlus’s tummy tuck procedure will remove excess skin and fat, and tighten the loose abdominal muscles.
How is the tummy tuck performed?
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure to remove excess fat and skin and restore stretched or separated abdominal muscles to create a flatter, firmer, smoother abdominal profile. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia to ensure a totally pain free procedure.
Dr. Kim, FacePlus’s body contouring specialist, makes a horizontal incision from hip to hip (full incision) or shorter incision about C-section length (mini incision) just above your pubic area. An additional incision around your navel might be required depending on the degree of rectification required.
The skin is detached from underlying tissues and the abdominal muscles are tightened with sutures before the excess skin and fat are trimmed. Finally, the incision is neatly closed with sutures and the abdomen wrapped with sterile bandages, and possibly an elastic garment to aid skin adherence to the underlying tissues. Depending on the type of tummy tuck, most patients can return to work and normal activities approximately 10 days after surgery, although strenuous activities should be avoided throughout the full healing period of 6 to 8 weeks.
Tummy Tuck can benefit:
- Women who are left with excess skin and stretch marks after giving birth
- Men and women who have lost a lot of weight and are left with excess skin
- Women who are left with a C-section scar and excess skin that hangs over it
