TUMMY TUCK

Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty) – Scottsdale and Phoenix, AZ

OVERVIEW

Despite a healthy lifestyle and diet, some men and women still have trouble achieving a flat, toned abdominal area. Our plastic and reconstructive surgeons, Dr. Rozbeh Torabi and Dr. Radbeh Torabi, perform abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, for patients who want tighter, smoother abs. A tummy tuck removes the excess loose skin and fat in the midsection with an incision made from hip bone to hip bone (along the pubic line) to tighten the abdominal wall, create a flatter abdominal profile, and improve figure proportion.

If excess skin needs to be removed, a second incision can be made around the navel for skin excision. Any skin on the lower abdomen with stretch marks can also be removed at this time to improve the skin’s appearance. We provide consultations in our Elite Plastic Surgery office in Arizona to discuss the type of tummy tuck your situation requires and if other procedures may or may not be needed to accomplish your aesthetic goals. We will discuss your body concerns and what you hope to achieve from tummy tuck surgery before creating your best treatment plan. Every patient is different, so results and surgical techniques may vary from patient to patient.

DO I QUALIFY?

The best candidates for tummy tuck surgery are men and women in good health and who are at or near their desired weight. Tummy tuck surgery should not be used as a form of weight loss, but as a means to tone the midsection after having already met your weight loss goals. Good candidates for tummy tucks are men or women who have:

ABDOMINOPLASTY SURGERY PROCEDURE

During the procedure and under a general anesthetic, the plastic surgeon will usually make a horizontal incision to remove excess fat and tissue from the abdomen. The fascia (the tissue beneath the skin) will be tightened and should the belly button require moving, it will be brought out through a small incision and repositioned. Excess skin will also be removed and the incision along the pubic area will be stitched. The result of this procedure is a minor scar that falls along the bikini line for easy coverage. Patients can expect the procedure to take approximately 2 – 5 hours, depending on their aesthetic goals and surgery type.

RECOVERY TIME AND HEALING

Tummy tuck surgery requires gradual recovery. Patients will need to undergo a post-operative care program, and will likely experience the following:

RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS

Complications with tummy tucks are uncommon when a post-operative care program is correctly followed. It is vital to remain moderately active after your surgery, and not to retreat to bed as the blood circulation requires stimulation. This is to avoid complications, such as a hematoma, which is a collection of blood underneath the skin that will require surgical removal. Any scarring created by the incisions will be in areas that can be covered with choice of undergarments and swimwear, with these gradually fading over time. Fluid can occasionally build up around the incision area. which must be drained off to prevent an infection or discomfort. Some patients who are slow to heal may have a lack of sensation or a numb patch in the tummy area. In order to avoid risks, patients must follow these post-treatment practices.

FLATTER, TONED ABS
