Can I Get a Tummy Tuck?
Tummy tuck surgery can be successful for both men and women who cannot seem to lose or reduce loose or wrinkly skin in addition to stubborn fat in the lower abdomen. This surgical treatment can help you obtain a more toned physique. Dr. Mang suggests you be at a healthy weight prior to surgery. Your tummy tuck should not be a substitute for weight loss, as it treats loose skin. A form of liposuction will often be implemented during tummy tuck procedures to reduce fat. If your stomach area has healthy skin tightness, but you are still unhappy with the stubborn fat in your midsection even though you have worked to lose weight, you may be more suited for liposuction. Women considering this treatment should be past pregnancy to make sure the results are not affected.
How Does a Tummy Tuck Work?
Your tummy tuck will be performed using general anesthesia for your optimal comfort. Dr. Mang will consider numerous surgical options for your surgery. Depending on your current condition, the incision type is chosen based upon the amount of excess skin. If you need an extended tummy tuck, the incision will be from hip to hip, just above the pubic area. If you have minimal skin laxity, you may be better suited for a less invasive technique and will have a less expansive scar. Regardless, your tummy tuck at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery will involve the removal of loose skin and liposuction.
What Can I Expect After My Tummy Tuck?
After your tummy tuck surgery, one of our wonderful team members will monitor you before you are released home wearing a compression device to decrease swelling. Standing upright and walking will be hard for a bit so you should take it easy for a few days. Normal movement will become easier once your muscles relax and the incision heals, typically within two weeks. However, exercise should wait closer to eight weeks or when you are cleared by Dr. Mang to begin more strenuous activity. Your abdominal area will feel some discomfort and tightness as it heals, but you will look toned, tightened, and slimmed once your recovery is complete!
Tummy Tuck FAQs
How much does a tummy tuck cost?
During your consultation, Dr. Mang will develop your unique treatment plan based on your specific concerns and goals before estimating costs. He will be better able to estimate your costs when the type of tummy tuck has been decided, what technique will be used, what anesthesia you will need, and more. To ensure you get great results from an experienced surgeon, Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery makes it easier to afford your tummy tuck by accepting many payment methods and helping you find low-interest medical financing.
What type of tummy tuck should I get?
You will probably get one of the three main types of tummy tucks: full, mini, and extended. During your initial consultation, Dr. Mang will listen to your needs and goals before examining your stomach. Then, he can better decide which tummy tuck will give you the best results. A full tummy tuck is better if you would like to correct issues in the lower and upper stomach, while a mini abdominoplasty is better for concerns under your belly button, such as a "pooch." An extended tummy tuck can improve the abdomen as well as the upper thighs and hips.
What will my scars look like?
Surgical incisions for your tummy tuck will depend on which type you are getting. During all tummy tucks, Dr. Mang uses the smallest, thinnest incisions needed to limit scars. He also places incisions in less visible areas ( through the belly button or in the public region ) so they may be easily concealed by a swimsuit or underwear. After your tummy tuck, it is important to adhere to your scar management instructions so your sutures heal properly and eventually blend into your natural skin.
Can I get pregnant after a tummy tuck?
While you can still get pregnant after a tummy tuck, it will likely alter your results. Dr. Mang strongly encourages that you be finished with planned pregnancies and childbirth before you consider an abdominoplasty. If you do get pregnant after a tummy tuck, another surgery can be done to refresh your results.
Can I get a tummy tuck with another surgery?
Several patients get another cosmetic surgery with an abdominoplasty to give them more dramatic results. At your initial consultation with Dr. Mang, talk to him about all of your desires so a personalized treatment plan may be created to match your aesthetic goals. You might combine abdominoplasty with a thigh lift for a lower body lift or other areas for a custom body contouring. If you want to rejuvenate your whole body after having children or losing a lot of weight, you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover or after weight loss surgery.
