Tummy tuck procedure is a major surgical procedure that involves an incision from hip to hip.
Patients should expect the outer incision to heal for about two to three weeks. Avoid doing strenuous physical activities for at least four to six weeks.
Dr. Godat is an experienced surgeon helping patients achieve their dream body shape for over 25 years.
Knowing that tummy tuck can leave a permanent scar, he finds the right area to place the incision to avoid it from being seen on clothing.
We also use cutting-edge laser technology to shorten the length of recovery downtime and reduce the visibility of scars.
Although a tummy tuck is done to remove loose excess skin in the abdominal region, a tummy tuck may hide unwanted scars such as pregnancy stretch marks, C-section scars, and hysterectomy. The skin in your abdominal region could be corrected when a tummy tuck is done to tone your abdominal muscles for a slimmer, flawless look.
Apart from the aesthetic benefits of a tummy tuck which restores the pre-pregnancy or pre-bloating shape of your abdomen, a tummy tuck also helps with muscle repair that may help you get rid of back pain and urinary incontinence after pregnancies.
Males can also benefit from a tummy tuck, helping them get toned, firmer abdominal muscles, and enjoy being active in physical activities without the loose, excess skin.
There is no aspect of abdominoplasty surgery that impedes a woman’s ability to conceive,. Your future pregnancy will likely stretch your abdominal muscles and skin, which can be solved with tummy tuck surgery.
Research also shows that tummy tuck surgeries can help you improve back pain and urinary incontinence that comes after a previous pregnancy.
