ABDOMINOPLASTY / TUMMY TUCK
Occasionally the belly and skin are looser than we would like it to be. In these cases a tummy tuck is appropriate. Loose skin and fat are trimmed. Depending on the looseness of the abdominal skin different amounts of tightening can be accomplished . Stretch marks and scars extending above the belly button are improved by removing the excess stretched skin below the belly button. Typically post operative pain is mild: healing takes 1 to 2 weeks. Significant improvements can be seen by this time, and scars fade over 4 to 12 months.
