What is a tummy tuck?

For both men and women, loose, wrinkly skin and pockets of fat in the abdominal area can be frustrating because they seem to defy all efforts to get rid of them. Significant weight loss, childbirth, and aging are typical reasons why a person may not be able to achieve a slim and tight stomach through diet and exercise alone. At the Modern Plastic Surgery & Medspa, New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters uses abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, to help both women and men tighten the skin of the abdominal area with dramatic outcomes for a leaner, slimmer look. If you want to tighten sagging skin in your stomach area and reduce unwanted fat for a renewed, trim look, a tummy tuck may be right for you.

who is a candidate for a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck is a great option for both women and men. Ideal candidates for a tummy tuck:

  • Are at a normal, healthy weight
  • Have loose or wrinkly skin around the stomach area
  • Have stubborn, pesky pockets of fat
  • Aren't seeing results with diet or exercise
  • Want a slimmer, more toned look
  • Are women who have finished having children

how is a tummy tuck performed?

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is performed with the patient under general anesthesia. There are several surgical options that come into consideration for this surgery. To start, the incision shape and size are determined based on the quantity of excess skin. Some individuals with an abundance of hanging skin might benefit best from an extended tummy tuck, which makes the incision along the lower abdomen from hip to hip, just on top of the pubic bone. People who have minimal excess skin and wrinkling may be better candidates for a less invasive technique. Men and women who receive this treatment can still benefit from an abdominoplasty, but will simply have a less expansive scar. Regardless of how it is performed, all abdominoplasty procedures at Dr. Jules Walters involve the removal of loose, hanging skin and liposuction for a tighter, leaner stomach.

how long is recovery after a tummy tuck?

When your tummy tuck is completed, you will be carefully examined and sent home wearing a compression garment to decrease swelling. You may have discomfort and soreness and standing upright and walking may be difficult for a while, so you should take it easy for several days. Resuming normal movement will become less painful once the abdominal muscles adjust and the incision heals. You can generally resume a normal routine around two weeks after your surgery. In 4 - 6 weeks you can typically resume your workout routine if you are given permission by Dr. Walters.
