Frequently Asked Questions

You may be a candidate for a tummy tuck if you are a non-smoker with excess abdominal skin – perhaps due to significant weight loss or pregnancy – and you are currently at a stable weight. You’ll also need a pre-surgical consultation to ensure that you have realistic expectations of your outcome.
You’ll prepare for your abdominoplasty with lab work and pre-operative instructions that may prevent you from taking certain medications leading up to your surgery or eating and drinking on the day of the procedure. Your doctor will administer IV sedation or general anesthesia at the start of the procedure for your comfort. A horizontal incision will be made along your pubic hairline, where the excess fat, skin and tissues are removed. The abdominal muscles are sutured and repaired before the incision is finally closed and sutured shut.
Swelling is normal following a tummy tuck, so your final results will not be visible until several weeks after the procedure. When you awake, you’ll be wearing compression garments to support healing and reduce swelling. You’ll be instructed to avoid certain physical activity in the weeks following your procedure. Your doctor will give you personalized instructions for at-home care and schedule return visits to your surgeon’s office to monitor your progress and remove
