A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a popular surgical procedure for people with loose and sagging stomach tissue. This procedure is often sought after by women after pregnancy or after significant weight loss. During a tummy tuck, the plastic surgeon removes the excess skin and fatty tissue to tighten the abdomen. At Riverside Plastic Surgery Associates, Dr. Ben Childers performs abdominoplasty for patients in Riverside, Ontario and throughout the Inland Empire.
The exact procedure for abdominoplasty varies, depending on the cosmetic surgeon in Riverside. The procedure is generally performed in various stages and subdivided into categories. The time required for surgery depends on the scope of the procedure. For a partial tummy tuck, the surgery takes from one to two hours, while a full tummy tuck takes between one and five hours.
Tummy tuck can be combined with other procedures to get a specific benefit. The lower body lift cosmetic surgery includes tummy tuck, liposuction and breast reduction or breast augmentation.
The time required for recovery varies, depending on the patient and the procedure, but is usually from one week to one month. Most plastic surgeons recommend that Riverside tummy tuck patients take time off from work and avoid heavy activity during the recovery period to allow the body to fully heal. Patients can wear a special garment, if they experience bruising and discomfort during recovery. In addition, patients must not use any form of nicotine before the surgery and during recovery from abdominoplasty.
As tummy tuck surgeons and their patients can attest, abdominoplasty is effective for enhancing the self confidence, as well as the appearance. The cost involved for a tummy tuck varies according to several factors. The total cost of the procedure, including medications and follow up appointments needs to be taken into consideration.
