Tummy Tuck

Individuals with a loose or sagging abdominal wall, which is frequently associated with relaxation of the anterior abdominal wall muscles due to multiple pregnancies or surgery, may want to consider a tummy tuck. Other tummy tuck patients undergo the surgery, because the abdominal wall skin cannot be tightened with exercise. A smoother and flatter abdomen can be achieved with a tummy tuck. Additional procedures that may enhance the result are liposuction, breast procedures, or thigh lift. We also offer a non-surgical procedure called CoolSculpting. 


How is a tummy tuck performed?

A tummy tuck is usually performed under anesthesia typically in an outpatient setting. The procedure includes the tightening of abdominal skin through a low abdominal incision. 

Recovery after a tummy tuck

Initial discomfort is controlled with oral medication. Walking and moving regularly within 1 to 2 days is encouraged. Light activity will become comfortable in 10 to 20 days. Participation in sports is painful for the first 6 weeks.

Insurance Guidelines

Because this surgery is cosmetic, it's not covered by insurance and is paid by the patient. The cost of a tummy tuck can be determined during a consultation with one of our surgeons.
