What is a Tummy Tuck?
At Dr. David M. Turner's office in Austin, TX, a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a highly sought-after procedure for patients who want a tighter, flatter stomach. A tummy tuck can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks on your lower abdomen.
There are several reasons why patients throughout Texas consider having abdominoplasty. These include:
• Loose layers of skin or fat following pregnancy
• Significant weight loss
• Following successful surgery for weight loss
Dr. Turner and his dedicated staff understand the dissatisfaction that many people feel when they are unable to look good in their clothes or swimwear. A tummy tuck can change a patient’s life. If you are looking for top-notch abdominoplasty skills, then please contact Dr. Turner at his Austin office today. He encourages men and women from Austin, San Marcos, Round Rock and surrounding areas to come and discuss their tummy tuck goals with him.
How is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
At the start of a tummy tuck, Dr. Turner will make an incision along the bikini line in women and just under the stomach for men, to disguise the scar in the natural crease of the skin. The skin is then lifted, and he can remove the required amount of tissue and also tighten the abdominal muscles if necessary. Often, our patients in Austin will have liposuction along with their abdominoplasty.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
Of the many men and women who come to see our professionals in Austin, the individuals who opt for abdominoplasty usually fit at least one of the following criteria:
• They are in relatively good physical shape, but have excess skin or fat in the abdominal area that is resistant to exercise.
• They are experiencing laxity of underlying muscles due to pregnancy. For these women, the skin and muscles have stretched beyond the point where they can naturally return to their normal location and shape.
• They have lost a lot of weight through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery and have excess skin in the abdominal area.
The normal aging process can also cause skin to sag or lose elasticity, making many older patients excellent tummy tuck candidates.
What is the Recovery Process for a Tummy Tuck?
It will be necessary for you to have a week or two off of work following your tummy tuck in Austin. You will experience some discomfort and pain for the first few days while you heal, but prescribed or even over-the-counter pain medication will help. Stitches from an abdominoplasty are normally taken out five to seven days after surgery, or possibly in several stages. Dr. Turner and his staff will give you all the guidelines you need for changing dressings, showering/bathing and walking.
