A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the abdomen. During a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty – excess skin and fat is removed from the abdomen. Connective tissue in the abdomen (fascia) is usually tightened with sutures as well. The remaining skin is then repositioned to create a more toned look. A tummy tuck can be done to remove excess fat or skin around the area of the belly button or a weak lower abdominal wall. A patient may choose to have a tummy tuck to boost their body image
Initially, you will consult a plastic surgeon about a tummy tuck.
During your first visit, your plastic surgeon will likely:
- REVIEW YOUR MEDICAL HISTORY
Be prepared to answer questions about current and past medical conditions. Talk about any medications you are taking or have taken recently, as well as any surgeries you have had. Tell your doctor if you are allergic to any medications. If your desire for a tummy tuck is related to weight loss, your doctor will likely ask detailed questions about your weight gain and loss.
DO A PHYSICAL EXAM
To determine your treatment options, the doctor will
examine your abdomen. The doctor might also take
pictures of your abdomen for your medical record.
- DISCUSS YOUR EXPECTATIONS
Explain why you want a tummy tuck and what you are hoping for in terms of appearance after the procedure. Make sure you understand the benefits and risks, including scarring. Keep in mind that previous abdominal surgery might limit your results.
