About Tummy Tuck Surgery

For adults, sagging skin and unwanted fat within the abdomen can be frustrating and challenging despite attempts to reduce it. Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging are the primary reasons why someone may not be able to regain a tighter and slimmer tummy. An abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that reshapes the stomach area, producing amazing results for patients. In West Bloomfield, MI, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Julio Sosa performs abdominoplasty that is tailored on the individual's cosmetic goals. This popular surgery at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery allows individuals the chance to have a redefined physique and restored confidence. Learn more about how a tummy tuck can remove excess skin and fat while also tightening the ab muscles before contacting us for your consultation.

Ideal Candidates

Abdominoplasty can be successful for both women and men. If you battle sagging skin, as well as unwanted fat in the abdominal region, this cosmetic surgery can help restore a tighter and slimmer physique. Dr. Sosa suggests that you be at a stable weight prior to surgery. Abdominoplasty is not a procedure to help you lose weight — it addresses loose skin. Liposuction is usually implemented during surgery to remove fat. If your tummy section has healthy skin tautness, but you are still unhappy with the appearance of your midsection even though you have worked to lose weight, you may be a better candidate for liposuction. Women considering this treatment should be past pregnancy to ensure the surgical outcomes are not affected.

Surgical Technique

Body contouring of the abdomen is performed with general anesthesia. There are various techniques to consider when the surgery is performed by Dr. Sosa, which is tailored to the patient's specific goals. For starters, the incision length is chosen based on the amount of excess skin. Some patients with extensive sagging skin may require a full tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck places the incision from hip to hip, just above the pubic region. Other patients with minimal skin looseness may be better suited for a mini tummy tuck. These individuals still benefit from skin tightening, but will simply receive a smaller scar. Regardless of the method, all tummy tuck procedures at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery involve the removal of sagging skin and fat.

What to Expect

Following this procedure, you will be monitored and released wearing a compression garment to help control swelling. Walking upright will be difficult at first so you should rest for a few days. Standing becomes easier once the tightness subsides and the incision begins to heal. Most patients can resume everyday functions around two weeks. Exercise can resume later, closer to two months or when you are cleared by Dr. Sosa. The abdomen will feel tight and uncomfortable, but you will look and feel normal again after recovering.
