What is a Tummy Tuck?

Sagging skin and stubborn fat on the stomach can feel frustrating, especially when you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Significant weight loss, childbirth, and aging are common reasons why someone has difficulty regaining a slim and toned tummy. Producing amazing results for patients, an abdominoplasty is a body contouring surgery that reshapes the abdominal region. Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang can tailor a tummy tuck surgery to reduce excess skin and fat. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, this cosmetic treatment helps patients tighten their figure and feel more confident. Read more about how a tummy tuck can eliminate excess skin and fat and tighten the ab muscles. Please contact our office in Tampa, FL to schedule your consultation.

Is A Tummy Tuck Right For You?

Abdominoplasty can help both men and women. If you feel frustrated with sagging skin and excess fat on the stomach, a tummy tuck can help you slim and tone your appearance. Dr. Mang recommends being at a good weight before undergoing this treatment. Tummy tuck surgery is not a weight loss procedure — it treats loose skin. To eliminate pockets of fat, we may use a form of liposuction. If your abdominal area has good skin tautness, but you still feel unhappy with the appearance of your midsection, we may suggest liposuction. Women interested in abdominoplasty should be past childbearing to ensure their results are not affected.

Surgical Technique

Abdominoplasty is performed with general anesthesia. Before your surgery, Dr. Mang will determine which technique works best for your needs. He will start by assessing the amount of excess skin, which determines the incision size. Some patients with an abundance of saggy skin may require a full tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck makes the incision along the lower abdomen from hip to hip, just on top of the pubic area. Patients who have minimal skin laxity may only need a smaller incision. These patients still benefit from an abdominoplasty, but they will simply have a smaller scar. No matter the technique, all tummy tuck procedures involve the excision of loose skin and liposuction.

What to Expect

After your surgery is complete, we will monitor you in our recovery room and send you home in a compression device. The compression will help reduce swelling. Standing upright and walking is difficult at first so you should plan to rest for a few days. However, standing becomes easier once the muscles relax and the incision heals. Most patients can resume their normal routine within two weeks. Workouts can restart in about 6 – 8 weeks. If Dr. Mang approves it, your workouts may start earlier. The midsection will feel tight and uncomfortable, but you will look and feel normal again once healed.

Tummy Tucks

A variety of reasons can cause saggy skin on the stomach. We know you may struggle each day to reduce these cosmetic issues, and tummy tuck surgery is usually the only way to overcome this. If you want to remove the loose skin on your abdomen, no matter the severity, Dr. Mang can create a tailored treatment plan that meets your needs. During your consultation, we can discuss what techniques work best for you and outline the costs of your tummy tuck. To make your tummy tuck affordable, we offer payment plans or financing options.
