Let’s begin with the Abdominoplasty or more commonly called a Tummy Tuck. Traditionally, theTummy Tuck is performed when there is an apron of tummy skin and the internal muscles of the abdomen are stretched and distended (often as a result of multiple childbirths or excessive weight gain). The procedure pulls and sews the abdominal wall fascia or muscles together creating an internal corset. This results in a dramatic narrowing figure forming an “hourglass”waistline. The excess apron of fat and skin is removed and the mons pubis or pubic mound is lifted in a pleasing rejuvenated position, while the abdomen is made tight and flat. The recovery from the traditional Tummy Tuck is generally 4 to6 weeks. The traditional scar is placed on the lower abdomen and runs from hip bone to hip bone typically within the panty or underwear line. A person will recover at a 45% angle to avoid putting pressure on the abdominal scars. Patientsare elated with the result of a flat, tight tummy.
