What Is a Tummy Tuck?
Abdomens can bulge, sag or otherwise distend despite our best intentions. As we go through life, some experiences can affect our abdomen in unexpected ways. Sedentary jobs, less-than-healthy eating habits, lack of exercise and genetics can take their toll on our bodies as we age. Pregnancy and rapid weight loss can also cause a loss of elasticity in the skin that results in a saggy tummy that defies exercise and diet.
A tummy tuck procedure is basic body contouring to eliminate excess skin, remove unwanted fat or adjust the underlying support muscles that will result in a flatter stomach. A tummy tuck is often recommended when diet and exercise alone do not produce desired results. Other causes behind the need for a tummy tuck can include:
- Prior surgery
- Significant changes in weight.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck in Irvine?
- Close to your ideal weight
- Deeply committed to a healthy lifestyle and in good overall health
- Ideally post-childbirth as new pregnancies may necessitate a new tummy tuck
- Has not recently loss a lot of weight
- No adverse medical conditions
- Realistic expectations
What is the Tummy Tuck Procedure Like?
Because a tummy tuck requires surgery to your skin and underlying muscles, you will be anesthetized. A horizontal incision is made very low on the torso so that the skin can be pulled tight after underlying muscles are tightened. After recovery, a modest bikini usually covers this incision completely. How long the incision is depends upon the amount of excess skin present.
When the abdominal skin is lifted the abdominal muscles are repaired and fortified. Dr. Farzaneh’s aim is to make your abdomen flatter and tighter than before. A second incision may be required around the navel if excess skin needs to be removed from the upper abdomen. When the excess skin is pulled tight, it is trimmed and sutured closed.
What is the Recovery Time After a Tummy Tuck?
Recovery often takes only two weeks, but recovery time can vary from patient to patient. You will have bandages and possibly an elastic wrap applied to promote faster healing and you will be given detailed instructions for recovery care and any medications to aid healing. Dr. Farzaneh will stay in touch with you (giving you his personal cell phone number) as needed between your surgery and your first follow-up visit.
