Do I Need a Tummy Tuck?

With summer looming, it might be time to talk tummies. What does yours look like? Aging, weight gain/loss, and pregnancy can leave your mid-section looking more twelve-pack than six-pack. Get your flat tummy back. Ask us about a tummy tuck!

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck—also called abdominoplasty—is a surgical procedure that restores a flat appearance to the abdominal area. An incision is made low on the abdomen (typically below the bikini line), through which excess skin and fat are removed and abdominal muscles are tightened. This procedure is popular with both male and female patients.

What Can a Tummy Tuck Do for Me?

A tummy tuck can:

  • Remove excess abdominal skin.
  • Tighten abdominal muscles and correct muscle separation.
  • Restore a flat, tight appearance to the abdomen.
  • Help you get bikini-ready!

I’m Planning More Pregnancies. Do I Need to Wait for a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck transforms the abdomen with lasting results, but future pregnancies or weight gain/loss can lead to the same unwanted changes reoccurring. Dr. Sajjadian recommends that you postpone your tummy tuck until after your last pregnancy. You’ll receive the most benefit if you wait until you’ve achieved a stable weight (close to your goal weight).

What Is Recovery Like After a Tummy Tuck?

After your tummy tuck, you’ll return home to recover. For the first few days you’ll have some swelling, tightness, and tenderness in the abdominal area. Walk as soon as you’re able to and focus on taking care of your body. You should avoid heavy lifting, bending, and strenuous exercise until you’re cleared to resume these activities by Dr. Sajjadian. Most patients are back to work within two weeks.
