Do you look pregnant even though you’re not? Many women struggle with a “mommy muffin”, “muffin top” or a post-baby belly that looks slightly pregnant even years after their last delivery. Stretched out skin and separated or loose abdominal muscles can cause the stomach to look rounded and bulging. Extra crunches at the gym won’t fix this complex problem. You need to ask a board certified plastic surgeon about a tummy tuck. Get your flat stomach back!
What Is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that creates a flat, toned appearance in the abdominal area. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the abdominal muscles are tightened. This creates an internal girdle that supports the midsection from within. Although the tummy tuck is a common addition to the Mommy Makeover, it is popular with both men and women.
What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?
Dr. Sajjadian performs tummy tucks on an outpatient basis in his accredited surgical center. Anesthesia is used to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. A horizontal incision is made across the pubic area, extending from hipbone to hipbone. Dr. Sajjadian works through this incision to remove excess fat using liposuction. This is done to strengthen the abdominal wall and remove saggy skin. If needed, the belly button can be relocated higher on the abdomen. The incisions are then closed, the area is wrapped in bandaging, and you’re sent home to recover. This procedure is customized to your needs.
What’s Recovery Like After a Tummy Tuck?
You may feel tenderness and tightness and experience some bruising and swelling in the abdominal area. Get plenty of rest, eat nutritious foods, and drink a lot of water. Gentle walking can reduce the risk of blood clots. Most patients are back to work within two weeks.
Can I Combine My Tummy Tuck with Breast Augmentation for a Mommy Makeover?
A tummy tuck provides stunning results on its own, but can be easily combined with other procedures (like breast augmentation) for a full body transformation. Get rid of your mommy tummy and your sagging post-baby breasts at the same time with a Mommy Makeover. See Dr. Sajjadian’s famed Mommy Makeover results in our photo gallery.
