The Facts About Tummy Tuck Surgery


October 20, 2016

Tummy tuck surgery is one of the oldest and most popular forms of cosmetic surgery. Over the years, the procedure has evolved thanks to new technology and the expertise of so many talented surgeons. Here is a little bit more about tummy tuck surgery for all who are curious.  

General Information
The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty is designed to firm and smooth the abdomen. This procedure is chosen to remove fat, tighten abdominal muscles and provide a slimmer look to the region. It is a popular surgery for women who have had cesarean sections and are looking to regain their desired appearance.  

How it is Done
With today’s technology, this procedure can be performed with little to no scarring. A surgeon will usually go in and make a small horizontal incision either below or above the navel depending on the patient. They can then go in with a specific set of tools and remove excess fat from the area. After that, they’ll tighten the abdominal muscles to complete the process. In the early days of tummy tuck surgery, doctors had a difficult time dealing with the excess skin that now appeared flabby and unwarranted. In recent years, surgeons have developed tools and specific techniques to combat these unnecessary problems!


  • Flatter stomach
  • You’ll look great and feel good about yourself!
  • Typically a short recovery period (3-6 weeks)
  • A talented surgeon will be able to leave almost no sign of the surgery.

The post-surgery recovery varies for patients based on body type, pain tolerance and a number of other factors. Compared to other forms of plastic surgery, tummy tucks tend to have a short recovery time. You can return to light workouts within 3-4 weeks but swelling in the area can persist even after this. It is important to stay in touch with your doctor and take all the necessary precautions he/she provides you with.
