What Is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck allows for the correction of deformities caused by pregnancy or weight loss, which are not amenable to address otherwise with exercise or changes in habits and routine. When performed by an experienced, board-certified surgeon, a tummy tuck can transform the body and positively impact the patient's life.

Having children is a miracle of nature, and losing a significant amount of weight is quite an achievement. However, the price the body pays is often unfair to the patient because it can change the appearance in ways they can’t remedy themselves. Abdominoplasty corrects the resulting folds and gives patients back the confidence they deserve.

Liposuction can also be included for further narrowing of the waistline.

The Recovery Period

Swelling and bruising can be expected after surgery, and any pain can be controlled by a prescription for Exparel, which tends to make the recovery much easier, faster, and less painful. The recovery
