What is a Tummy Tuck?

For both men and women, hanging skin and excess fat surrounding the abdominal region can be frustrating despite efforts to reduce it. Significant weight loss, childbirth, and aging are the most common reasons why someone may not be able to regain a slim and tight stomach. Skin tightening of the abdomen is a body contouring surgery that reshapes the abdominal region, producing extraordinary results for patients. Board-certified plastic surgeon and hand surgeon Dr. Omar Ahmed performs customized abdominoplasty based on each individual's cosmetic goals. This cosmetic treatment at Omar Ahmed, M.D. allows individuals the chance to have a new youthful shape and increased confidence. We invite you to contact us to schedule your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Ahmed.

Ideal Candidates for Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery can be successful for both women and men. If you have loose or wrinkly skin, as well as excess fat in the lower abdomen, this body contouring procedure can help create a slimming and more toned physique. Dr. Ahmed suggests you be at a stable weight prior to surgery. Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for weight loss — it removes loose skin. A form of liposuction is often incorporated during the procedure to eliminate fat. Women considering this treatment should be past pregnancy so that the results are not compromised.

How We Perform a Tummy Tuck

Body contouring of the abdomen is performed with general anesthesia. There are various techniques to consider when this surgery is performed by Dr. Ahmed. To start, the incision shape and size are chosen based upon the quantity of excess skin. Some individuals with an abundance of hanging skin might benefit best from a full tummy tuck. This method places the incision from hip bone to hip bone, just above the pubic area. Other patients who are concerned with minimal skin wrinkling may be better candidates for a smaller incision. These individuals still benefit from skin tightening but will simply have a less expansive scar. Regardless of the type, all abdominoplasty procedures at Omar Ahmed, M.D. involve the excision of sagging skin and liposuction.

Follow-up After Tummy Tuck

After your tummy tuck surgery, you will be carefully examined and sent home wearing a compression garment to help control swelling. Standing upright and walking will be a bit painful at first so you should take it easy for several days. You should be able to resume a normal routine somewhere around two weeks. You can exercise again around the two-month mark or when you are cleared by Dr. Ahmed. The stomach will feel sore and tight, but you will look and feel normal again after recovering.
