Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty Houston

Tummy Tuck - Downey Plastic SurgeryAs we age, so does our body. That isn’t new, but there are times where we see our body changes. Some of our patients look for a solution to their abdominal problem especially after giving birth, aging, and genetics. They found themselves being weighed down by a sagging tummy, and seek a tummy tuck procedure. Through this procedure, the abdominal wall is repaired and strengthened.

Aside from tummy tuck, anyone who wants to restore their body before giving birth can undergo a mommy makeover – a procedure that is composed of a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation.

Ideal Tummy Tuck Candidate

If there is fat in your abdominal area, but no sagging skin, a tummy tuck is not the right procedure for you. Usually, patients who have the abdominal wall or muscle stretching or lost their skin elasticity are the ideal candidates for this procedure.

These are often the symptoms experienced by the people who had a significant weight loss or have undergone pregnancy.

The Tummy Tuck Procedure

Initially, an incision is cut through the lower abdominal area, somewhere along where a C-section incision is placed, but a little bit longer. This procedure may reposition the navel, and leave a scar around it.

Dr. Cara R. Downey, our board-certified plastic surgeon, will then tighten the loose muscles and remove the sagging skin. The remaining skin, however, is redraped on the abdomen to leave a smooth and flatten contour.

Tummy Tuck Recovery Process

Please do note that a weight loss plan should not be substituted by a tummy tuck procedure. This also does not remove stretch marks unless it is removed from the lower abdominal area. However, this can improve some areas that have expanded your skin.

Your overnight stay is dependent on how massive the procedure had gone. The abdominal area is apparently sensitive, swollen, and sore that may cause difficulty in standing upright.

Dr. Downey may advise you to take a rest to speed-up your healing. The surgery takes one to two weeks recovery, and after that, you may be allowed to go back to your work but minimize doing strenuous activities. Be sure to discuss with Dr. Downey what time is appropriate to begin taking up any physical activities such as exercise.

The final results for a tummy tuck surgery may take up to six weeks. Because of the surgery, a scar will remain but will lighten and flatten within several months.
