Achieved With Tummy Tuck Surgery
Your Tummy Tuck Procedure
Dr. Henry will evaluate the condition of your abdomen to create a customized surgical plan that will address your personal concerns and help you reach your aesthetic goal.
Tummy tuck surgery is performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. During your procedure, an incision will be made above the bikini line, and Dr. Henry will trim loose, hanging skin from the treated area. She will also tighten the abdominal muscles and remove stubborn or irregular fat deposits. Some tummy tuck surgeries may also involve repositioning the navel while eliminating the appearance of stretch marks when extra skin is removed.
Following your tummy tuck surgery, you should plan on taking two weeks off from work to allow your incisions to heal. Swelling and bruising are expected but should resolve after a few days. It is important that you have someone to help you accomplish tasks around the house that you may be too sore to complete on your own. You will also need to wear a compression garment and empty any surgical drains to prevent fluid from building up. You should be able to return to work two weeks after your procedure.
Tummy tuck surgery will leave you with toned and slim body contours that will take years off of your appearance.
Incisions are placed along the lower abdomen so that scars can be easily hidden underneath clothing and bathing suits. They will likely fade over time.
The cost of your tummy tuck surgery will vary based on several factors, including surgical fees and techniques. Dr. Henry will provide you with a price sheet during your consultation.
