Are you tired of not having the body you’ve always wanted? You want to get the body you deserve, but you’re not sure where to start. The good news is that there are many different options for getting a body contouring procedure done. With so many options, it can be hard to know which one is right for you.
If you’re considering getting a tummy tuck, here are some things to know before deciding whether or not this is the right procedure for you:
What is a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area to create a firmer, more toned appearance. It can also be used to tighten loose or sagging skin in the abdominal area and correct associated problems, such as hernias, umbilical hernias, stretch marks and scarring.
Although this procedure can be performed on both men and women of all ages, it is most commonly performed on women who have had multiple pregnancies or excessive weight gain or loss.
Tummy Tuck Benefits
Tummy tucks are often performed as part of a mommy makeover that includes breast augmentation and liposuction. The procedure can also be performed on patients who have lost significant weight, which can leave them with excess skin and fat deposits around their abdomen area.
A tummy tuck can improve your appearance by:
- Reducing excess fat in areas surrounding your belly button and waistline
- Improving the shape of your lower back, hips and thighs
- Making scars less noticeable
How long does it take?
The surgery takes about two hours per side (four hours total). You’ll need about two weeks for full recovery, but most patients report feeling better within two days after surgery. Your doctor will prescribe pain medication and antibiotics to help manage your discomfort during recovery.
People who have undergone a tummy tuck are often very pleased with the results. A tummy tuck can help you look more toned and trim, and it can help improve your self-esteem. Dr. York Yates has performed hundreds of these procedures, and he has helped his patients achieve their goals.
