Abdominoplasty | Tummy Tuck

Candidates for  Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is designed to correct a protruding abdomen resulting from weak abdominal muscles, weight gain or pregnancy. Excess skin and stretched abdominal muscles typically don’t respond to exercise.

In this procedure, the abdominal wall muscles are tightened and excess fatty tissue and skin are removed to improve the body contour. The goal is a narrower, flatter abdomen. Dr. Pittman will perform this surgery in combination with liposuction to further define other areas such as the flanks, hips and lower back. It must be noted, however, that body contouring procedures are NOT a substitute for normal weight loss achieved through a healthy diet and exercise. The surgery takes two to three hours under general anesthesia at our private AAAHC accredited surgical facility which provides our patients comfort and convenience while avoiding a costly hospital visit.

Results & Recovery*

Recovery time is typically one to two weeks and patients should refrain from strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for one month. Your scars will fade and flatten over the course of 3 months to 2 years.
