What Is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure used to remove both excess fat and skin from the abdomen. The primary goal of this surgery is to restore a smoother, flatter appearance to the stomach area.
How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
There are several types of tummy tuck procedures, including standard abdominoplasty, mini-abdominoplasty, extended abdominoplasty, and reverse abdominoplasty. Each type of operation is designed to meet the specific needs of each patient. If you are considering a tummy tuck, it is essential to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Stephen M. Miller, who can help you determine which type of procedure will best suit your needs. In most cases, the procedure involves liposuction to remove excess fat, removal of excess skin and tightening of the abdominal muscles to create a firmer tummy area.
Are There Risks of Undergoing a Tummy Tuck?
There are certain risks involved in undergoing a tummy tuck procedure, especially since it is a surgical procedure. Proper postoperative care will reduce the risk of certain complications, such as infection and blood clots. Some other potential risks include fluid accumulation, poor wound healing, asymmetry of the treated area, and increased pain or discomfort after surgery. However, with a well-qualified surgeon like Dr. Stephen M. Miller, who has the experience to perform this procedure safely and effectively, most patients will have a positive outcome from their surgery.
