What is a Tummy Tuck?

For adults, sagging skin and unwanted fat within the abdominal region can be frustrating and challenging despite efforts to reduce it. Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging are the most popular reasons why an individual may not be able to reclaim a tighter and slimmer stomach. An abdominoplasty is a cosmetic treatment that successfully transforms the abdominal region, achieving attractive results for patients. At Beleza Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez performs tummy tuck surgery at her accredited OR facility in Cedar Park, TX.

What Can I Expect from My Tummy Tuck?

Abdominoplasty is performed with you under general anesthesia. There are numerous surgical options that come into consideration when this surgery is performed by Dr. Hix-Hernandez, which is customized according to your specific needs. For starters, the incision shape is determined based on the quantity of excess skin. Some patients with severe loose skin might benefit best from an extended tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck makes the incision from hip bone to hip bone, just on top of the pubic section. Other patients with minimal skin laxity may be better suited for a less invasive incision. When your tummy tuck is complete, you will be monitored and released wearing a compression device to help control swelling. Walking and standing will be a bit painful at first so you should rest for a couple of days. Standing and moving becomes less painful once the abdominal muscles adjust and the incision begins to heal. Most patients should be able to resume a normal routine after about two weeks. Exercise can begin later, closer to the two-month mark or earlier if you are cleared by Dr. Hix-Hernandez. The abdomen will feel sore and tight, but you will look and feel normal again after recovering.
