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. This cosmetic treatment allows men and women the chance to have a new, youthful shape and restored confidence. For more about how abdominoplasty can help you get the body you desire, contact us at our Cedar Park, Round Rock, Austin, or Killeen, TX locations to schedule your consultation.
"I've been on my mommy makeover journey for quite some time now. But I am over joyed to have finally found the perfect doctor and staff. The Beleza Medspa/Surgery staff and Dr.Hernandez are very welcoming and informative.They are not just after your money they actually care about you and what’s best for you! The way they walked me through every process and answered all the questions I had(and I had a lot of them). I recently had my surgery this past Monday, and I cannot wait to see my final results. Thank you to everyone at the Beleza Medspa/Surgery for making this such a smooth process for me."- S.S. / Google / Apr 27, 2021

"My experience here was excellent. I did my research before deciding where to go for my Botox and filler and ended up choosing Beleza because of their extensively documented processes on their website as well as their very professional social media presence and high ratings on Yelp. They really did not disappoint. Booking ProcessThey were super easy to get ahold of and worked with me and my packed schedule to get me an appointment. It had to be rescheduled on my behalf once and then I ended up calling again because my work schedule allowed for my original appointment time again and they were so understanding on the phone and let me take my original date/time.OfficeThe office is well maintained and very clean and I was greeted warmly right away by Elena, after I filled out my paperwork I was greeted by Nancy. Treatment Nancy took me back and was very thorough during our consult. I am new to Botox/fillers and she has been in esthetics for 24 years so she had a ton of knowledge but what was even better was that she was that she responded to all my questions with care and kindness. I got filler in my cheeks and a bit in my undereye trough, Botox in my 11’s and then a little Botox around the mouth. She explained every step of the way and made me feel very at ease even though I’m not a big fan of needles. Overall my experience here was amazing and I will continue to return for more services with their lovely and knowledgable staff!"- S.M. / Yelp / Jan 22, 2021
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.
