Tummy TuckSilver Spring, MD
A Tummy Tuck is an excellent treatment option for patients who are having difficulty achieving a trim midsection. For many of these patients, pregnancy, weight gain, and/or the aging process has made it difficult to lose weight in their midsection. A Tummy Tuck can address these issues by repairing the abdominal walls and removing excess fat and skin from the midsection.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?
Good candidates for a Tummy Tuck will be in excellent health and have reasonable expectations for the outcome of this surgery. Candidates will be non-smokers who do not take blood-thinning medications. Candidates may have recently lost a large amount of weight or gone through a pregnancy and need help reshaping their midsection. Tummy Tuck candidates may also need excess fat removed with targeted Liposuction.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM THE PROCEDURE?
A Tummy Tuck procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are made near the pubic area, which makes it easy for patients to hide their surgical scars. This allows Dr. Dillon to access the stomach and repair damaged abdominal muscles. Dr. Dillon will use Liposuction to remove unwanted fat, and then tighten the abdomen by removing any excess skin.
WHAT’S THE RECOVERY LIKE?
The typical recovery time for a Tummy Tuck is two weeks. Patients should avoid lifting heavy objects; they should also sleep on their backs to avoid putting pressure on the stomach. Strenuous physical activity can resume after six weeks of recovery.
