The tummy tuck is traditional plastic surgery. The tummy tuck is abdominoplasty which is done in the lower abdomen. The reversed tummy tuck is done under the breast, in the upper abdomen.

Tummy Tuck Q & A

With weight fluctuations, aging, or pregnancy, the underlying muscles and tissue in your abdomen can stretch and sag. This is why even thin people can still struggle with a protruding abdomen. Abdominoplasty, commonly known as tummy tuck surgery, helps to remedy that problem. By removing excess fat and skin from the midsection area, Dr. Obasi can sculpt the abdomen to appear more trim and toned. While you can expect to lose several inches around the waist, tummy tuck surgery isn’t a weight loss solution. It’s intended to:

  • Reduce the amount of stubborn fat deposits in the midsection
  • Remove excess skin
  • Restore and tighten abdominal muscles that are weakened or separated
  • Create a smoother, firmer abdominal profile

A tummy tuck is performed as an outpatient procedure with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Dr. Obasi makes an incision, usually between the navel and pubic lines. The location and length of your incision are determined by the amount of skin you need to have removed. In some cases, a second incision or several incisions around the belly area are necessary, especially if you have a lot of excess skin from weight loss. After the incisions are made, Dr. Obasi might suction away some fatty deposits, repair weakened abdominal tissue, or cut away the skin. He then pulls the remaining skin toward the navel and secures it into a new position with stitches. Depending on your goals and body shape, you might only need a mini tummy tuck, which involves a smaller incision. If you have excess fat and skin in the upper abdomen, a reverse tummy tuck might also be the best option.

You may experience some swelling after the procedure, and your abdominal area will be tender―so the results won’t be visible immediately. Dr. Obasi might advise you to avoid certain activities for a few days to heal properly. It’s essential to remember that weight fluctuations can impact the results of a tummy tuck procedure and that no cosmetic enhancement will replace a good diet and exercise. As long as you’re diligent about following your post-operative instructions and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you can expect your results to last. Get the look you’ve always wanted!

What is a tummy tuck?

Tummy tuck is a traditional abdominoplasty. We have people who have either lost some weight or have either had kids and have a sagging abdomen it concerns them, then we do the traditional tummy tuck.

What happens in the tummy tuck procedure?

This Tummy tuck is done on lower abdomen. We take out the tissue and fat below the middle and lower abdomen.

What is reverse tummy tuck?

Reverse tummy tuck is when you do the surgery from the top. Some people have already got a tummy tuck, and they didn’t get the result they wanted, so we remove excess, loose skin from the upper abdomen or the top.
