Candidates for Tummy Tuck

The best candidates for tummy tuck are men and women who are unhappy with the appearance of stubborn belly fat or excess, sagging skin around the abdomen. Many patients who pursue tummy tuck surgery have tried to accomplish their aesthetic goals with diet and exercise, but have been unsuccessful. Abdominoplasty is meant to help patients achieve those goals, but it is not meant to substitute for healthy lifestyle habits. Frequently patients desiring abdominoplasties also have hernias which should be repaired during the procedure. These hernias are usually caused by pregnancies or previous procedures. The most frequent hernias encountered are the umbilical (belly button), incisional, and ventral hernias. Patients interested in pursuing a tummy tuck should be in good health and should not smoke. It is also important to disclose any medical conditions or medications to Dr. Toledo so that he can ensure patient safety throughout the procedure and recovery.

The Procedure

Tummy tuck surgery is performed at Dr. Toledo’s state-of-the-art facility, the Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center, under general anesthesia. The entire procedure can take anywhere from two to four hours, depending on the extent of changes being made. Dr. Toledo will make an incision just above the pelvic bone, extending from hip to hip. For patients who are undergoing a mini tummy tuck, which focuses primarily on the lower abdomen, the incision may be smaller. Through this incision Dr. Toledo will remove sagging skin and excess fat before tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall. The remaining skin is then gently pulled down and sutures are placed.

After Surgery

Tummy tuck is an extensive body contouring procedure which requires downtime. Dr. Toledo and his friendly, knowledgeable staff provide the care patients need to have a comfortable, safe and quick recovery process. In addition to providing thorough post-operative instructions, Dr. Toledo is available to answer any questions or concerns that may arise in the days and weeks after surgery. Most tummy tuck patients can return to work and light activities about 10 days after surgery; however, more strenuous activities and exercises should only be resumed only under Dr. Toledo’s guidance.

The results of tummy tuck surgery are immediate following the procedure, with the final results being evident after about 3-6 months. Men and women who undergo tummy tuck surgery with Dr. Toledo often find that their surgical results exceed their expectations. Not only do they have a more slender, attractive figure, but they are able to approach daily life more confidently.
