Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

For Those Who’ve Lost Weight, Had Children or Need A Confidence Boost

A tummy tuck, medically known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat and rebuilds weak abdominal muscles for a smoother, slimmer abdominal profile. Tummy tuck surgery can be an ideal solution for both women and men who are struggling to sculpt the stomach they want despite regular exercise and healthy eating. It is one of the most popular body contouring procedures available, particularly for patients who wish to restore the appearance of their midsection after pregnancy or weight loss.

This transformative procedure can help by:

  • Eliminating excess fat and skin from your midsection

  • Tightening weak or separated abdominal muscles

  • Flattening a “belly pooch” that is unresponsive to diet and exercise

  • Sculpting a firmer, flatter and more defined stomach

  • Improving the fit of clothing

  • Giving you long-lasting results and a renewed sense of confidence

Body Contouring Customized For You

No two tummy tucks are the same. When you choose Dr. Wiser for your surgery, you can be confident that your treatment plan will be entirely customized. Dr. Wiser will take the time to get to know you and your concerns so he can create a procedure that meets your unique needs. Whether you’re looking for subtle tweaks or a total transformation, Dr. Wiser will design the tummy tuck that’s right for you. 

 

There are three types of abdominoplasty procedures, each of which takes about two hours to perform under general anesthesia. A full tummy tuck tightens lax abdominal muscles and achieves significant removal of excess skin and fat. A mini tummy tuck focuses on the muscles, skin and fat in the lower abdomen only. An extended tummy tuck removes excess skin from a larger area than a full tummy tuck, making it ideal for those who have lost a considerable amount of weight.

Tummy tuck surgery is commonly combined with other procedures to yield a full-body transformation. Liposuction, for example, is frequently used to provide additional fat reduction and contour refinements. Many women also choose to combine their tummy tuck with breast augmentation and/or a breast lift to restore their body after childbirth. This combination of procedures is commonly known as a mommy makeover.

Discover The Confidence to be Uniquely You

Expect to spend two to four weeks away from your daily activities after a tummy tuck. Activity restriction will be strict at first and you will have a compression garment to wear. Follow Dr. Wiser’s aftercare instructions closely to reduce swelling, increase your comfort and make the most of your new contours.

 

Although initial improvements are visible immediately after tummy tuck surgery, the most striking results emerge as the postoperative swelling subsides. Your midsection will be smoother, flatter and more proportionate with the rest of your figure. The scar will be in a location that can be hidden by most clothing and will fade substantially over time. 

 

Patients who have tummy tuck surgery choose to live their life confidently again. It takes gumption to have a child, lose weight or recognize that your body doesn’t look the way you want it to. With a tummy tuck, you can finally enjoy an abdomen that reflects your commitment to health and zest for life. Abdominoplasty, more than perhaps any other elective cosmetic surgery, has the power to dramatically improve patients’ quality of life.
