30 Jun Want Your Figure Back? A Tummy Tuck with Liposuction Could Be The Answer.
Regardless of a woman’s size, shape, or fitness, there are very few women who do not have changes in their abdominal wall after child bearing. Some women have sagging skin, abdomens that protrude as their abdominal walls have been stretched. Some have loose sagging abdominal skin, or in other cases a massive weight loss. Almost all have tried dieting and exercising and are discouraged by the lack of results. In fact, patients find that as they lose weight the skin becomes looser and looks even worse! And liposuction alone can’t fix stretched skin, nor does it repair the muscles.
Traditionally, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction have been separate procedures. Dr. Keith Neaman often performs these two procedures together as they work in unison to correct and restore the desired appearance.
How a Tummy Tuck with Liposuction Works
Many surgeons prefer to liposuction the entire abdominal wall to reduce the fat thickness throughout, followed by repairing the muscles of the abdomen and tightened. Finally the excess skin is removed and recontoured resulting in a flat, contouring stomach.
Tummy Tuck Recovery
Dr. Neaman performs tummy tuck surgery under general anesthesia. Helping our patients manage a speedy recovery is one of our primary missions. The length of the recovery will depend on the amount of muscle repaired, and the physical condition of the patient. For a full abdominoplasty there can be a recovery period of 3 to 4 weeks, but can be longer — particularly if you have a strenuous job. This may seem like a long time, but the muscles repaired are used for everything we do. And the better the repair, the better the long-term result.
