Some patients after pregnancy or significant weight loss experience a stretched and rounded area of the tummy. An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, is a procedure designed to address these cosmetic issues by removing skin and fat, improving the appearance of the belly button, and flattening the abdominal wall.
The rounded appearance of the tummy is often caused by a condition known as rectus diastasis. This is a condition in which the larger abdominal muscles separate, often after pregnancy. Within the tummy tuck procedure any rectus diastasis repairs will be made with sutures resulting in a flattened abdominal wall from top to bottom.
This surgery is performed by our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons and generally takes about three hours to perform in the operating room. Recovery time for this procedure usually takes around 2-3 weeks. The result is a youthful, flat and tight abdominal contour to your tummy area.
