Tummy Tuck Before and After Pictures
What is Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?
A tummy tuck (also known as abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure where Dr. Schwartz removes excess skin and fat from your middle and lower abdominal areas and tightens the muscles in your abdominal wall. A tummy tuck can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. For a better idea of what you can expect from your tummy tuck procedure with Dr. Jaime Schwartz MD, please check out the tummy tuck before and after pictures below.
Many women seek out this procedure to address skin laxity and overstretched abdominal muscles following childbearing. It is often performed in conjunction with a breast lift – a combination procedure is known as a “mommy makeover”, but increasingly for guys, it is a go-to procedure for making your stomach look more youthful and tight following massive weight loss.
The length of your tummy tuck procedure can range from two to five hours, depending on the extent of repairs needed. A partial abdominoplasty may take only an hour or two, and the details of your specific tummy tuck procedure will be covered in your consultation with Dr. Schwartz.
For the first few days after your abdominoplasty, your abdomen will be swollen, and you will have some measure of discomfort, which can be controlled with medication and avoid any excess movement. It can take up to nine months, even a year, for the scars to fade and ultimately, the scar line is tiny and is hidden under your clothing and even a bikini.
