WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING YOUR TUMMY TUCK

There are a few variations on the tummy tuck our Phoenix-area patients can undergo. This page will discuss the traditional procedure. Your Surgeon will explain how different versions are performed, should you prove a better candidate for one of those.
The tummy tuck is major surgery, but is also comes with a lengthy and proven safety record. During your tummy tuck, your surgeon will:

  • Use anesthesia so you feel no pain during your procedure. We will use general anesthesia, so you should arrange to have someone drive you home from your appointment
  • Next, we will make a horizontal incision below your navel and right above your hip line.
  • The surgeon will then go through this incision to tighten loose and weakened abdominal muscles and remove excess skin and fat. We suture the abdominal muscles to keep them steady and stable
  • If you require similar work in your upper abdomen we will make another incision around your navel.
  • The tummy tuck will then be finished by closing the incisions.

Full recovery from your tummy tuck will take a couple weeks, and you will only see the complete results after three to six months.
Our surgeons are always happy to answer any tummy tuck questions their Phoenix patients have for them. This is all part of the process of getting you as comfortable as possible with your plastic surgery.
If you’re a Phoenix, Nevada area resident and you think a tummy tuck might be a viable option for giving you a tighter stomach, please contact Gawley Plastic Surgery today.
