Although tummy tucks are one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures we offer, many people don't know what a tummy tuck is or if they even need one.  But we're here to help. If you have questions, we have the answers! In this blog article, you'll learn what a tummy tuck is, who's eligible, how much it costs, what the procedure is like, and more!

What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) removes excess fat and skin from the midsection to create a flatter, tighter abdomen that looks natural yet toned. It can also be used to repair separation of the abdominal muscles (diastasis recti). When combined with liposuction, a tummy tuck works like a 360-degree effect, making both your abdomen and waistline look better.  Moreover, it is the only way to remove stretch marks guaranteed. The procedure takes about two to three hours under general anesthesia and is often completed with an overnight stay in a surgical facility or hospital. 

Who is a candidate?

Anyone who has a lot of abdominal skin and fat after weight loss, weight gain or pregnancy is a candidate. Anyone who struggles with a bulging belly due to stretched abdominal muscles is also a candidate. Truth be told, it's for anyone who just doesn't like the look of their belly due to too much loose skin, stubborn belly fat and/or stretched abs!  

Cost of a Tummy Tuck?

The cost of a Tummy Tuck Memphis is rarely covered by health insurance, so you will have to pay for it out of your own pocket. The price of a tummy tuck includes the surgeon's fee, the cost of anesthesia, the cost of the facility and any other medical expenses incurred during or after the procedure. This does not include the cost of time off work. When added up, these costs can really add up!  Since the total cost varies depending on the extent of the procedure required, we encourage you to schedule a free consultation with our office today for a more accurate estimate.

How about the recovery?

You can usually return to work or light activities after 1 week and resume your normal daily routine after 4 weeks. You should not do any strenuous activities for 6-8 weeks, but you can start doing light exercises after 3-4 weeks as long as they do not stress your core (think arms and legs).  Most people are symptom-free after a month, but tightness and pain may still occur. Swelling in the surgical area is also common and may take weeks or months to subside.
