Am I a candidate for tummy tuck / abdominoplasty?
Tummy tuck is a great procedure to remove the excess skin and tissue still remaining after weight loss in both men and women, or after pregnancy in women. To be a candidate, you need to be in good health and have a problem with excess tissue, and want to have a slimmer body, waist and tummy. For men tighter abs and a better waist line is possible. Tummy tuck is specially helpful after gastric bypass surgery, when your weight is stable and you are ready for the final step in obtaining the body you always wanted. Tummy tuck is often combined with other procedures such as breast surgery, arm lift or liposuction of other areas. Contact our office to see how Dr. Mabourakh can help you in Sacramento area.
Recovery after abdominoplasty – tummy tuck.
Tummy tuck is a 2 hour out-patient surgery and early ambulation (walking) after surgery is key to quicker recovery. Avoiding physical activity for two weeks after surgery is highly recommended but walking short distances as soon as possible is a must to avoid possible problems. Returning to a desk job is possible after two weeks but three weeks is recommended, four weeks is better if possible. Sport type activities will take five to six weeks. Incision is placed as low as possible so as to be hidden with under garments or bathing suites.
What is involved in tummy tuck?
Tummy tuck as performed in Dr, Mabourakh’s Sacramento area office starts with liposuction of abdomen and possibly other areas as needed. Next excess tissue is removed through a very low abdominal scar. Incision is placed as low as possible so as to be hidden with under garments or bathing suites. After tightening the abdominal muscles the tissues are closed and a smaller more appealing belly button is created using patient’s own umbilicus. After surgery sterile dressings are applied and a special garment is worn over the entire abdomen. Please contact our office for an appointment for a private consultation with Dr. Mabourakh. Our office staff are also very knowledgeable and can answer many of your questions.
