Tummy tuck offered by Dr. Kimball M. Crofts

This procedure involves the excision of excess fat and skin to create a flatter, more youthful abdomen. Those interested in a tummy tuck have a postpartum pot belly deformity or stretched out abdomen that often forms from pregnancy. People sometimes assume that dieting and exercise will correct this problem; however, the lower abdomen will not improve its shape like the rest of the body. Therefore, an abdominoplasty is the only option.
 
Prior to going forward with abdominoplasty, you must understand that this procedure is not a weight reduction treatment. It is actually a body contouring process. For best results, it’s critical that a patient’s weight be stable appropriate before heading into the tummy tuck surgery.
 

What is Tummy Tuck Surgery Like?

Once an incision is made along the creases of the lower abdomen, we take it down through the skin to create a flap of tissue. Through the process of wall aplication, the patient’s abdomen returns to a nice, flat state. A new site for the belly button is then identified after the patient is placed into a flexed position. Following an overnight stay, you are ready for discharge.

Postoperative - What Should I Expect After a Tummy Tuck?

The patient will wear a compression garment, record drainage and remain in a jackknifed position during walking. At one week, you can stand in an upright position. By week two, the patient can return to normal work activities. And within three months, you should be back to 100 percent.
