What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is the surgical removal of excess fat and skin, and the tightening of loose muscle tissue within the abdominal area. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Foster will remove some of these tissues and reshape them in a way that creates a flatter stomach with minimal scarring. A full tummy tuck treatment tightens the skin from hip bone to hip bone. Mini tummy tuck surgery is a less intensive option for patients whose fat deposits are primarily below the navel.

Tummy Tuck Candidates

Tummy tuck surgery can be performed on both men and women. They are a great option for patients who have lost considerable weight, or who retain fat deposits in the abdominal area that do not respond to diet or exercise. In the past decade, tummy tucks have also become a popular surgery for women who have been pregnant and since struggled to achieve a tight, lean abdomen after childbirth.

Following a tummy tuck, patients will require a few days of inactivity. They may also experience some level of discomfort, for which Dr. Foster can prescribe medication. Patients will be given special abdominal bandaging and may wear special draining tubes that will be removed at a later time by Dr. Foster. Full results of a tummy tuck usually are visible within one to three months.

What Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?

The cost of a tummy tuck depends upon the amount of tissue being removed, the level of anesthesia a patient requires, and whether a patient combines this procedure with other body contouring techniques. Liposuction is a popular complementary treatment for tummy tuck surgery, further toning the stomach area to create a beautiful, slim shape.

Before tummy tuck or any other plastic surgery treatment, Dr. Foster meets with his patients to understand their desires and goals for surgery, as well as any budgetary or scheduling restrictions they have. After consulting with Dr. Foster, patients will be given a quote for their tummy tuck procedure.
