Tummy Tuck Q & A

What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat and loose skin from your abdomen.

The goal of a tummy tuck is to restore the tone and shape of your abdomen to enhance your natural contours and overall appearance. This procedure is not a treatment for obesity and doesn’t replace a weight loss program.

Am I a candidate for a tummy tuck?

You may be a candidate for a tummy tuck if you have stubborn areas of fat and skin in your lower abdomen that you can’t lose with regular exercise and a good diet.

A tummy tuck is also a treatment option if you’re unhappy with your abdomen because of saggy skin and muscle weakness that results from aging, pregnancy, and weight loss.

Dr. Lynch determines if you’re a good candidate for a tummy tuck by reviewing your medical history and discussing your cosmetic goals. This type of procedure might be a good fit for you if you’re in generally good shape but aren’t able to tighten or tone your tummy with a healthy lifestyle.

What can I expect during a tummy tuck?

As there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to a tummy tuck, Dr. Lynch uses a variety of surgical techniques to tighten and tone your abdomen based on your unique needs. The goal of surgery is to remove unwanted pockets of fat and excess skin to restore your natural contours.

Dr. Lynch can also perform a breast lift or augmentation in conjunction with a tummy tuck to improve your overall appearance and your personal satisfaction with your surgical results.

Following your tummy tuck, you can expect up to four weeks of recovery time for your incisions to heal. You will need to limit strenuous activities, like heavy lifting and exercise, to prevent post-surgical complications.

Dr. Lynch can determine when it’s safe for you to return to work and your other activities by monitoring your recovery process.
