Tummy Tuck Tallahassee
If you want a tighter, flatter abdomen, then a tummy tuck may be for you. In Destin, Dothan, Thomasville, Panama City and Valdosta, patients are recommending Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic for this procedure.
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles especially after weight loss. This creates an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer, often enhancing your body image and confidence.
A full tummy tuck requires a horizontal incision in the area between the pubic hairline and navel. Incision size is largely dependent on the amount of excess skin to be removed. The tightening of the abdominal muscles (the six pack) is called fascia plication and can correct a condition called “diastasis”
Where correction is isolated to the area below the navel, a limited or mini tummy tuck with a shorter incision at the pubic bone may be recommended. Sutures, tapes and skin adhesives, may close the incisions.
Patients generally find that swelling subsides and initial results appear in approximately 2-4 weeks, with final results appearing months post-surgery. Incision lines will continue to flatten and fade for up to a year. Most patients notice a difference immediately and see further improvements as swelling decreases. The Tummy Tuck is often combines with other procedures to enhance body contours.
