TUMMY TUCK IN KENTUCKY AND INDIANA
If you’re unhappy with loose and flabby skin around your abdomen, a tummy tuck procedure may be what you’re looking for. The appearance of our abdomen and the tightness of our skin can be negatively affected for multiple reasons. Weight gain, weight loss, and even pregnancy can cause the skin and muscles within the abdomen to stretch. Aging can also cause the skin to become droopy and less firm. If you are unhappy with the current look of your tummy, there is now a highly effective solution that could benefit you. A tummy tuck can achieve the tone and tight abdomen that you desire.

WHAT IS A TUMMY TUCK?
A tummy tuck procedure, or abdominoplasty, is a highly effective solution designed to tighten stretched abdominal muscles and remove excess skin tissue around the abdomen. This procedure is personalized to improve the appearance of your abdomen for a smooth and flat look. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your stomach, a tummy tuck could be the solution for tightening your lax skin and stretched abdominal muscles.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The tummy tuck procedure is performed through slight incisions that are made along the abdomen near the pubic region. This ensures that the scars can be minimized, as well as minimally visible in the future. The abdominal muscles that have been stretched are then gently stitched together and put back in place. The excess skin is also removed, and the remaining skin is tightened. The results provide a flat and more toned core.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE?
For anyone who is unhappy with the current condition of their abdomen and is looking for an effective solution for tightening their skin, you could benefit from a tummy tuck procedure in Kentucky or Indiana. If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of sagging skin resulting from weight loss, weight gain, or pregnancy, you could qualify as a candidate. However, the best way to determine if you’re a proper candidate for this procedure is through a consultation.

Drain tubes are typically removed two weeks after surgery.
Most patients can return to work after around two weeks. However, everyone is different, and some can return to work in just under two weeks. In that case, they can pin the drain tubes to their compression garments.
How you typically scar is more than likely how your tummy tuck scar will look. We will give you scar and bruise cream and a complimentary laser treatment to help with the color, texture, and appearance. The method our plastic surgeons use, which involves small incisions made close to the pubic region, is designed to minimize scarring as much as possible.
The tummy tuck procedure includes liposuction 360, mons lift, muscle repair, and skin excision.
Small incisions are made, typically close to the pubic region, through which the plastic surgeon stitches the stretched abdominal muscles together again. The plastic surgeon will also remove any excess skin and tighten what remains to give your tummy a taut, smooth appearance.
You will likely see results within 3-4 weeks, once the majority of the swelling begins to diminish. Keep in mind that swelling will continue to reduce over the next several months, and you will see the best results once all swelling is gone.
Yes. A tummy tuck procedure involves the removal of sagging or stretched skin, while liposuction only gets rid of excess fat. During your consultation with one of our expert patient care coordinators, you can discuss the possibility of receiving liposuction, as well.
Recovery generally takes around two weeks. You may want to take that time off work since you will primarily remain bent at the waist during this time period. You should avoid heavy physical activity for up to six weeks after the procedure.
